I just spent a few days ripping out all the broken/buggy apps that are in the opensuse 11.2 official repos so I can finally get working software(openoffice, thunderbird, wine, eclipse, rubygems, rails, and a few others required getting the "official" versions from their respective websites to avoid strange behavior and outright broken functionality).
All of which makes updating more annoying and time-consuming. Why are opensuse packages so different anyway? Anyway, the last thing that I have noticed to fix is Konsole. For some really bizarre reason ctrl+z and ctrl+c do not work without a third keystroke: enter.Maybe this is something new with the KDE team, since they seem bent on making simple things that already work more complex, but given my experience with crappy packages in the suse repos, I am thinking this is the problem. I have looked over all the config settings that I can find and nothing fixes this affront to productivity.
I*am using Kubuntu 10.04. I would like to change some of the standard shortcut keys for bash (terminal).
Ctrl-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Ctrl-V to paste from the clipboard into the terminal. Ctrl-Z to undo. Ctrl-Shift-C (or even better, Super-C) to terminate the command. Ctrl-Shift-Z (or Super-Z) to be the background command. I*don't even know what Ctrl-V did before, some I*won't worry about remapping it.
EDIT:*I*have no idea what is putting the * char after each "I". Maybe this is a non-breaking space?
I am doing a project on rdesktop. My aim is to setup a write/copy protected session. I have made rdesktop connection between two Linux machines using Xrdp.Next I want to disable the ctrl+x,ctrl+v keys and the cut and copy option in mouse right click at client side
NOTE: compizconfig manager is not suitable for ubuntu 11.04 with unity,works fine with 9.10 and 10.10.
Ubuntu enables "Desktop Wall" by default. By holding Ctrl-Alt keys and pressing the left-arrow or right-arrow key each time, it slides through desktop workspaces horizontally for you to choose one to work on. Alternatively, you can change this to a "rotate cube" effect. Go To System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager.
Select "Desktop" from the left panel. Tick "Rotate Cube". Select "Enable Desktop Cube" as this plugin is required by "Rotate Cube". Select "Disable Desktop Wall".
Immediately you can rotate your desktop workspaces in this way holding down Ctrl-Alt keys, EITHER press the left-arrow or right-arrow key OR left-click the mouse and drag it to left or right.
if there is no compiz manager in your system,download it.. type :sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager ..
I am using opensuse 11.2 on my dell studio 14 laptop and to my surprise the key combination for bringing up text based console does not function as expected.when I press ctrl+alt+ fn keys I am greeted with a blank screen and ctrl+alt+F7 brings me back to the GUI plasma desktop.Does this have to do something with the acpi=off thing I did for booting successfully into linux ( without this option, the screen would go off and not respond to anything ... physical restart was the only option). although my system starts off without any fuss, OS does not detect the battery of my laptop.
So Ive had this issue off and on for a while now, but have never really looked to see if others have had it or how I can fix it. Essentially the problem is that kde seems to randomly decide that I am holding down the shift or ctrl key.Im using a logitech cordless desktop s510, running openSUSE 11.3 x86_64. Ive had this problem on and off using a couple of different logitech keyboards. The most often time when it happens with the shift key is when im coding, and the control key when Im running a keyboard shortcut.
I can usually fix the issue by holding down the key that kde thinks is pressed for like 5-10 seconds and releasing, however sometimes I have to unplug and then replug in the usb adapter for kde to get things right. This doesnt happen if im running a non-graphical terminal (thouhg I cant say whether it happens in gnome as I dont have gnome installed) so I am thinking its related to kde. The keyboard can be plugged into other computers and they dont act the same way.
This gets esspecially annoying when Im coding (because of all the symbols) and generally when the issue occurs. I think it may have something to do with the key being pressed for over a certain length.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10, with KDE 4.5.2, what I've noticed is every so often my Tab, Caps, Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Super keys stop working. I'd been running Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome and hadn't ever come across this issue. I'm not sure if this is related to KDE 4.5.2 or is possibly because I updated to 10.10 and would also occur on a Gnome environment.If I switch to my virtual machine (VMWare Workstation 7.1.2 build-301548 which I was able to get working on 10.10 using URL.... the keys work within that but if I switch back to my host desktop they stop working.To fix it I've found logging out or unplugging the keyboard and plugging it into a different USB port fixes it.
I recently switched from Windows XP to stable Debian w/KDE on my work dell B120 laptop. I have been trying to diagnose freezes. In the evenings I have been leaving an SSH connection to my home computer. I leave a command running that writes the current time to a file every ten minutes. The past two nights it has stopped writing the time after a couple hours (not at the exact same time), and I am no longer able to ssh from my home computer to my work computer.
When I get back to work, the work laptop is frozen. CTRL+Alt+Backspace does not help, neither does CTRL+ALT+F1. Ctrl+Alt+SysRq works sometimes. It has not yet frozen while I have been present.
I tried disabling the screen saver and monitor power controls in KDE, thinking that those only come on when I am away, so they might be the cause. But it did not help.
I took the last time recorded by my ssh connection and looked through the logs trying to find something that happened at that time, but the only event occuring around the time the SSH connection dropped was a chron job that runs every hour. As far as I can tell, the chron job does not actually do anything but write to the log each hour.
So obviously I need to post more information. What would be helpful? Which log or configuration files might contain clues?
I see these lines in my logs: kernel: Kernel logging (proc) stopped. imklog 3.18.6, log source = /proc/kmsg started.
It appears at 6:25 AM each day between when the SSH connection drops and when I arrive in the morning. Do I need to restart logging?
