Debian Configuration :: Volume Keys Not Working / Configuring Superkey

Jan 15, 2010

I'm having trouble with my keyboard functions on my netbook (eeePC 1005HA running squeeze/sid - specific build being the one available on December 23rd 2009 - hasn't been updated since installation) - specifically, some of the function keys seem to be off - i.e. when pressing Fn+key, only some actually work. The specific ones I'm having trouble with are:
Fn+F10 (mute)Fn+F11 (vol. down)Fn+F12 (vol. up)

As far as I can remember, they've never worked; at first I thought it wouldn't be an issue for me, having the volume panel, but the more time goes on, the more annoying it's becoming. Also, as it was a M$ machine at purchase, it has a Windoze key on it, which I'd like to configure to actually do something useful - preferably to open the main menu, if possible - but have so far failed to find any guides on how to do it. (Have Googled on multiple occasions, to no avail.)

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Autoremove - Sound Keys Not Working

Apr 20, 2010

apt-get suggetsed I should remove some packages I was no longer using. I've read the threads that explain this, but unfortunately I did that just now, not when I actually ran the damn command. I must say, however, that there were lots of things I wasn't actually using, so it was useful in a way. But there is a problem:

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and to get my sound keys working (the mute, volume up and volume down keys) I had to go to Settings-->Regional & Accessibility-->Keyboard Layout and there in Keyboard model I chose the option Dell Laptop/Notebook Inspiron 6xxx/8xxx. I know that's not exactly my model, but that made my sound keys work fine. Well, since I did the autoremove thing, that stopped working. I haven't got a clue what library was being used to get the sound keys working.

Debian Configuration :: LVM Volume - Swap Not Working / Activated

Jul 29, 2010

I'm running Debian testing/unstable, with my swap on an lvm volume. When I boot into the system, the swap doesn't become activated, even though there are messages that point to the contrary (for instance: "activating swap file...done"). After it's done booting, I run the command "free" and it shows that there is no space allocated to swap. "swapon -a" doesn't load the swap file either -- I have to do "swapon /dev/mapper/xxx-xxx". The swap appears in fstab, and also in /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume.

Debian Multimedia :: 8.0 Jessie - Volume And Fn Keys Doesn't Work

Mar 30, 2015

I recently install a Debian 8.0 Jessie on a Laptop Dell latitude E6540 with gnome 3.14+3. But the problem is that it doesn't recongnize my multimedia buttons, I tried some methods but I didn't get results.

Code:
Code: Select all$showkey --scancodes
volume up   -- 0xe0 0x30 0xe0 0xb0
volume down -- 0xe0 0x2e 0xe0 0xae
volume mute -- 0xe0 0x20 0xe0 0xa0

$showkey --keycodes
volume up   -- 115
volume down -- 114
volume mute -- 113

[Code] ....

When I reassinged the keys on Settings>Keyboard>Shortcuts to F7, F8 and F9 it works, but when use the keys volume up, down and mute It doesn't show anything.

The same happens with Fn + Brightness keys, in this case it worked the first time but then stop to work I don't know why..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Soundcard Volume Controls With Laptop Volume Keys?

Oct 29, 2010

I've got my xubuntu 10.10 install just about perfect on a little acer aspire d250, apart from a small sound useability issue: In the interests of simplicity and resource usage I removed pulseaudio. After a bit of fiddling I got it so that my USB soundcard (ProDac) is recognized and automatically set as the default soundcard when plugged in. Any sound applications automatically use the USB sound if it present, no need to around with pulse. The only problem is that my netbook's volume control keys still only control the master volume of the inbuilt soundcard, and have no effect on the usb sound. Does anyone know of a way to change which sound device these keys actually effect? I'd like to write a little script so that when the usb device is detected the keys are remapped.

Ubuntu :: Use Super Keys As Volume Up And Volume Down In Karmic?

Mar 17, 2010

In Intrepid Ibex, I was using the left Super key as Volume Down and the right Super key as Volume Up, because it was just so convenient.

