Question Keyboard keys messed up on Logitech Illuminated Keyboard


When I use the down arrow on my new keyboard it also does and enter key as well. When I use the left and right arrow keys and hold them it doesn't keep going. It just clicks once and I have to pressing it over and over again.

Any one know the correct settings to setup my keyboard? It's a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard.

How do you have your X set up? What driver are you using? Are you using the automatic setup, or do you have an xorg.conf configured?

If you're using the automatic config, then you're probably using the evdev driver, in which case you need to set your desktop environment's keyboard layout to "evdev-managed keyboard".

I'm using the automatic setting. In the keyboard settings in the System -> Preferences -> Hardware -> Keyboard The layout tab says Evdev Managed keyboard

Is there additional layout settings I need? Is there a way to tweak the evdev?
