[Bug 382924] Re: atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed


marco.pallotta, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder, but the one at the top) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This is related to bug #111024 (and many other similar bugs).

  The messages in the summary appear in my acer laptop when pressing keys that doesn't run and are not assignable through keyboard shortcuts utility. I think a solution to this could be displaying a gui to the user every time this message appears in the log files to help the user to customize keys that don't run out-of-the-box. It could be a great usability option to make Ubuntu more user-friendy.
