Seeing the same thing here on an XO-1 with the os15.img. Seems to be intermittent, with the keys working for a short time (except display brightness) and then stopping. Note that the volume keys, frame key, and Journal search key also stop working as well.

Confirmed XO1 OS15, brightness keys do not work. 4 view keys fault highly intermittent, only seen 3 times in hours of use.

Tested this problem on S 0.90.0 (on an X01.0 and an X0.1.5. It was determined that the loss of functionality associated with top row of keyboard could be consistently triggered by 'dragging' any icon. This included icons on the journal directory, usb directory or icons on activity circle. It didn't matter whether the icon was 'moved' to a new location or partially dragged and allowed to bounce back to original position. We also noted that upon trying to copy an item from usb to journal directory the image of the entire line (rather than just the icon) appears to be dragged.

Replying to Kubke:

Can you attach ~/.sugar/default/logs/shell.log after this has happened, please?
Have you tried more recent versions of Sugar (i.e. 0.90.3)?

(It's called XO, BTW - "Ex Oh", not "Ex Zero")

Yes, dragging a journal entry on os17 causes the problem. Nothing logged in shell.log.

We're having the same problem here. Please see https://dev.laptop.org.au/issues/281

To reproduce:

  1. boot into SoaS 4
  2. load the Journal
  3. plug in a USB storage device and wait for it to be mounted
  4. move to the USB storage view
  5. drag a file from the USB storage to the datastore
  6. F1, F2, or F3 to change views

What happens: nothing

What's expected: the views should change as you press the function keys.

Tracked at OLPC as #10643 (View keys and the Journal and Frame key stops working). Diagnosis so far: "The hardware keys are still working and they are transmitted to the software side (showkey tested). We have a grab key function in Sugar which is basically a GDK Window - the callbacks for the key-press events seem not to be called anymore after having used dragging in the Journal."

There is as well the case on the XO where the whole keyboard stops working (Suspend/Resume) which is tracked as #10650.
