Hi, there is a long time without a problem, but now, I’ve got a little one a bit annoying. As the title say, there’s a weird thing happening when I type a key in activity overview mode on Gnome desktop.
It’s not an absolute problem, but it takes time to understand that several letters spawned in the search bar, erase them and make a new research to open an application.
Here, on the picture, I typed only one “m” on my keyboard, but two others joined their friend. So I browsed the Web for people who get the exactly same problem, but I’ve only found one post on AskUbuntu, and it is now down with a 404 error.
So, have you some solution here for this strange problem ?
So, I don’t know where it came from, but now it’s fixed by log out/log in in gnome shell. I guess that’s the best solution for this problem… If someone has this error and has a better explication, feel free to add your answer.
I have the same problem, every time I press the W window key, in the gnome search box when typing anything the first letter is duplicated. I’m using the system with everything updated to the latest version.
I have the exact same issue. I had the issue initially every time I installed. Then, I decided to unplug my keyboard during install and use it only in bluetooth mode. Everything worked perfectly. Then, I literally just updated 10 minutes ago and it is doing the exact same thing. I will simply hit the meta key and start typing, and whichever letter I type, it types double and I have to backspace and keep typing. And to answer the questions to asked the others.
I don’t have another keyboard to try
It happens with all letters
-Every time I go into overview and start typing
-It did not happen in the live ISO
-I just disabled all extensions and it did nothing
I will try a new user account but have low hopes.
If it were a keyboard issue it seems that it would have done it on the several other distros I have tested over the past week.
And even more specifically, after my install a half-hour ago, it was great. I updated, and it is doing it again.
Update: Machine freezes and does not leave black screen when coming out of deep sleep. However, this has happened on several distros using Gnome, so I am almost certain it is an Nvidia config issue.
This is relevant because I just got home and had to reboot from said lockup and the keypress issue is now back. Exact same behavior. I’ll check the config files all the same.
I think we may have narrowed it down more. I have a Keychron K8 keyboard. I normally use it wired over USB, however, I had noticed that one of the ways I tried to workaround the issue when reinstalling was connecting over Bluetooth in the live ISO, letting the installer finish, and then when I would boot into the OS, it was fine for a bit. I’m going to start paying closer attention to how it is connected and when exactly the issue starts up. As I type this, everything is perfect. I am unplugged and connected over BT. But there seems to be a lead, at least.
I’m having this problem too. Just installed latest fresh Manjaro Gnome release and dist-upgraded. I don’t know what that ‘R’ means in that fix as it does nothing in that run box if I type it and press enter.
