I was following this guide to help me fix an issue where my late 2016 razer blade stealth would crash on me whenever I toggle the cap locks key but it didn't work. I did the command where it installed a bunch of these stuff

sudo apt install python3-razer razer-kernel-modules-dkms razer-daemon razer-doc

and when I tried looking up this

lsmod | grep "razerkbd"

it couldn't find it. Now whenever i restart my laptop, chrome takes a good minute to open up and some stuff even lags, like when I try opening the terminal or right clicking. I want to uninstall all those razer stuff I installed and restore my computer to how it was previously before those razer installs. I am new to Ubuntu and Linux and this is the first time I have ever installed another OS on a computer, sorry for my inexperience.


To uninstall, you should be able to:

Note: if these steps produce any errors, stop and do not continue.

In terminal...

xinput set-prop "AT Raw Set 2 keyboard" "Device Enabled" 1

Try your regular keyboard. If it doesn't work, stop.

sudo rm -i /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-razer.conf

sudo apt-get purge python3-razer razer-kernel-modules-dkms razer-daemon razer-doc
  • I did what you told me to do but my computer is still acting up. Chrome is taking about 5 minutes to boot up and when it does, the rest of the computer acts up. I tried opening my terminal and it wouldn't and then 4 opened at the time. Any ideas? I am thinking the drivers arent uninstalled and I need to install the previous drivers. – anonuser1234 Aug 20 '17 at 20:02
  • @anonuser1234 Did you reboot the computer? Does the problem you describe happen if you log into the guest or other accounts? – heynnema Aug 20 '17 at 20:05
  • I rebooted it, and I'm logging into my own personal account – anonuser1234 Aug 20 '17 at 20:09
  • I needed to know if the problem with Chrome happens in another account than your own. – heynnema Aug 20 '17 at 20:10
  • the guest account works fine. So it's user session problem? – anonuser1234 Aug 20 '17 at 20:17

So I am still not sure what caused the issue but after researching a bit more, I found this

Terminal appears with much delay when shortcut is used

and did what he said

Open Startup Application and add new

  1. Add new
  2. Name : terserah
  3. Command : killall gnome-keyring-daemon
  4. Comment : terserah

And everything works as is.

Except for my cap locks crashing my computer...

  • That's not the right fix, and it will cause problems later. – heynnema Aug 20 '17 at 20:50
  • @heynnema what problems will it cause? – anonuser1234 Aug 20 '17 at 20:56
  • I would expect password or SSH problems. – heynnema Aug 20 '17 at 21:01
