Question Keyboard Shortcuts are not working anymore!!!


Hi,
I use KDE and after installing some packages on debian3.1r2, my keyboard gone mad..
Ctrl+Alt+Something is not working anymore, i mean ctrl+alt+del,fn,etc.
Although i made sure , when installing packages, that synaptic doesn't remove any other packages during the process, apparently some component of one of the recently installed packages overwrited some configuration file that responsible for this issue.
I tried to fix it by means of Control Center->Keyboard Shortcuts, but the only thing i could change is to make a shortcut Alt+Del for log on screen,but it strangely doesn't recognize ctrl+alt+something only alt+something..., also i couldn't find there a command for switching VT, i can't switch virtual terminals anymore , the (Alt)+(->,<-) for going back or forward in browsers doesn't work ether!

Plz excuse my english,
any help will be appreciated.

Did you solve this issue? I am having the SAME PROBLEM! I hope someone may have some insight. I am thinking, perhaps a config file with shortcuts was modified when an upgrade occurred. I just upgraded and ran into the issue.

Ok, the problem has now been solved with the VT terminal shortcuts from X. I just updated again today, and there where new X11 packages that seemed to have fixed the problem. Be sure to update, yet again if you see this issue. I cannot guarantee that other future released updates will not have the bug re-instate itself, however.

My distro is Mandriva 2006.

thanks for your response, but my X server has been screwed up by me recently, and i'm doing all things only through cli...
it may sounds funny , but i'm starting to understand all these people stating that "no gui , no headache..."

To each their own, I suppose. But this day in age, I don't see how you could get by with no GUI, unless you are developing console based apps, or running it as a server or something. Imagine browsing the internet with only text.. I've done it.... not really easy to navigate around or much fun. The concept of 'windowing' applications is a useful one, as you can have multiple things running at the same time and EASILY switch between all of them. You can do this *kind-of* within bash, but it is not as simple.

You are absolutely right, and i'm not going to argue with you man...
the only thing i can add is that i should try all stuff with CLI you've mentioned too, just to see how it's inconvenient, in order to estimate the real value of GUI...
