Hello !

I am trying to login to both the original Fedora, and on the Ubuntu I installed, and it just doesn't work. When I type the username, I can see the characters are different than what I type.
All characters are preceded by "^]". So when I type root, at the login, I see
^]r^]o^]o^]t

This happens to the ubuntu I installed as well. However, installation was successful, I managed to write everything there was to write during setup. I created a user with the same keyboard.

Keyboards used:
Logitech K400 Plus (wireless)
Dell SK-8115 (professional keyboard)

Hi, Tim !

Yeah, turns out a different console did it. Thanks !
Now I'm focusing on making the wifi work. The rtl8192cu module is loaded, but I still cannot persuade it to connect to my WiFi :(
