Fedora 25 doesn't recognizer super key

asked 2017-07-26 15:22:24 -0500

Hi, I just changed my keyboard to a Cooler master Masterkeys and it doesn't recognize the super key.

FYI I opened the Region and Language setting and opened the window which shows the keyboard layout. It highlights all keys when I click on them expect the Super Key.

I guess this keyboard has a different code for the super key. Any help on how to configure it?

This keyboard has a "Win Lock" feature that disables the super key. To turn off "Win Lock", press Fn + F9.

For more info, see the Masterkeys Pro Manual (PDF) and "Extra Keyboard Keys" on ArchWiki.

Bizarre. I wonder what the reasoning behind that was. Perhaps someone thought people using Linux, BSD etc. wouldn't want to use a key with a Microsoft logo on it haha. (Maybe true tho.)
