That they worked initially is a good sign, so most likely you can avoid the full reset.

I agree with @Hook's suggestion, but start with any app that is mentioned as active under Accessibility - or just switch its rights off under accessibility. And if that does not do it, focus on anything keyboard-related, or 'fancy', the more complex the larger the risk of it trying to be clever and mess of stuff.

You could try to just STOP rather than uninstall stuff first, with the risk of them being brought back to live, making tests harder. A reboot often restarts a lot of junk you may have stopped - thanks Android.... ūü§Ę

You MIGHT need to do a reboot after uninstalling some stuff, to see the effect.

Note on the first thing, if you did a Google restore of apps this MIGHT take quite a while, so you could have seen the keys working before some settings messed things up.

Good hunting - and please report back when you narrow down the culprit.


Sometimes in life you are a lucky guy, and the problem-app begins with an "A". Anydesk was the influencer in my case. I did not even had to uninstall it.  Just removed all the rights in the special-rights chapter.  And my physical keyboard is giving me the proper values again.

Thanks to all !

Slightly related - I had issues with FxService effectively disabling FinQwerty layouts on my Pro1x (only the default layouts worked correctly, FinQwerty layouts behaved as if I had the default stock QWERTY selected). I reported the issue to @Slion (the author of FxService), but he probably couldn't have analyzed it in detail due to only having Pro1 and not Pro1x.

I have recently ran into a similar issue on my Pro1.
I have installed AnyDesk which has installed a service and I had no FinQwerty-like layouts working until I have found that application was the cause of my issue and disabled its service.

(Pro1, LineageOS 18.1 here.)

QWERTZ with 'Physical Keyboard' set to 'German' indeed generally works. Although there are two bugs in the layout which make both the accent grave or backtick < ` > and the apostrophe < ' > unavailable [...]

The FinQuerty app which now also has layouts for the Pro1 X (thanks to @EskeRahn for mentioning this), fixes this issue with the "FinQuerty F(x)tec Pro1 X, German for physical DE QWERTZ" layout. Excellent.
