This only happens on one of my installations. I am using i3 window manager. Music plays without any problem but when I move to another desktop and do any kind of editing such as composing an email tyhe keyboard and mouse are unusable. I cannot get to any other desktop. Any key strokes are ignored. I can access the computer via ssh from another but killing deadbeefg does not free it up. I have to physically restart the box via the restart button.
I removed deadbeef and all traces of it in my home directory and anywhere it showed up under /usr. After reinstalling it happens all over again.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
