I'm having similar problems with my laptop. I might give it a try with a plug-in keyboard sometime.
It could be that the keys are just wearing out.
Possibly. It is quite old. A plug in keyboard would be an easy fix at least so I hope it is that!

Somewhat, yes. It has been a while since I used OpenSuse, I use Debian these days. 11 is quite old, likely from around the time I was using it.

Thanks, I'll get back to you when I next try to get on line with the Suse machine.

I have 11 and, I think, 13. Not sure which is on the machine. At the moment it's all disconnected.

If anyone has KIS security and it has decided to not block ads on youtube anymore, personally, I think they sold out to youtube, apparently they cant do anything about it, which i find hard to believe as they had no problem for all the years i have had this and it suddenly doesn't work for the past few weeks, they suggest reinstalling chrome (did it, it did nothing) I ended up installing Adblock Plus, does a great job.

ABP has sold out as well (certain "partners" are allowed to show their ads). All the cool kids are using uBlock Origin nowadays. Nary a problem on YouTube, but I occassionally run into ads on Facebook, until uBlock updates their algorithms. I also run NoScript, but that can take a little getting used to (it blocks all scripts on all sites, so unless you have a whitelist already downloaded, it can be harrowing to create your own).
