http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi Ubuntu users, As someone accustomed to the thinkpad laptop keyboards I recently purchased Lenovo's ThinkPad USB Keyboard with TrackPoint (UK English). The device is plugged into my work machine which is a Dell Desktop. All the key-mappings appear fine at the login screen. Once I login however, the mapping goes haywire with numbers/symbols mapped onto right hand letter keys. Experimenting with different layouts with the gnome tool doesn't help. The trackpoint moves around and is fine, the letter mapping for right hand keys is broken. I cant seem to find a fix! Please offer any assistance, its a damn nice keyboard. Mark (Hardware)
