Hi,

i have a Filco Majestouch Keyboard without the Keypad/Numpad Part and an additional Filco Keypad. I have a strange issue and i'm lost now.

The problem is, that both are working fine without X in the console. Under X the keypad is also working fine until i press NumLock to activate the Numbers instead of the KP_HOME etc. And also pressing "=" results in a "6" and activates NumLock.
I narrowed the problem down to the following fact. If i press NumLock the LED goes one and as soon as i press "7" for example i get in xev the KeyPress and KeyRelease for the "7" but also the keycode and KeyPress for Numlock (although it's already on). With that, the keypad doesn't do anything, no event in xev and so on. As soon as i enter "numlockx off" i can start again.

So what i want to achieve is the same behaviour as without X. I'm not sure if the Device is sending wrong keycodes, but that wouldn't explain it working without X.

For Reference the xev output:
Code:

As you can see, "KP_Home" was correct, activating "Num_Lock" also and even "KP_7" was correct. But the unwanted last "Num_Lock" messed it up.

And xinput list (it's detected as Cypress):
Code:

⎡ Virtual core pointer                       id=2   [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer                 id=4   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ ROCCAT ROCCAT Kone XTD                     id=13   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎜   ↳ Cypress Cypress USB Keyboard / PS2 Mouse   id=9   [slave  pointer  (2)]
⎣ Virtual core keyboard                      id=3   [master keyboard (2)]
    ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard                id=5   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=6   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Power Button                               id=7   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ USB Keyboard                               id=10   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ USB Keyboard                               id=11   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ ROCCAT ROCCAT Kone XTD                     id=14   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ UVC Camera (046d:0825)                     id=12   [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ Cypress Cypress USB Keyboard / PS2 Mouse   id=8   [slave  keyboard (3)]


Does anyone have an idea how to fix it or to narrow it down?
Thanks.

Is there at least some way to bind the keys from this specific device in another way?

Only hints I can suggest is to explore the InputDevice section options for xorg.conf. Sorry if you knew this already.

Did you find a way to fix this? I'm struggling because I can also use the keypad w/o X but when running Gnome it blows up as it does for you :|
