Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Lag And / Or Bouncing In Squeeze

I have a quite strange problem with my keyboard. When I type text fast the cursor seems to lag (for some milliseconds) as if it can't process so many characters so quickly. As a result some of the characters I have typed are omitted and sometimes I get double characters (bouncing). Sometimes this problem gets really annoying and I can't find any information about it. I'm trying to find out if it is a hardware or a software problem, but I can't figure out any way to do this. I've read that xkbset can solve bouncing, but in my case it didn't really help. I use a laptop (Toshiba Satellite C660) with Debian Squeeze (kernel 2.6.38-2-amd64).

Hardware :: Mouse And Keyboard Not Working Debian Squeeze With Kde?
I have debian with kde on a laptop with a built in ps/2 keyboard and touch pad mouse which have been working without problem since i bought the computer. However, recently i booted the computer up and all of a sudden the mouse and keyboard are not functioning. I know it is not a hardware problem because i can type in the BIOS password, make the selection between normal and recovery mode in grub, and can type in all of my passwords to unencrypt my hard drive.

Also, it recognizes the keyboard all the way up until the point where kde starts, at which point it loads a login screen with the mouse and cursor on the screen, but no ability to type, not even caps lock or ctrl+alt+f1 to switch to console mode. does anyone know why this is? I have performed not updates and have not changed the configuration of my computer so i am not sure why this would happen.

P.S.1 out 15 times when i load the part where i need to type in the passwords to unencrypt the hard drive the keyboard will stop working then instaed of with kde.

Debian Installation :: Keyboard Not Identified During Installing Squeeze
I am running lenny on my PC ( amd 64 / nvidia graphic ) without any problems. Since last week I tried to change to squeeze - without success. First step - update from lenny to squeeze accordingly to the upgrade description from the Debian homepage. After nearly 2 hours without any error message - Result : System dosen't boot after upgrade.

So I went back to lenny and tried the second step to get Squeeze working. I got the DVD "Debian-6.0.0-amd" and started the installation. After the second screen the keyboard is no longer identified and I cannot go on with the installation.

Debian Multimedia :: Logitech G11 Keyboard On Squeeze - Global Shortcuts In KDE
I have a Logitech G11 keyboard with additional function keys from G1 to G18 and I added those keys to my XKeysymDB and ~/.xmodmaprc accordingly. According to xev, all those keys are working properly, eg.:

$ xev
KeyPress event, serial 35, synthetic NO, window 0x3400001,
root 0x15d, subw 0x0, time 3518287, (167,-33), root:(1501,366),
state 0x10, keycode 175 (keysym 0x15000001, G1), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes:
XFilterEvent returns: False

Now, if I try to bind any of those keys to global shortcuts in KDE I got a dialog telling: "The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt." these keys were working perfectly well in Lenny and KDE 3.5. I did some research, and it really seems that this is a some kind of "feature" in KDE 4.2 or Qt. So, is there any way to fix this easily in Squeeze without switching to Wheezy or even Sid?

Debian Multimedia :: Keyboard And Mouse Freeze After Login In Squeeze
I have a problem with mouse and keyboard. Both freeze within 30sec to half an hour after logging into squeeze 64bit (using gnome). My hardware is Asus P7P55D EVO (tested with linux according to ASUS) with Intel i5 760 CPU. I use IBM keyboard and Trust PS2 mouse. I also have MSI HD4350 graphics card, that was at least listed on Ubuntu to be supported, worked fine also with Lenny.

When using same combination with Lenny (64-bit) I never found any problem with either keyboard nor mouse, even running long nights. However there was need to upgrade to Squeeze since it has newer kernel supporting the sensors on board my MB. I used same mouse and keyboard also on Ubuntu 9.10 and had never problems. However when I upgraded to new MB I started with Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit version and experienced same keyboard and mouse freeze as I have now in squeeze. Only way out from this status is hard reset using PC reset button.

I connected with putty to my linux box and found following (while the linux box was on frozen state) from dmesg on keyboard: :/var/log$ dmesg | grep -i keyboard [ 1.064628] input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /devices/platform/i8042/serio0/input/input0

Networking :: Iptables Nat Bouncing Through Interfaces
I have 2 interfaces (only one wan facing) with public ip addressing. when i nat to the outside network, inside routed networks work fine, but when i nat to the inside interface the routed networks no longer work. That is too say when I nat to an inside ip, I appear natted, and not routed, to routed ip. My question relates to iptables: How to I say 'nat everything but the routed networks'? I have found that -d ! x.routed.1.x/x works: but I would like to write the rule so that it says -d ! x.routed.1.x/x + x.routed.2.x/x

Nat outside, working routed net:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -i x.ouside.eth.x -s 192.x.x.x/x -j SNAT --to x.outside.eth.ip

This works and I get 1 routed network (I have to drop the -i to make it work - why?):

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.x.x.x/x -d ! x.routed.1.x/x -j SNAT --to x.inside.eth.ip

I would like something like this:

iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -s 192.x.x.x/x -d ! x.routed.1.x/x + x.routed.2.x/x /
-j SNAT --to x.inside.eth.ip

OpenSUSE :: Bouncing Icons But Software Not Loading?
I have 2 icons on my Desktop (Firefox and Thunderbird) on my newly installed openSUSE 11.2, which when I click on them the icon bounces for about 30 seconds, but then stops bouncing and the software doesn't load. I've deinstalled and reinstalled the software to no avail. What causes these icons to bounce but then not load? Is there anyway I can fix this so the software loads normally? I have a working internet connection, so it's not because of the lack of internet, as far as I can tell.

