Is there anything in the *Message* buffer? Thanks! I didn't know C-h l, and I never thought to check messages. Sorry, I'm a non-tech, learn-what-I-need-as-I-go-but-committed-to-FOSS guy. Unfortunately, messages doesn't show anything, and here's the output of C-h l, which I ran first as a marker, then typed a commonly misspelled word, did M-S-$, and then ran it again: C-h l [view-lossage] m [org-self-insert-command] i [org-self-insert-command] s [org-self-insert-command] p [org-self-insert-command] e [org-self-insert-command] l [org-self-insert-command] l [org-self-insert-command] C-h l [view-lossage] Nothing between the last two, which is when I did M-S-$ > > I could not suggest something in the case of wayland session, but if > it is X11 then attempt to acquire key grab should fail if another > application already set this shortcut.

Just to be sure that $ is in its usual place yet. > So, that took me down a rabbit hole that led me nowhere in terms of understanding wayland, Xorg, or X11 configs, BUT, somewhere down there I got to thinking about how one of the first things I do on a new system is remap Ctrl to Caps Lock. I usually just do setxkbmap -layout us -option ctrl:nocaps, but in attempting to see if there was a problem there I was led to closely examine Tweeks Additional Layout Options, where I saw Shift Does Not Cancel Num Lock, choose 3rd lvl instead. I have no idea what 3rd level is, but before I ticked it I turned off my number lock, and C-S-$ worked! So I ticked it and it stopped working. So I unticked it and ticked Number keypad always enters digits, which is, of course, why I use Num Lock to begin with. With that ticked Emacs behaves as expected. I have always used Num Lock and never had that problems Wow! Thanks for taking the time to put me in the rabbit hole on an OT message!!! Frustrating, but less frustrating than a new distro or DM, and I learned some things! I am really grateful! Cheers, Bo Grimes
