Unhappy My control key suddenly stopped working


Hi,
I am working on SUSE 10.2. It had been behaving fine. But all of a sudden, control key seems to stop working. Any key combination with ctrl key is not working. Please help me to solve it out.

Thanks,

Could be keyboard hardware failure. Can you substitute a similar "known good" keyboard?

Thanks,
Try the control key on other side of your keyboard. The reason keyboards have two control keys is the same reason people have a wife and a girlfriend -- you never know when there'll be a hardware failure.
