Red Hat / Fedora :: Uninstalling KeyTouch - Control Keys Not Working
Mar 6, 2011
I installed Keytouch in a useless attempt to allow me to brighten my screen (but that's another thread...) and now the control keys don't work. I tried a couple of files that were supposed to be my keyboard, but neither worked. I don't want to mess with it any more, but I can't figure out how to uninstall it!
I have a logitech dinovo wireless keyboard with those extra multimedia keys on it like Volume Up, Volume Down, and Mute. They didn't do anything so I installed KeyTouch. I was able to select my keyboard from the list in KeyTouch, and if everything was working right then at that point all my extra keys would work. But they still didn't do anything. So I went into the Keytouch editor to make my own custom profile. You click add to add a new key and then it asks you to press a key. So I press the key (Mute) and it recognizes it, and then you select what action you want it to do. I did this for Mute, Volume Up and Volume Down. But yet they still don't work!
Now obviously it detects my key presses (keycode) just fine when I added the new key. So it should do the assigned action when I press that key. What I *want* it to do is mute or change the volume of the Headphones. But as I said that wasn't working at all for some reason. So to narrow it down I instead set the Mute key to simply launch firefox. But it still doesn't work. So there is some disconnect... in the keytouch editor it's detecting the key just fine, but afterwards when you press Mute it doesn't do the action it's supposed to.
control keys aren't working most of the time in Open Office. I can copy, cut and paste with the mouse, but Control+C/X/V/Z is not working at all. I also use intellij idea, there I have the same problem, but I can use its own defined control+alt+space. I've tried Abiword, the control keys worked at the begging but then after a while when I used control+something(C/X/V/Z), it always selected everything. Besides that, the control keys are working perfectly in nautilus, terminal, firefox, chrome, gedit. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.
Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.
This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update. I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?
Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1
I have a testing application, under which I need to disable Ctrl-x and Few other keys...
My Problem is If i disable Ctrl Key using xmodmap command..All the other Ctrl combination are getting disabled...For ex: Ctrl-s, Ctrl-a etc..My goal is to enable some combination of Ctrl key and disabling some combination of Ctrl key..
I have a problem with keyboard mappings on F13. I have the following in my .xmodmap file that is run from .bash_profile:
The problem is that at seemingly random times the roles of the caps lock and control keys (and the other customisations) gets reverted back to normal - which makes for an awful lot of confusion! Running xmodmap again switches them to how I like it, but again after a seemingly random period it resets itself. This occurs under KDE and Gnome in F13, but did not occur in F12. Using the KDE keyboard settings dialog to switch caps lock and control does the exhibits the same behaviour.
I just bought an Apple (intl.) keyboard because of its stylish look and weight but I can't figure out how to map keys to get certain functions that I'm used to working. Particularly Alt+Ctl+F1~6 when wanting to switch to regular terminal and print screen. Is there a tutorial out there that explains how to map keys?
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 am using Samsung N150 and ubuntu 10.10 is installed in it. There is problem with brightness control i.e., I cannot control my brightness by up & down keys. I made settings such as:
I Add the repository to the sources list and enable it sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa Perform complete system update sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade it may take long time depending the internet connection than I installed packages "samsung-backlight" and "easy-slow-down-manager" sudo apt-get install samsung-backlight easy-slow-down-manager
Also I made changes in brightness setting in during the boot i.e set to user control instead of automatic. But after doing all these stuff still my laptop brightness not control by fn + up/down keys.
I don't know how this happened, but my keyboard copy and paste functions have stopped working. Oddly enough, I discovered that I can only copy and paste by using the third mouse button. Pressing down on the scroll wheel after highlighting text copies the text, pressing it again pastes it Ican still use the Edit-copy and Edit-paste menu functions.
I'm sure it has something to do with all the tinkering I have been doing with my desktop. I have been experimenting with CompizConfig and Cairo dock, changing my themes and things of this nature.
I don't care if this is done in the bios or a kernel module or software. Is there any way at all to do make the 'fn' key act as 'control' and the 'control' key act as 'fn' in linux running on a macbook pro?
