I just updated this morning, and since the update, my keyboard stops working after a few minutes. Its a logitech G15, it stays lit up but the keys stop registering anything. If I unplug it and plug it back in, i get a few more minutes, and then it cuts off again. Mouse doesn't scroll properly. Can anyone help me figure out whats going on?

lsusb still shows it connected UPDATE: I reverted to last Kernel version and the problem persists. Thanks,

Got the same issue with G15 keyboard, I downgraded the following packages that I believed could be the source of the issue:

libebitdo, libdfu, fwupd, storaged, libstoraged, libinput

run: #sudo dnf downgrade libebitdo libdfu fwupd storaged libstoraged libinput

After reboot It is working it should, so one of those packages induced a bug... need to re-update 1 by 1 to see which is

Edit: After testing individual updates, the bug is caused by fwupd/libdfu that replace libebitdo, as temporary fix you need to downgrade those packages

sudo dnf downgrade fwupd libdfu

I have the same problem since the same update with the same keyboard.

Symptoms are quite the same : No problem to log in, the keyboard is active but a few seconds after the session is started it stops working. Unplug and re-plug make it works again without any issue after (even after standby) until next reboot.

I also noticed weird behavior of scroll lock, num lock and caps lock leds : When the keyboard stops working, numlock is automatically switched off and scroll lock is switched on. After unplug/re-plug everything works fine but the leds will stay switched off even if numlock/capslock/scrolllock keys are pressed (however, key presses are correctly taken into account)

I would also be interested in some help to investigate on this problem

Thanks in advance
