Debian Hardware :: SANE Not Working After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Sep 6, 2011

My setup is an HP OfficeJet 4315 All-in-one on a Debian box with the clients using XSANE on Windows boxes.

After upgrading to Squeeze, none of the clients could see the scanner.root could see the scanner from the Debian box.non-root users could not see the scanner from the Debian box.

Obviously, something was wrong with the permissions. After a lot of digging, I found that the /dev entry for the 4315 was owned by root.lp with no world write access.

My solution was to add the saned account to the lp group. I figured that was the most security-conscious way to fix it.

The remote clients can now see the scanner, so everyone is happy.

This may not work for every installation, but for all-in-ones, it probably will.

Debian Hardware :: Non Functional Touchpad In Squeeze?

Nov 6, 2010

I am very eager to get two-finger scrolling in my acer 5740, but the big issue is my touchpad is not fully functional

"xinput llist" already detects the touchpad as
SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad id=12 [slave pointer (2)]
The xorg log shows dual loading of touchpad driver
(**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"
(**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "touchpad catchall"


But still after completely removing the xorg log and restarting the X, the log reports as

(**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "evdev touchpad catchall"
(**) SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad: Applying InputClass "touchpad catchall"

"synclient -l" though shows a long list of already set values, the touchpad is not working properly. How can I prevent this dual loading of drivers ? Kindly enlighten me , so that I can have a properly working touchpad. If any more info is required, then please ask me. There is no xorg.conf. I tried to generate one by "Xorg :1 -configure", but the generated file did not have any section related to touchpad.

Debian :: Upgrading The Squeeze To Wheezy?

Jul 12, 2011

My Squeeze version is extension three and I had it loaded on my Seagate 1 TB SATA drive. Extension three Squeeze is still on the SATA drive. I loaded Wheezy on my 80 GB Western Digital IDE setup up as a master with my Plextor IDE CD/DVD ROM setup as the slave drive.

Squeeze on my version was LXDE and Wheezy on my version is Gnome gdm3. My Squeeze was loaded with Lilo 22.8 and my Wheezy worked with the regular bootloader. I am just wondering if I use Disk Utility to delete the extension three of Squeeze if it will make both versions unusable.

Debian :: Switch To Apt-get After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Apr 29, 2011

I'm running Lenny, and I've always used aptitude. The upgrade instructions on Debian's website say that apt-get is preferred for doing the upgrade to Squeeze, and also says that apt-get now provides equivalent functionality. So is there any reason to continue to use aptitude after upgrading to Squeeze, and if so, will there be any problems caused by having used apt-get for the upgrade? Or will there be problems caused by switching to apt-get after using aptitude before the upgrade?

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound After Upgrading To Squeeze?

Nov 26, 2010

since I'm new to the the forum and this is my first post I'd like to discuss a quite weird issue. Specifically, after upgrading my Debian system to Squeeze a few days ago, sound is completely lost. This means that I cannot hear any sound from anywhere (mp3, streming videos or anything else) except the system bell . I've done a research on the Internet, looking in other forums and discussions but still, nothing works for me. To begin with, I'm running Squeeze in an HP laptop with HDA Intel soundcard and chipset ALC268. When I'm running aplay -l I get this message:

Darkstar:~# aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog]

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound In Squeeze After Upgrading Packages?

Feb 24, 2011

I had a broken URL in my /etc/apt/sources.list file, apparently because the site had some kind of server issue and they had to rebuild the site from the ground up. They must have changed their directory structure, because I began getting 404 Errors when upgrading packages. I eventually fixed the URL last week after it had been broken for three months, then I upgraded and rebooted. After that, sound stopped working, even system sounds. My speakers work, because I plugged them into another machine and they worked. I eventually discovered that the master volume was set to "mute", and so was the master volume in the alsamixer. However, even after changing it to 100% for both, sound still doesn't work. I even made sure to issue a "alsactl -store" command toeep the settings there after a reboot. I removed and reinstalled all the alsa and pulse audio packages, made sure that the emu10k1 driver was installed for my Soundblaster Audigy card, and made sure everything was unmuted. I have also tried a million other things that I've found on Google, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Debian :: After Upgrading To Squeeze - Can't Mount My HDD Partitions Anymore

Oct 23, 2010

Actually, the /root- filesystem still gets mounted, for all the others I get the following message:

When I type

I get:

But this only happens when using my custom kernel ( When I use the kernel which was automatically installed (2.6.32-5-amd64), the problem doesn't occur.

