    Xev does not recognize down key


    I accidentally unbound my downkey. Now my system wont recognize it.

    Xev prints out KeymapNotify event, synthetic NO, window 0x0 keys 2 0 0 0 0 0 ....

    showkey -a dumps nothing when i press down.

    showkey -s print 0xe0 0x50 0xe0 0xd0

    and regular showkey prints keycode 108 press and release

    I know xev would tell me down's keycode is 116.

    What I am to do with this information I dont know but this is possible to fix I swear.

    Also when I run dumpkeys "keycode 108 = Down" and thats it.
    while next says

    keycode 109 = Next
    shift keycode 109 = Scroll_Forward

    et cetera

    Fixed

    Yeah so the problem is LXDE (my desktop environment) had a keyboard shortcut for down bound to nothing. Deleted it and all was fixed.
