Bug Description

This is from a post on the message board:

"I purchased a new wireless (via bluetooth) keyboard yesterday. I have a laptop that I want it to work with. I plugged in the bluetooth adapter that came with the keyboard/mouse combo, and it was recognized just fine. I added the mouse and keyboard just fine, and they both work, with one caveat: the Shift, Ctrl, Alt, and other "meta" keys (like the Windows key) do not work. "

I have the same problem. I notice that in the keyboard preferences, if I show the keyboard, the keypresses are registered, but don't register anywhere else.

Same problem with my Lenovo Ideacentre A320 on Oneiric Ocelot.

If I press ctrl, shift or alt button while the screensaver is running, it makes it disappear. So, keys are working.
But if I press shift and a letter, the letter will remain lower-cased.
Alt+F4 doesn't neither close a window...

Done... I typed apport-collect 772116
I don't know why it posted so many comments instead of just one...

Meanwhile, I just found this bug which may be related to the same problem :

(But it's not the same keyboard)