Is there a kernel option I should have turned on?

I checked the UUID-numbers from the error messages with the output of "blkid" - they match. The rootfs is on sda2 (which gets mounted without error) - so I tried applying the fstab mount options of sda2 to the other partitions - same problem still. what makes the root partition so special? Is it because it's defined by grub.cfg?

Debian :: Openssh-server Auto Configuration Fails When Upgrading Lenny To Squeeze?

Sep 10, 2010

I'm in need of a bit of assistance from you Debian users. I have two servers that I thought were identical installations, both running Debian Lenny. Tonight I started the upgrade to Squeeze on both servers and one of them went smooth. The other one started out good but fails on the postconfiguration of openssh-server. I'm getting the following message:

Setting up openssh-server (1:5.5p1-4) ...
Auto configuration failed
2524:error:0E079065:configuration file routines:DEF_LOAD_BIO:missing equal sign:conf_def.c:366:line 67
invoke-rc.d: initscript ssh, action "restart" failed.


It looks like there's an error in one of the files in openssh-server that prohibits it from installing correctly. However on the other server it all went well.

Ubuntu :: Touchpad Stops Working After Pressing The Touchpad Toggle Button

May 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx LTS. My laptop is an HP Pavilion TX1210AU (TX1000 series). After disabling the touchpad using the toggle button and reenabling it again, it stopped working. I tried restarting my laptop and the mouse worked again only up to the Login Screen. After logging in to my account, the mouse froze again. I tried making a new account and tried logging into it (I'm using it now) and it's now fixed. Does Ubuntu change any user settings everytime the touchpad toggle (on/off) button is switched? Maybe I could just reenable it myself.

Debian :: Touchpad Enable / Disable Key Not Working

Nov 27, 2010

Since last Saturday (11-20) my touchpad enable/disable key stopped working.I don't make much use of the touchpad and it usually stays disabled most of the time so I can't be sure it is really on Saturday that I lost this functionality or maybe the day before (I'm positive it's not longer than that).Before that it worked flawlessly, now it's like a dead key (which is not broken by the way, tested on a live CD).In these past week I have been looking for quite some time for other users who might have experienced this problem after the update of two specific packages (console-data and keyboard-configuration) I had on the 20th and which made me think might have broken the key binding.Not finding anything at all and after having tried for said packages both newer versions from sid and previous known-to-have-worked-before versions from the install CD, I started thinking the problem was not there (I consequently restored the testing ones).

The days before this happened I tinkered a little bit with gpointing-device-settings and tpconfig (this last one was a simple tpconfig -i), but at this point I start thinking there might have been something else I've done, somewhere else I can't recall probably.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the touchpad still works flawlessly, I can enable/disable it through gconf (actually I made two handy shortcut to the "/desktop/gnome/peripherals/touchpad/touchpad_enabled" value), so it is not an issue of making it work, just the toggle key which on my laptop is a dedicated one (no Fn modifier) and anyway all the other special keys still work fine.I checked gnome-keybinding-properties and there is no action for the touchpad there, but I don't know for sure if there was one before (and I haven't been able to add one). Anyway in gconf I noticed a key in "/apps/gnome_settings_daemon/keybindings/touchpad" has the value "XF86TouchpadToggle", not sure if that means the keybinding exists or what.

What more can I add? What I'm here to ask now is some guidance on figuring out what I might have done wrong considering what I was able to tell you, but mostly, considering what I wasn't able to tell you and am not even aware to have done.

Install Debian Squeeze onto Thinkpad T410. Got the basic things working and noticed that - movement of touchpad results in moving of mouse pointer, which is correct, but - tapping on the touchpad does not simulate a click action. Confirmed that the touchpad hardware is working by booting into a CrunchBang LiveCD. how I can enable the touchpad tapping action?

