OpenSUSE Install :: NumLock Turned Off During Boot

Mar 2, 2010

I have numlock set to on in my system BIOS. After Opensuse 11.2 starts to boot it turns numlock off. After entering my password KDE turns numlock back on. I have just changed my login password to include some number and out of habit try to input the numbers using the keypad - which always fails because Opensuse turned off numlock during boot. This is very inconvenient having to hit the numlck key to enable the keypad. Why is Opensuse disabling numlock during boot and how can I fix it so it stays turned on from boot right through until KDE4 has fully loaded?

I want to have numlock always on in the log-in screen, but I can't get it to work - I always have to activate it manually.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: KDE 4.5.2 - Where To Lock Up NumLock

Oct 25, 2010

In KDE 4.5.2 I can't find where to lock up NUMLOCK. How do you do to have numlock on all the time? I have /etc/sysconfig/hardware/keyboard/kbd-numlock already on yes. If I try to change it I have an error : kbd service is not started.

See below :
# /etc/init.d/kbd restart

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Cannot Disable NumLock Using IBM Space Saver

Feb 10, 2010

I have set the Space Saver as my keyboard layout in the KDE control center*, but Shift+NumLock/ScrollLock still does not work as it should to disable NumLock. I have tried both ibm_space_saver and ibm_spacesaver (isn't this practically a duplicate entry?) and restarted after each, to no avail.

Also, a second, possibly related problem -- why, at the login screen, does it take so long for my keyboard and mouse to start working? Maybe ten seconds after the login prompt seems to be ready -- only then can I actually do anything.

* I think this should be in Keyboard & Mouse instead of Regional & Language, but I can understand why it's there.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Switch Can't Be Turned On Again After Being Turned Off

Feb 2, 2010

The wireless connection works fine. The wireless switch automatically turns itself on every time I start the computer. However, after turning it off, I can't ever turn it on again unless I restart the computer. And because of this, the wireless connection is disabled until the next time I start the computer.I don't think this is a hardware problem because the switch can be turned on and off, although not in the way I expect.

I'm using ubuntu 9.10 on an Acer Aspire 4740G. The command [lspci | grep Network] shows Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01). the [rfkill list] command shows (when the switch is on)

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

and, as expected, shows (when the switch is turned off)

0: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

I just want to be able to turn the switch on or off at any time I want as long as the computer is still on.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: VLC - During Video-playback The Screenbrightness Is Turned To Zero After Approx- 30 Seconds

Dec 1, 2009

I've got a problem with my VLC MediaPlayer (v1.0.3-GoldenEye). During video-playback, my screenbrightness is turned to zero after approx- 30 seconds of playback. After turning the screen brightness to high again, the same thing starts over again. By now, I encountered that changing screen resolutions (e.g. after closing a fullscreen application with a different resolution) also turns my brightness to 0.

Fedora :: Want NumLock Key On Upon Booting?

Oct 16, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 13 (64-bit). I am completely new to Linux. I want the NumLock key to be on upon booting into Fedora. I have tried turning that option on inside the BIOS but it appears that Fedora ignores it. Is there perhaps a way to do it within Fedora?

OpenSUSE Install :: Grub Boot / Unable To Change The Boot Records On The Drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: 128 Gb Boot Error / Installation Froze At 92% And After The Laptop Wouldn't Boot?

Nov 23, 2010

I tried to install 11.3 on my acer aspire 7530 notebook to have dual boot with xp.

I made 4 partitions: one for xp, and the three for linux were made automatically.Before installation I got the warning that the partition wasn't entirely below 128 gb, I installed anyway to give it a try.

The installation froze at 92% and after the laptop wouldn't boot.

Now I've formatted the hard disk and installed windows on a partition leaving a free un formatted partition of 100 gb.

Debian Multimedia :: NumLock Option Disabled At Login

Jul 29, 2010

Using squeeze here. Until recent updates to xserver, my numlock worked as expected, but now the damn thing won't stay on anymore. Numlockx is still broken as it's always been for me in that it turns the numlock on but not the led on the keybord. I'm using slim as a login manager which everytime it's updated they set the numlock option to disabled for whaterver reason, but then that doesn't work if I enable it anyway (why have it?). So what is it with debain/(Linux) and their obsession with disabled numlocks at login, I don't get it?

