When I'm running on battery, I prefer to use the TTYs instead of the full blown GUI as I can squeeze a lot more run time out this way.
However, when I want to type in curly braces (AltGr-Shift-è and AltGr-Shift-+ on my Italian keyboard) the TTY (and only that TTY) acts as if I was holding my Alt key.
I also get this problem for any AltGr-Shift key combination -- the curly braces are just the most commonly used for me.
Why is that? How can I prevent it?
Here's my output for
