Hi!
Hello I am running Xubuntu x64 and got a problem with my keyboard, I've tried to search but with no succes.

When i press and hold down any key on my keyboard it doesnt count it as pressed it just presses my key really really fast, for example when I'm playing WoW or Anarchy Online and I hold "W" to walk, my character stutters forward resetting the walk animation like im floating forward (this happens in both games).

I have no idea what to do please help :D (new to this forum and somewhat unfamiliar with *nix [used win7 until now, tried arch and centos before]).

I think it could be related to Wine now since i have the same problem on my laptop running Xubuntu x64 too.

I press down "W" and for like 1 sec it works fine and then it starts to stutter the keypress :<
