I have an obscure problem with a Logitech K810 Bluetooth Keyboard. Everything works perfectly with the exception of the left shift key, it acts as though I have it pressed down for about two seconds longer than I really do. Right shift key works properly, but the left one runs a little slow. I checked the keyboard out and it doesn't appear to be getting physically stuck. I know it's a small problem but it can be annoying when you type at 120wpm! Perhaps it is simply a glitch that can be solved by mapping the key to appear as the right shift key? I have no idea which is why I'm posing the question to you guys. Anyone else has a similar issue?

Running Ubuntu 13.04 desktop 64-bit

Turns out this is just how the keyboard works. Tried it with the PS3, same thing. Would try it with Windows, but yuck, not going to install Windows to test a theory. – ryanlee Jan 6 '14 at 3:28
I have a Logitech K810 and the left shift key does not act abnormally. You should consider returning the keyboard for replacement. – jdthood May 1 '14 at 19:17
