Having some keyboard issues

    For some reason I can't get CTRL to work. So no CTRL+C or CTRL+D. The keyboard itself works fine with other operating systems. I also have no issues in MorphOS with any of the "regular" keys.

    There is 2 US keyboards in the settings and I tried them both. Anybody else having this issue or know of a workaround/fix?

    Thanks!

    Can you reset/reboot your system using Control+LeftCommand+RightCommand?

    Just to know if the Control key is recognised at all that way.

    OK, so are you sure it works correctly as Copy (C) &/or Paste (V) functions on Windows?

    What make is the keyboard, and is it USB or Bluetooth? USB keyboards are usually quite cheap anyway, so it might be worth acquiring another one even if it's a used one, just to make sure it works OK at low cost.

    I have to say that of the few keyboards that I have used that are USB they all worked OK, though I usually use Apple A1016 Bluetooth keyboard(s) (via Mac OSX Dual Boot Bluetooth Pairing) and wired Apple A1048 keyboard(s), as they are quite cheap and can be taken apart and fixed if need be, so I can recommend them as they are quite robust.

    It's a Corsair STRAFE USB Keyboard. And yes I am sure that it works in Windows and Linux. I am using this keyboard for my PC and my Raspberry PIs. It's a weird thing. I will keep digging into it. I could obviously use a different keyboard but my desk is already littered with Amigas and other stuff :-D

    You could try to go into the USB settings of the keyboard an see if the keys are recognized there.
