Ubuntu :: Emulate Right-mouse-click With Hardware Button?

Jul 25, 2010

I would like to assign right-mouse-click behaviour to a hardware button. I can associate a keypress, or a combination of keypresses with an "xdotool click 3" command via the Gnome keyboard shortcuts.

I have the scancode of the hardware button so can use

setkeycodes scancode keycode

to mimic any key of my keyboard. However, I don't want the hardware button to mimic a single key of my keyboard that is already in use, since then the keyboard key will also activate xdotool.

So I think I need:

- either a way to associate that particular scancode with an (outlandish) keypress combo rather than a single keypress;

- or a keycode which is not currently in use, to bind to the scancode. Are there any like that and how would I find out? In the Gnome Keyboard Shortcuts list there is stuff like "XF86AudioMedia" which I'm not using -- but does that correspond to a numerical keycode value which setkeycodes understands?

General :: Using Keyboard To Emulate Left And Right Mouse Buttons

Oct 15, 2010

I am running Linux Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron laptop that I bought at a garage sale for 50 cents. After spending quite a few hours resurrecting it, it works just fine except for the left and right mouse buttons on the touch pad. They do not function.Is there a way to emulate the left and right mouse buttons from the keyboard?(I know that I can just plug in a mouse, but I would rather just use the keyboard if possible.)

Debian Configuration :: Accidental Double-click Prevention ?

Apr 17, 2011

There's a physical problem with my Microsoft mouse (and from what I've heard many other Microsoft and Logitech mice) where it accidentally double clicks during what is intended to be one click from me. I was thinking that surely some software that ignores the next click input from the mouse if it is within say 50ms (At a guess) as the last click would solve this problem and increase the longevity of these mice. Is there an option for this somewhere? Perhaps it would be easy to program a simple script or something for this?

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard And Mouse Or Maybe Screen - Freezes

Mar 29, 2010

So it's a beautiful day and I'll be happily using my computer when I realise that the screen is no longer showing that I'm typing or moving my mouse (or finger across a touch-pad). I can leave my computer in this frozen/crashed state for hours. My only recourse is to drain the battery or hold down the power button until the computer shuts down. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 6400 laptop/notebook. As my memory serves, it has an ATI graphics thingy. Radeon 1400, maybe. But I've had the computer for years and this behaviour has emerged only the past couple of months, with seemingly increasing frequency.

The OS is
# uname -a
Linux polaris 2.6.32-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Sun Jan 10 22:40:40 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
(aka Squeeze?)

Sometimes this happens within minutes of turning the computer on and logging into Gnome. Sometimes this happens only hours after I've started using the computer (mainly just surfing the web). Sometimes it is preceded by a loud boop sound and the following if I have console open, sometimes not. So maybe that's unrelated. But that happened just now so I thought I'd throw it in.

One weird thing: Usually this happens within an hour of starting to use the computer, but one occasion I noticed I had not had the problem for several hours. On that occasion, the only thing I noticed I was doing that was also unusual: I had turned on and forgotten about a kvm virtual machine. After I shut down the vm, I had about only a minute before the freeze. I'm surprised now that it hasn't frozen since I started typing thing. Maybe I should always keep this forum open in a browser window.

Debian Configuration :: Changing Keyboard Layout On Console?

Apr 9, 2010

I know there are many threads regarding this topic.I probably read most of them. At installation time I told Debian to use German keyboard layout (since I am from Germany). Now I want to switch it to American keyboard layout. In X this was no problem. But in the tty consoles I cant get it changed. It does not matter to me if it is system wide or user wide because I am the only user. (system wide would be a little bit more preferrable because it would affect the super user too, I think).I tried dpkg-reconfigure console-data
and selecting my desired layout. This changes the Layout to American until reboot

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard And Mouse Not Reacting After Boot?

Jan 22, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I installed a new 4-core Lenovo PC and installed Squeeze on it - keeping it updated every day. When kdm or gnome display the login screen, my USB-connected keyboard and mouse don't react. When I then unplug and re-attach them into the same socket everything ist fine. Surely this can't be working as intended? I can however get into BIOS-Setup as usual during the initial boot-phase by pressing Crtl-S and F1. Things also are fine when selecting the debian version to run from the multi-boot screen.

I am enclosing the kern.log of the last boot below (don't know how to attach files!). In that I can see that on line 530 ist says New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c03e (address: 5; optical Logitech mouse) and then on line 542 New USB device found, idVendor=046d, idProduct=c31c (address: 6; keyboard).
It seems to get "interesting again on line 632 etc. with the message usb 2-1.8: USB disconnect, address 6.

