I have a interesting Option Key problem but I couldn't find any solution.

I am using iMac 21,5" and running Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.

My keyboard is apple wired aluminum extended keyboard and my layout is "Turkish QWERTY PC". My problem is both Options key work as Command key and , I cant type special characters.

I opened Key Viewer and when i press option key it shows as Command Key.

Note : I have a logitech g500 mouse

Note2 : I tried 3 diffrent keyboard ( Microsoft, logitech and apple ) result is same.

Note3 : system prefs/keyboard/keyboard/modifier buttons are default , and when i changed control button to option button and press the control button its type command button again.

Is there any solution to fix this?

Thanks a lot.

  • Do you have Logitech Gaming Software installed? If so, it can do some pretty weird things, try quitting it (and maybe rebooting).

Do you have the Logitech Control Center (LCC) software installed?

if so uninstall it and see what happens.

(I had a few issues when I had it installed with crashing and strange things happening to my keyboard (I only had a Logitech Mouse) which at the time all the knowledge on the interwebs told me was down to LCC being a pile of horse puckey.)


Try running the Keyboard Setup Assistant again

Open a terminal window and enter the following:

sudo open /System/Library/CoreServices/KeyboardSetupAssistant.app/Contents/MacOS/KeyboardSetupAssistant
