After I updated yesterday, and just turned my laptop off, when I went to login today I kept getting a login error. Then I noticed when I hit the spacebar (which is in my password), the whole line is deleted, leaving me with a blank box.
I was able to go to one of the other terminals (ctrl-alt-f4) and login just fine. I changed my password to one without spaces and can login. Once in gnome the space bar works as one would expect.
I tried logging out and rebooting, but the error remains consistent.
This is the env which is showing, which looks right:
$ systemctl show-environment LANG=en\_US.UTF-8 LC\_COLLATE=en\_US.UTF-8 PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
There also doesn’t seem to be any problems here either as far as I can tell, but I’m not expert:
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf \# Read and parsed by systemd-localed. It's probably wise not to edit this file \# manually too freely. Section "InputClass" Identifier "system-keyboard" MatchIsKeyboard "on" Option "XkbLayout" "us" EndSection
This error occurs when I am using a usb keyboard or the laptop keyboard. help?
