Did anyone else's Control and Fn keys switch position?

Because mine did. I don't even know where to report this as a bug, and I don't wanna remap all the Fn functions.

Just stating the obvious, did you update something or change software?

Re: Did anyone else's Control and Fn keys switch position?

Thee were upgrades to systemd and gnome shell. The keys have switched places even on the gettys. I'm not sure if it's a kernel thing, or part of Debian's keyboard setup black magic. I've masked keyboard-setup, changed the configuration with dpkg, but no dice. It was working before the last set of updates and a reboot, so one of the packages must have changed something. The firmware doesn't have the option to switch the keys, so I'm pretty sure it's not that.

Use find to list all files changed since the last upgrades.

This is a hardware issue, not a Debian one. Good thing I didn't open a bug.

The "solution" is to take out the battery and put it back   hmm
