I am using ASUS VivoBook together with Fedora 29. Everything works except for a keyboard glitch. Pressing Tab increases volume, even though the entry for Volume up in Keyboard Shortcuts settings is Audio raise volume (fn key). The same happens with Ctrl+Tab and backtick.


After tracking it down it turned out to be hardware issue. Pressing Tab actually sent the code for Volume up, hence this can't be solved programmatically.

  • That's crazy. Hardware is ridiculous :) You may be able to remap it with xkb... there's a question around here somewhere on that in general – mattdm Apr 29 '19 at 14:27
