[SOLVED] typed characters dropped in sudo -s

Post by loworderbit »

Hi, After a recent update, I noticed that after typing sudo -s, typed characters aren't always recognized (roughly half, but random). If I type ctl-c, everything seems to work correctly. I have tested in both Alacritty and Termite with the same results. I backed out my updates to July 1, and things start working again. When new updates re-applied, it breaks. I tried backing out sudo to 1.9.1-1 (from 1.9.2-1) and this did not resolve the issue.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

do not do sudo
just do su
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.

Thanks, yes su will accomplish what I need to do with sudo -s (and the issue doesn't appear with su), so this is a viable workaround.

The issue, however, remains.

Why marked solved? A workaround is far from a solution to a potential bug.

Thanks,
Dave
