    "S" key always goes to system menu in VNC since 9->10 upgrade

    I just upgraded to 10.04 and almost everything worked but ...

    I can't type the "S" key anymore. It doesn't matter where I am, in a terminal, in Firefox, anywhere I type "S" the system menu in the top right corner of the screen drops down and I'm no longer in the window I was originally typing in.

    Note, I'm VNCed to the machine. If I use the machine directly or through a remote shell, no problem but if I'm VNCed, which is how I normally access the machine, then I get this "S" problem.

    Also, I'm VNCed to it's own desktop. Meaning I'm not sharing the main desktop.

    Any ideas how to fix this? I'm not sure even where to start looking.

    Thumbs up Re: "S" key always goes to system menu in VNC since 9->10 upgrade

    I got the same problem here since I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04TLS.

    "s" key always goes to system menu, and "d" key always goes to email/chat. All the other keys are fine.

    I am using "vnc4server" in the server side, and "vnc viwer 4" as the client.

    I can't type lowercase s. Uppercase S is fine.
    s brings up the menu of "Lock Screen, Logout....etc

    Ubuntu 10.04LTS
    vnc4server
    tried two different vncviewers from two different platforms, with identical result.

    Xvnc4 4.1.1
    UK keyboard layouts.

    Same issue here. I can get around it by using SSH for terminal server stuff from my main PC but this is a PIA.

    Anyone have a solution?
