Laptop Keyboad issue with Kiosk

Post#1 by bobabel06 » 23 Apr 2018, 18:10

I am trying to build a simple Kiosk with the Porteus Kiosk version 4.6.0 (have also tried 3.7.0) What I need to do is have this laptop boot to a single web page that a user has a Survey they can fill out. I have everything working BUT when the laptop top boots up the "right" side of keyboard on laptop is not working correctly for example if You press the "P" key a "-" is displayed or pressing the "O" key a "4" is displayed, whole right side of keyboard is not mapping correctly. But if I plug in a external USB keyboard and then Unplug the external Keyboard all keys on laptop work like they are supposed to??? untill I reboot the laptop then have to repeat plug and unplug USB to get keyboard working.... I have tried on a few different laptops that we have and all are doing the same thing. Not sure what setting I can change or configure to get this to work. any help would be appreciated.

Hi Bob,

1) I understand that you did not change default layout (en:US) in kiosk?

2) Please boot latest Ubuntu live CD and check if keyboard works ok under it.

If yes then please download and run this script:

Code: Select all

sudo bash
then send generated report to

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
