Unable to type the letter 'e' in Nautilus!

Asked by Robin Nixon on 2009-09-23

Binary package hint: nautilus

Starting today I am unable to use the lower case letter 'e' in nautilus. I can use it in all the other Ubuntu programs such as Firefox, and I can use upper case 'E' in Nautilus. I have to type the letter in other programs and then copy and paste it into Nautilus.

And yes, I have plugged in a different keyboard and it happens exactly the same!

you probably activated the option to change menu accelerators and typed on e while a menu was open, not a bug
