Software :: Disable Any Keyboard/mouse Input In GRUB?

Jan 11, 2011

I've found that my USB mouse causes some I/O bug BIOS, but in operation system it works fine. Problem is freezing GRUB caused by fake input from the mouse. Possible decision is disabling any input for grub, but I don't know how to do it.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Get Any Keyboard/mouse Input To Register On Screen?

Dec 19, 2010

I installed Ubuntu a couple of months ago using the Wubi installer.Today, I went to restart my PC, but soon after hitting 'Restart' the computer became unresponsive. I couldn't get any keyboard/mouse input to register on screen, so I did a force shut down by holding down the power button. When I turned the computer back on, I selected Ubuntu from the boot menu. The computer printed some messages that passed by relatively quickly so I'm not sure exactly what they said, but it was something along the lines of "NTFS3: wubibuilder failed to load", and then it went straight back to the boot menu. Tried again and again with no success, so I loaded my Windows 7 install to investigate from there. I found a link to Explore2fs on these forums, so I loaded it up, but it apparently can't locate my Ubuntu partition, or at least I don't see my files. I ran the Wubi installer again to see what it would say, and it tells me that a previous installation was detected, and gives me the option to uninstall. Does anyone have an idea of what went wrong,

Ubuntu :: Restore Dead Mouse And Keyboard Input From Live Cd?

Jan 1, 2011

how I restore dead mouse and keyboard input from the live cd. Basically what happened was I was updating the machine and decided to let them run in the background while my sister's 6 year old son played some tux computer games, when he was finished he switched the entire computer off at the power button and it was still updating in the background. Now there is no mouse or keyboard input, I cannot get into the recovery console, nor can I control a terminal from the login screen in order to successfully complete the update. This means basically the only option to fix it would be to re-install or fix the human user interface device drivers (keyboard and mouse) via the live cd, I am in need of some advice or instructions on how to go about fixing this issue.

Slackware :: On KDE Log-in Screen Mouse Pointer And Keyboard Input Not Acknowledged

Oct 10, 2010

I just recently installed Slackware onto a virtual machine(I'm planning on buying a new disc drive and 1 TB HDD with-in the next couple of months and plan on Slackware being my primary OS[right now Mac OS X 10.6 is]), and everything went great.

I then went onto edit the /etc/inittab file in emacs and changed the run-level to 4. I don't know why it's decided that I'd want to boot into KDE when XFCE is installed and in the configuration I selected XFCE but it's not really relevant(I have a WM guide thing open in another tab and will probably be able to change it).

The problem is, as the vague title may suggest, is that it basically freezes when I'm at the log-in screen. The input field for the username is highlighted and blinking, and the cursor it self is visible in the centre of the screen, but it simply doesn't pick up on any input from my keyboard or mouse.

I tried booting up the install CD and logging in as root, mounting sda4(which is the root partition) and editing said file but sudo isn't installed(to my knowledge) on the install disc and when I do the command,

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Keyboard>Mouse Shortcuts

Nov 12, 2010

I've been playing WoW on my Ubuntu installation, but I'm having a bit of a trouble using certain keybinds. When holding down alt and pressing one of the mouse buttons, a shortcut button of some form is enabled and negates the keybind; ie: Alt + Right mouse button shows a grabbing hand, Alt + Middle Mouse button shows a diagonal arrow in a corner, and Alt + Left mouse button shows the context menu.

Surely this is something simple I've missed, but I didn't see anywhere to disable these in either keyboard shortcuts or keyboard / mouse options.

Fedora :: Disable Input Device For X?

Feb 16, 2010

I have a Kore Controller from Native Instruments [URL] using it as a sound card on Fedora 12. Its input knobs are supported by Linux, too, but they are pretty useless for me.It came out that these input knobs send mouse movements from time to time, letting my mouse pointer jumping to the upper left corner of the screen.

So I want to disable the knobs, i.e. I want X to not interpret these "knob actions" as mouse movements. What is the best way to achive this? Can I disable it somewhere in HAL configuration or do I have to modify xorg.conf? And how do I do this?Simply plugging out the Kore Controller is not an option for me because I use it as sound card.

Ubuntu :: No Reaction To Mouse Input?

May 17, 2010

I have a pc here, that after it has been running for some time (5 - 10min) stops reacting to mouse input.You can still move the mouse around, but nothing happens when clicking, the exception being that I can still put the cursor into the gnome shell. The keyboard still works. If I restart the gnome session, everything is fine again for a few minutes, before the problem starts again. The pc has a Nvidia 8800gtx pro card. I know that there were some issues with this cards and Lucid Linx, but I didnt find anything helpful on this particular problem. I did reinstall the proprietary drivers, but the problem persists.Something else that might be worth mentioning: At some startups there is a message displayed:"Gave up waiting for root device..." There is more, but I forgot to write it down last time it happened.

Ubuntu :: No Keyboard At Grub First Boot - Keyboard After Restart?

Jun 27, 2011

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 ...)

OpenSUSE :: Getting Japanese Input On US Keyboard?

Feb 11, 2010

I know it is possible, and I have been trying everything I can find, but I can't seem to get it to work. I went to languages in YaST and enabled Japanese as a second language, and I have tried adding japanese as a secondary keyboard layout under configure desktop-> regional and language settings. I have a little flag in the system tray that I can click to change from US to Japanese, but all that does is change what the punctuation buttons do.

Ubuntu :: Disable Input Device - AutoAddDecices=True

Jun 10, 2010

I have installed Lynx and want to use two X servers at the same time. Each server has its own ServerLayout section in xorg.cong. The first ServerLayout Section has AutoAddDevices enabled, so that new input devices are added automatically. The second ServerLayout has AutoAddDevices disabled, and one InputDecice pointing to /dev/input/mouse3. That way, this mouse is the only input decive affecting the second X instance.

