Re: Suddenly, I can't type a quotes ("), but the keyboard is fine?

That's clearly not a coincidence; Shift-2=@ in the US layout(s) whereas Shift-2=" in the "Portuguese" layout. If you use latter you should be able to type @ with AltGr-2 or AltGr-q. I'm wondering if there's actually a bug/oddity in here anywhere. What is your physical keyboard's layout? US or PT? I...

Re: Suddenly, I can't type a quotes ("), but the keyboard is fine?

However, I'm noticing we haven't in fact considered the most straightforward possibility: you having by accident set " as a shortcut when you were playing around with Menu -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts. Not sure if the key-combo working with a different layout denies that possibility alre...

Re: Suddenly, I can't type a quotes ("), but the keyboard is fine?

It'll then also work if you simply delete the English (US) layout; layouts aren't additive or anything of the sort; you use one. No, I don't think you've found a generic bug. Although hard to imagine the only thing other than hardware --- and assuming from the description that Shift works with othe...

Re: Suddenly, I can't type a quotes ("), but the keyboard is fine?

Is it the same with both Shift keys? Yes, it is. I've managed to make the keyboard type the quotes but, well, it only works if I have the Portuguese layout as an option, too, AND only if it's above the US layout in settings: https://i.imgur.com/sVbpXFt.png I mean, this workaround technically works ...

Re: Suddenly, I can't type a quotes ("), but the keyboard is fine?

I will try, but it was working perfectly on the 5.0 kernel. I don't remember why I was running the 5.0 kernel even before I formatted, but I'm sure it had something to do with gaming.

Edit: I've tried it on the 4.15.0-62 kernel and, as predicted, it had no effect on my ability to type quotes.

(Crossposted from https://www.reddit.com/r/linuxmint/comments/d2c3k3/suddenly_i_cant_type_a_quotes_but_the_keyboard_is/) I have a mechanical US/PT keyboard that I use with the US layout.

Keyboard layout resets on restart.

I have a keyboard that is capable of two layouts, US and PT, but defaults to PT. I've set the keyboard preferences to EN (US) in the settings. Every time I start up the system I have to go to the applet and change the layout back to EN because it defaults to PT. Is there any way to make my choice pe...

[SOLVED] Cinnamon panel font rendering.

I'm trying to change the font in the cinnamon panel and I've succeeded but it doesn't seem to render the same way as it does on the window titles and stuff. You can see what I mean in the screenshot (drive link), especially if you look at the time. Am I seeing things, doing something wrong or did I ...

Good evening. I have to connect to a wifi network at my school (eduroam), which I have configured manually according to my school's instructions for linux (no certificate). The issue I have is that the wifi does connect, but it keeps disconnecting every few minutes, needing me to turn the wifi off a...

Yes because I tried to see if the problem was chrome. I didn't mention it as a main browser. In fact I pointed out that I'm currently using chrome 53. I appreciate your help, but please read what I wrote.

Re: URLs slow to open in the browser.

Right. I used to do sudo until I learned better. Still don't know how it relates to opening links though. Fixing the permissions seems to have made it better but there's still a noticeable delay. Note that it doesn't happen on Windows, my laptop, or a new user account. (So I'm definitely rejecting t...

Re: URLs slow to open in the browser.

The command is still running. In the meanwhile, could you explain why the permissions were wrong? None of the files it said permission denied on seemed to have anything to do with chrome or what application opens what.

Whenever I click a link on any application (Skype, Discord, a pdf, as long as it's not within Chrome), it takes between a few seconds to nearly half a minute for the browser to respond and open a new tab (page loading then proceeds at normal speeds).

Re: LM18 slow boot and shutdown.

1. Yes
2. No and I wouldn't see it as a solution because my system runs out of RAM pretty easily.
3. Upgrade from 17.3
