    If you mean the hardware buttons, i have the same problem.
    It started when upgrading to android 7. for a few weeks it was fine, but then suddenly the hardware buttons don't trigger the events the should have. When pressing one of the three buttons, they trigger the buzz like always, but no software response. When switching to software buttons, all is fine.

    One way to fix this problem is to do a factory reset and don't restore from google backup.
    Unfortunately after 4 weeks, the problem is back.

    For now i'm downgrading to android 6 and hopefully the problem won't reappear.
    It is some kind of software bug, the hardware buttons aren't broken.

    I'm running a opt, with android 7.1.1 Oxygen Os (problem also happened on the 7.0.1)

    Sounds like software is not correctly doing it's thing regarding the buttons.
    Maybe try reinstalling latest OS or rolling back to previous one

    I've reinstalled oxygenos 3.2.8 (android 6.0.1) and all is fine again.
    hopefully it will stay this way.

    I am also facing the same issue. I tried reinstalling the same ROM version (4.0.3) but It didnt solve the issue. I think I'll have to downgrade to android 6 :(

    I have been having the same problem. When I installed Lineage os, My home button and ear speaker didn't work, I tried reinstalling it using the app and still didn't work. I even tried resurrection remix os and still does it. Both its function, fingerprint scanner, and vibration does not work.

    For me when the home button is set to open search assistant by long press, it doesn't work. Whereas, opening voice search for example works fine.
    Eagerly waiting for a fix.
