I’m not quite sure if that behavior was already there and I just didn’t notice OR if I messed something up.
But now I’ve got a really annoying problem, when I hit my SUPER key (e.g. windows key) twice in a row, suddenly my Manjaro/XFCE switches to tty1.
I am still able to get back to the Xsession via Alt+F7 but still, that annoys the heck out off me. I’m using this setup for about a half year and didn’t noticed this “feature” yet…
I think I maybe have “discovered” a second keymap layer on my keyboard, because there is also some kind of lock printed onto the SUPER key as well. And therefore imho it would make sense, at least more or less to provide some actual for this second keymap of the key. Probably just goes a complete wrong
Maybe you could tell me a way to inspect the keymap/layer or what ACTUALLY happens (in the background) after hitting twice the SUPER key
hmmmmm WELL after a bit of research how to display the raw keyboard data…mehh, well it seems to be a bit weird, imho at least to me. I got the following output by xev | sed -n 's/[ ]*state.* \([^ ]*\)).*/\1/p' ( stolen line from superuser.org but GREAT line)
Super_L (I did press the SUPER key only once, the rest of thekeystrokes aren’t mine)
F1 Alt_L (now I’m actually back typing Alt+F7 to get back to tty7) F7
the whole thing becomes even more weird, because I hoped that the “FN” on my Keyboard doesn’t do anything (at least what I get as input in the console) maybe it’s somehow messing with the modifier keys in general?
Is there a way to disable the ttyx switching on the Alt+Fx Keys, BUT still being able to switch tty’s if I’m e.g. trapped in tty1 or need to restart X with some other tty?
sooo, weird stuff. I’ve realised it only is possible to switch tty1 with this Ctrl+Alt+Fx Keycombo…there is a way to diable it (with localectl) but then I would be stuck in tty1 and wouldn’t be able to get back to tty7 easily.
Furthermore I saw, but only once a notify message pop up, mentioning that sticky keys are enabled…WHAT? how can the get enable without pressing any key, in that moment I were reading something, therefore not even a finger was near the keyboard.
It seems to be Shift key, if you press it for long enough, you activate that thing, if you press it for 8 seconds it goes away. I am searching for a way to disable it for good but no luck so far, maybe has to do that I use GDM (I think is a gnome feature, who knows, I’ll keep researching)
