I have a ‘TUXEDO InfinityBook Pro 14 v5’, with a self-installed manjaro on it. I have the following problem with my internal keyboard and the default behaviour of the Fn key:
When I boot up my laptop, I’ll first have to put in my encrypted harddrive password. This works fine and without any problems. Next, is the GDM login, where I have to put in a different password, which works well without any problems. After the login, it doesn’t matter what I do, but the Fn key seams to be “always on”, so for example the (german layout) key “O”, which would only print a ‘6’ with Fn enabled is always printing ‘6’ and I have to press Fn to get to the normal configuration, which would be the ‘O’.
So, until the GDM login everything works normal, no Fn “default on”, afterwards it’s flipped.
Next step: docking station. I’ll add my docking station via USB-C (I don’t know if that matters, but it is this one: i-tec triple 4k dock), where (due to some displaylink problems) the external monitors won’t work, but the attached mouse and keyboard work quite well. That external keyboard has no Fn key, so that’s working everytime. But, now the most weird thing: After I’ve plugged in the docking station, the Fn key switches back to “default off”, and I can type like it should be, both with the internal as well as external keyboard.
So, I’m clueless. Does anybody can point me in any direction where to log (configuration files?), what to try (how to debug?) or, that would be awesome, already has a solution for that problem
