Re: Why downkey is not working in CentOS?

This can be a problem with the keyboard if I am not wrong. Like in Microsoft Word or in Notepad the downkey only works when you hit enter a number of time. Or else it will stuck at the end of sentence. The reason is that there is no space below. If this is not the issue then, the problem lies with the keyboard mapping something in CenOS. I found a thread which has discussion on Keyboard in CentOS.

Why CentOS is reading one key press as held down key press?

I have checked the keyboard with other computers but it is perfect. Is this a feature of CentOS?