Debian Hardware :: Synaptics Touchpad Simply Not Working?

May 26, 2015

I recently installed Debian with the Xfce desktop environment on my Toshiba Satellite laptop and my Synaptics touchpad simply does not work. In fact, it was not even working in the Debian graphical installation.

I verified that the touchpad is enabled by going to Applications --> Settings --> Mouse and Touchpad. I also verified that I had the requisite drivers by running Code: Select allsudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. Finally, /var/log/Xorg.0.log did not reveal anything unusual, though the output is quite long and was difficult to navigate. Here is the output of Code:

Select allcat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep Synaptics:

Code: Select all[   464.205] (II) config/udev: Adding input device SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad (/dev/input/event15)

Debian Hardware :: SYnaptics Touchpad - Tapping Not Working

Mar 27, 2011

Since when I installed Debian, I couldn't manage to make the tapping function of this touchpad work on my laptop - a Dell Latitude C610, with Debian squeeze. As suggested on [URL], I created a xorg.conf file with

Xorg :1 -configure

After that, I opened the file for editing it. There was no line regarding the Touchpad. The closest to that I found was

Section "InputDevice"
Identifier "Mouse0"
Driver "mouse"
Option "Protocol" "auto"
Option "Device" "/dev/input/mice"
Option "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

I tried adding the lines on [URL] ... C_Xorg_7.5 to the file, but it didn't work. I also tried installing gsynaptics but, even though the tapping function was enabled there, it didn't work. A weird fact is that vertical scrolling with two finger touch is working, but not tapping.

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 :: 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 Hardware :: Touchpad Not Working During Install - Delay After Typing

Feb 24, 2016

The first might be a libinput issue (I believe it's new within the last year or so): After typing, two-finger scrolling does not work until a delay of what seems to be a full second or more has passed. It's not a movement threshold issue, since wild movements don't fix the issue, nor is this delay experienced without first typing.

Note that moving the pointer and clicking with the touchpad work immediately after typing. Only two-finger scrolling seems to be delayed.

The second issue is that the touchpad does not function whatsoever during installation. Using the graphical installer, I have to rely entirely on the keyboard to navigate.

Output of lspci:

Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller (rev 09)
    Subsystem: Dell Haswell-ULT DRAM Controller
    Kernel driver in use: hsw_uncore

Debian Hardware :: Acer Aspire One - Synaptics Touchpad Not Working At All?

Apr 1, 2011

I tried to create an xorg.conf because I didn't have one already. I put the configuration for the synaptics touchpad in it and in the gnome preferences/mouse my touchpad actually was recognized by its name. But still it didn't work :/ I tried deleting my xorg.conf and making a xorg.conf.d directory with synaptics.conf because I saw someone recommend it in another thread. But now the gnome/mouse settings doesn't see it and it still doesn't work. I've read several threads from Arch Linux's forums saying it may be that the module is loaded twice, but I really have no idea.

Here's the /proc/bus/input/devices:

I: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0007 Version=01b1
N: Name="SynPS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Touchpad Not Working?

I run Windows 7 (Boo! Hiss!) on my netbook (HP Mini 311c), and I would like to dual boot with Ubuntu. Not the netbook remix, as I just don't like it.

I created a bootable USB with unetbootin, out of the iso, and loaded up. It all loaded fine, except for the fact that the touchpad didn't work. I had to ctrl+alt+del to shut down. What could be causing this?

General :: Can't Adjust Touchpad After Upgrading From Ubuntu 8.1 To 9.1

Dec 1, 2010

I just upgraded from Ubuntu 8.1 to 9.1. Selecting (tapping) with the touchpad is a problem. I can not adjust it with the System > Preferences > Touchpad GUI. I have to tap and tap and tap, harder and harder. The sensitivity is way off. Can't adjust it with the GUI.

Anyone else have this issue. I'm using a Dell Inspiron.

More info: sometimes I tap and it works. Other times I have to tap tap tap tap, harder and harder. I believe it's a matter of adjusting the sensitivity of the touchpad, but do not know how to do this after upgrading to 9.1.

Can't do it with the GUI.
