I'm using a Mac Bluetooth keyboard (model A1314) in my Ubuntu Budgie 20.04.3, and it is fine except for the Esc key. Sometimes it works properly, others it doesn't work and others I need to press 3-5 times the key to have a response.

As you can imagine, it is very frustrating because when it doesn't work I need to press the inbuilt Esc key of my laptop, breaking my programming flux.

Today It was not working but recently it started to work intermittent, so I take advantage of it to run the xev command and got this result:

Mac keyboard:

KeyPress event, serial 48, synthetic NO, window 0x5c00001, root 0x257, subw 0x0, time 20707755, (78,100), root:(2048,180), state 0x2000, keycode 9 (keysym 0xff1b, Escape), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (1b) " mbLookupString gives 1 bytes: (1b) " FilterEvent returns: False

Internal keyboard:

KeyRelease event, serial 49, synthetic NO, window 0x5c00001, root 0x257, subw 0x0, time 20707861, (78,100), root:(2048,180), state 0x2000, keycode 9 (keysym 0xff1b, Escape), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (1b) " FilterEvent returns: False

It tried it also in my Android and the behavior was the same. In my windows partition it didn't work, but I think that in other moment it could work like in Ubuntu and Android.

I discard a hardware damage because all the other keys work perfectly, and it doesn't show any signal of damage.

What could be the problem? Thanks a lot!!!

  • When you say "Mac Bluetooth Keyboard", do you mean the Magic Keyboard? If you do, you might want to edit the question so that that is more obvious Apr 13 at 22:07
