So, I am having this problem with the control key. It seems to happen on occasion.

Currently I am trying to resolve my wireless connection to my router in Ubuntu Server 16.04. I sent a command ping www.google.com without the -c 4 option. It is attempting to ping google and coming back Destination host unreachable over and over and over again. I am trying to press Ctrl+C, but all it does is put a C on the screen and try the ping again.

I have tried both control keys and other things like ctrl + alt, or ctrl + x. nothing works.

Has anyone else had this issue?

  • To end the ping, type on another terminal killall ping. Sorry, I do not have a better answer by now – Aegefel Nov 6 '16 at 16:11
