I've installed NetBeans M8 with Ruby module via Update manager, but Ruby editor
does not react to Enter in both existing project case and new Ruby project. No
exception thrown on Enter, just nothing happens.
Are you using any language-specific keyboards? Which locale are you running in? Do any other editors
(for example Java) work correctly? (e.g. Enter key works). Does restarting the IDE help? Does running the
IDE with another userdir temporarily (e.g. start it with netbeans --userdir /tmp/keyboardtest) help?
Running with another userdir worked out. Restart of IDE did not. I'm using
english locale on Kubuntu Linux and a typical laptop keyboard. Nothing
I am not sure whether we should fix it as WONTFIX or WORKSFORME. It was a clean
installation so I have no clue what corrupted user directory metadata.
There have been a lot of keyboard related changes lately (to support different keybindings on different
platforms - Macs need different ones in some cases for example).
While these things should work from one stable release to another, this unfortunately does happen from
one dev build to another.
Thanks a lot for reporting it and hopefully you'll be able to use the IDE better now... The Return key tends
to be useful when coding :-)
Reassigning this issue to newly created 'ruby' component.
Changing target milestone of all resolved Ruby issues from TBD to 6.0 Beta 1 build.
