I am running EOS 5.1 in VirtualBox (also has it on a Laptop but I usually use VirtualBox to test upgrades before applying to Laptop).

See Keyboard -> Shortcuts have valid values before update:

enter image description here

I checked App Center there was a Keyboard 2.3.6 update. I clicked Update.

Immediately afterwards, Keyboard -> Shortcuts are completely Disabled. No way to re-enable them!

Is this happening only to VirtualBox VM?

If this happens to bare metal it would be a very serious problem.

  • This bug is still affecting me on elementary OS 5.1.7 Hera on October 27th, 2020.
