yubikey input fail.

I've been using a yubikey to generate numeric OTP codes for logging into one of my servers when using friends PCs.

That's work well so far. But today I tried to use it on a french keyboard, where the "number" keys generate punctuation (the numbers are on the shifted version). Well, now, my yubikey then just enters a load of punctuation in place of the OTP code. Fail.

  1. Hi, and thank you for your blog post and feedback. This is a known issue with the French keyboard layout, a suggested workaround is to turn-on CAPS-LOCK or press the SHIFT key before emitting the YubiKey output by touching the YubiKey button. Hope that helps, and please let us know if you have any other feedback or questions.
