Description Bill Nottingham 2008-02-21 23:12:40 EST
Description of problem:

Arrow keys are now broken under gnome for me, using a standard 105/US layout.

Up-arrow triggers the screenshooter (!?). Right arrow shows now events.
Left-arrow yields keycode 113, keysym 0xfe08, ISO_Next_Group. Down-arrow yields
keycode 116 (keysym 0xffec, Super_R)

I realize this could be one of about 1000 things that broke this.

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

CTRL-ALT-{backspace,F1,F2,etc.} are also broken, even on the GDM login screen.

Assigning to the X server under the 'that's what actually changed recently'
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2008-02-22 06:31:49 EST
Reassigning to Kristian under the 'that's most likely broken' methodology (and
it has severely changed recently as well).
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2008-02-22 14:12:14 EST
Reassinging per #desktop discussion.

CTRL-ALT-{backspace,F1,F2} is fd.o bug 14584. Patch in the bug. The arrow keys:

- Old X server defaults to pc105
- New X server defaults to evdev, even if pc105 is in xorg.conf
- If you have a saved pc105 xkb config in GNOME, GNOME attempts to apply it on
top of the evdev config.
- Bad things happen.
