    Hello,

    First of all I don't know if it's the right place to post this but here we go.

    When I get one of our games built and I run it on linux machine (latest Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit, 4.17.8 kernel) I get some unexpected behaviour of some input boxes.

    When I press the shift/control/alt modifier keys without any actual letter - some weird characters get written in the box. Only few inputs don't suffer from that, no idea why.

    Also I'm using Colemak keyboard (it should also affect Greek layout for accents) layout that support key combinations like: altgr+t e (first key combination creates accent letter and 2nd combines it with desired letter). That seems to not work in any input at all.

    I'd appreciate any help with that.

    Cheers,
    Furai

    We already fixed this internally and will try to fix it in 2018.2 soon. Sorry.

    There was another Unity version released but this issue hasn't been fixed yet, right?

    No need to be sorry. I see it's fixed in 2018.3 beta. Found it in changelog. Will that get backported to 2018.2?

    Yes, it will. Is scheduled but responsible folks have not gotten around to it just yet.
