Hi,

Today I connected the apple wireless keyboard via bluetooth (hid_apple, bluez5). It works nicely in the X (mate desktop) and also in the console mode, across reboots. It only works weird in display managers (tested with Lightdm and Slim), and I cannot login because it's impossible to enter my password. The keyboard is detected, but the keymap seems totally wrong only in the display manager (Enter key is not working and '0' puts '/'. Most keys do not put printable characters). Once I enter the desktop (using a USB keyboard), the keyboard is working fine. And, it acts weird again if I get back to the display manager (e.g., suspend, logout).

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
