Physical keyboard symbols not working again
#1
Back when the keyboard came out, there were some hoops to jump through to get access to all of the symbols using, such as £-+, etc.

Eventually it was fixed properly, but now it seems that recent kernels have broken it again.  There are fixes for other OSes (Mobian, Arch), but I can't find anything for PMOS.  I'd be happy just to downgrade the kernel for now, but I can't find any instructions for that.

Anyone else encountered this, and solved it?

Using PMOS +Phosh, on OG Pinephone.

Same here, can't input any signs from the top row of the physical keyboard, such as "+", "-", "=", etc. in the latest stable release of PostMarketOS.

This patch: https://codeberg.org/HazardChem/PinePhone_Keyboard
seems to be for SXMO UI, but not for Plasma Mobile.

Maybe somebody got this keys to work and can share the magic here in forum?

Thanks!

Update 03.08.2022: Updated from 22.06 to edge. With newer Kernel 5.18 kernel - keyboard is working again. Top Row works with AltG Key.
