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 :: 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 :: 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

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard Misbehaving- Keys Not Immediately Recognized?

Jan 21, 2011

I'm having a weird problem with my keyboard. I have to hold on to the key that I want typed for about 1 whole second for it to be entered... the mouse click is okay, it's just the keyboard.Here's a rough outline of what happened, and the significants events that took place on the desktop that this is happening on.The computer originally had Debian Lenny on it. 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 :: 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 :: Autoremove After Upgrade To Stretch

Jan 31, 2016

I recently upgraded my Debian box from Jessie to Stretch. After this, apt informed me that I should issue "apt-get autoremove," however the package list to be effected was large and contained some important packages (xorg being just one example). Most of the packages are qt4 related, and I at first assumed qt5 equivalents had replaced them, but seeing network-manager and xorg in the list made me pause.

Debian :: Autoremove Deleted Most Of Software Including Desktop?

Jun 19, 2010

I recently installed virtual box on debian and after it had finished my terminal informed me that I could remove some "unnecessary" software by use of sudo apt-get autoremove. When I did this, some of the icons on the desktop changed and all of the icons in the drop down menu on the bar at the top of the screen also changed to ordinary folder symbols. The theme that I was using also went away. I restarted the computer and it booted back into a shell prompt with no GUI. I tried to get back to the GUI using alt+f7 but it didn't seem to exist

Debian :: Apt-get Autoremove Resulted In Blank GNOME Desktop?

Aug 17, 2010

I had installed Debian lenny just two dys back. i am using gnome-desktop. When using apt-get i tried apt-get autoremove and the result was that so many packages were removed for eg. nautilus, gnome-games, gnome-background etc. Then i tried to stop the process in between and installed the packages again (with apt-get install). Now after rebooting i am getting only the desktop without any icons and no commands are working. I can still go to single user mode. How can i get my desktop with all functions.

Debian :: Apt-get Autoremove, Blind Trust, And Semi-essential Packages?

Sep 7, 2011

I've been using Debian for around ~3 months now, though before that a certain derivative thereof since the start of the year.Long story short is that I was installing packages, as you do, when apt-get prompted that I run apt-get autoremove, as it does. So, trusting the computer, I do, not bothering to read the chunk of packages that it recommends to remove. Life goes on, until a reboot reveals that there are issues.Short story shorter, a quick cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep remove spits out the following:

root@kubrick:~# cat /var/log/dpkg.log | grep remove
2011-09-05 22:04:09 startup packages remove

Debian Hardware :: Getting Lenny Working On Macbook / Can't Use Brightness Keys To Change Screen Brightness?

Feb 9, 2010

I'd been trying to get into Linux before I bought it so I figured that I would try to get it onto my new Mac so that I could use it wherever I am. I decided to try Debian Lenny 5.0.3 a whirl after reading about all the different distros available. I've successfully installed it and I can get to it with rEFIt, and I have quite a few things working such as the video drivers and wifi. However, I've had trouble getting it to a level where it'd be usable away from home. Here are the main problems I'm worried about:

1) I installed pommed but I still can't use the brightness keys to change the screen brightness. I'm not sure if there's some other workaround for this?

2) I tried some recommended power management packages (gnome-power-manager) but it doesn't seem to be accessible or functional right now. I don't have any way to control it or get to it that is obvious to me. Is an icon or anything supposed to appear on the task bar when you install or what? Getting some sort of power management on here is important because it gets really lousy battery life otherwise.

3) Being a Macbook, there's no right-click button. Multitouch would be really nice (two-finger scrolling!) but I'd be OK with ANY way to right-click with the touchpad. I have a wireless USB keyboard/mouse combo that works at home at least . . . right out of the box too!

4) I've seen some packages called the Mactel PPA, but they are made for Ubuntu. Since Debian and Ubuntu are so similar, is there any way to make those work on Lenny? I think that if I got those to work, I could fix some of the problems above. Or do I have to install Ubuntu?

5) I just noticed that the sound doesn't seem to work yet either.

Debian Multimedia :: XF86Audio Multimedia Keys Not Working In Squeeze

Jun 23, 2011

I finally installed Squeeze on my laptop and found out that the XF86Audio multimedia keys do not work.

When I press them, they're correctly identified by xev but they do not produce the desired effect (raise/lower/mute volume, play/pause/stop/prev/next song in media players like Sonata).

Funnily enough though, they do work in Audacious, which has its own plugin to manage XF86Audio media keys.

So it's like the action of pressing these keys is not intercepted by the system and no event is triggered.

