Description albert vilella 2004-07-22 17:37:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
This happened suddenly, in the middle of a gnome session:

I don't get any input from the keyboard under a gnome session, I can't
even Ctrl+Alt+F1, although the rest of the system is fully responsive,
and I can log out with the mouse.

It's working all fine with a kde session or an xfce session.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login in a gnome session
2. no input from keyboard
3. all working fine with kde sessions or xfce sessions

Actual Results:  no input from keyboard

Expected Results:  keyboard normally working

Additional info:

it was working fine, but then suddenly fails every time. I logged out
several times, rebooted completely, and consistently fails only in
gnome sessions.

I hope someone has a hint of any locked-file that has been mistakingly
kept or such.

the session login is working fine, that's why I can log in a kde
session or xfce session without problems

I deleted my .gconfd/ and .gconf/ accounts, and I recovered the
keyboard functionality, but obviously I lost all my gnome configurations.

Do you have any idea what you were doing at the time to trigger the
problem? Have you seen the problem again since?

Comment 3 albert vilella 2004-07-27 09:36:05 UTC
I was using openoffice writer.
I can append my the ".gnome/" ".gnome2/", ".gnome_private/",
".gnome2_private/", if that can be of any help.

Since I moved those directories, and ".gconf/" and ".gconfd/", all is
smoothly working, although I had to reconfigure most of the desktop
shortcuts and preferences I had before.

Okay, moving to openoffice on the off chance the guys have seen this
before - probably a keyboard grab leak

Comment 5 Caolan McNamara 2004-12-09 12:58:03 UTC
never seem or heard of this in OOo

Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2004-12-15 20:45:07 UTC
hmm, sounds like

If you still (long time ago I know) have your original
perhaps attaching it to that issue would help to isolate the reason
for this
