I have a very strange problem: When I hold down a key, it gets repeated for a random amount of time, then stops. For example, below is my attempts holding down some keys:
aaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa a b bbbbbbbbbbb b ccccccccccc cccccccccccccc ccccc
On Windows on the same machine, the keyboard works fine. It also works on Ubuntu on another PC.
The problem is especially frustrating with the backspace key. I have to mash the key repeatedly to delete a few characters.
Things I tried so far:
- Restart computer
- Update and upgrade all packages
- Turn Repeat keys off and on
- Adjust Repeat keys' Delay and Speed
- Turn Bounce Keys on and off
- Upgrade kernel
- Change USB port
- Googling (a lot)
