Well, my arrows (up, left, down) and my supr(or del) key are not working.. I tried with sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration with a few different keybords, and changing System Settings about the keyboard but nothing happens. I keep getting this image with and X every time I use these keys(in chrome, firefox, terminal, etc). The arrows are working well with "Fn". And they were working yesterday as arrows.

What's the result of pressing QWERTY in your keyboard? –  Braiam Sep 5 '13 at 0:02
Can you post a screenshot of the image? (You can post it somewhere online like imgur.com or postimage.org and add a link in your question, if you're unable to include it in your question directly.) Right now it would be hard to answer this and it might be closed as unclear, but even after it's closed, if you edit it, that will get it reconsidered for reopening. –  Eliah Kagan Sep 5 '13 at 19:52
