Bad keyboard mapping for some keyboard localizations
« on: October 29, 2020, 06:50:19 am »
Hi there. Nice to meet you, this is my first post.

I got a Cosmo with an Italian keyboard. I installed Linux and followed instructions on PS site to configure the keyboard. But, setting "Planet | Planet Computers Cosmo Communicator" as keyboard model and Italian as language, cause the "b" and "n" key to not work at all.

After some tries, I think that something is messed up with the "brightnessDown" and "brightnessUp" features (that doesn't work on Linux) that, at least in my layout, are sticked with the b and n keys. But b and n keys doesn't work even using the Alt or Fn keys.

If I change keyboard model OR language, b and n works without a problem, but then the layout is messed up.

The weird thing is that if I check what happens using xev, I see this for a working key (let's say "v"):

Code: [Select]
KeyPress event, serial 40, ...

KeyRelease event, serial 40, ...

but if I press "b":

Code: [Select]
FocusOut event, serial 40, ...

FocusIn event, serial 40, ...

KeymapNotify event, serial 40, ...

KeyRelease event, serial 40, ...

Do this means something?

There's only another keys binding that shows those messages: Fn + ESC.

Could you please give me some advice? I really don't know how to start. Thank you.
