The DISPLAY checks were not yet in place in 16.04 console-setup so the bug probably happens a lot more frequently on it... would be nice if they could be backported since it still has long period of support left and this is extremely annoying. I'm starting to think there is some other cause too because it seems to be much too common, why would console-setup's packaging scripts be ran all the time since the package itself updates hardly ever. Or does some trigger force that?
Note to everyone who suffers from it that this can be temporarily fixed by running "sudo kbd_mode -s", which should be much less disruptive way of solving it for a time than rebooting. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to console-setup in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/520546 Title: Alt-f2 switches to virtual terminal 2 Status in console-cyrillic package in Ubuntu: Invalid Status in console-setup package in Ubuntu: Confirmed Bug description: I'm running Ubuntu Lucid development branch. Pressing alt-f2 switches the screen to the second virtual terminal. Alt-f3 does the same to the third and so on. I expected alt-f2 to open the run dialog. I'm pretty sure that my keyboard is not malfunctioning as I can use all my applications normally. (Pressing O and Ctrl-O do not have the same effect.) I'm not sure which package I should file this bug against. I'll happily do an apport-collect once I know.
