Correction: The cause for the key failure was not any sort of software but a crumb under the key!
During the last days I used JOSM for the first time. So far it seems to work fine.
However, I detected that the shortcuts for copy & paste (Strg-c and Strg-v) do not work anymore on my computer - even after switching off the computer and switching it on hours later. Instead of copying a ‘c’ appears and instead of pasting a ‘v’ appears on the screen.
As operating system I use OpenSUSE Linux 10.3 with KDE 3.5.7. Can anybody help with a hint?
I have now discovered that only the left Strg key is affected by the problem described above. This is bad, though.
the cause for not working of the left Strg key was a much simpler one than JRE or JOSM: There was a crumb under the key which I didn’t notice. This is the first experience of such a key failure, because I carefully keep all food away from my keyboard.
Thank you for your thinking, though. I’m sorry for annoying you with this at the end very simple problem.
I know that my operating system is rather outdated. But I don’t have a second - perhaps old or different type of - computer as a replacement, if a new installed operating system doesn’t work for any reason. I like OpenSUSE, but the support for updates is rather short. Honestly, I downloaded the new Java version today and tried to install it several times in different manners (without and with YAST), but it obviously failed. The output of “java -version” is the same as before.