I think this might be due to a missing package or configuration but I have no idea where to look...

Debian Configuration :: No Sound From ALC892

Oct 7, 2015

Since setting up a new rigg featuring an Asus Z170-A the internal soundcard does not play any sound. The integrated soundcard is a Realtek ALC892, as shown by aplay -l.

List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1


Additionally I find that on my laptop (where the sound works) "default Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server" when doing aplay -L. However no such thing mentioned on my stationary (where the issue is). Might there be some issues with the PuseAudio server?

Also the HDMI from my NVIDIA gfx card is identified. However removing the gfx card and using the onboard gfx does not change a thing.

I've also checked alsamixer and made sure that the soundcard is unmuted. I've looked around on google and among other tested the solution presented in URL...

Debian Configuration :: No Sound With Nvidia Driver?

Jun 7, 2010

I recently installed Squeeze. I had sound with the video driver that came with the install. Then I installed the Nvidia driver from Nvidia website. The sound dissappeared. When I uninstalled the Nvidia driver and removed xorg.conf and rebooted again, the sound came back. Then I installed the Nvidia driver from (nvidia-glx, dev and settings) from Debian with Synaptic. The sound went away again. If I uninstall the nvidia driver and xorg.conf the sound will probably come back again. The sound driver is the one that came with the install.

The volumes are unmuted in the alsamixer. Somehow alsaconf command does not work.

My mother board is a ASUS M4N78 Pro with Nvidia IGP.

What can I do to have sound with the nvidia driver?

Debian Configuration :: Enable The Sound In Lenny?

Jun 30, 2010

I'm using Debian Lenny, the only problem that I have is that the sound card isn't recognize by the system, I have installed ALSA 1.0.20 and I followed several tutorials trying to enable my sound card (ATI tech Azalia (Intel HDA)but all tries fail.

So, after install another distro -debian based- in the same pc I figured out that the sound card is enable and running by default, the ALSA version is the same -1.0.20- but the kernel is different -2.6.31.xx- so my questions are:

1. do you recommend me to upgrade my lenny's kernel to fix the problem?

2. is there a way to upgrade specific packages -for example samba, alsa, kernel- using unstable or testing versions instead of upgrade the entire distro? actually I'm confortable with lenny

3. what configuration should I check in the "other" distro to use that parameters in lenny?

Debian Configuration :: No Sound On Intel 82801

Nov 27, 2010

I've recently installed stable (5.x, I think that's lenny...) on a laptop and there's no sound at all.

I had this problem years ago when I last installed linux on here. I solved it then and I thought the solution was unchecking "external amplifier" in alsamixer.

I believe my sound card (Intel 82801DB-ICH4) is detected and the appropriate driver loaded (snd_intel8x0) however, even running speaker-test produces no sound (no error either).

I've read that the intel hda have a model parameter found by greping for codec in /proc/asound/card? but I can't find any information about what codec is used in any path like that. Is there a model parameter for this card too? I'm on a philips freeline X10 laptop.

I ran alsaconf and nothing seemed to change. I tried alsactl init but the command init wasn't found, I suppose that must only be in newer releases. I installed libesd-alsa0 to replace libesd0 but that didn't help (should I revert this file? libesd0 says it's for oss). I also appended "options snd_intel8x0 index=0" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base which got the card registered as the first device.

Here are the outputs of commands I've seen used:

Debian Configuration :: No Sound With ION Tape Express

Dec 21, 2010

I bought the ION Tape Express to convert all my cassette tapes to mp3 on my computer. The software that came on the CD works fine in Virtualbox windows XP. I could be happy with this but would rather use Linux. The problem is Debian Squeeze sees the new USB device but I can't find a program that will record from it. I've tried gnome-sound-recorder, looked at k3b Audacity and several others. It might be because I don't know how to select the usb sound device.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Unmute HDA Intel Sound Card?

Aug 3, 2010

According to HDA Analyzer, my sound card is muted; however, I can't unmute it through HDA Analyzer or anything else. According to alsamixer, everything is unmuted, though. According to the ALSA documentation, there's no 'model' id for my codec -- Conexant 5069 -- so I don't have an option to put in /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf. What can I do to unmute the card???

I can make the touchpad work sending to the kernel the parameter "i8042.nopnp" at boot time(grub), but then I get the computer frozen for a second every five second so I decided to use a usb mouse, until I get another fix.As you can see I can use the laptop except that...I have no sound at all, I can only hear something using headphones.I've been searching the web but the only thing I found is a fix in ubuntu using some kernel-modules from backports repository, but can't install them on debian.
