Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

when im typing on my keyboard sometimes linux thinks that Im holding the keeeeeeeeeeeeeeyss ... there it happened, it thought I held the e button, bu I didn't. (And I did write a 't' in that but, but it simply wasn't recognized by linux.
Im am using a standard logitech keyboard, and my XFConfig-4 has this section:
I have neither of the mentioned packages installed.
But "sticky keys" seems to describe the problem quite well.
I have tried to use the keyboard auto-repeat control both in XFree86-4 and in the KDE control-center earlier, with no solving of the problem.
Sticky keys along with a very slow "new key pressed" upppate seems to e theroblem. (just one sentence without my corrections...)
Suddenly the space ke, the 6666666666666 is turned onas if pressed, while I didn't touc t at all !!!
Pleae help, I will do my est to control mylanguage :-))
I understand that you are frustrated at your keyboard, but is there any particular reason why your backspace key doesn't work?
Just because you are having the problem, it doesn't mean that you must feel obliged to share the output of the problem with us - delete the characters that are not required, it will make your post much easier to read.
Dont be afraid to pull apart your keyboard
and give it a good clean
a vacuum cleaner with those neat little attachments wont go astray either
I do mine quite regularly and you'll be surprised how much crap and dust gets in there
JUST remember to make a note of how all your keys are arranged !!
He said he tried 3 different keyboards and it works OK in Windows so it must not be the hardware.
It sounds like the problem is that it's not checking for keypresses/releases often enough. I dunno how to fix it but maybe that will help someone else fix it...
