    Re: bluetooth keyboard shift and ctrl key don't work

    Oddly enough, search upon search up until now yielded no answers. Moments ago, I found this thread:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1368160

    There, you'll find a workaround that makes things work better, altho not yet flawless...

    I know this is a very old thread, but no one has responded with an answer and there's many people still waiting. I'd like to throw my hat in as one of them.

    I'd also like to bump this again, simply for the fact that there's been no real attention to the issue, anywhere that I've seen. the other thread that I referenced in my last post has been ERRONEOUSLY marked as solved, while the issue still remains, and can be quite frustrating to deal with, at times...

    The workaround didn't work for you? http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...61&postcount=2

    this is a very interesting thread. From those xev logs, the keys could only read the press event but not the release event. You guys should test it on the tty console. So you can isolate it to the xserver. Since xev does not neccessary work without the xserver, a simple test is try to use the console interrupt ^C or ^Z or whatever. Run a long console program and try to stop it If it worked then the xserver has problems.

    If you cant use any worth around to enter the tty terminal, you should temporary disable you boot manager so you boot to the console.

    idoitprone: My apologies, but it is NOT xorg causing this. true terminal / grub menu is affected as well.

    pmp6nl: the workaround you refer to is NOT, even by it's own author's description, acceptable. It requires huge further tweaking of key-repeat settings, so that while you hold the letter you want capitalized, to push shift, you don't get a million lower-case instances of it that must be erased. tThen, it happens lLiIkKeE tThHiIsS. oOf course, this then requires deleting the erroneous preceding lower-case letter, before you can get on to typing further... no bueno, not even really a workaround. it brings further error than it works around...

    thanx to both of you, though, for your attention to this1!

    then, pmp6nl should also include that in the bug report. More information is better for those maintainers.

    Re: bluetooth keyboard shift and ctrl key don't work

    Fyi: I had the same problem (using ubuntu studio in xfce) and found that turning on sticky keys resolved the issue.

    No worries now. As evidenced by caps in this sentence and punctuation like ?? and >< }{ Etc Etc.
