keyboard problem in fedora core 4

I got a problem using my keyboard in fedora. It was actually fine before. The problem is the keyboard respond so slow and you need to push hard on keys to make it function.
During log-in the keyboard runs smoothly but when Im on the desktop it just dont respond naturally.
When i run dmesg in console the keyboard is detected as:

input: AT Translated set 2 keyboard on isa0060/serio0

please help..thanks!

Hey... I've got a similar problem too. I've been looking for Control Center to check the rate delay, but everything just fine. Nothing bad sign happened. What is the problem caused by?

A key remained "stuck" for too long and the "Sticky Key" message box had probably come up and was dismissed without notice. The anwser is in "Accessibility". Go to "Accessibility" in the "Control Center" and select the Keyboard Filter tab. Disable the "Use slow keys" uncheck box and press the "Apply" button. "Use sticky keys" may also be uncheck to prevent future problems and system beeps. There are some other options that should be examined.

I hope this helps...good luck.

NOTE: Pressing harder on the keyboard won't make it type faster...

juts to add.. this keyboard problem occur only when you are in ordinary user. Coz when I log-in as root the keyboard works fine... what I did was I created a new user. so far the new user can use the keyboard properly.

I would rename the .kde subdirectory. And then begin to move slowly files, and reinit KDE every time. At the end you will find which is the configuration file that is causing troubles.

I did this once I got a problem similar to yours


fc4, fedora, keyboard, linux
