After restarting elementary many keystrokes return the wrong value, consistently across all keyboard layouts. I tried French, German, Japanese Layouts. Its also not due to my physical keyboard, which works fine when I boot into windows7.

  • 'backspace' returns ']'
  • 'apostrophe' ' returns 'backspace'
  • '[' open brackets returns colon ':'

The onboard keyboard also seems to suggest that there are additional keys on my keyboard near enter and left shift for ESC and less than < . Is there a file I can edit or a way to reset all key assigments?

  • I ended up fixing the issue by reseting the entire system. Nothing else proved useful.
