Keyboard superkey not detected

Mon Jan 29, 2018 11:25 pm

My keyboard super key is not detected in the Solus Budgie version. (other buttons work fine and are detected)
I confirmed this with xev as well as showkey; each of which works by outputting a keycode when a button is pressed.
xev simply does not output anything when I press the super key.

My setup is somewhat complicated but my super key used to work when I was using Ubuntu.
So I have an external USB keyboard (a Logitech g710+) connected to a kvm switch (Iogear 2-port USB KVM switch) which then connects to a laptop dock that holds my x230 Lenovo Thinkpad.
Also, I am using the English (US) keyboard input source setting.

Any ideas of what I could do?
Thank you in advance.

My windows/super key seems to be working now. I don't know if a Solus software update did the fix or if some other change made it happen but I'm happy if it continues to work.
