Software :: KeyTouch Assignments Not Taken By Logitech Keyboard
May 2, 2010
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.
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 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...
About 5 years ago I bought a Logitech wireless keyboard. I want to add a wireless mouse now. Logitech has no docs on its website for the keyboard or receiver. Does anyone know how to figure out whether any mouse I buy now will be compatible with my old receiver? I know that all wireless mice come with receivers, but I have limited USB ports.
I use a set of keyboard + mouse Logitech MK330. So, they are wireless in five minutes of inactivity have to sleep. But sleep only the keyboard. The mouse does not fall asleep. On distro Ubuntu and Windows goes into standby mode, both devices. How can I fix it to Debian?
During installation Debian distro, mouse goes to sleep, but on the installed system will not go into standby mode.
Used to be it worked fine natively in 'direct' mode. I didn't need to do any bluetooth setup, I just booted and it worked in BIOS and in Debian. Then one day after a dist-upgrade it quit. I fussed with it for two days, finally installing the Bluez software and trying to make it work as a true bluetooth keyboard/mouse. That's how it's been for six months.
It will not hardware pair once X is started. I've tried it with the bluetooth service started and stopped. Something is preventing it from pairing.
I just did a clean install to wheezy on my desktop (figured it was safe enough) and I found out my preferred keyboard, the Logitech 'Wave' K350, does not work on the wheezy installer. I tested to see if the mouse would work (M510) and it didn't work either. It works (or at least it did a few months ago) fine on the Squeeze installer. why my K350 didn't work on the install. It's just your typical wireless keyboard & mouse combo.The K350 works fine after the install.
I have a Logitech G11 keyboard with additional function keys from G1 to G18 and I added those keys to my XKeysymDB and ~/.xmodmaprc accordingly. According to xev, all those keys are working properly, eg.:
$ xev ... KeyPress event, serial 35, synthetic NO, window 0x3400001, root 0x15d, subw 0x0, time 3518287, (167,-33), root:(1501,366), state 0x10, keycode 175 (keysym 0x15000001, G1), same_screen YES, XLookupString gives 0 bytes: XmbLookupString gives 0 bytes: XFilterEvent returns: False
Now, if I try to bind any of those keys to global shortcuts in KDE I got a dialog telling: "The key you just pressed is not supported by Qt." these keys were working perfectly well in Lenny and KDE 3.5. I did some research, and it really seems that this is a some kind of "feature" in KDE 4.2 or Qt. So, is there any way to fix this easily in Squeeze without switching to Wheezy or even Sid?
i'm using a logitech dinovo keyboard/mouse and was trying to figure out if the device is still in boot mode. I don't see the usb hub listed when i hciconfig and i although the udev rules appear to hid2hci, i cant seem to figure out how in the heck i could be paired when i've never went through the process.. lsusb also shows "boot interface subclass" which im guessing means its in bootmode? Im obviously concerned about this because bootmode isnt encrypted.
Is there is anyone who owns a wave keyboard who has had any problem with the media keys or regular keys please tell me. I found somethreads about problems with the media key, but I could not fine any recent ones.
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 had a hell of a time getting 10.04 to work, because I only have a Logitech Dinovo Edge keyboard, and it stopped working after I upgraded. After grub, I'd get to the login screen, and the keyboard wouldn't do anything.
First, I dug up a mouse that did work. Then I logged in by clicking the Human Accessibility icon on the login screen. Somewhere in there, I was able to bring up an on screen keyboard. With the on screen keyboard, I could now login. Under system>preferences>bluetooth, I was able to, after some fiddling and plugging and unplugging, get the keyboard paired to the bluetooth dongle. Anyway, it seems pretty obvious now that my original bluetooth pairing was lost with the 10.04 upgrade, and I just needed to re-pair. I don't remember having such problems on previous upgrades, though.
