Laptop Keyboard Issues - Compaq V2000

Postby Black95GSX » Wed Oct 24, 2007 23:19

Long story short...

the CTRL key on the left side of the keyboard doesn't do anything... the right control works fine.


Ran XEV to see what's pulling up...
Right Control reads:
Keymap 109 Control_R

Left Control reads:
Keymap 185 NoSymbol



Not sure why this is... but I have a feeling the "nosymbol" is the problem.


the ALT keys report "R" and "L" appropriately.

I have HP L2000 which is similar to Compaq V2000 -- I don't know whether both CTRL keys work or not (I'll post again when I have time to test this)

You should be using an alternate Keyboard Layout in KDE

KDE Control Center ==>> Regional & Accessibility ==>> Keyboard layout ==>> make sure Enable Keyboard Layouts is checked

Try

Laptop/Notebook (Compaq Armada)
or
Hewlett-Packard Internet Keyboard (You can try other ones too, or map your keycode with a program)

I have the same issue with left-control, and I have seen a couple other complaints posted. I have a hp dv1000 laptop. Tried different keyboard layouts but no luck.

xev output is:

Code: Select all
KeyRelease event, serial 31, synthetic NO, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x66, subw 0x0, time 1337661415, (162,-8), root:(1261,388),
    state 0x0, keycode 185 (keysym 0x0, NoSymbol), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False

KeyPress event, serial 31, synthetic YES, window 0x1800001,
    root 0x66, subw 0x0, time 1, (257,0), root:(1,-6580),
    state 0x0, keycode 37 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:

    state 0x4, keycode 33 (keysym 0x70, p), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (10) ""
    XmbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (10) ""
    XFilterEvent returns: False

    state 0x4, keycode 33 (keysym 0x70, p), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (10) ""
    XFilterEvent returns: False

    state 0x4, keycode 37 (keysym 0xffe3, Control_L), same_screen YES,
    XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
    XFilterEvent returns: False


A note here: I didn't press p at all. Somehow left_control is producing a combination. I think the correct keycode is 185 but I don't know how keycode 37 and keycode 33 "p" is coming into play.

This is really annoying. Any help is greatly appreciated.
