[Solved] Freeze on razer additional keys press

Hi,

I'm running xfce 4.14 under archlinux 5.3.13-arch1-1.
I have Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboard.

This keyboard has additional keys M1-M5. When I press any of it, xfce freezes.
It seems to me like an out of range exception, but I can't find any useful information in logs.

I installed openrazer/razergenie and blackwidowcontrol, but it doesn't help:
- seems that openrazer and razergenie doesn't work with additional keys
- blackwidowcontrol can't find my keyboard

Is it possible to save xfce from dying on the keys enter?

That's what I finally catch:

I fixed it by uninstalling all video drivers and installing 'nvidia' package. (I have GeForce GTX 660)
Seems weird but ok.

Re: [Solved] Freeze on razer additional keys press

Thanks for sharing the solve. It is odd though that the video drivers would affect the keyboard.
