Unknown Key Pressed… error February 10, 2006Posted by Carthik in bugsquashing, ubuntu.
When I do a
$dmesg, which, by the way shows me the log of system messages and errors and such, I get the following two lines, repeated over and over, ad inifinitum:
[4314715.415000] atkbd.c: Unknown key pressed (translated set 2, code 0xaa on isa0060/serio0).
[4314715.415000] atkbd.c: Use ‘setkeycodes e02a <keycode>’ to make it known.
The most unobstrusive way to work around the problem might be to edit the
/usr/share/hotkey-setup/generic.hk file and commenting out, or deleting the offending line that says:
setkeycodes e02a 256
and then restarting the hotkey-setup service by doing a:
$sudo /etc/init.d/hotkey-setup restart
