I have a Dell 1525 and I just installed Ubuntu on it. The Multimedia keys (previous, stop, play/pause, next) and volume control keys (mute, increase, decrease) buttons aren't working at all. Is there anyway I can get them to work?
After a system update a couple of days back - which as far as I can remember included some xorg packages - neither of the policy files I have written for my keyboard, synaptics touchpad and mouse work.Below are the files and the Xorg log file.
I need help in getting Skype to work with Debian Squeeze.The problem is that there's no 64 bit version of Skype for Debian Squeeze and the other versions (Skype static and Skype Ubuntu 64 bit) makes Skype crash after login. Is it possible to get the 32bit version of Skype working with Debian Squeeze and how about other solutions?
I'm at the tail end of my upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and I think this sound issue is the last one I have. As usual I've tried hunting for some answers but it gets very confusing when people are using KDE or PulseAudio or Ubuntu or slightly different configuration to what I have.
My config: Debian Squeeze 2.6.32 Alsa (just because I was using that in Lenny and it was working, no other reason) Gnome Rhythmbox Skype
Skype is pretty good - it has the sound configuration built in, so I say ring the speakers and it does. I say talk to the headset and it does. Rhythmbox is my music player (again just because I was using it under Lenny) however it only wants to play through the headset. I can't seem to get it to play to the speakers attached to the rear port.

I've just installed Squeeze 6.01a from the xfce iso image on an old PIII which has been running Lenny with xfce without any problems. It's a fresh install after a reformat.
Sounds and multimedia apps like gxine and mplayer all worked fine on Lenny and other older versions. Now they don't - not gxine, not mplayer not even VLC. Run from the menu they all abort - and if run in an xterm they all crash with the following message -
Assertion 'pthread_mutex_unlock(&m->mutex) == 0' failed at pulsecore/mutex-posix.c:108, function pa_mutex_unlock(). Aborting.
On my Acer Aspire Laptop I'm running Slackware 13.1 (current) with GSB 2.30 + Compiz. I got everything working in both KDE & Gnome. I really like that I can use KDE apps and Gnome apps together. Only, one thing I can't get to work. My volume up/down/mute keys in Gnome. In KDE they work!After a few days searching I found that to make them work in Gnome, I have to load Kmix. So my conclusion is that the actions on the XF86Audio (Raise/Lower/Mute) keys are linked to Kmix. How do I change this? I want to use the Gnome mixer in....Gnome and Kmix in ....KDE
I have a Logitech K830 wireless 'Living Room' keyboard for general use under Debian/Gnome. The function keys (F1-F12) operate in conjunction with the FN key. Various multimedia options are alternately available by pressing the function keys (F1-F12) without the FN key.
I want to make the function keys primary (not requiring FN). 'xmodmap -e "keycode 172 = F11"' reassigns F11 as expected, but xev reveals multicode output for some keys that I cannot similarly remap. The (de-tabulated) table shows xev output for press-events. Single F(n) keycodes are followed by the equivalent multimedia keycodes (e.g. F2[+FN] key is also 'Minimize window'[without FN]).
KEY STATEKEYCODE KEYSYM
FN+F1 0x0167 0xffbe, F1 Adjust backlight ---- -- ------, --
After installing Debian 8.2 I tested my multimedia keys and they all are correctly detected by xev and works as expected. Then I start to configure my keyboard. I need to use three keyboard layouts EN, UA and RU. By default I can switch between them using selected keyboard shortcut with following pattern: en→ua→ru→en→ua... But I want to switch layouts independently, using different keys for each layout, for example: qWCapsLock — enable EN layoutShift+CapsLock — enable UA layoutCtrl+CapsLock — enable RU layoutAfter googling and reading different forums I come to following solution (here is documents and discussion in russian). Create files
This works perfectly, but all multimedia keys now not recognized by xev and as result they does not work. I know that I can use xmodmap to map keys, but maybe same result can be achieved by fixing some of the newly created files or setxkbmap+xkbcomp command listed above.
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.
Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.
So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)
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:
Code: Select all[ 22.324109] generic-usb: probe of 0003:04D9:1702.0004 failed with error -110
I have successful installed debian squeeze 32bit on my pc. I like very much The vlc i have installed via software but After install vlc don't start don't appear don't do nothing any one know there is a problem with Vlc On squeeze?
Recently I installed Debian Squeeze - 2.6.32-5-686 but I found problem with my TV OUT again. Before I had the same problem but I found decision here with this patch and everything was OK. Now I have the same problem with new NVIDIA driver (275.09.07) and Debian Squeeze. I tried older drivers but nothing. My video card i NVIDIA - 9500GT.
Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze
su apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring apt-get build-dep dwm exit
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!
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
After unsuccessfully trying to install some updates on my debian squeeze system, I can no longer login to gnome when I restart the system. I've tried logging in both as root and as user and have typed in 'startx' or 'gnome-session' at the prompt but I get an error message "**(gnome-session:12020): WARNING **: Cannot open display:". I've searched the web for solutions but nothing works. I've had my debian squeeze for over three years now with no issues.
I blacklisted the pcspkr module on my system(rebooted and confirmed it no longer loads). The majority of annoying beeps are now gone. I have 2 instances where it still beeps though. Whenever GNOME first starts(before I login though) and if i am in GNOME at a terminal and type reboot. Any thoughts on disabling this?
On a fresh install of squeeze, I can't log in to an AIM account with being immediately disconnected and given this error: You have been connecting and disconnecting too frequently. Wait ten minutes and try again. If you continue to try, you will need to wait even longer.
I waited for several hours before trying to reconnect, but got the same message. Searching for the error led me to some bug reports from upwards of three years ago.
Strangely, this error hasn't occurred on any of my other squeeze systems.
I can ping login.oscar.aol.com as well as login.messaging.aol.com; both resolve to 184.108.40.206 for me. I tried changing the "Server" under "Advanced" to this address, but again I got the same error.
I think i came across a bug in X server in squeeze. I would report it to the bug tracking system in debian packages but the think is I am not entierly sure about it.When i start X (whether it is through startx or service gdm start or auto startup through init when the pc boots) the computer PC seems to lock up.The screen goes black right after X initializes and before anything is show in the screen and if i wait a about 10 minutes the monitor either goes in standby or out of range. PC seems unresponsive to both keyboard commands and mouse but my LCD screen in my G15shows the time skips 1 sec every 2 sec (from 19:22:22 goes straight to 19:22:24).
I have a custom 2.6.33 kernel which i build but it happens with both 2.6.32-trunk and 2.6.32-3 offical kernels from the squeeze repository so i dont think that this is the problem.My PC is a P4 3.75Ghz with 2Gb RAM and an NVidia 6800GT with the binary drivers from nvidia. I have tried diffrent versions from my grapgics drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.25-pkg1.run & NVIDIA-Linux-x86-195.36.15-pkg1.run) with no change in the behaviouThis is the syslog from the time my pc started and then "stuck". I left it for some time before i hard reset it
