Re: IBM Thinkpad 770 - Mouse "goes crazy" in X (fixed!) but now Keyboard is acting weird!

Thanks for the suggestions guys, my mouse now works properly after I got rid of gpm. However, when I enter Gnome now and start Gnome Terminal, some of my keys on the Thinkpad are not mapped correctly. For example, when I press the "/" key, I get a "-" (which was almost disastrous as I was trying to search something in dselect and ended up almost uninstalling some random apps) and when I press "&" I get "/" and other weirdness. It's probably a keyboard setting file or something right? Can you point me to the right direction? It works fine in the regular console (non-X) of course...

Still learning...

if you are running gpm, have you tried disabling it before starting X?
