Summary: unable to reassign standard shortcut for backspace to
"up" instead of "back"
Platform: Neon Packages
Under KDE4, I would always assign the backspace key to the "up" action, rather
than "back" as it is my preferred way of navigating in Dolphin. In Plasma
Desktop 5.8.1, however, attempting to reassign this key results in an
"Ambiguous shortcut detected" warning.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open System Settings -> Shortcuts -> Standard Shortcuts
2. Find the "Back" action (first entry), and disable the alternate shortcut
3. Find the "Up" action, and add the alternate shortcut for the backspace key
(will show as "Backspace").
4. Open Dolphin. Press backspace key twice.
First backspace press activates the "up" action, navigating to the parent
folder. Subsequent backspace presses will trigger the error, "The key sequence
'Backspace' is ambiguous. Use 'Configure Shortcuts' from the 'Settings' menu to
solve the ambiguity. No action will be triggered."
I should be able to reassign "backspace" to activate the "up" rather than the
The "back" shortcut is apparently never getting unassigned in step 2 above. The
reason the first keypress in step 4 above seems to work is because there is no
valid back action until the first folder navigation is made. Once there is a
valid target for "back", pressing the backspace key attempts to activate "back"
and "up" at the same time, resulting in the error.
