uQlx makes no attempt to emulate a keyboard. It just directly fills the QDOS

Pretty sure from my previous issues with this its a GFX driver issue on Linux 
rather than a wine issue.

But I cannot now remember which combos work and which do not.

Also make sure your desktop is not in Wayland mode as that is utterly broken :-(
