Lost CTRL and ALT keys
I've spent a day on this, and it's time to ask for help.
My CTRL and ALT keys have stopped working. CTRL-c give you a 'c'.
This is new. and it happened when around the time that I was trying to set screen capture and window screen capture to different keys.
(It could also have something to do with that around this time, I switched to KDE from Gnome, and back to Gnome.
(Those are the only two things that I can think of that could have had an effect.)
I'm running Centos 5.8 fully updated.
It's a Microsoft Wireless Comfort Keyboard 4000
I have basically the exact same machine next door. The CTRL and ALT keys work fine on this computer.
I've been comparing these two machines
/etc/sysconfig/keyboard is the same
/lib/kdb/keymaps/i386 are the same
/etc/X11/xorg.conf are the same, for the keyboards
I ran dumpkeys and the output files are the same on both machines.
On the 'bad' machine, Keyboard Shortcuts shows "Take a screenshot of a window" is set to Alt_R (I can't change it because pressing the Alt or CTRL keys does nothing) The Alt_R key does work.
Using gconf-editor - apps - metacity - global_keybindings
shows both computers have 'run_command_window_screenshot' set to <Alt>Print.
Where should I look next? I'm lost
