CentOS 5 :: Change Keyboard Mapping On Login Screen?

I just installed Centos 5.2 with a netinstall usb key. I had no Belgium keyboard mapping available during installation, so I chose a fr-latin1 layout. Now this is the default keyboard mapping for the gnome login screen, and for every new user on the system. How can I change this to a Belgium keyboard layout? I can change it for myself within my gnome session in Preferences>Keyboard, but I haven't found how to change the "global" or default setting.

Ubuntu :: How To Change Key-mapping For Apple Keyboard
I have Ubuntu 10.04 (Netbook Remix) installed on Asus EeePC 1000. Sometimes I use Apple Wired Aluminum keyboard for comfortable typing. There is no problem for me with netbook's keyboard, but i want to change the keys for the Apple one. For example: make F1-F12 keys really work like F-keys, not control keys; make Fn key to work like Insert key, and swap Cmd/Alt keys.

So, the main question - is it possible to change the layout of apple keyboard without changing the behavior of netbook keyboard? If not, then maybe there are some "switchers" that can constantly change mappings from one to another and back? And, at last, if there is no such tools, then what is the easiest way to do it manually?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Keyboard Mapping And Brightness Control On Macbook 1,1 With Centos 5.5?
I tried to find the information by myself (google search, forum search, Faq, manual...) but i didn't find any clue. I installed CentOs 5.5 on a macbook model 1,1 and I have currently two issues :

The keyboard mapping is wrong (it didn't fit with the macbook keyboard, ex: the '-' is not on touch '6' for example...). Is there a way to apply macbook keyboard mapping? I didn't find how to modify the brightness of the screen. Where is this settings? It didn't appear in the video card settings that is very basic. Do I need to install a proprietary driver for my GMA on my macbook? Also, i will like to have this settings on the keyboard with the dedicated button (like for the sound that works well).

Debian :: No Keyboard And Mouse On Login Screen?
As the title says i have this error on both my main computer and my laptop. For my main computer see this post, that is when it happened. viewtopic.php?f=30&t=65743

I run the updates on my laptop a while ago and decided to restart it to check if everything went okay. It seems not.

The only way i can get on the desktop, is to choose the recovery mode, su to user and startx.

This is a common error during booting on both computers. Starting the hotplug events dispatcher: udevderror binding control socket, seems udevd is already running

It seems a little strange, same error on both computers.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Not Working In 11.04 Login Screen?
I am using ubuntu 11.04 32 bit. I tried to use my keyboard, until yesterday it works perfect. But this morning, I can not even login to my own desktop, as I do not see any feedback from the login screen when I type using the keyboard. completely white, nothing shown when I type using the keyboard. I tried different keyboards, it still won't work in the login screen. I tried to type to access bios, it works fine.I managed to remote using ssh, but when I type dmsg, it recognise the keyboard.

Ubuntu :: Replace The Onscreen Keyboard Used (for Example) On The Login Screen?
Is it possible to replace the onscreen keyboard used (for example) on the login screen? I'm currently using IOK as the onscreen keyboard on the desktop and would like to use it on the login screen.

Also, is it possible to automatically launch an onscreen keyboard (IOK) when you click on an input field?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard And Mouse Will Not Work Once Get To The Login Screen
I have a Logitech Wave keyboard and mouse for my computer. I am not sure which version of Ubuntu I am running on but I think it is 6.10. When I boot up my computer I can go into the BIOS and earlier today it would even let me press escape to seee which operating systems I could boot. Now it no longer lets me see the operating system I have (which is why I cant say which version of Ubuntu I have). It takes me to the log in page and asks for the username and password but I cant type and I cant move the mouse. Earlier I could also use Alt+F1-F12, but this is no longer working either so it just sits at the login page and nothing works at all. The computer that is having this problem is very old it is a Proteva and when I opened up the actual computer the processor says:

At startup the computer says that the processor is a: AMD K-6

I know that the BIO's are to old for Ubuntu to run properly because at startup it also says that: "ACPI :
BIOS age (1998 ) fails cutoff (2000), acpi=force is required to enable ACPI" it also says that: "ACPI : unable to load the System Description Tables."

I have'nt used this computer for about a year or two, but the last time I used it it worked perfectly fine. I have been seeing questions on the forums similar to mine, but their problems are on other versions of Ubuntu and their mouse's are said to work fine. I cant try any of the solutions for the problems I have read about because I cant open the prompt that you get when you are at the log in screen and press F2. I have no idea what to do.

Ubuntu :: Change Size Of On-screen Keyboard?
How do I change the default size of the on-screen keyboard on ubuntu netbook remix.I have a Dell Inspiron Duo, it functions as a Tablet Hybrid in which its screen can flip out to look and act as a function as a Tablet. However when I bring up the on-screen keyboard to use for typing on tablet mode, it is often too small for finger input (computer does not use a stylus) Resizing will be too difficult. So I need to know how to increase the default size of the on-screen keyboard when it comes up.

OpenSUSE Install :: Multiple Login From Screen / Keyboard And Mouse?
I know that in previous versions of OpenSuSE one could be in front of the screen/KBD/mouse get things started, and log into another session and get things started there and run some apps, and so on. Now with OpenSuSE 11.x I see no means in which to do so. Is there another way? Point being is that I want to run one application as one user session and another application in yet another user session. Either one I can get to by switching user accounts at one screen/kbd/mouse. Or through VNC. No need to run something like xen or VMWare and incur additional overhead. (It is next on my list to try though.

