    Default Bug in OpenSUSE 13.2

    In OpenSUSE 13.2 x64, I normally configure F9 to run the normal update check. Under Software Updater Settings I set the keyboard shortcut to F9 for the updater. When I then press F9, the menu is triggered. I tried switching to another key shortcut, F10, and the same thing happened.

    _Which_ menu is triggered?

    And what Desktop Environment are you using? It sounds like KDE, and I suppose you mean the sofware updater in the system tray, right?

    I just tried that, and it seems to work fine here.
    After setting the shortcut 'F9', now when I press 'F9' the software updater pops up.

    Sorry it took a while to respond. I tried it again and the menu is triggered. I am using KDE and using the x64 bit version of OpenSUSE 13.2, I should point out that my system is rather old (~5 years). Could there be hardware issues causing this problem?

    If I am not mistaken, I think wolfi asked:

    What a fool I am sometimes! I forgot to include that it is the Start Menu that is triggered.

    Well, and what happens if you do _not_ assign F9 or F10 to the software updater?
    Is the Start Menu triggered then as well?

    Can you use the other F-Keys?
    If your keyboard has a Fn key, try to press that first or in combination with F9 or F10.

    What does the "Shortcuts" configuration window say when you assign F9 or F10, does it recognize the keys correctly?

    Does changing the keyboard layout make any difference?

    And run "xev" in a terminal window, press F9 and/or F10 and post the output, please.

    Ok, same thing happens when I change keyboard layout from the default generic 104 key to a specific Lenovo family of keyboards. The output from xev (when the F9 key is assigned to the updater and pressed) is as follows (the F10 key when no longer assigned to the updater does nothing, as I would expect. The last part is me closing the start menu with the mouse so that I can copy and paste the xev text.

    And what if you choose a different keyboard layout in YaST->Hardware->System Keyboard Layout and try as a new user?

    The output from xev (when the F9 key is assigned to the updater and pressed) is as follows (the F10 key when no longer assigned to the updater does nothing, as I would expect. The last part is me closing the start menu with the mouse so that I can copy and paste the xev text.
    ...

    " XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (0d) "
    XFilterEvent returns: False
    ...
    This is the only relevant thing I see in there.

    Did you press/release the return key?
    Does the same appear when you press F10 (without having it assigned to anything)?

    As I said, I cannot reproduce that here, everything's working as expected.
    And I have no idea what could cause something like this at the moment...

    I have no clue what could be causing this to happen either. Having said that, if it works fine on your system, there must be something intrinsically problematic with my system. I know certain Linux distributions have trouble running off of this particular version of the system BIOS. It's old and will eventually get replaced. Thanks for your help.
