Suddenly my laptop (with 16.04 LTS) cannot type parentheses ( and ). I have an Italian keyboard layout, and I've checked it is actually selected.
Strange thing is, the ability to type them seems to come and go randomly. I am puzzled.
What have I tried:
- checked my keyboard layout, it's the same
- checked this issue, seems much like my problem but on different keys. I've tried holding down the parentheses for some time and suddenly I can type them. After a while they stop again.
- checked with
xev, no output for
(press, then suddenly I have output.
On italian keyboard, they are typed using Shift+8 and Shift+9
