Got a P2MAX the other day, the end goal being using it with Linux. Turns out the combo CTRL+ALT+F1 does not work, which is kind of a big issue. The keys themselves are okay, just the combo does not work. Somehow the MCU responsible for scanning the keyboard is doing something (very) wrong.
Is there any chance a fixed firmware could be provided by GPD? If yes, can I flash it under Linux or EFI?
There is also the chance that this is a keyboard matrix ghosting issue, which would be very sad if true, as it will make this unfixable by design. In which case the designer who did this is quite the amateur.
Really, no one so far ever tried and noticed that you can’t go to first virtual console in Linux?
Hope GPD folks can be notified about this. I own two P2 and one P2Max, and some problems are bit ridiculous in otherwise good products.