Ubuntu :: Random Mouse/keyboard Freeze In The Login Screen?
I downloaded and burnt the Kubuntu 10.04 release to a CD. I tried to install it. First time, couldn't find the disks and eventually it froze. Ok, second try, when it's contacting the "time server" (or whatever) another freeze, but this time I notice everything is running fine and then get a nice little image with the current time (increasing seconds and all). Third attemp, clicked the "update this installer" and it went fine. "Yay!" I thought. Well, a few minutes in my beautiful 10.04 system and again, another freeze. Hit the power button and to my surprise a "Shutdown" dialog shows up with a countdown. After 30 seconds it logs out and mouse is working again. I log back in and come here to write this long post, and as I was writing the title "Random mouse/ke..." guess what? Yeah, it froze again. And the little bar that goes after the writing continued happily blinking. Hit the power button but this time mouse and keyboard were still frozen in the login screen.

Short version: mouse and keyboard randomly freeze while the rest of the system apparently work fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Keyboard And Mouse Frozen At Login Screen
I let the update manager run overnight on my netbook because it was taking a while. When I woke up, my netbook was off. It may have shut off during the updates. Now, when I turn it on, it gets to the login screen but the keyboard and mouse don't work. Is there anything I can do without a Live CD? Unfortunately I don't have a flash drive or anything with me.

Hardware :: All 3 Keyboard LED's Flashing In Sequence At RedHat Login Screen
I did a quick search of the forums and noticed that 2 LED's flashing indicates some sort of kernel panic, but what about all three flashing, one at a time in sequence? I'm doing diskless booting of RedHat 5.1 on this machine but I'm hoping the problem isn't related to that, and just something simple. The OS loads, and I get to the login screen (not noticing anything about kernel panics during boot), but the keyboard doesn't work and the three lights flash. It's not a GUI login screen, so I don't know if the mouse would work.

Fedora :: Mouse And Keyboard Doesn't Work At Login Screen?
Got myself in a bit of a squeeze here. I was messing around with the Xorg install on my Fedora 12 system. I ended up reinstalling it. Now my mouse and keyboard work fine in single user mode / terminal. But if I try and boot to X they dont work at the login screen. HAL and udev are booting. Ive done a udevadm monitor test in single user mode and its seeing the devices connect and disconnect. Ive also tried both USB and PS2 devices. Same issue. Ive tried playing with xorg.conf and generating it with Xorg -configure :1 I dont know to use to fix it. After banging my head against the wall for 20+ hours I decided it was time to ask for help. m just Lynxing around the web at the moment =X

General :: Keyboard Layout Changed - Screen Locked Now Cannot Login
While I was away from my computer a friend changed my keyboard layout to a random layout thinking he could revert it via mouse actions only. Unfortunately, by the time I returned, my screen was locked. Now I cannot unlock my session to get back in to the KDE session to restore the correct keyboard layout.

However, I can log in to a console. In the console (e.g., Ctrl-Alt-F1), the keyboard layout is unchanged, so I can edit any text files and make any other changes required. How can I change the KDE keyboard layout from a console? I'm running Kubuntu 10.04. There is no .kderc file in my home directory. And Xorg.conf doesn't contain the settings either. I'm not sure where else to look.

General :: Keyboard Mapping - Lowercase 'v' Is Not Working
I have quite a strange issue with (supposedly) my keyboard mappings.

while using GNOME session:

lowercase 'v' is not working as it should - no keypress is reaching apps; while I'm holding V key depressed, gnome-terminal console shows a hollow cursor (just like when input focus is in some other window) and nothing is printed; uppercase 'V' is working just fine (that is Shift+V); if I press AltGr + V, a lowercase 'v' is printed; if I'm typing quickly, sometimes pressing V key to get a lowercase 'v' is not just being ignored, but also the next symbol typed is swallowed and not printed out; this issue is present for the USA keyboard layout, as well as for the Russian keyboard layout.

while using TTY console (Alt+Ctrl+F1, etc):

everything works as it should (i.e. lowercase ' is printed whenever I press it);
no problems with the physical keyboard.

I haven't done any editing of any gnome/X configs and/or keyboard mappings.

This is my Ubuntu 10.04 Linux version:

$ uname -a
Linux hostname 2.6.32-25-generic #44-Ubuntu SMP Fri Sep 17 20:05:27 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Update - stty output:

$ stty -a
speed 38400 baud; rows 43; columns 151; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = M-^?; eol2 = M-^?; swtch = M-^?; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W;

OpenSUSE Network :: Tightvnc Server On 11.4 And Keyboard Mapping?
I use opensuse 11.4 with TightVNC Server version 1.3.9. I use french keyboard mapping (yast configuration).When I connect with putty via ssh all is ok (keyboard mapping). But when I use tightvnc viewer on windows the mapping is not correct.I've verified many time the configuration of the keyboard in yast (graphical) and desktop options (french mapping). I can't map correctly. It seem there is no issue with direct attached keyboard.Another strange behavior is the shift key. I want to use . (need to press shift + and this put a >. But sometime if I press "shift + ," before then "shift + ;" it works.

I've passed long time on google and find no answer yet.Is there a issue with tightvnc server ?A bug with tightvnc viewer ? (I've tried with realvnc and same results).

OpenSUSE Install :: Changing Default Keyboard Mapping On Grub?
I have installed 11.2 with English as default language. During the installation, I tried to change the default keyboard mapping to Spanish, but right now, when the system boots it uses an English mapping. I've seen there is an option to change that on the grub menu and I would like it to default to Spanish. Is it possible? I haven't found much info on the web, but my guess is that changing the DEFAULT_APPEND in /etc/sysconfig/bootloader with an unknown-keyboard-related option will solve it.
