Keyboard problem: key repeat not working after reboot

Post by warriorofthelight »

Since a few days I have this new issue I have never experienced before. Even though the key repeat option is active in the keyboard settings dialog, it's not working. I have to manually deactivate and activate it again, then it works as usual. After a reboot, the problem is the same again. I did not change keyboards or any other hardware recently. This has come up recently, not sure but I guess somewhere around beginning of April'24.

Looks like a bug to me, there's nothing I can think of that causes this. Any ideas?

Edit: it also happens after re-enabling key repeat, without a reboot. Not sure exactly when, but after a while (minutes), key repeat stops working. Even though the option is still enabled in the settings.

Please generate an overview of your system like this:
- Launch a terminal window (this is how to launch a terminal window);
- Make the terminal window full screen, to avoid chopped lines;
- Copy/paste this command into the terminal:

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxxxpmrz
(if you type: the letter F is a capital letter, and don't omit the space after inxi!)

Press Enter.

Copy/paste the output into your next message.

Here you go. I just realized that even after re-enabling key repeat, it just ceases to work again some time later. Just happened this evening. I guess I just haven't realized it before, but now I paid extra attention. I can re-enable it by switching off and on the option in the keyboard settings. Until it stops working again I guess.

Code: Select all

$ inxi -Fxxxpmrz
