Keyboard got crazy


As soon as the graphical screen starts, the keyboard keeps repeating the letter : I type 'ab' and it displays 'aaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbb'. Impossible to master the thing.

(the hardware keyborad debian correspond to the right one during linux installation )

I suspect there's a hardware incompatibility somewhere, but what ?

Could this be a problem with the autorepeat setting?

keyboard randomly repeating

I had a similar problem & cured it by removing the plptools package :- sudo dpkg -r plptools.
(ubuntu dapper on amd64).
