OpenSUSE :: Typing Greek Letters Instead Of English Letters

Dec 12, 2010

Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

Ubuntu :: Certain Fonts Cause Greek Letters To Appear As Symbols

Sep 12, 2010

Some fonts cause some greek letters to appear as squares or symbols - while the rest appear correctly.

Is there any way to make all non-latin characters to use a font different than the one the latin characters use?

Debian :: Keyboard Skipping Letters And Continuously Typing Same Letter

Jan 30, 2016

I recently built my first computer which has Debian Jessie running on it.

Everything was running great until I updated the computer a few days ago. After doing that and turning it on a few hours later, the keyboard started missing letters (as in it wouldn't register every key click) and was also typing some letters over and over again. It seems that it doesn't matter what key I press, the same problem occurs.

I tried using the keyboard on my laptop; it worked perfectly. I also tried connecting up another keyboard I had laying around and that seemed to have the same issue. Both keyboards are mechanical.

Ubuntu :: Wireless Keyboard Is Typing Random Letters Not Even Touching?

Aug 5, 2010

I have a wireless keyboard and for some reason it is typing random letters, symbols, and numbers while I am not even touching the keyboard. I tried a different wireless keyboard and that worked for awhile, but even that started to do the same thing. I plugged in a cord keyboard and that has been working fine, but I am unable to type my password if it goes into sleep mode or select my windows partition. It's very confusing and I plan on reinstalling both windows and linux anyways it's that time, but I have to figure this problem out before I do.

OpenSUSE :: Faroese Keyboard Layout - Missing The Letters

Jun 3, 2011

I've been using using Ubuntu and Arch with gnome for ages, but after the whole gnome3 and unity hubub, I decided to go with kde and openSUSE. and I'm completely loving it. However, I have one problem Ubuntu (gnome) has the option to choose the Faroese keyboard layout, but in openSUSE with kde, it's not an option. Now I really need to be able to write a lot, so I need the regular Faroese layout, otherwise I'm missing the letter "ð". openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options

OpenSUSE :: GNOME - Font In The Terminal Window Appears Very Blocky And Some Of The Letters Run Into Each Other

Feb 23, 2011

I've just installed openSUSE 11.3 on a workstation in my office and am having trouble with the font in the terminal window. It appears very blocky and some of the letters run into each other, regardless of font chosen. Here is a pic of the issue: Has anyone any ideas as to what is going wrong? I've gone through the 'Preferences' on the terminal window but nothing I change helps.

Ubuntu :: Blocks Appear Instead Of Letters

Jan 31, 2011

When I started the PC like always, it started normal been having issues actually, every time I start up the PC it freezes when I put the password in and its going to the desktop and stuff, then I have to re-start it or it re-starts itself, or just go to where I have to type in the password again, and then it does it again after a while, after 3 or 4 times of that it goes to the desktop normally and works fine, but today it took some time, and after it finally loaded the panel was all odd, everything appeared in block letters, like when Mozilla can't recognize certain language it just shows you blocks, that appears, but I check the system, where images and all that, everything appears normal, it only seems to be the panel.
wondering if its that I need to re-install the panel, or something else, also this odd file appeared too, it says (invalid coding) next to it, when I go to upload an image or something the files there, I wonder if that has something to do, or maybe its just been there who knows (and the freezing part too), anyways, I'm new here so I don't really know if this place was the right place to post this up OTL theres a screenshot in an attachemnt thing (if I put it up, it would appear to big)

Ubuntu :: Remove The Underlining From Letters On KDE

Jan 18, 2010

how to remove the underlining from letters on KDE (on menus and buttons for keyboard shortcuts I think)? I am currently running Kde4.4. If this can not be done through KDE would it be possible to modify the actual font itself to remove the underlining option? I never use the keyboard to navigate and with the font I am using the underlining seems to touch the letters themselves. Also, on a side note, does anybody know what the command is to bring up the "loguout, turn off computer and restart" menu (the one that comes up when Ctrl+alt+del) are pressed?

General :: Letters Are VERY Faint When Print?

Jul 19, 2011

We have an issue like this: We print PDFs from a Linux box to a printer attached to a Windows machine. Problem is when we print from the Windows the printout comes perfectly with the font bold and clear, but when printing from the Linux box the font is very FAINT and we can see dots in the fonts.

We tried changing the PDF to a text file (i.e. we created text file with the report) with the -o cpi=5 option and still it does not come out properly. Now the font gets bigger, but we can see dots in the font and it is not bold.

General :: Cannot Type Certain Letters In Gnome

Feb 8, 2011

I've recently purchased a VPS to run a private server on. I installed gnome and configured it to run on TightVNC to access from my home computer. Whenever I try to type certain letters such as a lower case "s" it instead accesses the shutdown menu at the top right corner. This is disabling me from finishing my server and downright frustrating.

Debian Configuration :: Hdd Dev Letters - UUID And Labels ?

Jun 30, 2011

I have a debian 6 system in my basement acting as a media server. Debian is on a separate HDD from the raid drives and there is one external drive. Under normal conditions the Debian HDD shows up as /dev/sdk and the external shows up as /dev/sdl, no problems here because I use UUID for mounting. The problem is sometimes this drive isn't picked up on restarts (its old and I think the issue is the power supply in the base of it, to be solved later) . This wouldn't be a problem but it some how shuffles the drive addresses and the Debian HDD becomes /dev/sde, this in turn messes up a script that does a weekly dd of that hard drive. I am only really worried about this for when I go on vacation and I wont be at home if the power goes out.

So, is there a way to address the entire hard drive (not just a partition) other than the dev file? Why did this change from Debian 5 to 6? I never had this problem before with 5.

In case you are wondering, I find it easier recover from an image rather than do a reinstall, then get all the updates and software, then put in all the backed up files.

Fedora :: Change Certain Letters In Filenames To Uppercase?

May 22, 2010

I'm working on changing some badly named files, lots of them. I have a little script I use to change uppercase to lowercase:


Bear in mind all these files have appropriate numbers in the front of each filename. I need help to change ONLY the first letter after each underscore to an uppercase letter. I'm sure this can be done but I've done so much searching in forums and with Google/linux until I'm scrambled.

You can see big letters S P M at the beginning of every line. If I am adding more info to display, those letters continue to appear on every line.

Instead of these letters their should be icons as on screenshots in gnome look

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Keys Type Different Letters?

Aug 8, 2011

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 running Ubuntu 9.10.

I'm aware that grep is good to do a regular find-and-delete as follows:


But this will delete everything on the lines that contain the string sequence "QIEN".
