#StackBounty: Alt-H key not working in KDE Plasma

Bounty: 50

Recently I have installed Fedora 25 Linux with KDE Plasma 5.8.5.

Programs running in konsole or in xterm do not receive any keyboard input when Alt+H is pressed. All other Alt+H combinations are fine, but Alt+H does nothing. I have searched the keyboard shortcuts in the system settings, but do not see Alt+H bound to any function.

I have tried a different keyboard layout to rule it out as a problem source.

How can I check what is consuming the Alt+H keypress or otherwise debug this issue?


Quick check on the command line (i.e. in a terminal window): press ctrl-V alt-X, you should see ^[X (i.e. [escape] X). Works for all letters except H on my system.
