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..

Debian Multimedia :: VNC Doesn't Work Well With Many Jessie DEs

Dec 29, 2014

I'm trying out a Jessie install and have noticed VNC doesn't work as well as it used to. I often install a desktop environment on a headless machine, disable *dm, and use vnc4server to create a desktop session if I want to use a GUI. When I try to do the same on Jessie, I run into problems.

Using Gnome, all I get is the generic "Oops something went wrong" error. Looking at .xsession-errors, there are some errors that hint at the problem.

Code: Select allXsession: X session started for ryan at Mon Dec 29 06:07:30 CST 2014
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  109 (X_ChangeHosts)
  Value in failed request:  0x5
  Serial number of failed request:  6
  Current serial number in output stream:  8

[Code] ....

Some possibly related bugs: [URL] ...

The same thing seems to happen with Cinnamon. Since I doubt a fix for the above issue will make it into Jessie, I tried XFCE. However, that doesn't work correctly either. When running XFCE via VNC something is misreporting the version of xrandr as 1.1 instead of 1.4. Since xfsettingsd appears to want version 1.2+, many things are broken.

This post on the Ubuntu forums suggests the issue might be fixed in xfsettingsd version 4.11: [URL] .....

Is there a better way of getting a remote desktop in Jessie that I'm overlooking?

Debian Multimedia :: Japanese Input In Jessie Doesn't Seem To Work

Jan 19, 2014

I've tried installing both ibus-anthy and ibus-mozc in Jessie but I still cannot input Japanese.

By contrast, In Wheezy, when using anthy for example, I can see ibus preferences icon where I can configure ibus and anthy. This doesn't show up in Jessie.

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.

Debian Hardware :: Brother Label Printer QL 1060N Doesn't Work / Cut Under Jessie

Oct 8, 2015

I am trying to get the QL1060N to print and cut under Jessie.

I used the Ql1060N on wheezy (cups 1.5.3) with the standard Brother driver and the ptouch/foomatic driver of the QL550. They both worked out of the box.

Configuration for Brother QL1060N Driver:
Description:ql1060n
Location:
Driver:Brother QL-1060N CUPS v1.1 (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
Connection:socket://XXX:9100

[Code] ....

On Jessie (cups 1.7.5):
I first tried the standard Brother driver from here: [URL] ....It didn't work at all. When I print, Cups tells me that the job has been completed, even though nothing has been done. Sometimes I also got the error "job canceled, filter failed", but I can't reproduce this error...

The foomatic/ptouch driver for the QL550 prints like it did before, but doesn't cut the lables automatically like it used to in wheezy. (I'm using the same printing file/picture as in wheezy and also the same configuration.)

Debian Multimedia :: Jessie - LXDE Doesn't Shutdown Properly

May 19, 2015

I know the problem has been partly solved in this old thread [URL] .....

Now we have Jessie as stable, yet LXDE doesn't shutdown properly:

On the same computers, Wheezy LXDE shut down very fast

I installed Jessie from the netinstall image.

On a 2007 computer, it's like the old days with a Pentium II running some version of Puppy Linux or Slitaz. The system shuts down after a while but the computer remains on.

On a 2013 laptop, I added the line init=/bin/systemd in the Grub default file as advised on the old thread above. The laptop shuts down after a while, the system first, then the hard disk goes to sleep, then all the leds are off.

If I run the magic command, the computer shutdowns in a breeze, perhaps even quicker than good old Wheezy:

Code: Select all# systemctl poweroff

Now, is this still a systemd bug? Doesn't look like it since the systemctl command works. Is it an LXDE bug? Looks like it in a way - if the LXDE shutdown button enabled the systemctl poweroff command, I suppose the button would work?

Is there a way to make the LXDE shutdown button run the systemctl poweroff command?

I'm glad Wheezy is still with us because I wouldn't install Jessie for newbies — they'd think shutdown (through clicking on a button) is even worse than in Windows.

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia-settings Doesn't Save Across Reboots - Jessie 64bit

Dec 12, 2015

I had some issues with nvidia drivers, and removed all of the packages using

Code: Select allrm /etc/X11/xorg.conf and Code: Select allapt-get purge nvidia*

Upon reboot, I was back with nouveau drivers and proceeded to reinstall nvidia drivers according to [URL] .....

