Subject description: UpArrow=PRTSC PGDN=CTRL - And Many Others
 

I have a frugal install of this version.

I have been having various problems
with it, since I am told about the
"wrong desktop" came with it or something.

I just realized that the arrow keys have
never worked. The "UP-ARROW" is mapped
to be [PRTSC], the [PGDN] is mapped to be
[CTRL], and so on. I have no [HOME] key, no
[END] key, INS, DEL, and the like.

Basically I have no arrow keys. I experimented
by booting this from scratch without any save
file, thinking that I must have configured this
by mistake. I was disappointed. Even in "safe"
mode the keyboard has this issue.

The "clean" safe mode boot has the cockeyed
keyboard map. The kernal is booting from the
pfix=fsck, pfix=ram. No save file, with a new
pristine boot from the sda1/LxPupSc19.09frugal
folder.

What am I doing wrong. How can I get the arrow
keys to work?

Thanks in advance.

Please check /etc/system_build_date

LxPupSc32 System built on: Sun Dec 1 07:36:08 GMT 2019

Please install the latest version - 19.09+7 - pristine frugal install - no savefile or savefolder

My version is from 08 November, 2019 version 19.09+6!

Thanks so very much. I downloaded
LxPupSc64-19.09+0-uefi-T.iso___LxPupSc64-19.09+7-uefi-T.iso.delta,
successfully. This iso file seems to be some sort of update utility. My
computer is quite old with an i5 processor and cannot run this update.
Screenshot below.

I downloaded the LxPupSc64-19.09+7-uefi-T.iso from
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpup/files/Other/LxPupSc64/.

I created a new frugal folder. I am posting this now and will
reboot with the new OS and update this message with my
results.

====================================
UPDATE

The system booted, and when the splash screen loaded, I hit
the [PRTSC] key right off the bat, both to take a screen shot and
also to check if it was mapped correctly. The screen capture
utility loaded (TakeAShot) and I captured the screen.

When the "Quick Setup" dialog appeared, I took another
screen shot. After confirming the settings [OK], the [PRTSC] key
was now mismapped.

I set the timezone and synchronized the system clock. The
first thing I did was to load Geany and check for the keyboard
mapping. Now the keyboard is cockeyed again. Something happened
between the time it first booted and when the clock screen appeared.

It happens after confirming the 'Quick Setup' dialog box.

I made a simple map of some of the keys that are mapped out
cockeyed:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
UPARROW = [PRTSC]
RTARROW, LTARROW, DNARROW = ?
[LTWIN] = ?
[RTWIN] = PERIOD
[PERIOD] = PERIOD
[RTALT] = RTN
[LTALT] = ALT
[LTCTRL] = CTRL
[RTCTRL] = PGDN
[PGUP] = /
[PGDN] = RT MOUSE CLICK
[HOME] = ?
[END] = ?
[INS] = ?
[DEL] = ?
[PRTSC] = DEL
/ on keypad = INS

Keypad without Numlk functions
as home/end/pgup/pgdn/arrows.
[SHIFT]+KEYPAD KEYS = NUMLOCK KEYS (without numlock)
[SHIFT]+KEYPAD KEYS = home/end/pgup/pgdn/arrows (with numlock)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Peasy scale is not working, cannot reduce any screen shots.


Side note - when I experimented with version 18.06 all the keys
on the keyboard work as intended.

Something wrong with my computer generated this output.
I eventually downloaded the iso itself.
This output was from the "delta" file.

Try editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf
line #42
to read:
Option "AutoAddDevices" "false"
then restart window manager

Thanks - please report result