Unfortunately, this mouse is also controlling the first server (due to AutoAddDecives). Can anyone tell me how to disable this? I want every input device to be added to the first server, except this mouse. In earlier versions of ubuntu, I used a hal rule to make hal ignore this mouse. So it was not added to the first server. Now that hal is not used by lynx anymore, I don't know how to do this. I have already read some things about udev and the xorg.conf.d folder.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Input Disabled In Flash

Mar 10, 2010

The issue I've been having is with Flash on websites; most notably, Livestream's Flash-based browser viewer, and Adult Swim's flash-based games. Clicking works perfectly fine, but the keyboard input is entirely disabled for the Flash area. Text boxes, or game controls, won't respond at all, even when everything else is still working.The only way to input any text into Flash-based text boxes is to write it somewhere else (Firefox's URL or Search bar, or in GEDIT), then copy+paste into the tect box (again, Ctrl+V won't work, only right-clicking and pasting will go through).

I've tried multiple versions of the Adobe Flash player, including the installer directly from Adobe's site, the adobe-flashplugin package in Synaptic, the flashplugin-installer package, and I believe I tried GNASH as well (although I'm not sure if that did anything).I haven't had a chance to attempt to downgrade either one yet, however, nor have I been able to test another browser.I've seen a few other issues of this sort pop up here before, but they've all either gotten no solutions, or they're a year or two old, or they're running into 64-bit-specific issues. Hopefully this is posted in the correct location, and fingers crossed someone has an answer (or better yet, a solution).

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Input Anything From The Keyboard - It Seems Greyed Out?

May 4, 2010

I have done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. However I don't like Evolution mail client and installed Thunderbird from the repositories. It installed fine and comes up with the wizard to fill account details in but for some reason you can't input anything from the keyboard - it seems greyed out. I tried uninstalling and re-installing but it's still the same. Everything else is fine and working.

Ubuntu :: No Keyboard Or On Screen Input - Any Workaround?

Aug 8, 2011

Running natty. Main user account. In Ubuntu & Ubuntu Classic, both gnome, no keyboard or on-screen keyboard input. Compiz & metacity both bad. Mouse okay. Other user accounts okay. KDE okay.

Tracked problem to /home/{user}/.gconf/desktop/gnome/session/required_components/%gconf.xml. Removed file, problem goes away.

File contents:

Security :: Prevent Spying Keyboard Input?

Oct 16, 2009

I just made a script to read out /dev/input/event3 into a file (My keyboard is identified here [ Machine is a laptop which runs on slax-atma distro ]). Then used a hexdump to convert the binary into hex. After that used a gwak script to print out the keys corresponding to each keyboard input. So now when I put this in my rc.local , It is taking down all the keys I press. Including login passwords (In short, each and every keys I press).Isn't this a big security risk, because intruder who has a physical access to my machine or has root password can put this file in rc.local and run a script to mail him all the details like my passwords, account and PIN numbers.

Ubuntu :: Add Guides In GIMP Kills Mouse Input?

Jun 17, 2011

Using 11.04 and GIMP 2.6.11. When I click the rulers to add a guide, no guide is added and clicking becomes unresponsive throughout gimp. Additionally, gimp steals all keyboard input from all other applications. I found out I can restore keyboard/mouse input to normal by simply minimizing the gimp main window.

General :: Prevent Pinentry From Stealing Keyboard Input?

Oct 4, 2010

I am using gpg keys with passphrases set to connect to different jabber accounts. When I restore from hibernate I am prompted by two pinentry dialogs for these passphrases. But very often one of these dialogs that is not in focus steals keyboard input from the other dialog. Even worse, they steal keyboard input from fluxbox and other applications and I am unable to do anything until I enter it or click cancel if I do not want to input password right now. How can I forbid pinentry to steal keyboard input and to get it only if it is in focus? I am using pinentry-0.8.0 on Gentoo amd64 with USE="ncurses qt4" (/usr/bin/pinentry is a symlink pointing to pinentry-qt4).UPDATE:After some research, I found that pinentry accepts --no-global-grab option, which, according to the info page, should be used only by developers. Still unsure how to make it default: having#!/bin/zshexec /usr/bin/pinentry-qt4 --no-global-grab $@in place of /usr/bin/pinentry symlink does not work (this script is launched, but option is ignored), if I place it into /usr/local/bin it is not launched at all though I have /usr/local/bin in $PATH before /usr/bin.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Disrupted Keyboard Input In Gnome?

Nov 7, 2010

I'm running a 13" white Macbook. The keyboard worked fine, until today. I logged in and half the keys didn't work, the other half were numbers not the letters they were supposed to be. This started after log in, meaning I was able to enter my password properly: The problem starts when gnome boots up.

By copy and pasting, I installed Kubuntu, where the keyboard also works properly, so this is clearly a gnome problem. I haven't ruled out malicious software, which seems like the next step: How do I verify and replace all the software (gnome) that might be corrupted?

I can't get the piano or guitar or whatever sound that the keyboard is making into the computer. I can upload some video to show what I'm talking about with the aux connector.

Programming :: Java Needs To Quit If No Keyboard Input For Several Seconds

I've got a program that takes keyboard input with BufferedReader and readline(), but readline() is blocking so I can't increment any sort of counter to quit the application after a period of inactivity, because the program is just waiting for an input from readline(). Do I need to create multiple threads, where one thread counts down an inactivity timer, or is there some method of using non-blocking keyboard inputs?
