Recommendations for a window manager?

Mate-Compiz forever!

Compton with Mate seeems to be rather unusual combination.

However, Marco is not that laggy here. I’m not a big gamer, and under normal circumstances some screen tearing is noticed only when a window is moved or resized very fastly.

"USB Rubber Ducky" only writing lowercase

OK. Sorry but I have no ideas for now, but as you said it works on TTY then it sounds like some kind of X setting related problem. I’ll try to dig something more.

EDIT: maybe an X configuration file could help?

EDIT2: found this article:
and from it there’s a link to

Maybe evtest package could help you find the key codes the rubber kb is sending?

If these don’t help, then sorry, I’m out of ideas…

Issues related to the Openbox window manager.
no keyboard in openbox

What I found is that one wireless mouse I have somehow causes the keyboard to not work when I log into the Openbox session. The same mouse causes the same problem in Openbox in Debian Stretch (on a different computer). I can actually plug in a different mouse, log out of Openbox, log back into Openbox, and then the keyboard works fine. Also, once I’ve logged back in with the second mouse, I can switch back to the first mouse and the keyboard works for the rest of that session. Thanks to all who tried to help.

In a new (ISO 2017-12) Xfce installation it is correctly bound to Thunar-folder-handler.desktop.
