gestur Posted August 11, 2013 Share Posted August 11, 2013 I recently bought a K65 keyboard and I'm having an issue on Ubuntu Linux. I believe my problem is very similiar to (or even identical to) this one: http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=119654 I.e. the backslash key (just left of the Enter key) repeats if preceded by another keypress while "typing normally". Since I'm using a Nordic keyboard I'm getting duplicate single quote characters, but the root cause seems to be the key itself since I'm getting duplicate backslashes if I change to English/US keyboard layout. This appears to be a problem only with this specific key. On Windows 8 the keyboard appears to work perfectly, including the LEDs, which don't work on Linux unless I switch to BIOS mode - but then the scroll lock LED keeps blinking which I find somewhat annoying. The issue shows up on my 64 bit Ubuntu 13.04 installation on my desktop computer as well as the 32 bit Ubuntu installation on my laptop when I plug in the keyboard, so I don't think the exact hardware configuration is very important. I'm aware Linux isn't officially supported, but perhaps there is a workaround for this (apart from setting the keyboard switch to BIOS mode)? Apart from this issue I'm very pleased with the keyboard. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
