After I run
mplayer, the cursor keys on my keyboard get swapped with random keys on my keyboard...
Up = Print Left = ISO_Level3_Shift Right = Windows key Down = Nothing
Restarting seems to fix the problem. The only sort-of work around I have is to turn off KHotkey daemon (which stops KSnapshot starting every time I press
up). Changing the keyboard layout from one to another doesn't do anything, and also changing the keyboard model seems to have no effect. All other keys seem to work fine. I've never seen anything like this before.
What could I try?
Ah, actually it's not be mplayer. It's prooving to be very difficult to figure out exactly what is causing this to happen. It's fine when I first log in, but at some point the key swap occurs.
