Hello,

I'm running Fedora Code 20 on virtual machine and Alt+F2 doesn't display the Run Command Prompt in KDE Shell.

Thanks.

Can you use the alt key for something else like, alt+click+drag a window around? If not, you may have set the alt key for something else like swapping keyboard layouts.

>> on virtual machine
Is your virtual running in Full Screen? If not, try that and then ALT-F2

Also: check your virtual software for hotkey settings, could be that the virtual software is catching the ALT key before your FC20 gets it.

(ALT-F2 (left alt) is working just fine in my FC20 btw)

Right alt is used for diacritic characters in many language settings...  My keyboard calls ir AltGr and QWERTY looks like this: @ł€¶ŧ←

initially, I have used left alt, so your hypothesis about diacritic characters is not true.

Gerwin's hypothesis is closer, I think. Virtual Box sometimes cannot turn off mouse integration when I press (Ctrl + I).
I have to turn off via menu.
