Keyboard problem

Postby Zsombor » Wed Feb 20, 2008 23:18

I've tried to upgrade from a recent gentoo installation to sabayon, with the sabayon overlay + equo. It mostly went without major problems, I have a new kernel, new nvidia driver, new firefox etc, so far, so good. The only major, problem which i've encountered is that my keyboard under X is seriously broken, I mean, my cursor keys are not working anymore (At first gnome tried to create a screenshot everytime when I've pressed Up - I've figure out in the 'Hotkey' configuration panel, that my 'Up' button cause a 'Print' message, the down 'ISO Next Group', and so on :s ) Can anyone guess, what happened? I've tried to downgrade the kernel, the libxklavier package, the xkbcomp, and several others, but nothing helped.

changing xorg requires reinstalling your input drivers - did you try that?

I've had a similar issue that I'm trying to figure out. I had the same "screenshot" behavior with my up arrow too. Somewhere in remerging xorg-server xorg-x11 and xf86-input-keyboard that got fixed. However, I still have an issue where my 'end' key will open the kmenu. Also, 'alt' doesn't pull down the window menu any more, but it does do things like alt+tab and alt+f2 just fine. It's a little irritating. If you happen to fix your issue, I'd be very interested to hear how.

This is true if you are using evdev input driver. If you are using kbd driver you should add
Code: Select all
Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"
in the Server Flags section of /etc/X11/xorg.conf instead.
