using the `xev` program on both my media center machine (laptop running mythbuntu 11.04) and my ordinary machine (desktop running vanilla ubuntu 11.10), I can see that: On the laptop only, sometimes pressing a button normally will cause repeated events to be sent until the next button is pressed (after which *that* button may be stuck on indefinitely). At other times it's fine, but it often seems to get stuck in this mode - i.e once a keypress starts repeating, future key presses probably will too. With the same flirc, remote & config, running on my desktop, I have not been able to get this to happen. So I'm presuming it's something in the linux even stack somewhere? I'm not too sure where to look to figure out where the problem is. Is there some way to get flirc to dump logs of what events it thinks it's generating, to see if the bug is with flirc or linux? I noticed a mention here ( http://blog.flirc.tv/?page_id=46 ) of "inter-key delay time to help fix when rapidly pressing causes `stuck key`". "Stuck key" seems to be my problem, but it's unrelated to how fast I press keys (a single press can trigger it). I also couldn't see how to configure or find out more about this delay setting - is it exposed from the command line tool? If it's useful, my laptop is: $ uname -a Linux tjcee 2.6.38-12-generic #51-Ubuntu SMP Wed Sep 28 14:25:20 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux And my desktop: $ uname -a Linux meep 3.0.0-13-generic #22-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 2 13:27:26 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
