messed up hot keys?

Postby Zunden » Fri Nov 13, 2009 4:23

i'm having a bit of a problem with some of my hot keys. specifically i am having trouble with alt f2(worked since upgrade but not now), cntrl esc(don't know if it worked after upgrade), cntrl alt backspace(hasn't worked since i upgraded), and cntrl alt dlt. they don't do anything anymore. now i haven't used all of them since i upgraded to SL 5.0, so i'm not sure if some were just disabled by default or what. but most annoyingly is the alt f2 one. i use it all the time even since i upgraded. and today for some reason they just don't work. but my hotkeys for switching desktops, terminals, and closing windows(alt f4) still work. i haven't made any changes to my system or installed anything since it last worked.

i did find the post about a similar problem on here where they fixed it with rc-update del keymaps default && rc-update add keymaps boot

but i already have keymaps in my rc-update and it already says boot after it.

i also found a post for sl3.5 or something where they fixed a similar problem with the command: setxkbmap -option altwin:super_winH

this also did not work for me.

does anyone know what might have caused this? and how to get it working like normal again?
