Key presses not detected


After the display manager, my key presses are randomly not detected or the keyboard entirely doesn’t work. While this happens, right clicks in GTK contexts also don’t work. It happens with both of the DEs I tried. It also affects QT programs.

I don’t have this problem prior to the DE starting or with Windows. I didn’t have it with Linux Mint either. My keyboard is a general HID device, it doesn’t require any special driver.

It’s also fine with showkey and tty. (I tried all the keys)
