Hardware :: Ps2 And Usb Ports Won't Recognize Inputs
Sep 19, 2010
He doesn't do anything except emails, Internet search and sort pictures and I don't think he or his wife do anything I haven't shown them. The computer is an older model but I'm unsure of the brand, the motherboard is Intel entry server S845WD1-E. Recently his mouse stopped working, then his keyboard. I am going to try a ps2 card (the ps2 is internal to board). We are unable to use a usb mouse or keyboard. I have installed a new usb card but that did not work. I've tried different memory but have not run memck on it with another computer. After trying several suggestion from various support sites, including Intel, I finally cleared CMOS, removing the battery and then reset jumpers. Now I can enter Setup, but of course can't use the keyboard to change the settings in BIOS. I want to load CD-ROM first, but can't access via keyboard to change. I suspect the motherboard is going out, but still have hope. This couple is elderly and fixed income so I'm trying to milk it for all I can. I can use his HD on my system just fine.
Do you know any dvd playback app that can recognize inputs from a remote control (like play, pause e.t.c) and at the same time when I launch it to check the dvd rom and resume playback from last time. I used vlc but it does not seem that works like the way I do.
I'm writting an app for desktop and embedded linux and I need to get information about the multiserial port, and I need to know which port is been used (by a printer, por example).The multiserial I'm using is an Altera Corporation Device 0004, and I just need to tell how many ports are there and how many is been used.
When i boot and GRUB loads there are too many options for ubuntu.There are like 7 different ububt options(i think it's for different kernels) and last the windows partition.Is it possible to get rid of some of the old kernel options
I'm using an IOGEAR KVM Switch to switch between my newly built PC and Xbox 360. I've been using it for a while on my 360 with no problems, but to switch inputs you have to use a hotkey on a keyboard that is connected to the KVM switch (there is no button on the KVM switch to toggle between inputs). My KVM switch is compatible with Linux, but each time I plug in my Logitech Wired Wave keyboard into my KVM switch and use the hotkey it fails to switch the input. The hotkey is the Scroll Lock key on the keyboard, and the Logitech Wired Wave keyboard doesn't have a key dedicated to that function.
So I use the key combo for Scroll Lock, which is Fn + Pause/Break. I haven't mapped out all the keys on this keyboard yet, but I figured it should already be mapped out, since all the other basic keyboard keys are working. I managed to switch the toggle key from tapping the Scroll Lock key (combo) twice to tapping the Control key twice, after finally figuring out the manual's long and convoluted key combinations to change the input toggle key setting. If anyone else encounters this problem I would direct you to the Page 11 of the product manual, which is available at the product page linked to above.
I installed Ubuntu with the netboot. I only installed the packages I needed. Concerning X, I installed xdm as login manager and fluxbox as window manager. All is working fine except that whatever I type under X (under xdm or, after logging in, under fluxbox) appears in tty1! The keyboard inputs appear under X and under tty1 (so usually after "login:", or hidden after "password:").
Let me provide you with more details. Starting from xdm, I cannot access to the other ttys. "ctrl+alt+F[1-6]" do not work. Actually, this is not entirely true: after I type "ctrl+alt+F2", all my keyboard inputs under X will be appear in tty2 (and not anymore in tty1). I can see that from /var/log/auth.log which has a lot of lines like this:
May 13 10:15:45 data login: pam_unix(login:auth): check pass; user unknown May 13 10:15:45 data login: pam_unix(login:auth): authentication failure; logname=LOGIN uid=0 euid=0 tty=/dev/tty1 ruser= rhost= May 13 10:15:48 data login: FAILED LOGIN (2) on '/dev/tty1' FOR 'UNKNOWN', Authentication failure
These errors are due to the fact that tty1 receives a wrong login (something I typed under X, before pressing RET). BTW: If I connect to xdm using my password (instead of my passphrase, thanks to pam_ssh), then I login into tty1 at the same time.
I checked that X is running under tty7. "ck-list-sessions" returns:
Under X, if I type "ctrl+alt+F7" and "RET", then X crashes and it is launched again. After this, all is working fine: the tty[1-6] can be accessed and the keyboard inputs do not go anymore to them when I am under X.
