Re: GTK3 -- query mouse pointer coordinates for keyboard input?

Deprecated methods should not raise an exception. Deprecated methods shouldn't stop working because they're deprecated.

Indeed Ruby GTK3 bindings do not offer undocumented
gdk_event_get_device() for key events, and using deprecated
window.get_pointer() raises an exception.

So my current solution is: I already have motion notify events for my
drawing area, so for each such event I make a copy of event.x and
event.y data and use that value for next key event. Seems to work, at
least my program works again as with GTK2. Maybe I should additional
store the x, y values for each enter_notify event, otherwise coordinates
may be invalid at the border of the drawing area when mouse pointer is
coming from outside.

I will indeed consider filing a bug report.
