I am having problems typing in the edit windows on Raspbian. When I click in any edit window (I tried the text editor and IDLE) focus does not shift to the edit window. Any keys I press act on the background window (move between menu items or icons) not on the window in focus.
I can highlight text in the window using my mouse, but I can’t type in the window.
This problem is happening when I access the BrickPi using a directly connected keyboard, monitor and mouse as well as when I use the VNC from my laptop.
