Hi all,

I amb having problems with left single quote key with OpenMSX

With OpenMSX I have noticed that when in my spanish keyboard I press the left single quote key plus another key that key keeps pressed.

Does any of you have had the same problem ?

Thanks a lot ! Smile

What do you mean by left single quote? Do you mean the quote to the right of the number 0, where the close question mark symbol is too?

So you mean the accent key? I've tried to reproduce the issue, but I can only do it with auto-repeat. I press the accent, then I press 'a' and hold it until it auto-repeats. Then, the 'y' key gets stuck.

Not sure why it's a problem for you, but the easiest solution is to open the console with F10 and enter: set kbd_mapping_mode positional to switch to positional mode. Now the accent is the right Ctrl key (with shift), and holding a key will no longer cause it to get stuck.

This is a very old bug that affects keyboard layouts that have dead keys. You can track it and report your case here.