However when I go to the "Keyboard Shortcuts" window in Karmic, it doesn't let me assign the Super keys to anything. I mean like, I can use the Super Keys along with other keys, but not by themselves.

Is it somehow possible to use the Super keys for Volume Up and Volume Down in Karmic?

Debian Configuration :: Configuring NTP SRV In Local Client?

Jan 5, 2011

I'd like configuring NTP service on my Lenny Debian client to retrieve time from my local NTP server, so I thought to configure /etc/ntp.conf and to insert into crontab this command 'ntpd -qg', which is indicated in man. Can I run ntpd service to synchronize time for my client, avoiding to listen on port 123, beacuse my scope is to alignment time on client and to not give service to others, for this scope there is ntp server !

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Sources.list File ?

May 19, 2011

About configuring my sources.list file.

The default file was:

To which I have added this: deb [url] stable all

Today I decided to include again Debian Volatile and discovered that it doesn't exist anymore and that I can get the same packages using this line: deb [url] squeeze-updates main

And the first question is: is this the same than debian-security?

Then, I decided to use [url] to make things less confused, and this was the output:

The first line is Ok. The second line, I guest it's the same than my second line. But, the third, is something different. So, the main question is: what is the difference between squeeze-proposed-updates and squeeze-updates? Are those repos completely separated from squeeze/updates (in security.debian.org)? And, what else should I add to have an always up-to-date and secure system?

Debian Configuration :: Make Fn Keys Work Independently Of Environment

Jan 5, 2016

I want fn* keys working for all users in all DE/WM and at tty too. I want it even if nobody logged in. Is it possible? How to set it up?

I mean these keys:

toggle wifikbd backlight +/−screen backlight +/−enable/disable screentoggle screensenable/disable touchpadvolume controls

I understand that some of them may work only with Xorg (e.g. toggle screens), but screen and kbd backlight and volume may work at tty too (because I can change this from tty when xorg is down). I know how to do it all from the console, but I want to bind keys with actions.

E.g. I can change kbd backlight with dbus and attach this action to key in my wm config, but it is not what I want. I want to make it global. I don’t understand which layer may provide the functionality for all users. Now only two keys works as I expect: toggle wifi and toggle touchpad. I haven’t set it up, it works out of the box.

Asus N56VZ, Debian stretch.
Code: Select alluname -a

At some point of time, I just started getting everything from backports... and after some things and hops later, the computer does in fact report having Debian 6.0.Anyway - I again did an upgrade... and now the problem occurs.

Debian Configuration :: Reverse Notebook Function Keys To Default (no Fn)?

May 17, 2011

The top row of keys on my notebook are currently assigned to various media functions (brightness, volume, play, stop, etc.) These keys are rarely used, and it would be better if they were assigned to the function keys (f1,f2,f3,...) by default, rather then using the fn key to access them. Locking the fn key down is not an option. What can I do?

Debian Configuration :: Configuring Ureadahead - No Pack Files In Folder

Jul 26, 2010

First off I am aware ureadahead isn't in the repos, but thought this forum would fit the best regardless. I installed upstart, then the deb package on packages.ubuntu.com and rebooted. The /var/lib/ureadahead folder exists but there are no .pack files in that folder. I tried running "service ureadahead start" but it said "Service failed to start". Anyone used ureadahead on Debian?

Fedora :: Volume Control Keys On Keyboard Don't Control Volume Anymore

Oct 29, 2009

Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.

This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update.
I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?

Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1

Debian :: Multimedia Keys Not Working After Upgrade

Jul 29, 2015

Today I did the following:

Code: Select allapt-get upgradeapt-get dist-upgrade

After a reboot the multimedia keys are not working anymore.

Also Code: Select allxev doesn't give any output when pressing the multimedia keys.

I've also checked the packages that were upgraded, but none seems (to me) to be changing anything in regard to key events.

