I also am reporting that my Chromium sessions do not accept ALPHANUMERIC keyboard entries.... which is to say, the "Win" key and the PF (function) keys work, but not the alphas, numerics, or punctuations.

I have reported this in Google's forum also as

Hope this helps. Also, it has begun in the past 48 hours; my system has recieved two updates in that time.

Chromium version: 39.0.2171.71 (64-bit)

If you will send me instructions to provide a more full profile of my Linux box I'll be happy to oblige. //jmb

Sziráki (and anyone else affected),

We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to review all reported bugs in a timely manner. You reported this bug some time ago and there have been many changes in Ubuntu and Chromium since that time.

We'd like to close this bug report due to its age and long period of inactivity so please let us know if you still see a problem which is related to the one that was reported.

If we do not hear from you this bug report will expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
