Keyboard 'locked' after moving a file from Desktop
Incomplete, NormalPublic


When I drag a folder from my desktop into an another for example, it is not working.
After doing so, pressing the space bar is not working, it is only working if i’m doing alt gr + space bar or alt gr + return for example.

To get the keyboard working normally I need to restart PureOS.

Does this mean you enabled icons on desktop in GNOME Shell? Where did exactly move directory (folder)? Does this mean that keyboard typing of text (for example in gedit) is not working properly?

The issue disappeared after a system update but it comes back few days ago now.

for example, an image is saved on the desktop location, then I want to move it to a specific folder while the 'folder window' is open.
When dragging the image using the trackpad to the folder it is not working and then I have the same issue as explained above...

Is this still an issue with current amber or byzantium branches of PureOS?
