Fedora :: Volume Keyboard Shortcuts Not Working Properly
Aug 1, 2009
I just installed F11 on my new laptop (Acer Timeline 3810T) and I have the following issue when adjusting volume. The keyboard shortcuts work, but they don't raise/lower the volume smoothly, instead they do it in 4 or 5 increments total. What's weird is that the notification that appears in the screen when I adjust the volume (the whitish square with a picture of a speaker, I think it's part of Compiz) shows the the volume changing in small increments, but when I get to the 3rd or 4th little increment from the right the volume is already muted. If I look at the alsa volume controls at the same time, I see it changing by the 4 or 5 big increments.
I had problems getting sound working on a new install of 9.10, and eventually got it working by going to gnome alsa mixer and increasing Master F which was near 0%.Sound works now, but the fn+F10/F11 (volume up/down) keyboard shortcuts which show volume increasing and decreasing in sound preferences have no effect on the volume.How can I get these shortcuts working again?
I am having issues with Fedora 11 and audio. I have pulse audio running and configured. The volume control on the top panel (GDE) works properly, but i do not hear any volume until I move it up past 50%. I tested it with the advanced volume controls opened and it even shows the master volume not moving until the volume slider on the panel reaches at least 50%. Can anybody help with fixing this. It is very annoying. Thanks in advance for the support.
I've had this problem since I fresh installed Fedora on my laptop: I can play sounds fine, but I can't mute/make it louder or softer. I couple days ago (right after I installed) there was a notification saying there was an error with something in the sound and it was "falling back to default". Recently, the notification stopped popping up but the problem persists.
I'm not 100% positive as to what type of speakers my laptop has. I know they're made by JBL, but on Windows they're handled by "RealTek HD Audio Manager" and in Device Manager there's 2 different audio devices: Realtek High Definition Audio and ATI HDMI Audio. Neither of them say they're JBL brand. The most information I can get out of the specs of my laptop found on Newegg is that they're "JBL stereo speakers (1.5 watt x 2)".
I don't think I could be much newer to Ubuntu (I only started using it properly an hour ago) and I'm having trouble with the keyboard shortcuts. Nothing happens when I press alt-f2 to run terminal, or ctrl-alt-tab to switch workspaces. I also cannot use the fn keys to dim the screen, change the volume etc
Has anyone had trouble getting their keybaord shortcuts to work? I have compiz running, which has introduced some minor quirks. When I'm in the KB Short Cuts gui interface, I cannot revert back to 'Disables'. Hitting the Backspace key takes me to the top of the page and does not revert to disabled? Gonna disable compiz and try again...
I have thinkpad sl510 and want to have keyboard shortcut "alt"+"y" to show me desktop. I added this shortcut in keyboard shortcuts, and added it also in compiz setups and it works till first reboot, but no matter what i do, after reboot this shortcut is not active any more. But in keyboard shortcuts it stays everything all right. Even in compiz setup. But they are not working...I have Ubuntu 10.04 64bit (Gnome)
I have recently noticed that my keyboard shortcuts stopped working.Things like F2 to rename files/folders, I think its ALT+F1 to bring up applications menu, however it comes up with a dialog saying Power Information. I also can not use backspace in FF to go back a page and things like that, which I find very annoying because I prefer to navigate with the keyboard and that deal.Yes I have Compiz installed however I have for a few months now without this problem which appeared only within the last fw days. I have had k at the keyboard shortcuts in Compiz and set them to default but nothing changed
This morning the keyboard shortcuts don't work ant longer; they worked yesterday. alt-tab doesn't switch among windows, alt-ctrl-t doesn't open the terminal etc. On the other hand, all usual shortcuts are OK in keyboard Shortcuts applet. It looks (to my poor intuition) there is something wrong with my usb keyboard recognition....
I'm running XFCE on slackware64-current. I've had this problem for a number of months now. Every so often, XFCE will decide to not recognize key combinations that are mapped to keyboard shortcuts. For example, hitting ALT+F2 will not bring up the xfrun4 dialog box. This happens to all of my keyboard shortcuts (e.g., volume keys).
For now, I've resorted to going into the keyboard shortcut settings and double-clicking on each assignment and then hitting ok. This seems to correct whatever corruption is occurring. What's even more unusual is that all of the settings appear to be intact in the settings box and even in the .xml file.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. All of a sudden several of my function keys stopped working and several keyboard shortcuts that I had setup involving function keys stopped working as well.
