View Full Version : [gnome] Troubles when typing in Gnome applications

July 9th, 2012, 07:54 AM
Hello to everyone!
It sounds strange but I can not type in Gnome applications: after 2-3 symbols application stops showing what I am typing. At the same time, Alt-Tab is working perfectly and I can switch between windows. If, let's say, I open a file with gedit I can type only several symbols and after that it just stops to show what I am typing. If I switch to another app and comes back to gedit I can print several symbols again.
This strange behavior appears also in other gnome apps (synaptic, gcalc) and under other environments (like KDE and Xfce). At that, Opera works normally, kate/kwrite works normally and it seems that apps from other desktops work normally.
I have a usb keyboard and it worked fine under all previous versions of ubuntu. Problem appeared after upgrade 11.04->11.10->12.04.
Does anyone have any ideas how to find the troublemaker?
Kind regards,

I've found the troublemaker. It is gxneur. Somehow it was eating all symbols not giving them to gnome apps.
The topic can be marked as solved.
