After installing Ubuntu 12.04 on my ASUS G10AC, several keys on my keyboard (ASUS G01 KB) are not working at all. This includes both CTRL keys, both ALT keys, and both WINDOWS keys. When I use the keyboard layout utility I can see that pressing the CTRL and ALT keys correspond to using the left SHIFT key, whereas none of the WINDOWS keys gives any sort of response (no key is highlighted).
This isn't Ubuntu specific, but I'm hoping someone can help me out still. It's a keyboard issue on my old Acer TravelMate. Few of the keys refuse to work properly, namely: x, v, n, and left alt. Whenever I turn the laptop on, they completely fail to respond, but after brute forcing one of the keys (holding and pressing repeatedly), all of a sudden, all of the keys are back in full order.
I have an Acer Aspire 4330 with Ubuntu installed. The keyboard has a few extra buttons, some of which are accessed by the Fn button, and looks like the one in this image: here, though in addition to those shown are 4 buttons on the side: wifi toggle, vol +, vol -, and what I guess is bluetooth toggle...
-but what my question is: is how could I enable the additional buttons in Ubuntu?
I dual boot Ubuntu 13.10 saucy with Windows 8 Pro. I have a Belkin Keyboard. Every key seems to function on Win8 but not on Ubuntu, like the left and up arrow key along with the enter key near the number pad. Would I have to get a new keyboard?
I had the function keys (F-keys) on the Microsoft Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 working under Ubuntu 10.04 but they don't work under Ubuntu 12.04. This means I can't get a console with Ctrl-Alt-F1, for example.
Can anyone point me to a post which describes a fix for these keys?
I replaced the USB keyboard (105 keys) that I was using with a compact 86-key Sejin PS/2 keyboard. The PC BIOS has no problem with the Sejin, but Ubuntu assumes that I still have a 105-key keyboard attached and I can't log in (some keys produce no characters).
