Preventing accented character popup from blocking Lux

Post by dustin » Wed Feb 06, 2019 3:27 pm

Problem: when you push and hold a key on Mac a menu pops up with alternative forms of that letter. When you try to use the z function for popping country down to 1 it freezes in the chat text box, with the z, and keyboard commands stop working.

Solution: launch the Terminal application, and copy-paste this command in:

Code: Select all

defaults write com.sillysoft.lux ApplePressAndHoldEnabled -bool false
Then restart Lux.
