IDE: One key press, two characters
« on: January 20, 2018, 08:05:20 pm »
Lazarus 1.8, Linux Mint 17.3
This issue suddenly appeared with no obvious cause. When using the IDE I get two characters when I press a key once. For example, If I type X the IDE displays XX. This makes writing source code impossible. Has anyone else experienced this? Perhaps some recently applied software update is contributing?

Thanks,
Dave
