@facet Yes, code is basically the same. Both projects use similar initialization with that EV_REL parameter. Even xremap (not based by xkeysnail and written in rust) uses same parameters because author looked at xkeysnail code (as written in comments).

Here is keyszer patch that may work (created with git diff):

I think that this EV_REL line isn't required at all, because all these keyboard remapping tools don't work with mouse-like axes anyway. It would be good to find real reason of this bug, I've tried to do some testing but can't find anything.

@zaza I'm actually use kerszer, can it be fixed by similar patch? Or I have to move back to xkeysnail..

@facet I've decided to make an experimental patch and update package to fix this issue as I described here:

For me it fixes that problem, but I'm not sure if it is proper fix. It would be nice if someone could test it.

@facet I've encountered this too recently. Tried to use keyszer (xkeysnail fork) and xremap, both had same problems. So it is not only xkeysnail's issue.

It makes keyboard unusable with latest systemd version, can confirm systemd 252.4 works fine

@fabon Thanks, updated

Few days ago v0.4.0 has been released. It seems to me that the patch is now unnecessary, because that commit is included in the release. Also v0.4.0 depends on appdirs, so it is probably necessary to add python-appdirs to dependencies. I tried to modify PKGBUILD in this way and it worked fine in my environment.

I set "libinput Disable While Typing Enabled",then I run xkeysnail, it failed.

@aloxaf oops, thanks, I've forgot to change this. Now it must work properly.

Thanks a lot. But there is still a small problem on L22:

-    patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/modifiers.patch"
+    patch -Np1 -i "${srcdir}/revert.patch"
