Keyboard annoyance

#1

I have updated successfully to 18.12-U8. U8 continues with an annoyance that first began on TrueOS-18.03 and continued through all Trident versions. After booting, at the Lumina login screen, the system ignores the first key press. From that point forward the keyboard works flawlessly. My work-around has been to tap the shift key before typing my login password. My hardware is a Zareason Alto laptop which has had its keyboard replaced. Certainly not an earth shaking problem. Is this normal? Suggestions? Thanks. Richard.

There is a blinking cursor. Tapping the shift key changes nothing that I can see. I’ve tried to move the pointer to the cursor and click it but that does not cause the system to recognize the first key press. If I forget to tap the shift key, repeating the first character of the password works. Thanks for the reply. Richard
