I have updated to 10.10 and now my ir remote is simulating keyboard arrow keys which is causing problems in applications like Boxee. The weird thing is if I stop lircd it still simulates the keyboard arrow keys.
Does anyone know how to stop the keyboard arrow keys from triggering when the ir remote up, down, left or right buttons are pressed?
(Here are all the IR config files)
Code: # /etc/lirc/hardware.conf # #Chosen Remote Control REMOTE="Streamzap PC Remote" REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev streamzap"
Two days ago, the down arrow cursor key quit working on my usb keyboard. I could go up, or left and right, but not down. I figured the key was broke and pulled out a PS/2 keyboard and plugged it in. Problem seemed to be solved.This morning, the down arrow cursor key again was not working. I thought that was a weird coincidence, so I plugged in the old usb keyboard, and the down arrow cursor key was again working!
I have dual boot (winxp) which has been working for over a year now.But for some reason recently, grub wont recognise the keyboards arrow keys. ie cant change menu selection. in fact it wont recognise keyboard at all it seems. Pressing enter wont work either. I have to wait for the timeout.
The arrows work before hand (like in bios settings) and after once ubuntu has booted. Just not in the grub menu
Its something to with the USB wireless keyboard. If i replace it for standard PS2 kybd it works.
Here's a weird one. Once in a while I inadvertantly hit the key combination RIGHT-ARROW + INSERT on my keyboard while editing in Geany. This stops my mouse buttons from working and I have to kill xorg. Anyone heard of this before or how to fix it? I know I know, I should stop hitting those keys by accident, but it seems to happen at least once a day! This is on Fedora 12.
I'm trying to run LKL (Linux Keyboard Logger) in a Ubuntu 9.04 VirtualBox VM (VirtualBox 2.2.2 running on a XP host). The package installs fine, but when I try to run it lkl -l -k /usr/share/lkl/keymaps/us_km -o ./kbd.log & it hogs the CPU usage to 50% and never logs a keystroke (in fact the kbd.log file is never created)
i first noticed it while running VLC when at least one of my keyboard hotkeys stopped working. I tried reassigning the key and then reinstalling the packages from SPM and it failed (using kow's ppa) then i did a clean uninstall and reinstall from A/R programs, which didnt fix anything. then later i had problems typing in firefox, specifically with the number pad (the hotkey i'm referring to is also part of the number pad) something makes me think it's my keyboard or keyboard driver, i've been keeping up with the updates for Jaunty, including the most recent kernel update.
I have a script that makes several calls to xmacroplay, which controls the keyboard and mouse. I would like to run this in the background or on a separate workspace or something so I can still use my machine for other things. I suspect this is possible but I don't really know what to look for.
i want to install a program called VMPK its a virtual keyboard, but through googling i seem to keep running in circles. The program comes as a tarball, which i have no idea how to install (still semi new to Linux... within my first 2 months)... i have read something about compiling it as an RPM but i cant seem to find anything else other than that... this is probably something super simple
I'm using rxvt-unicode version 9.06 at Ubuntu 9.10. I was used to aterm, where you can use SHIFT + up/down arrow to scroll the printed output with a line up or down. You can also use SHIFT + pgup/pgdown to scroll one screen up or down.In urxvt I can use the pgup/pgdown combination as well, but can't use the up/down arrow combination. It is very useful to be able to scroll by single lines. Do you have any idea how to enable the up/down arrow scrolling?
I've recently discovered a little problem with Firefox: if there are those multiple choice fields with arrows on the side on a webpage, I can click on the arrow but nothing shows up. Check the attached images to see what I mean, does anybody know where this comes from or how to get it to work properly again?
I'm working with Terminal (Mac OS X), but I think this is a built-in part of Linux. Sometimes, when I execute a command, Terminal returns a new, indented line with just -> on the line. It seems like it's waiting for something, but I don't know if it requires action on my part or not. Pressing enter simply returns another, identical line. When I Ctrl + C, it says Aborted, meaning something was clearly processing.
When using firefox, if I use my arrow keys in the keyboard to scroll through the Window, it works only if the mouse pointer is inside the window. Otherwise, the scroll doesn't work. Is there any way to solve this problem?
It's not just the arrow keys, even the TouchPad scroll on my laptop also.
This is a weird problem I am facing right now. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Firefox 3.6.3. The tab key, the arrow keys and the page down / up keys dont work anymore. They're working fine in any other application, like Chrome.
The keys were fine till yesterday and suddenly they have stopped responding.
How can I remap arrow keys to windows key + ijkl? I can do this easily in Autohotkey on windows, but I'm struggling on Ubuntu.
I'd really like the solution to work independently of whether I'm using a window manager or not, and to involve modifying as few files as possible; I work on a lots of different machines and am always building new ones, so would like to minimise reconfig effort.
I've tried to understand .Xmodmap, but couldn't make it work (was hard to find detailed docs on modifier keys). Am also considering win+hjkl!
I am used to hitting the left/right arrow keys to change pages when reading PDFs (using PDF X-Change Viewer on Windows). Can I do the same with Evince on Ubuntu? I don't see any preferences window..Fully updated Ubuntu 10.04 x86-64, Evince 2.30.3 here.
I am having a lot of problems with hitting the arrow keys while typing. At least, I think that's what it is. Maybe the page up/down/back buttons, too. Is there a way to disable one or more keys on the keyboard via software, other than going into BIOS? It's getting annoying having to retype stuff over and over. I guess maybe I'm just not used to my new keyboard, is all. But I never use those buttons and likely never will.
I have a logitech coreless keyboard that has always "just worked" and I've lived without programming any keys, no factory. no tumbleweed, recent fresh re-install of 11.4, updated generally and with kde 4.6.5, xorg 7.6, nvidia driver 275.21 Mysteriously, the down arrow key no longer works as it should, (up, left, right are fine)
Rather it has the effect of crashing the transparent task manager and adjusting the focus of open windows. If I repeatedly hit the down arrow key the focus toggles and then transparency is re-enabled. The best way I can describe the effect is that it is as if I were using [tab] to toggle through a text based menu (e.g., YaST launch in terminal mode)
I bought a fancy new keyboard a couple of weeks ago, a Logitech illuminated one, and it works great in openSuSE 11.2 . . . after it's booted up. It's a dual boot system, however, and today I needed to get into Windows to do some CAD work, and couldn't! That's when I discovered that the arrow keys didn't work in GRUB. It's the particular keyboard, because I can plug the old one in and the problem goes away. Both are USB keyboards. And it must have something to do with loading a keyboard driver of some sort prior to the GRUB screen, because the new keyboard works fine once the bootup is completed. In fact, I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and didn't notice a problem until today.
Recently did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.1. Great OS. One minor issue with the keyboard.
When playing games, both for Linux and through wine, the game will respond as if the up and left arrow keys are being constantly held down.
It acts like this in Cave Story (Linux version), Sonic Adventure DX Directors Cut: Demo A Version (Wine), and Star Trek Legacy (Wine).
This does not occur when using any non-game applications on my system, such as Open Office. This does not occur when using anything on the Internet, such as simply typing or Internet games.
Other Info, may or may not be helpful: Used ubuntu 8.04 previously, erased old ubuntu partition when upgrading. Arrow Keys responded fine for all applications listed above. Have a Microsoft Windows XP partition as well, only use it for applications that don't run in wine.
The other day I was practicing some of the famous Awk One-liners and noticed something interesting in the bash shell on ubuntu 9.04. Some specific awk commands would execute correctly but when I tried to use an up arrow to re-run the command that particular command was not present in my history. Is this an issue specific to me? specific to awk? Completely random?
