a few days ago, something got confused in my Notebook after I woke it up from sleep. The notebook’s original keyboard unfortunately is not assembled to the screen but has a “cable mode” and “bluetooth mode” (and I think, I switched it before turning the keyboard back on). Everything is fine, when I connect it with cable mode, all keyboard settings work as before. But when I use bluetooth mode, the keyboard behaves strange, which wasn’t like this before.
I noticed changes that the Meta-Key (left “Windows”) and ALT key are swapped and the scroll direction is also inverted. I didn’t notice any other changes.
I don’t know, if this issue is related to KDE settings, some Linux driver or if this could be a firmware issue inside the hardware itself. At least, I didn’t change anything and originally, bluetooth behaved the same as with cable connection.
I tried using the advanced keyboard settings in the KDE settings application but these settings affect the received keyboard input in general. Swapping ALT with (Left) Win will do it for both bluetooth and cable connection.
In Bluetooth mode, when using
sudo showkey in the console, the Left Win generates the key code for Left ALT and the Left ALT produces the keycode for Left Win.
Please tell me, if there is a better place to ask. I am using Garuda Linux Dra60nized (uses KDE Plasma).
