    Can't use keyboard sometimes in kde applications


    On kubuntu (with installed scim), I sometimes can't enter any text or use any other keys except alt+f4 to close the window of a KDE application (happened with various apps). In the bash I got the following information:

    Code:

    odd... maybe your keyboard isn't well supported in kubuntu. not sure why though...
    what keyboard are you using? if it is MS then it would offer some explanation
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    No idea why, on Debian it had worked perfectly well.
    The keyboard's in a dell notebook (inspiron 8600), swiss layout.

    i heard ubuntu has poor hardware support (not sure) which could be the cause. maybe the swiss layout is confusing it
