keyboard problem


I have recently installed RedHat 8 on my Toshiba laptop and have been having trouble with my keys double typing. I found a solution to this which requires me to edit the driver for my kkeyboard. How do I find and edit this file?

Thanks,

Oh man I had the same problem with my toshiba laptop. It only double types in the gui right. Heres the fix for it. You have to edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file. You will see the following line in the file:

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
Option "XkbDisable"

You have to comment out the Option line so that it looks like this:

# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
# Option "XkbDisable"
