View Full Version : [ubuntu] Keyboard hot-keys cause mouse problems after upgrade (10.04->10.10)

October 11th, 2010, 07:40 AM
I upgraded Ubuntu from 10.04 to 10.10 and noticed a problem with my keyboard's hot-keys. If I press any of the additional hot-keys on the keyboard the first button on my mouse becomes stuck. It is as though I constantly pressed it. Any other input methods become unusable, except the power button.

The keyboard is Microsoft Digital Media Keyboard Pro Keyboard. This problem manifests whether hot-keys keys are assigned or not. The problem didn't appear in 10.04.

I'm not Linux-literate enough to reliably find the relevant logs, but I noticed that Xorg.0.log contains parts that seem to deal with the keyboard.

Any help is appreciated. I can simply not use the hot-keys but being accustomed in using them, I often hit them by accident and have to boot simply to have my machine operational again.
