Thread: SuSE 11.2 Arrow Keys in Konsole don't work

    Default SuSE 11.2 Arrow Keys in Konsole don't work

    Hi,

    I have just updated my 11.1 Suse to 11.2 and
    now the left / right arrow key don't work anymore
    when typing into konsole.

    What could be the reason?

    Thanks

    This workaround helps:

    Start one time as root "sax2" and quit it again
    (without any changes).

    Now the arrow keys work.

    Hi,

    I have a similar problem. I've just installed suse 11.2.
    When hitting the arrow up key in a konsole window the
    screen snapshot program windows pops up. Also several characters
    are wrong, e.g. < instead of | or @ instaed of ...

    I tried and run sax2 and now most but not all characters are
    displayed correct. But still for example the arrow key does not
    work at all (at least snapshot does not pop up any longer).

    I rely heavily on the use of xterm, so any idea could be the reason?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I fideled around a bit. Its a very strange behaviour. When auto login is set, then ksnapshot pops up when hitting the up arrow key.This happens in all applications. Also several characters are
    set wrong. Running sax2 helps a bit (but only up to next login), but now the up arrow key does not work. When switching off auto login and log in manualy, only the up arrow key does not work.

    I hope somebody has an idea how to solve this problem. Suse 11.2
    is useless for me as long as the keyboard does not work proper.
    Meanwhile I've fallen back to 11.1!

    Thanks a lot!

    Same effect with my MS Natural Keyboard Pro. I also tried a couple of things, but across all applications in KDE (not only konsole):
    * arrow keys do not work (arrow up starts screenshot)
    * delete does not work
    * right alt gr produces a new line
    * function keys do not work

    I upgraded the hal to the latest factory release with no effect. I tried to start without xorg.conf, edited xorg.conf, new sax2-generated xorg.conf with same effect.

    I suggest trying to use IIRC xmodmap tool.

    amazing!!

    this may be the openSUSE equivalent of the M$-reboot-and-all-is-well
    mysterious, smoke and mirrors guru magic!!

    maybe it will become as widely prescribed and as effective--we shall see..

    </sigh>

    Ok, found it on my computer. I created once a xmodmap.conf file for mapping previously unmapped keys of the MS Natural Keyboard Pro. This worked fine under the kbd driver. Now I upgraded from 11.1 to 11.2. Since the driver model changed from kbd to evdev, this mapping obviously caused chaos. After I removed the file, everything worked again.
    If you have some trouble, you'll find a lot of additional hints when googling for "evdev cursor keys" or similar...
