Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 650118
Key Shift is repeating infinitely
Last modified: 2012-04-03 11:27:56 EDT
Description of problem:
When I set shortcut for keyboard switch to: Both-Shifts (which is long term czech standard). When I press and hold one Shift Key keyboard layout starts to switch infinitely from cz-us-cz-us-....... after while (0.5s) until other shift is pressed.
It changes keyboard layout accidentally when I type something (with lower and upper case) slowly .
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
In Fedora 13/14 is the same problem
This problem seems to be HW specific. It appears on Lenovo ThinkPad X201 only. (but on external USB keyboard is the same) On other my computers it is working without problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press one Shift Key
2. keyboard layout starts to switch infinitely from cz-us-cz-us-.......
3. it stops when I press other shift
after shift holding keyboard layout starts to switch infinitely
shift is waiting to press other shift
It is Fedora specific. In Ubuntu 10.04 on the same HW keyboard is working OK.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
