Linuxhelp _ Technical Support _ Alt Gr and Ctrl not working properly

Posted by: ZenRookieSenior Mar 20 2009, 06:45 AM


runing ZenWalk with FluxBox.

After having installed elinks in a session (using netpkg) I noticed my media-keys wouldnt launch the apps I had bound to them and on logging out I got some message about problems with X and that it would be disabled.

When restaring i got

init: Id "x" respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes


xstart from another tty gave

X: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I simply installed pixman using netpkg and then everything seemed fine at first. But my keyboard is acting up. Being in a console when using the "Alt Gr" key it will simply write (arg:333) when pressing the 3-key together with Alt Gr 3 times. Using Alt Gr with any key different from 0-9 has no effect.

Also ctrl doesnt work probably. The output from xev looks ok.

How do I get started solving this ?