PS. You can do this with software in OSX with the application KeyRemap4MacBook.
it's a while now that the volume control in gnome stopped working. I tried to reinstall gnome-media, but without success. The icon is present in the top bar and I can see the volume slider, but it simply doesn't change the volume.I'm using F15 on x86_64.
I am having issues with Fedora 11 and audio. I have pulse audio running and configured. The volume control on the top panel (GDE) works properly, but i do not hear any volume until I move it up past 50%. I tested it with the advanced volume controls opened and it even shows the master volume not moving until the volume slider on the panel reaches at least 50%. Can anybody help with fixing this. It is very annoying. Thanks in advance for the support.
After running my computer for a while, my volume control always messes up. I wonder if it is some app. Mute, raise, lower volume all fail, and so does the little volume icon in my notification area. When the computer boots up things are fine. I can do some more testing later to try and pinpoint the source but I need to wait a few hours for a download to finish. I can still use Advanced Volume Control and all the options there work.
I am running Debian Sid, KDE 4.3.4 with kernel 2.6.33 on a dual core 1.6 GHZ Toshiba Satellite A100-VA3, 2G ram. I have 4 multimedia keys beside my main keyboard that I used to configure successfully using the KeyTouch-Editor, and then loading it via KeyTouch. My problem is KeyTouch worked great with KDE 3.5.x but now it doesn't work with KDE 4.x.x. Has anyone managed to get KeyTouch to work with KDE 4.x.x? Is it broken or am I missing some kind of trick to get it to work?
Since the upgrade I have not been able to get keyTouch to work. I have the KDE 4.3 desktop. I have xbindkeys and GTK2 installed. I have installed the KMix plugin. I can start keyTouch in system services, but it stops immediately. If I try to refresh I get /etc/init.d/keytouch-init status returned 1 (program is dead and /var/run pid file exists): I have no idea what that means.
Keytouch assignments do not take with Logitech Access keyboard. E.g. I have set MyHome key to run <firefox> but it runs a file browser instead. E-Mail works, but that's about all. None of the multimedia keys work.
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.
my laptop has a numberpad on the right side. on it, the 7 key is home, and the 1 key is end. the normal home and end keys above it work, but these do not. is there a way I can map the home and end functionality to them?
I have two machines at home. I am trying to setup the ssh server on the server machine so I can connect from the client machine with no password (keys authentication).Well, that shouldn't have been too hard, but the thing is the server user account I want to be able to connect to with keys auth has no password (that is actually the reason I want to setup keys auth). I have done everything in this guide (URL...), both alternatives, but with no success, because at some time I have to ssh the server to the user account that has no password (either with scp or ssh-copy-id) and it fails.
My question is: since I have root access on the server machine, can't I copy manually the public key from the client to the server? (doing manually what ssh-copy-id actually does).Or, maybe there is another way, to change the password on the passwordless account. I have tried with # su <acct>, then passwd, but it doesn't work (asks me for the old password). I was thinking about editing /etc/shadow manually, and inserting the hash in the password field for that account (it currently has an ! ). Would that work?
My setup is Asus EEE701SD running Maverick installed off the Live CD about 6 weeks ago. Everything worked fine until yesterday when I lost most of the keys, but not Ctrl, Alt, Home symbol, Menu symbol.
Keyboard is physically fine as it works correctly in SystemrecCD and when I boot into a recovery root shell, but not when I am running Xorg under Maverick. Keyboard layout is default US (I an in Australia). I tried using Onboard, but even that wouldn't input keystrokes into anything. I tried going in with VNC and that wouldn't work either. It seems this might be an Xorg problem, but why would it happen suddenly, seemingly without any provocation; obviously something has changed, but what... I have removed and reinstalled xserver--xorg using apt-get in a root shell and have also run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but nothing has changed.
I have two computers running Debian Squeeze. I'm trying to set up the public keys for them so that I don't need to use passwords to log in. As far as I know, I did the same thing for both, however only one is working.Here is the connection output for eachBroken:
