Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

The controls in the Binding Of Isaac demo are not configurable, and are set to the standard WASD for movement. I'm using the "English (Dvorak alternative international no dead keys)" keyboard layout by default, but I'm quite happy to change it for a gaming session. This normally works just fine, but the Flash application seems not to notice - No matter which keyboard layout I use (in Firefox and Chromium) it reacts as if Dvorak was still in effect.

Is there some way to temporarily enable a QWERTY keyboard layout temporarily for in-browser Flash applications? That is, without changing the default layout, and preferably without any big interventions like rebooting or installing extra software.

A shame this was closed. I'm having the same problem. –  Adriano Varoli Piazza Dec 20 '12 at 17:40
@AdrianoVaroliPiazza You might want to post a question like "How to force keyboard layout in all applications" for a more broadly applicable answer (doubtful) to this annoying problem. –  l0b0 Dec 26 '12 at 21:14