I face the same problem on two different computers (a desktop computer and a laptop). Notice that I face the problem even with pam_ssh not installed (I mentioned pam_ssh earlier).
i should start by saying i'm using ArtistX OS, (based on Ubuntu Karmic (9.10)) I have a cassette deck and a usb turntable that i want to use to digitize my old stuf. at first, there was no output from either device, but after much fiddelin', when i right click on the volume icon and hit sound preferences, input tab, i can see that there is now incoming signal from both devices, but no audio rendering. also, again after much try this or that, got audacity to record and playback (audibly, but i could still not hear it durring recording), but that which was rendered was not acceptable quality for archiving i havn't a clue what to try now
I am literally bashing (pun intended) my head against the keyboard at this minute! I am trying to automate a script via cron for my centos server. The script requires two user inputs (e.g. read VAR). However, I do not want to edit the original file, as I would like to be able to run it normally as well. It is also made by someone else, and so if an update becomes available, it will be easier to install. My idea is that i create a cron script, to run this second script from, and the only way i could find was with expect. However I am having troubles, In order to test out expect, I have created the following: test.sh
It looks as if the second input is completely ignored ?! what i am doing wrong? or if there is a more elegant solution to running a script from a script with user inputs?
Is this possible to record keyboard inputs in a file which will be provided during running a script.? Means suppose there is a script ./instal.sh To run this script, some inputs need to be provided.Is this possible to record these inputs in a file?
I am running Ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. For the most part it works well, but it seems to occasionally become mostly unresponsive (~1 / 2days). I say mostly unresponsive because I can still move the mouse, but I do not seem to be able to click on anything (either to open or close programs or windows, or interact with menus). The keyboard is also partially responsive. When I use my keyboard shortcut to get access to the Applications menu, the menu highlights and depresses as though it is opening, but nothing appears on the screen. I can eventually press Ctrl+Alt+Del to start the shutdown procedure (and the shutdown screen pops up with the 60s countdown).
But I cannot use either the keyboard or the mouse to select another option (Restart, Suspend, Hibernate, or even Cancel), nor can I select the Shutdown option to cause it to shutdown right away - I just have to wait the sixty seconds for everything to turn off. This seems to happen no matter what I am doing with no warning - browsing the web, playing a game, or working on a document. The only consistent thing is it only seems to happen when I have more than one program open and I am trying to switch between open windows.
I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS last week (32 bit, gnome desktop, no desktop effects). The system was quite stable before the upgrade (it's usually on 24/7 with uptimes in the dozens of days), but ever since updating to 10.04, the system loses all mouse and keyboard input at random times.
I can still ssh into the system fine and reboot it in an orderly fashion from a laptop, but I'd rather that it wouldn't freeze like this in the first place
I've tried service gdm start / stop from an ssh session to see if it's an xorg-related problem, but sadly that did not help in recovering mouse / keyboard input.
I also tried unplugging and re-plugging the ps/2 keyboard and the usb mouse, but sadly that also didn't help.
I don't see any weird messages in dmesg, so it's not a kernel oops either it seems.
I'm using the proprietary nvidia driver if that matters.
With pulseaudio handling sound on Lucid (10.04), when I plug in my USB headset it's recognized, but there was no easy way to have it be used without going to System > Preferences > Sound > Input & Output and checking the radio buttons. Then if it's unplugged, and plugged in again later, the setting has been lost, so it was back through the menus. Not good when the headset's not plugged in and I'm fumbling to answer a Skype call. What would be ideal is if pulseaudio could prioritize and always default to the headset when it's plugged in. But I'm told by one of the pulseaudio gods (Col) that it can't yet.Here's a way to at least get the switch down to one button on the panel bar.0. Get all your devices plugged in1. Find your outputs (speakers, headphones):Quote:pacmd list-sinks | grep alsa_output2. Find your inputs (such as a microphone):Quote:pacmd list-sources | grep alsa_input3. Write a bash file to choose one or both, like this but with device names appropriate to your system which you've discovered above for the alsa_output.* and alsa_input.* strings.Quote:
both audio inputs (I use the integrated mic on my notebook) and jack-sense (integrated speakers/headphones) work properly, as they should. But after some time (from few minutes up to several hours) both of them cease to work simultaneously. After that the mic input levels turning gray and speakers don't work at all (when headphones were connected at that moment) or speakers don't mute when I connect my headphones (if headphones were not connected then). After I reboot, everything is okay again for some time, but then it happens again. Setting mixer levels manually with alsamixer doesn't help at all. I also tried different snd-hda-intel model settings in alsa.conf, but that just made things messed up, so I stayed with auto setting. This way everything (inputs/outputs/sense) works as should until it simply stops working.