Ubuntu :: Kernel Panic In 9.10 - Caps And Numlock Key Flashing

May 6, 2010

I get the usual kernel panic that kills the system, everything is unresponsive, if the screen is in screensaver it won't come out just the usual caps and numlock key flashing, if I have a tty open there is nothing dumped to screen. I have seen this happen when transferring large amounts of files to a USB NTFS formatted drive, but I have isolated that and made it occur when just doing a dist-upgrade.

I am pretty sure it is hardware but I am not sure where as this is the second build (last was 7.10 so I thought I would rebuild). dmesg and syslog don't show anything obvious beyond the below in syslog shortly before the panic. May 6 21:52:58 computar kernel: [79.296570] ondemand governor failed, too long transition latency of HW, fallback to performance governor I tried disabling ondemand by simply doing the below to no avail.

Ubuntu :: NumLock Pad Stopped Working - Preference Not Persistent

Dec 17, 2010

I have an HP laptop with a separate numlock keypad. About six months ago, I noticed the number keys were not pressing numbers. I eventually googled it and found that there's a setting in Ubuntu to set the numlock keys as cursor movement.

System > Preferences > Keyboard Preferences > Mouse Keys > DESELECT "Pointer Can Be Controlled Using the Keypad"

I did this and the numlock keys worked. However, a few reboots later I noticed the behavior was back. Again I googled and deselected the checkbox. I noticed again today that this unwanted behavior has returned. Why aren't my preferences persistent?

When shutting down OpenSuSE 11.2, it sometimes locks up on the "init.d/kdb stop" command and the Caps and Numlock key just flash and I can't do anything but hold the power button to shut off. Why does it do that? I have a Dell 5100 Inspiron laptop, 2.4GHz CPU, 1.5GB ram.

Slackware :: Enable NumLock And Then Disable The Button Completely

Jan 8, 2010

I've got 5 users who share a bunch of virtual Windows XP guests via VRDP (VirtualBox RDP access), and I'm having some problems with managing their NumLock state. They all use rdesktop to access the Windows XP machines. This works very well, as long as all of them have NumLock enabled. If one of them disables it by mistake, and then logs into one of the Windows XP machines, NumLock is disabled and some of the programs they use start to act really weird. This is causing us some grief.

So I'd like to be able to enable NumLock on all the computers (they are all running Slackware 12.2) before X, while X runs and while KDE is running. And when NumLock is enabled for the entire system, thenI'd like to remove the ability to disable NumLock altogether. NumLock should always be enabled for these users, no matter what. It would be really nice if Linux/X/KDE/whatever just honored the BIOS setting, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that. Oh, and I'd really like if the NumLock LED was ON, so everybody are made aware of the fact that they have NumLock turned on.

ps. I've tried remapping the keys on the numeric pad with xmodmap, but that doesn't solve the problem. The actual NumLock state must be set to avoid problems with the troubled Windows programs.

OpenSUSE :: Turned On "auto Hide" In The Panel Properties (Gnome) To Maximize The Screen?

Oct 3, 2010

I have the panel (taskbar) positioned on top. I then turned on "auto hide" in the panel properties (Gnome) to maximize the screen.The panel surely disappeared. The problem is that I cannot get it back no matter how much I hoover or click with the mouse - it is gone!...So how do I get it back??? I am rather new to Linux, but I figure that there should be a config file somewhere where I can set "auto hide" to false or something like this.

OpenSUSE Install :: Create USB Boot Drive (like The Old Boot Floppies)?

Sep 29, 2010

I have a Dell laptop with Windows XP installed, and for various reasons (Help: I borked my WindowsXP boot when installing OpenSUSE 11.3) I can not install a GRUB boot loader to the first hard drive (hd0).

I currently have a second hard drive in this laptop with a perfectly working OpenSUSE 11.3 instance, but no way to boot into it. I remember back in ancient times, a common option with Linux distros was to create a boot floppy to boot into Linux rather than installing GRUB or LILO to MBR. Since this laptop doesn't have a floppy drive I'd like to do the same thing with a USB stick. Is there any way to install GRUB (or something similar) to a USB stick? What I am not asking here is whether I can put a full, bootable Linux instance on a USB drive - I only want a boot loader on USB that launches to the appropriate mount point on (hd1).
