Just installed a new fresh vanilla Manjaro KDE and noticed that my ‘w’-key seized to respond. The keyboard works perfect in other Distros (POP, Fedora) but not in Manjaro KDE and other keyboards behave the same as this, making me believe it is down to OS-level. Although, once in a while, ‘w’ does show up after a keypress. And capital ‘W’ works everytime. The two keyboards I have tested are Razer Blackwidow Ultimate and Logitech TK820.
Sad to admit that I am a noob when it comes to Manjaro/Arch/KDE. Greatful to find out how I can debug this. Any help is appreciated.
And yes, I had to paste the w in each of the above words needing them in this post.
Here’s the locale config
localectl status System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LC_NUMERIC=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_TIME=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_MONETARY=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_PAPER=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_NAME=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_ADDRESS=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_TELEPHONE=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_MEASUREMENT=sv_SE.UTF-8 LC_IDENTIFICATION=sv_SE.UTF-8 VC Keymap: sv-latin1 X11 Layout: se
showkey responds with
keycode 17 press keycode 17 release
when I press the ‘w’-key
