Keyboard Delay Issue: 2 sec pause?

Okay … so I have an issue with the keyboard I need help on. I’ve tried everything to resolve the issue but can’t seem to fix it as I’m kinda a novice at linux OS. The problem began on an update I installed approximately 3 weeks ago.

When I type, it takes about 2 seconds for the character to appear. I’ve tweaked with the delay, but only found that is a setting used for optimizing the use of repeating characters.

I’ve also tried going through YasT to fix the issue as recommended in this post:

keyboard delay - Linux Forums

And that didn’t work either.

So now I’m lost, and I am REALLY sick of using XP just so I can type correctly when I’ve got this beautiful, smooth running OS begging for my attention. - lol

Can anyone please troubleshoot this for me or has anyone else had this issue?