It's maverick, ALC268, ATI Azalia (Intel HDA), alsa 1.0.23, but I had this problem with karmic and lucid as well when I tried them. Now I want to switch from Win7, but this is the only thing keeping me from it.
I was wondering if there is an application for Ubuntu (FOSS or otherwise) that would allow me real time management of all of my audio inputs and outputs. Essentially I have multiple microphones attached to my computer and multiple audio outputs. What I am looking to do is to be able to assign each different input to it's own audio output. A touch screen interface is a plus for the program but not necessary.
I am running Ubuntu Studio 9.10 and have been using wineasio to connect Reaper to JACK successfully for a while now. However, I am now experimenting with using multiple soundcards in JACK (via alsa_in). My main card is an M-audio delta 44 (4 inputs) and I want to route the inputs from my onboard soundcard into Reaper using JACK. No problem so far.. This all works with alsa_in. But the problem is I can't get reaper to start with more than 4 in/out.
With wineasio, there is an environment variable "ASIO_INPUTS=" and "ASIO_OUTPUTS=" which allows you to set the number of in/out... Which I already used to bump it up to 4 when the default was 2. But when I try to set the inputs to 8, for example, Reaper still only recognizes that there are 4 inputs in its configuration.
The problem here is I need more than 4 separate input tracks going into Reaper simultaneously. It would also be nice to just have some "virtual" in/out ports to route things around in more ways. Another option I have considered is the "Rearoute" drivers in Reaper, however I'm not sure if that will play well with JACK. I'll have to test it tonight and see. I guess if it doesn't connect to JACK, it may be theoretically possible to run JACK simultaneously with the Rearoute driver with Reaper, and then actually use alsa_in on the same card to bridge it to JACK (in addition to using alsa_in for the onboard soundcard inputs as well)... But if this even works, I'm not sure if the latency will be worse ...
Does anybody have any insights on this? Am I doing something wrong or overlooking something? Is this just a limitation of wine or wineasio that it cannot assign more inputs than the primary sound card physically has? Would "virtual ports" help me at all in this endeavor?
This is regarding the PPC machine in our lab, the OS running is Linux. Since we dont know the root login and password, we couldn�t login to this PPC machine. We tried to login as using single user to reset the password however when we reach the single user prompt, inputs from the keyboard are no longer recognized and the machine freezes.
I have a BASH script which at one point asks the user a yes/no question. I want to make it so that if the user types in an invalid input 3 times consecutively then the BASH script will echo an error and terminate with exit status 1.
I am using Ubuntu 9.10. I have downloaded MythTV frontend and attempted installing and using Hauppage USB WinTv -HVR 950Q tuner. On TVTime I get "no signal". I attempt configuring source but ge nowhere. I have used MythTv backend to set up tuner. It recognizes the tuner, but when I select "Watch TV" I get the message: "Error: MythTV is using all inputs but there are no active recordings?"
Just did a check on "shields up" and it says that ten of my ports are open. I get the same result with or without both shorewall and firestarter. I suspect it may have something to do with the mysql server packages added automatically during installation. Am I right. If so, what can be done about it? If not, has anyone any idea how to keep my ports closed?
I'm trying to setup oracle10g but, whenever I try to go to my database homepage http://127.0.0.1:8080/apex I get an "unable to connect to" error. Only reason I can think of as to why I can't connect to it is because my ports aren't open. I also recall SELinux complaining about something awhile ago, I can't seem to bring that up any more for some reason.
I want to test automatically if the USB ports are in use. I want to test it in a bash script
I found some information about ttyUSB0 in the /dev/
The problem is, there is usb hub between the system and the mouse/keyboard. The other USB port is in use for the Ubuntu live usb. When I open the /dev/ map virtual and pull out the usb keyboard the hidraw1 diappears, same for the keyboard. When both are out and I pull out the usb hub, nothing happens.
