Double key issue, again 2.3.0

HI!

Just noticed that Window/QSO list/Filter/SQL console has again double key syndrome.
Every keypress produces 2 characters to console: hheellpp!!

At least when cqrlog is run with Fedora 28/LXDE

Quickly tested some other inputs, but did not find any other place than SQL console with this bug.
This is not the first time and playing with "input mode selector" and Ibus solved this last time. Now I just have to dig out what was done at that time.

Any other distro having same issue?

Now tested with ham computer that has Fedora27/LXDE.

SQL console works normally. So there is a difference between F27 and F28 that causes double strokes with one keypress.
Might exist in some other linux distros, too.

It is the input method chooser in LXDE that makes doubling.
If it is not found from start menu it can be started from console with command
im-chooser
Working selection there is "No input method" and after setting that log out/ log in must be done.
After that no more double characters with one key press in SQL console.

I'm seeing the same thing in

I'm seeing the same thing in Linux Mint 18.3, but I don't have an im-chooser option using cinnamon desktop. Any ideas?

Hi !

There must be something similar. Try to google with words:
linux mint input method chooser
Also if you do not need special characters try to set ibus off if it is in use, it may also effect doubling.

Ha! It was right in front of

Ha! It was right in front of me under Preferences -> Input Method.

However, still some strange behavior. When I opened this, it was already set to "None," as advised. However, I logged out and logged back in anyway, and now the SQL console windows is behaving normally - no more repeats. I wonder if maybe there was some default value in there that was wrong, and opening the program for the first time set it up correctly by default?

Anyway, I'll take it. Thanks and 73. Hope to get you into my log someday, too!
