FreeRDP on Kubuntu: Autohotkey on remote, Autokey local

in flag

On my local machine (Kubuntu), I use Autokey. On the remote machine (Windows) I use Autohotkey. I have lots of shortcuts setup on both machines. When I'm on the server through FreeRPD and I use a shortcut (like CTRL-NUMPAD2) that exists on both machines, both routines run on the server. I switch back and forth often, so I'd rather not suspend Autokey on the local machine. When I'm running FreeRDP full screen, is there a way to have only the shortcut on the remote machine heard?

(This same issue also happens for the meta key: while in fullscreen, I would expect FreeRDP to capture keyboard, but it doesn't.)

Ubuntu version is irrelevant. FreeRDP has had this issue since I first installed 18, it's just lately become enough of an issue to post over.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
