I’ve had the weirdest problem the other day. It was the first time I went back to using our DELL E1405 after being very comfortable with my company issued D620 (which I now had to surrender to my former employer). Everything was working well until I noticed a simple but very annoying problem:
CTRL+SPACE for Eclipse was not working!
I tried playing with the configuration, resetting everything to defaults, removing the plugins one by one. Nothing seemed to work. I tried a fresh copy and even got to the point of installing Netbeans. And guess what, CTRL+SPACE did not work for Netbeans either!
Which lead me to the conclusion that there must be something else causing the problem. I tried killing all the unnecessary processes one by one and got to the bottom of the problem.
It was the Logitech Quickcam v10 application. Unfortunately, I didn’t have internet connection at home which explains why I had to figure out the problem all by myself.
I tried searching the net when I got to the office and saw some posts that v11 of the application already fixes the problem.
What a relief!
