Bug Description

I recently decided to give the new luna beta 2 a test run and burned the iso to a usb and booted it on my laptops. On both of them the keyboard is basically unusable because when I type certain letters (seems to mostly happen to characters that are on the right side of the keyboard), it puts in a number instead of a letter. For example if I rememer correctly typing "u" put in a 6 instead.

I saw this on two totally different laptops, my system76 lemur ultra and my older asus u52f. they both have normal US keyboards (the asus has a numpad the system76 doesn't), so this bug seems like something that could effect many users, I tried searching launchpad and didn't find a report for it which suprised me (mabye there is one and I just didn't find it)

I don't have this problem with the beta 1 iso.