For example, when I go to preferences->keyboard shortcuts and try to set "Toggle fullscreen mode" to Alt+F11, the text "XF86AudioRaiseVolume" appears where it should just say "Alt+F11". Pressing Alt+F11 does nothing.
All of my function keys somehow got mapped to XF86AudioBlahBlah and no longer work. How do I undo this? I recently installed ffmpeg and gtk-recordmydesktop but I don't think I installed anything else.
I have a strange keyboard problem. If I enable keyboard repeat from system settings, every key press gets repeated no matter how fast I press the key. For example if I try to type the letter 'a' I get 'aaaaaaaaaaa'. Or if I type 'mouse' I get 'mouseeeeeeeeeeee'. I've tried different delay and rate options but that doesn't change the problem. If I disable keyboard repeat I can type normally, but it's very annoying when you can't for example delete characters quickly.
I've recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 and everything worked like a dream the first 10 days. Now I have to restart X to get my keyboard to work like it should. When I start the computer everything is fine until the login prompt where my password contains certain letters that don't work. To fix this I must use ctrl + alt + F1 and then start htop/top to find PID of X and kill it. This fixes the problem temporary but after next reboot I need to the same again...
1) Go to the above website using Firefox browser. Wait for "Done".2) Type the letters 'J', 'u', 's', 't', and ' ' in sequence.On my system (Fedora 13/32bit) the window scrolls several lines immediately after I key in the space character, just as if I had clicked on the gray area in the scroll bar.Why?I've had a similar thing happen several times (over the years) while writing replies in Yahoo mail but don't know what the key sequence was.he result, however, is that the Firefox browser window closes and I lose everything I've written.Shouldn't control keys HAVE to be pressed to initiate keyboard shortcuts?
I have a problem with my keyboard shortcuts. I go to System/preferences/keyboard shortcuts and then enable my "Open Terminal" command for ctrl+alt+t . Then it works. But whenever I restart, it never saves, and I have to do the whole process over again.
Does anyone know how to make custom keyboard shortcuts? The commands don't seem to cross over to the system>preferences>keyboard shortcuts utility. For example, I added the file browser to my desktop. I right click, select properties, and the command is:
However, when I add a custom shortcut with that same command it doesn't work.
I want to create a keyboared shortcut for creating new folder and so i use this command in gnome-kinbin : mkdir myfolder but it does not work but when i write:mkdir /home/user/myfolder it works correctly .
How i can say it to create the folder in the current directory of that is active in the current windows? and also what is the command for creating a file as .txt or .
I have a Acer keyboard (manufacter Lite-On) and seems like I can't get the keyboard shortcuts to work. The shortcuts that DO work are search, CD play/pause/tracks, and Volume.but.. shortcuts for Web browser, email and mute vol don't work. Tried to unplug-plug the keyboard (usb) used System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts disable then Enable still no-go This only happens in /home but when I login /root every shortcut works!Anybody know a posible solution/cause??I am using Fedora 11.
It is possible to set a keyboard shortcut to start an application in KDE? As example, win+f to start firefox. I know it is an option in menu editor, but it doesn't work. From the many distros I tried with KDE ( openSUSE, Arch, Gentoo, Mandriva ), only in Fedora 12 worked this option, and I hoped it will in F13 too, this is one of the reasons I installed Fedora. So it is a bug, regression, or I am doing things not the right way?
I've troubles with wireless keyboard and mouse on openSuse 11.3, XFCE. The keyboard is A4tech GL100 and mouse A4tech G7-630 working on 2.4 GHz. The mouse after few seconds of inactivity switches off and I have to click to bring it working again. The keyboard is set to CZ, but always after start automatically switched on ENG, I have to go to Yast and open keyboard setup and close even if the CZ is selected to force the CZ layout.
My keboard was working perfectly (backlight, inverse FN) until upgrade from karmic to lucid. Now neither backlight neither inverting FN (in pommed.conf) works- backlight is always off, FN is default OSX-like. Trackpad worked "almost superb" (missing click with one finger and drag with another!!) but after upgrade (=no mode udev) event number changes with every reboot so I cannot put configuration based on /dev/input/eventX to Xorg.conf. How can I make it have the same number after reboot now?
how can I change the language of the action labels shown in the Keyboard Shortcuts window? System language is set to English (United States), but the mentioned descriptions are displayed in Italian language.
Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.
This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update. I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?
Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1
In firefox, all shortcuts work, for example ctrl+c, ctrl+v, etc. But in Kate for example they do not, in konquerror the same. What could:confused it be? I added russian locale in System Settings->Country/Region&Language and now it works. (I ve got russian language in keyboard layouts).
