Last week after upgrades my keyboard stopped, but still works fine in Windows.

The 5 key though will bring up a context edit menu.

Anyone else have this since the last two sets of upgrades? Any solution or ideas?

Do you have any active PPA that might affect normal updates? (ie Ubuntu-X team or xorg edgers, etc) – Bruno Pereira Feb 5 '12 at 21:59
No... and it was working fine until a couple of days ago. I attributed it, perhaps wrongly, to the latest updates. I am running 10.10. – Donna Feb 5 '12 at 22:01