OpenSUSE :: Miro In 11.2 KDE - Bouncing Logo Then Nothing - GError: Failed To Contact Configuration Server
I have just recently switched from Gnome to KDE in 11.2 since there was some sort of major KDE update that fixed the issues I had been having with KDE. Ever since, I have not been able to get miro to load. I try to run it and all I get is the bouncing logo, then nothing. When I try to run Miro in terminal, I get this:

solomon@linux-yz7i:~> miro

And it will sit there for eternity or until I close the terminal window. When I run Miro as root, I get this:

Debian Configuration :: Dropbox Install For Debian Squeeze From Source Code
how to install Dropbox for Debian Squeeze from source.Please read everything before you begin. I prepared it as I installed Dropbox for my own system. Please Note: I use sudo, you may have to use root or 'su' from the command line. If you don't know the difference between sudo and su, then you shouldn't try this until you know. At the time I did this, the lastest dropbox version was 0.6.7.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze Compiling Dwm From Debian Source / Reality Check
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze

apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring
apt-get build-dep dwm

It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!

Debian :: Radeon Xpress 200 Problem On Debian Squeeze - Kernel 2.6.30
After dist-upgrade a few days ago, X refuses to kick in.

Xorg.0.log reads


Fatal server error:

no screens found

Please consult the The X.Org Foundation support at

Please also check the log file at "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" for additional information. lshw reads that Xpress 200M is claimed by radeonfb driver.

At this moment, no fglrx packages are installed.

System is Toshiba laptop.

I do not think ATI dropped support, however, even without fglrx, nothing works.

Debian :: Installing Command Line Debian Squeeze System On Eee PC 701
I have been trying to install a command line Debian Squeeze system on n Eee PC 701., but have run into a number of problems:

1) All install info I can find assumes that the person wants to install a GUI system of some sort.
2) The Eee PC has a unique 2 MB. partition that needs to be preserved, so no guided install.
3) The Eee PC has an SSD instead of an HD. Most postings I have seen recommend an install without a swap partition, but the install (both live and text) seems to choke and despite a fresh formatting of the existing partition, claims to be overwriting existing files.
4) I can understand from the wiki that the Eee PC wireless driver (Atheros) should be included in Squeeze, but when the wireless connection and password is added, the installer claims that the password is not correct, despite me having checked it a number of times.

I hope someone can help me out. I just want to use the Eee PC for low resource stuff done on the cli like using a text based web browser to access the net through a wireless router and to hook it up to an external USB HD and to my stereo, to play my music collection.

Debian :: Debian Squeeze / Gnome Icon Themes Don't Change
I installed Debian Squeeze with Gnome today. I'm unable to change from the default icon theme. I can change themes, but the icon theme remains default.Things I've tried:

- I've made a new user account.

- .gtkrc-2.0 in my home is auto-generated, .gtkrc.mine does not exist.

# -- THEME AUTO-WRITTEN DO NOT EDIT include "/usr/share/themes/Darklooks/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" include "/home/haunted/.gtkrc.mine"


- I've tried installing a theme into my /home/.themes.

- I've reinstalled gnome-settings-daemon.

- Tried changing themes then doing a full reboot.

- Cursed it periodically.

Debian :: Installing Latest Nvidia Driver On Debian Squeeze ?
I installed Debian Squeeze with no issues. I went to install latest Nvidia driver as done previously with Lenny. Used instructions that worked on lenny from "the trooper" [url]

Downloaded th latest driver for my GeForce 7300 GS vidio card, driver package

Used "method # 2 as described in HOW TO,as it worked perfectly in the past on Lenny. Only syntax I changed was instead of gdm I typed gdm3 as it appears that is the new name for gnome in Squeeze.

Did as folows:

Now the trouble showed up, Unfortunatly I can only go off my memory. A question was asked stating that something did not match, it needed a 3 and the driver had a 4 version or somethng of this sort. then it asked if I new what I was doing (and I lied) and selected yes. And whammo, it didn't work. (This question was asked when i did in Lenny and it is working perfectly still on that system). I now can not boot to GUI, I notice when system boots it starts in "S" mode although I select normal boot from grub2.

Not too bad if I got to reinstall as little is on the system. I just want to know what I am missing on the instalation deal or should I be going about this difrently with Squeeze.

(warning)"I can run the gui manually and still same message.

Debian Installation ::Can Only Get To Command Prompt With Debian Squeeze
Debian Lenny worked just great. That was my first experience of Debian. The installer recognised all my hardware and the system was soon up and running brilliantly with a few tweaks. Confident of Debian's reliability, I decided to move to Debian 6 and did a fresh install, with downloads of the new operating system rather than a distribution upgrade. The installation routines have not worked for the same computer system. I don't know if its hardware not being recognised by Debian 6 that were recognised without a problem by Debian 5??

At first, the boot-up flipped at "Waiting for /dev to be fully populated," there was a kernal panic then Debian disappeared. No signal was sent to the monitor and I had to switch off the computer manually
I was able to look into the Debian 6 OS from Arch Linux, installed on different partitions of the same hard-drive. I am able to overwrite the Debian files as root from Arch.
My i686 machine has PATA IDE drives.

Why are 2) dbus and the 3) avahi-demon failing? I need to get them started first so that I can get an internet connection and try and correct the problem with X and the wrong Nvidia driver. Is there some configuration I can do either from Arch, where I am now, or the bash prompt on Debian? Thanks in advance.