Code: Select allapt-get install nvidia-driver
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig
I can then change my refresh rate using
Code: Select allnvidia-settings
but when I hit "Save to X configuration file", I get the following output in terminal:
Code: Select allroot@debian:/home/anon# nvidia-settings
Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-server' found

As a result, my nvidia preferences aren't saved across reboot.

Here are all of my sources:

Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Multimedia Keys Doesn't Respond After Power Failure

Jul 23, 2014

Yesterday something has happened with power supply, so 2 of 3 PCs has shut down. And now my debian pc doesn't respond to multimedia (volume to be precise) keys, leds also doesn't work. Other keys are fine. Tried xev, but it doesn't respond to multimedia keys either. I have dual boot with Win7 on this machine, and it works fine with multimedia keys.

I believe this is a clue:

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.)

General :: Ssh Without A Password (setting Up Ssh Keys Doesn't Work)?

Mar 9, 2011

I want to ssh, scp, git fetch, etc. without a password. I saw the previous questions, and closed ones regarding this issue, but the suggestion seems to be to use ssh keys. However, after setting up ssh keys, I am still asked for my password (it's not asking for my private key password; it's asking for my login password). How am I supposed to set this up so that it only uses my private key for authentication?

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 Multimedia :: How To Have Volume Buttons On Laptop Change 'pcm' Channel Volume Rather Than 'master'?

Jun 13, 2010

I'm running squeeze (last updated today), and everything has been working great. There is only thing that would simplify my life minutely..Anybody know how can I have the volume buttons on my laptop change the "pcm" channel volume rather than "master"? If they could control pcm, then I could adjust the volume coming out of my headphones or my computer speaker (both controlled by pcm, but not master...seems strange to me) with just one click.I tried to find this info online, but all results seem to refer to an older version. The simple "click here, set this" solution no longer is possible.

Debian Multimedia :: Laptop Volume Buttons And GNOME Volume Are Not Synchronized

Debian Squeeze 6.0.0 on a Thinkpad T43, sound volume is not synchronized between the laptop volume buttons and GNOME's Volume Applet. So if I turn the volume all the way down with the physical buttons, the volume applet may still indicate 75%.I did not have this problem in Debian Lenny. Pressing the volume buttons used to show a volume bar on the screen, as did pressing the mute button.

Ubuntu :: Sound Doesn't Work And Can't Control The Volume

Jan 31, 2010

I bought a Toshiba Nb205 laptop with a Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02) inside. After I first got it I installed Ubuntu onto it, and that's where the problems started. After everything was installed I noticed that my sound doesn't work. So I looked everywhere. I tried so many solutions offered on these forums including messing around with Alsamixer and nothing seemed to be working. Then one day I luckily stumbled upon this website that directed me here: [URL] So I went there and picked the Linux 2.6(X86)(DEB) from the drop down list and installed it. I rebooted my machine, and I now had sound.

However, the only problem is that I can't control the volume of the sound. When I play something, it stays at one volume and one volume only. Nothing on sound preferences will work. The only way I can raise or lower the volume is if I do it in the application that I run, like if I am playing a ..... video, I have to use their volume control to control the volume. My master volume won't work at all.

Debian Multimedia :: 2560x1440 60Hz Doesn't Work Over HDMI On Testing

Aug 12, 2015

I just got a new Dell monitor (U2715H), and even with beta Nvidia driver (355.06) on Debian testing x86_64, it doesn't detect highest resolution (2560x1440) when connected over HDMI to Nvidia Geforce GT 620. I have an HDMI 2.0 compliant cable, and according to Dell reps, the monitor should support 2560x1440 over HDMI.

Some suggested using xrandr to set the video mode explicitly. I tried doing it, and first got a EDID file with nvidia-settings, and run edid-decode. Where is what I got there:

Code: Select allDetailed mode: Clock 241.500 MHz, 597 mm x 336 mm
               2560 2608 2640 2720 hborder 0
               1440 1443 1448 1481 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync

So I used those values to make a new mode in xrandr:

Code: Select allxrandr --newmode "2560x1440_60.00"  241.50  2560 2608 2640 2720  1440 1443 1448 1481 +hsync -vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI-0 "2560x1440_60.00"

But I got this error:

Code: Select allX Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  18 (RRAddOutputMode)
