The Fedora is installed on a laptop with a ABNT2, the specific type of the keyboard is “Portuguese (Brazil, IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad”.
During my Fedora installation setup, I selected language “English”. When selecting the keyboard model, I added the above Brazilian type, but I also added an “English (US, intl., with dead keys)”, because I knew I was going to use the fedora with a wireless keyboard.
My keyboard model is MX Keys Logi, btw. I tried with other keyboards and the problem persists.
I recently discovered that a co-worker, who also installed the very same Fedora at a machine identical to mine, doesn’t have the same problem, @vwbusguy . The difference is that he installed the Fedora with only the Brazilian keyboard. When he decided to use his external keyboard, after Fedora was already installed and updated with the latest upgrades, he added an English US international layout. So, maybe that’s the cause of all of this, and it would explain as well why you couldn’t reproduce it.
So, after hearing my co-worker’s story, I decided to check the laptop keyboard right control key, using obviously the correct layout, the Brazilian one. To my dismay, I discovered that the right control key also types a ‘/’ instead of working as a control key. So, it appears that somehow the bug is in the Brazilian keyboard, and somehow it is affecting the other layout (would that even be possible?). I’m not sure why, or how to fix it.
Regarding input methods, I only have the two keyboards config I just talked about. And this is necessary because the built-in keyboard in the laptop is different from my external keyboard. Btw, I use Quick Lang Switch gnome extension to switch between them, not sure if this affects anything. If you also have multiple keyboards, @lilywhite, maybe the problem you mention is similar to mine?
As for the English variants, I was referring to the ones compatible with my US international keyboard, so there are other types, such as the non-international, without dead keys, etc, that also are compatible with my keyboard.