Code: Select allStart-Date: 2015-07-29  09:17:10
Commandline: apt-get upgrade -V
Upgrade: libasan1:amd64 (4.9.3-2, 4.9.3-3), gdisk:amd64 (1.0.0-2, 1.0.0-3), cpp-4.9:amd64 (4.9.3-2, 4.9.3-3), libstdc++-4.9-dev:amd64 (4.9.3-2, 4.9.3-3), libpanel-applet0:amd64 (3.16.1-3, 3.16.1-4), python-debianbts:amd64 (1.12, 1.13),

[Code] ....

I'm on the Debian testing branch. Initially I used xfce, but am now using i3.

Why there are no events after the upgrade? Maybe I should downgrade some of the above packages?

Debian :: Mouse / Touchpad And Keyboard Not Working After Configuring Xorg

Jul 31, 2011

I was trying to tweak my video card's performance by configuring the xorg.conf file. There were many lines unrelated to the card there; so, to make the file cleaner, I decided to delete all the sections except the one I was dealing with. Obviously I shouldn't have done that. After rebooting the system, all the hardware that provided human interface stopped working. Now I have to find a way to delete that xorg.conf file. The computer is still connecting to the internet, and I have another computer running Debian available. Is there a way to access the broken computer with the other one?

Debian Configuration :: Error Mounting Volume - Authentication Required

Aug 31, 2015

After having problems with lxde crashing while running Jessie, and re-installing Wheezy, I am not able to mount my WinXP drive. In the past I was able to run pcmanfm and mount the drive from there. It would ask for my root password and then would mount the drive. Now, however, when I click on the drive icon it gives me an error message saying authentication required.

One thing is that when I installed Wheezy I had the WinXP drive disconnected so as to not inadvertently install Wheezy on the wrong drive (I have two identical drives). After installing I connected the WinXP drive and then did a grub update. I can boot either drive, as expected, but I can not mount the WinXP drive from pcmanfm. Do I need to change the Policykit?

Debian Configuration :: Decrypt Luks Volume With A Keyfile On Boot From Grub

Jul 6, 2015

I have install a debian jessie in my laptop, i create a lvm volume with /, /home, etc and a /boot partition outside. the i move this partition to the lvm volume and boot from it, everything it´s okay and it works.

The problem is that wen boot it ask me the passphrase to load grub, and then, when grub loads the kernel, it ask me again the passphrase.

I read that i can pass a key file to the initramfs to solve this, but where i see it, he uses mkinitcpio, and i can´´t find this package in the debian repos, it an arch package, also i tried this option [URL] ...

But it asking me the passphrase 3 times, and the third fails, the sistem starts, but i read the fail in the log.

Ubuntu :: 11.04: Cannot ALT+Tab Or Use Superkey Shortcuts

Apr 29, 2011

I'm using 11.04 with Ubuntu Classic. I can not ALT+Tab anymore, or use any of the Super shortcuts. I did not upgrade. I used clean install. I can't use any Super key shortcuts either. In 10.10 I could use Super + A to show all windows, it was really handy, now I can't. I have Compiz enabled and everything, along with the advanced config program. Where do I go to enable these features (if they are even in Natty at all?) I have Expose and Desktop Wall module of Compiz enabled, by the way. Strangely enough, it does work in Unity now, I don't know why. It does not work in Ubuntu Classic.

Fedora :: Can't Change Global Volume Using Applet - Function Keys / Resolve It?

Jun 14, 2009

Sound is my #1 issue on F11.
Most of the time I can't change the system wide volume setting by pressing the function keys on my laptop (the volume indicator doesn't even show up). When that happens (and I havent't been able to find out why and under what conditions that happens) the volume applet on my panel also becomes useless. Useless meaning that I can slide the slider up and down with no effect on the audible volume. I can still change the volume within the individul applications (rhythmbox, totem, ...) with success.
Adjusting the volume via gst-mixer or pavucontrol does also works as expected. It's really just the volume keys and the panel applet that refuse to cooperate.

About this system (pretty standard intel_hda, no problems with F10)code...
