Summary0008900: Pressing alt+key combinations doesn't work on Ubuntu
DescriptionThe single most annoying thing caused by this is that you cannot directly attack creatures that you are not already in a fight with. Such as when killing a friendly creature. You can, however, throw something at him which will usually take the conflict level from encounter to lethal, at which point you can attack them without having to confirm.

I am pretty sure it is caused by the fact that the alt key is reserved for opening the dash and many other system functions, so there's probably not much to do about it other than change the alt+key combinations into something else, which isn't likely to happen. But I'm going to report it anyway.
Steps To Reproduce1) Be on ubuntu
2) Do something that requires alt+key action (such as attacking a friendly creature)
3) ????
4) Profit!