I have been a keen user of Ubuntu since version 7.something. In that time I have updated, upgraded, or done clean installs of each new versions usually about 2 months after the release to enable small bugs to iron out. There have always been minor issues usually easily rectified via this forum. However the 11.04 release is the worst I have ever come across almost forcing me back to winblows. So what is my gripe. -- 7 hours downloading and upgrading -- to obtain a system that does nothing -- nada. zip. it booted came to the desktop and nothing, Unity doesn't respond, no applications open, and the shutdown didn't work.
So -- downloaded the ISO this morning did a clean install and eagerly went into my new system. First issue -- my logitech cordless keyboard is not working, never had an issue before. so plug in a USB one, which is what I am using now. Go to the 'system settings' (took me a while to find where they had gone) but couldn't find anything in the keyboard section to allow me to configure a cordless keyboard. Failure 1
Open banshee and ask it to load the music library. It does, then click for a file to play and --- no sound! so choose another track just in case and banshee crashes, and the icon disappears from the unity bar. Failure 2 As usual I have an Nvidea graphics card so one of the first things is to install the proprietary driver. Never had an issue before. this time it loaded (apparently) and then I do the restart to enable it, and when I get back in there is no top bar, the Unity bar sits there and won't slide in and out, and no applications will respond. BIG failure 3
Re boot into recovery mode and opt for safe graphics mode. System re boots - Top bar now appears, Unity remains inoperative, and when I click the shutdown icon to get to system settings --- crash and burn system shuts down.-- BIG failure 4 Re boot into recovery mode (again) run "fix broken packages" DPKG runs for a while replacing and upgrading hundreds of packages. When finished reboot -- same issue desktop stuffed! Currently working off the live CD. To the developers -- maybe you are pushing ahead too quickly now. this sort of overall failure will lose more users than gain. I don't usually complain but as my title says for me Natty is an unmitigated disaster.
I am suffering from the following problem: after updating udev from 125 (lenny) to 151 (squeeze) my wireless keyboard Logitech diNovo Edge totally stopped working (says it is disconnected). If I downgrade back to 125 all works fine again.
Does anyone know of a variant on the Logitech SetPoint software (it allows more functions for Logitech keyboards and mice) for Ubuntu? Would the Windows version work in Wine? I didn't think it would because the app uses Bluetooth, and I don't know if Wine can do that.
I recently installed another harddrive into my Arch Linux computer. The first time I booted up all worked fine. The next time I restarted my computer though I was greeted with a /dev/sda2 not found error.
See, basically sometimes my boot harddrive is sda and sometimes it's sdb. It appears to be completely random and I don't see any options for making it non-random in the BIOS. How do I fix this?
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?
i want to backup some of my personal settings. for work i used emblems in nautilus to flag files i already processed (manually). now, i do not find any possiblity to back up the emblem-assignments. from older threads i figured out, that these assignments were in an .xml file in the ~/.nautilus/metadata folder, which is empty since newer versions of nautilus.i also tried to get some useful information out of the .local/share/gvfs-metadata/* files, but i did not succeed with this approach either (just used the "strings" command on them).edit: i'm aware, that i could write a script reading the metadata of the files via gvfs-info. the problem is, i cannot access the files from home, only at work via windows share.
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.
I'm finding increasingly difficult to type because of neurological problems. I've just had a meeting with someone from university who said they could get me some speech recognition software to write assignments. I was wondering if anyone knows of any which will run on Ubuntu rather than just Windows. (I don't have Windows on either of my computers)
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.
Computer: Toshiba Satellite Pro L510 laptop, 10.10.This has always happened but I have gotten around it by time-out and putting my menu.list in order. When I first boot the machine (switch on for the day from computer being off) I get to the grub options to select a kernel and I have no keyboard. No up/down arrows so have to go with the kernel on top of the list (not always desirable).
When I get to the log-in screen if I hit restart and go back to the grub screen I have a keyboard and can select any kernel. If I login to the kernel I have full keyboard, no problem. If I then restart, I have keyboard at the grub list.
Nutshell: It is only when starting the computer fresh that the keyboard is dead at grub menu (and then only). Any time after that, once the computer has been switched on, if I restart I have keyboard at grub menu and can select different kernels. (Of course, if I switch the computer off and back on again, no keyboard ...)
