• Issue : Character ^@ is always pressed

    Hi everyone,
    I’m using Antergos with Openbox since 5 or 6 months and it was working well until now. It seems that a key is always pressed. Almost everything seems to work well but some programs are affected (i.e. Pinta is selects back lasso tool a second after I choose another tool). When I jump to tty, the characters ^@ are printed in screen continuously with a 1 second delay.
    I tried using another keyboard but the issue persist.
    I ran another distro (knoppix, I think) and everything worked ok.

    I wanted to ask you before reinstalling.
    Thank you in advance.

    PS: I open this topic in “Newbie Corner” because it did not fit in any other subforums. I hope it’s ok.

  • Do you have the proper keyboard layout selected? If you have a US keyboard and you have GB keyboard selected it may think that you’re pressing a key that’s not there. If you have a Mac you would have an entirely different keyboard layout even if you have an English US keyboard. Also, ^ means Ctrl key or Alt key. I wasn’t able to get any keyboard shortcut that types ^@. What is the lasso shortcut in your program?
