    I'm not sure where to post this, here or on the Alpha versions threads?

    Anyway, my OS is Linux Mint and I want to test the Alpha and Beta versions of Unity. Problem is that, if I run into a problem, I cannot file a bug report because, not using Ubuntu or CentOS, it will be immediately closed.

    I'm asking the people in charge of the development of the Linux editor, whatever its version, Full, Alpha or Beta: when someone like me, who does not use Ubuntu or CentOS, reports a bug, why don't you just try to reproduce this bug in Ubuntu and CentOS, just to make sure that it doesn't happen in those "supported" OSes?

    Thank you for reading.

    Few months ago I reported 2 issues while using Mint. The response was that they tried to reproduce it(on supported OS) but couldn't, so the case was closed.
    In my case, looks like, somebody from Unity tried to replicate it but I don't know if this is the norm.

    I wish it was! Maybe it's a matter of who reads your bug report? If it is, then I've been really unlucky...

    Here we go! I have a bug in 2020.2.0a18 and I'm afraid to report it...

    Unity not recognizing non English keyboards seems to have been fixed in 2020.2.0a18 and actually Ctrl+z works but now any code involving using the space bar doesn't work...

    The basic following code, for example:
    Code (CSharp):
    1. if (Input.GetKeyDown(KeyCode.Space))
    2.     Debug.Log("The space bar has been pressed.");

    Thank you for helping!

    No, it's something else. I don't know what code he used to get this "O" but in my case, when I press the space bar:
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  Debug.Log(Input.inputString);
    returns the following blank result,
    Code (CSharp):
    1.  
    2. UnityEngine.Debug:Log (object)
    3. Test:Update () (at Assets/Test.cs:23)
    which is normal since the space bar doesn't print anything. The problem is that if any code involves using the space bar, nothing happens when I press it.

    I would be grateful if you tested that on Ubuntu and I hope you'll get the same result otherwise, I am in big trouble... :( Did I mention that I'm getting this in 2020.2.0a18?

    The space bar being broken seems to be related to the fact that Unity not recognizing non English keyboards was fixed in a18.

    Hi,
    I wonder why not list all the versions.
    For example, unityhub can be downloaded to 2019.4.4.f1.
    However, the latest official version of unitysetup is only 2019.4.0f1




    Looking forward to your reply:)
