I am trying to get the wireless lan to work on a Lenovo 3000 n100. Currently the light does not come on and the card does not work. Cnet says that this computer has an intel pro wireless 3945abg however /sbin/lspci -nnk Yields 03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN [14e4:4311] (rev 01) ubsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0465] Kernel driver in use: b43-pci-bridge
I got Sun Type 5 Unix keyboard which uses mindin-8 connector, attached to a PC through a special adapter which converts it to USB. The keyboard's distinctive features are Control key in the middle row (swapped with Caps Lock which makes it a Unix layout - much more comfortable for the pinky) plus a whole bunch of extra Sun keys, including such useful ones as "Copy", "Paste", and volume control. (Sun Type 5 keyboard has very good feeling to its keys, much better than Type 7 one).Those extra keys work as expected with this adapter in Gnome on OpenIndiana (OpenSolaris previously), but aren't supported out of the box on Debian. Looking around I didn't find any good up to date tutorial how to enable them on Debian or any other Linux. Did anyone try to do it?
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?
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 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.
Neither Ubuntu's Unity or KDE respond to the function keys on a regular Apple USB keyboard. I can plug in a non-Apple keyboard and they work just fine. What needs to be changed or configure so that F1 and company on the Apple keyboard work as on other keyboards?
Got to say first off, I have LOVED the 10.10 release, absolutely adore it. Only problem that I have noticed thus far, is that when I use any of the non standard buttons, it causes my left clicking to stop working.
It's not a big deal but something that does come in handy every once in a while =/
When I use the down arrow on my new keyboard it also does and enter key as well. When I use the left and right arrow keys and hold them it doesn't keep going. It just clicks once and I have to pressing it over and over again. Any one know the correct settings to setup my keyboard? It's a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard.
I have a Slackware 13.1 install on a Desktop PC with wireless keyboard and mouse. When I log in it takes a very long time(5 minutes or so) before the keyboard starts working, and f.ex. it's possible to do Alt-F2. The mouse also works slowly in this period, but it is working.
I'm running KDE 4.5.2 on Slackware current, but did have the same problems with the fresh install and KDE4.5.1. When the lag period is over everything is working as normal. I have turned of strigi indexing and could not find anything special when running "ps ax" or "top".
I tried to upgrade from 10.4 to 10.10.Every thing went normal until the grub screen wanted me to select which kernel.The wireless usb keyboard and mouse would not work.I found an old keyboard and mouse, they worked.the login screen popped up, I selected the user name and typed the password.After a moment the login screen pops back up.I can log into the recovery console.
I want to install Linux on my laptop. I started with Arch but 4 hours later, I'll take anything so now I'm trying Ubuntu.It appears that the keyboard function button that corresponds to my wireless does not work, and perhaps is windows dependent?Every time I try to interact with wlan0, I get the error "Operation not possible due to RF-kill". And as I've looked around online, it has been suggested in other forums that the only way to resolve this is to reinstall windows and dual boot, so the FN key will work.
I think this is ridiculous. There must be a way to persuade the RF-kill to be turned off again, shouldn't there?I don't have a recover disk for this laptop and I don't want to go through the trouble of requested one from acer. I reformatted the whole disk while attempted to install arch.
Have a dedicated Fedora 10 laptop so that I can learn everything I need to know. I am using an Acer Aspire 3000 with a fresh copy of Fedora 10 and KDE
The Aspire 3000 has a built in broadcom wireless card, with windows XP you activate the wireless using an LED button on the front of the laptop, but with Fedora I can't seem to do this.
I have found a couple of threads to fix this error on Ubuntu but nothing about fedora. I don't want to change OS as I have just about got this system running like clockwork. I have left the wireless until last as the normal LAN works fine.
After one of latest update I have problem with meta keys (like shift, ctrl and alt) in KDE. When I press one of this keys, it sometimes stays active after release and deactivates only after I press it again. It's annoying especially while I'm writing some code (php or html) and meta keys randomly stays active after release.
how can i control vlc via the keys above my keyboard(my english sucks and i have no idea what they are called, meta keys? multimedia keys? whatever)only MPlayer responds to them, not vlci opened vlc preferences window and in hotkeys page, i wanted to add the "PLAY KEY" to "PLAY/PAUSE" but it wouldn't even recognize the keys, nothing happens when i press them, but it would recognize something else ,like
I could not find any way to enable dead keys on my keyboard on Lubuntu 10.04 via gui.I created xorg.conf by using X -configure command and tried to add followings into /etc/X11/xorg.conf but it did not work.
I found this:Software.openSUSE.orgIt's supposed to make G keys work and make them programmable, but i don't know if it'll work for G11 keyboard...Did anyone manage to get the G11 macros to work in Linux?I'm using openSUSE 11.2. 64 bit.I tried searching in YAST for some drivers or something, but couldn't find anything...
Yesterday, after browsing for a while, my keyboard suddenly started to show different characters than typed. The keys are just typing different letters than pressed. For example, the j displays a 1, the k displays a 2, and so on. This only happens on the x server. On the terminal, before starting the x server, the keyboard works just fine.
I'm trying to write a new keyboard layout. I'm testing using Debian Squeeze and Kubuntu 11.04, both with KDE. It is important to solve this issue with a keyboard layout as opposed to playing with xmodmap or scancodes and keycodes because I need to leave other keyboard layouts intact and usable. For the time being the new layout is called Noah, implemented as a variant of US English. If this is done more easily by making whole new layout that is not a variant of another then I am willing to go that route.
First off, I am trying to move the Caps Lock key to the current location of the "B" Key. This is my code (the unshown parts of the files have not been touched):
The problem is that this configuration is also affecting the US English layout. When I press "B" the keyboard gives a B _and_ a Caps Lock! So typing I get output like this: "keybOARD". How do I restrict the B key to being Caps Lock only in the Noah layout?
I'm unable to use the extra macro keys of my Sidewinder X6 keyboard in linux; I've tried to get the scancodes of the keys following the instructions in [url] but the program don't show me any scancode when I press the macro buttons.
is there a nice clean simple lightweight way to assign pc keyboard keys sounds?anyone know a simple lightweight way to assign sounds to keys in linux?like so your keyboard can be played like an instrument...i'd rather not do it through thewindow manager'sconfigurations, assigning single key shortcuts to audio samples, since i dont want it on all the time, and having two wm configs to toggle between could just get messy, and limits it to that wm, until you build it all from scratch again for another wm.or even if there isnt a simple lightweight way... what audio/midi software lets you assign samples/notes/etc to keys.(i tried searching for quite a while, but it was obvious i was struggling to find the terms that werent so genereic and with multiple meanings, that just get all the wrong kinds of things)
live in the German speaking part of Switzerland and therefore a Swiss German keyboardThere are only 3 different keyboard layouts: Switzerland, Switzerland eliminate dead keys/sun keysThe problem is: I desperately need the dead keys to type the be ?rall of the layouts have the dead keys eliminated so the only way is to use caps lock, but that's not all that great.
Everything has been fine until tonight - updates have always ran ok. Automatic update screen appeared tonight so ran it as usual.
Now the keyboard layout is all wrong, ie backspace key puts a 5 in rather than go back a space, enter key puts / and spacebar moves 2 spaces also numbers on the right are not correct despite number lock on as usual. What happened to the settings and how can reset keyboard settings.