I'm running Debian (both Sarge and Lenny, on different systems) under Gnome and have a number of thin client workstations that connect to a software application on an AIX server. I'm using gnome-terminal to provide terminal emulation for this software. Unfortunately, the emulation leaves something to be desired, and doesn't catch all of the F keys properly. It seems F1-F4 act as some form of escape key, exiting out of the software back to the command line, when they should be performing different functions in the software. F5 and F6 work as they should in the emulation. Is there a setting I can apply to my gnome-terminal launcher that will make this behave like it I want? The terminal should ideally match the behavior of a Link MC5 terminal (we have some of these old beasts still around, still crunching away), but alas, I don't know how to implement this.
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?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. I downloaded the package and am following this guide: http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-ins...on-ubuntu-9.04
While I'm running through the installation wizard via the terminal, i hit an error at this step:
None of the pre-built vmmon modules for VMware Server is suitable for your running kernel. Do you want this program to try to build the vmmon module for your system (you need to have a C compiler installed on your system)? [yes] code...
I've setup the .ssh/authorized_keys and am able to login with the new "user" using the pub/private key ... I have also added "user" to the sudoers list ... the problem I have now is when I try to execute a sudo command, something simple like:
$ sudo cd /root
it will prompt me for my password, which I enter, but it doesn't work (I am using the private key password I set)Also, ive disabled the users password using
$ passwd -l user
I am trying to harden my system ... the ultimate goal is to use pub/private keys to do logins versus simple password authentication. I've figured out how to set all that up via the authorized_keys file.Additionally I will ultimately prevent server logins through the root account. But before I do that I need sudo to work for a second user (the user which I will be login into the system with all the time).
For this second user I want to prevent regular password logins and force only pub/private key logins, if I don't lock the user via" passwd -l user ... then if i dont use a key, i can still get into the server with a regular password.But more importantly I need to get sudo to work with a pub/private key setup with a user whos had his/her password disabled.
1) I've adjusted /etc/ssh/sshd_config and set PasswordAuthentication no This will prevent ssh password logins (be sure to have a working public/private key setup prior to doing this
2) I've adjusted the sudoers list visudo and added
root ALL=(ALL) ALL dimas ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
3) root is the only user account that will have a password, I am testing with two user accounts "dimas" and "sherry" which do not have a password set (passwords are blank, passwd -d user)
The above essentially prevents everyone from logging into the system with passwords (a public/private key must be setup). Additionally users in the sudoers list have admin abilities. They can also su to different accounts. So basically "dimas" can sudo su sherry, however "dimas can NOT do su sherry. Similarly any user NOT in the sudoers list can NOT do su user or sudo su user.
this may not be the right place to ask this, but my sister has a macbook and the keyboard does not want to work. i have looked online and i see that the main cause of this problem is in Leopard (correct me if im wrong). So i was wondering if perhaps using linux would solve this problem or if the problem is more hardware related than os related.
Also, how would i go about booting into a linux cd? since u need to enter some keyboard keys at startup and assuming that won't work, is there another way?
I'm trying to get VMware Server 2.0.2 (64-bit version) to work on my Ubuntu workstation. However, the install script ($ sudo ./vmware-install.pl) runs into problems with the kernel modules:
What is the location of the directory of C header files that match your running kernel? [/lib/modules/2.6.31-14-generic/build/include] Extracting the sources of the vmmon module. Building the vmmon module. Using 2.6.x kernel build system. make: Entering directory `/tmp/vmware-config4/vmmon-only' ..... Unable to build the vmmon module. Execution aborted.
Am I missing some required packages? This is 64-bit Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala). uname -a returns Linux hostname 2.6.31-14-generic #48-Ubuntu SMP Fri Oct 16 14:05:01 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux. Got VMware Server 2.0.2 working. However, if you have some tips on getting VMware Server 1.0.x to work with latest Ubuntu easily (without having to compile the whole kernel, for instance), please share those too! My first impression is that I don't like 2.0 at all, and would much rather use 1.0.x if only I got it working.
I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.
I upgraded Ubuntu version 8 to version 9.10 and VMware dosen't work no more. After I launch WVware Workstation a message appears: "Before you can run VMware Workstation, several modules must be compiled and loaded into running kernel." I select install (yes), and after that it's giving me error: "Unable to build kernel module. See log file /tmp/vmware-root/setup-30979.log for details."
I don't know if this is a configuration issue or a hardware issue, but I have a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard and for some reason the F3-F5 keys aren't responding as they used to. They don't respond to anything and, when I tried using F5 on Emacs, it said <XF86AudioNext> is undefined, so I guess it's a weird mapping problem.
Any idea how I could remap them to the original meaning?
I'm running Debian (Squeeze) and I have a toshiba portege m700. It has five buttons on the front just under the screen, which are the only ones accessible when you flip the screen over into tablet mode. One of them is for rotating the screen, and another is for switching to external display. I want to remap the remaining three to control, alt and super so that I can use shortcuts with the stylusThe problem is, when I used showkey to find out the key codes, I found out that each button generates more than one key code:Button 1:
key 126 press >> super_r, although this is distinct from the actual super key (125) key 7 press >> 6 key 7 release key 126 release
For some reason since 9.10 CTRL-V doesn't seem to work in my terminal. Used to work just fine, but now I have to Rightclick Paste any commands.I cut my teeth on commandline inputs and this is a bit like having a dog and doing the barking myself
I want to use the text mode but when I press Ctrl + Alt + F4, I get the normal screen with strange colors, and nothing else...I have to press Ctrl + Alt + F7 to return to the normal screen (I mean, the same screen with the normal colors). Ubuntu 10.04, 64 bits version. Asus u30j.
