Hi guys,

For some reason when using internal keyboard I can't switch between workspaces except for workspaces 5 and 6. Don't have any key issues. External keyboard works as expected. Weird thing is why it only works for workspaces 5 and 6.

Don't know if this qualifies as a 'laptop issue' but since it only happens with the internal keyboard, I'm posting it here.

My i3 config lines for workspace switching,

```
set $ws1 "1"
set $ws2 "2"
set $ws3 "3"
set $ws4 "4"
set $ws5 "5"
set $ws6 "6"
set $ws7 "7"
set $ws8 "8"
set $ws9 "9"
set $ws10 "10"
# switch to workspace
bindsym $mod+1 workspace $ws1
bindsym $mod+2 workspace $ws2
bindsym $mod+3 workspace $ws3
bindsym $mod+4 workspace $ws4
bindsym $mod+5 workspace $ws5
bindsym $mod+6 workspace $ws6
bindsym $mod+7 workspace $ws7
bindsym $mod+8 workspace $ws8
bindsym $mod+9 workspace $ws9
bindsym $mod+0 workspace $ws10
```

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Which is $mod key ? I guess $mod+1-4 keys on internal keyboard are bound to some other function.

Arch is home!

That makes sense. I'm using Mod4, the windows key. I haven't manually set $mod+1-4 for anything except for i3wm. How can I see if those keys are bound to some other functions?