-------------------------------------
2.754607] usb 2-1.5: new full speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard Freezes Periodically In Testing

Feb 17, 2011

I am running testing (with fluxbox) and my keyboard periodically freezes, meaning whatever I type in it doesn't respond. This lasts a few seconds (can be 2-3 or sometimes even more like 10) and one's it comes back I get all the keystrokes I was typing during the freeze. The frequency of the freezes can be like 4-5 times every hour and are very annoying. I can't seem to relate them to anything, they can occur during heavy usage but also when the box is doing absolutely nothing but waiting lazily for me to type some google search terms.

Can anybody help me track this problem down? At the moment I am using a wireless keyboard but this must be unrelated since I tested a couple of other keyboards (both wireless and wired) and the problem persists.

Debian Configuration :: 8.1 - Keyboard Doesn't Work On Resume From Suspend

Jun 19, 2015

I'm running Debian 8.1 KDE on a 2007 dv6 laptop. Model number is worn off. lol but the specs:

Intel i3 first gen m 330
4GB RAM
Intel (ironlake) graphics

First off, closing the lid to my laptop doesn't trigger suspend, or anything no matter what I set it to in power options.

I can suspend using "systemctl" or suspend from the "Leave" menu, but upon turning my computer back on, my touchpad and keyboard don't work.

Sometimes, my touchpad will start working after about 15 seconds, but the keyboard doesn't come back. I have to hard reset.

I have a feeling it's something to do with systemd, but I'm not super proficient in linux. Just an end user who is friendly with a terminal.

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 :: Keyboard Behaving Strangely Deb Installed On Macbook?

Mar 6, 2011

Yesterday I installed Debian 6 on my Macbook, with dualboot. Everything is working fine, except for the keyboard. As I'm typing, I see the mouse arrow moving a bit and strange things happen, such as text under the arrow being highlighted or clicked.

Other things as Right-Click, selecting text and other mouse-related events also happen. Pretty much all the mouse events are randomly fired while I'm typing on the keyboard.

It's being really hard to type like this. Anyone have any ideas of what might be the cause and how I can fix this?

Debian Configuration :: Sid: Laptop Keyboard + Touchpad Not Working After Upgrade?

Apr 13, 2011

on my netbook I have a Debian unstable/sid system. A few days ago I did an apt-get (dist-)upgrade which I think also updated the X-Server. Since then my netbooks keyboard and touchpad are not working as soon as the desktop is started (I think gdm).
The Keyboard works during the Grub selection and also in recovery mode (Root Terminal), so I'm sure its not a hardware problem. Could it be that the X-Server unloads the kernel modules for those two devices?Also if I plug in a USB keyboard or mouce they are working.

Debian Configuration :: Keyboard Layout Used At Boot For Encrypted Filesystem?

Jun 28, 2011

how can I set the keyboard layout used by Debian to enter the password of my encrypted filesystem?

After my recent "aptitude upgrade", I have not been able to mount my encrypted filesystem anymore. I have discovered that the keyboard layout used to enter the password has changed. Problem is that with such layout I can't enter some of the characters composing the password. The encrypted filesystem looks intact, since I have been able to mount it and backup my files by means of a live CD. That means that I can edit any system file, if needed.

Every technique I have found to change layout cannot be employed in this case, since they rely on the system being up and running. I've tried editing /etc/default/keyboard, but that does not work.

Debian Configuration :: USB Magnetic Stripe Reader Treated As A Second Keyboard?

Jul 26, 2011

I am new to Linux but have installed debian using the 'net method. The computer, in general, works fine. I have a USB keyboard which works OK and a Magnetic Stripe Reader which the OS thinks is another keyboard. If I open a terminal then swipe a credit card the data are transfered to the terminal screen at the cursor which I do not want.

How do I prevent the OS from grabbing the MSR? I want to use a program to address it as "/dev/hiddev0" or similar for read and write. I have tried "blacklist hiddev0" in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf but to no avail.Regarding these forums, I, for the life of me, cannot understand why a search for USB turns up empty when I can see the term in several titles on the first page of topics.

Debian Configuration :: Edited Xorg.conf, Now Lost Some Keyboard Functionality?

I tried to edit my xorg.conf to try and encourage Debian to handle my joypad better (stop recognising it as a mouse). However, it didn't work and i couldn't get back into X.So, i entered recovery mode and deleted the contents of xorg.conf,got back into X and then edited xorg.conf back to how it was.Right so far so good.Yet, now i cannot use the backlash key in keyboard shortcuts. I have a number of shortcuts set up to incorporate this key and they no longer work, neither in GNOME nor Openbox

Ubuntu :: Right-click With Keyboard (11.04)?

General :: Right Click Using The Keyboard From Ubuntu On A Mac?

Dec 2, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu on a Macbook Pro. How do you right-click using the keyboard in this setup? I've read that holding down the command key simulates pressing the "context menu" button on a Windows machine, but this behavior doesn't seem to be present in Ubuntu. I also don't see any way to configure this in Ubuntu's keyboard shortcut preferences dialog. Is there anyway else to do it?
