When I open inkscape I can't type any characters. For example if I select the text tool, then click somewhere with the mouse, then click the letter e, instead of showing an "e" on the page, it opens the Edit menu.
Another example: If I choose File Save As. Then click to rename the file and then type a letter it uses the letter to change the directory. If for example I type "d", rather than putting a "d" in the file name, as I'd expect, it changes me to the Desktop folder.
I don't see others out there with this problem so I assume it is something simple on my part, but I can't figure out what. Any help?
