Surviving without mouse or touchpad I have been looking for this without initial success: only 2 oldie questions like the one I was going to place: [URL]... But I found it!!: [URL]...
So the key keyboard shortcut is: CTRL+ALT+TAB
With it you change the focus from the desktop to the panel, and vice versa When the focus in in the panel you can move from icon to icon with TAB (to the right) or SHIFT+TAB (to the left). Then Enter key (sometimes F10 instead) makes the same as left-clicking with the mouse, and SHIFT+F10 makes the same as right-clicking with the mouse. ESC key (sometimes Enter instead) takes the menus out.
I don't know if this is a configuration issue or a hardware issue, but I have a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard and for some reason the F3-F5 keys aren't responding as they used to. They don't respond to anything and, when I tried using F5 on Emacs, it said <XF86AudioNext> is undefined, so I guess it's a weird mapping problem.
Any idea how I could remap them to the original meaning?
I'm running Debian (Squeeze) and I have a toshiba portege m700. It has five buttons on the front just under the screen, which are the only ones accessible when you flip the screen over into tablet mode. One of them is for rotating the screen, and another is for switching to external display. I want to remap the remaining three to control, alt and super so that I can use shortcuts with the stylusThe problem is, when I used showkey to find out the key codes, I found out that each button generates more than one key code:Button 1:
key 126 press >> super_r, although this is distinct from the actual super key (125) key 7 press >> 6 key 7 release key 126 release
After upgrading to Lucid, Mouse Keys started working erratically. For example: If I keep pressed the 4 numpad the pointer doesn't move, however, when I press 5 the click happens where it should. In short, the mouse pointer doesn't reflect MK's movements.
After upgrading to 11.3, from 11.2, I apparently have only one nagging problem: the numpad doesn't work. After doing some research I found the problem is obviously that mouse keys is on; shift-numlock fixed it. But, I can't find any place in YaST or KDE System Settings to change that. Where did it go?
I did look in the xorg.conf.d folder and checked all the files there, but no luck.
On windows I have an autohotkey script which: - Only works when caps lock is on - Generates left, middle and right mouse button events when left control, menu and alt keys are pressed - Allows holding the keys down (for dragging objects) Is there an easy way of duplicating this functionality in linux?
My wife just moved onto Ubuntu after dumping Vista and she loves it! Only thing is that our 10 month old son adores smashing his hands on the keyboard when attempting to talk to his grandparents over Skype. In Vista, we downloaded a small software that locked the keyboard but not the mouse or screen. This locking could be toggled via a system tray icon.
Is there something similar that is available for Linux, specifically Ubuntu 10.4? If anyone knows of a solution, do let me know.
I'm trying out various windows mgrs and I'd love to be able to preserve certain key mappings... ...but what's REALLY important are the MOUSE KEYS!!!!!!! I use the mouse left-handed. I can set that in Gnome or KDE easily, but if I go into, say Ratpoison, it's un-set again. Is there a system-wide (or as close to it as possible) mouse setting?
1) Keyboard number keys on the right side, including backslash, plus, minus, etc. stopped working. The rest of the keyboard seems okay. It's not just this keyboard, either, because I plugged in my other keyboard and it has the same problem.
2) My mouse seems to have an intermittent problem in which it stops working for a few seconds or a minute. I can move it around the screen but I'm not able to click on anything. Sometimes if I wait long enough, it returns to normal. If I logout using the keyboard commands and log in again, it seems okay, at least until the next occurrence.
I'm running 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx. I installed a kernel update a couple of weeks ago (2.6.32-29) but I've gone back to -28 in the hope that it would solve the problem. It has not. Is there a software package I need to reinstall or some other way to revert keyboard and mouse settings to defaults?
When I hit the "S" key it opens up the power menu up in the top right corner and when I hit the "M" key it opens up the mail menu on the top panel. How can I use these keys to actually type not open those menus.
I try to import a key from a keyserver when I add a repository to software sources, it just tries forever and times out. For instance, following the instructions here: [URL]... to add the key "CE49EC21" for the ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable. Whether I do it in the terminal:
Code: sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys CE49EC21 or by clicking the link on their page, I get nowhere. I've had this problem with other keys from keyserver.ubuntu.com too.
It suddenly occurred to me today that maybe my router is the problem. It has a draconian firewall built in. (For instance, it won't allow incoming bittorrent traffic without me explicitly opening ports.) So maybe, since I'm trying to receive a key, it's preventing the key from coming in? Does anyone know why I'm having this problem getting keys?
I setup keyed ssh between two of my computers on my lan. It was working great. I used Ubuntu's Passwords and Encryption Keys tool to generate the key.
Yesterday I tried rsync'ing a grip of files to the ssh server and couldn't get it to work, I figured I was just messing the rsync command up. Today I just tried to log in using ssh and it just hangs there after I type the ssh command.
With verbosity on it stops at checking the blacklist file. Does this mean it decided my key is one of the badly generated ones? Why would it decide this now I thought it was supposed to catch that when generating the key.
Also I just checked that file it's trying to check doesn't even exist. Should it?
I added a Romanian keyboard to the system. When I check the layout I see some keys have four characters associated with them. For example the key highlighted in the screenshot I attached has four characters: È™, È˜, ;, :. The first two can be used by pressing the key with or without Shift, but how about the other two?
I posted this in Networks but have had little luck in that forum lately...I haven't been able to connect via ssh to my media server at home. It's running Karmic (non-server version) and has sshd installed. I generated a rsa and dsa key pair and added them to the server in .ssh/authorized_keys and .ssh/authorized_keys2 by use ofcat key >> .ssh/authorized_keys(2)Changed sshd_config to only accept Keys and kept port 22, since I will port forward through router and make firewall exception down the line.I made an account on the server with the same name as my laptop. Here's output from ssh -v email@example.com

what purpose does it serve to use a passphrase? Once the keys are generated the passphrase isnt used? Or what am I missing??? I did not use a passphrase and understood that there was no security implications of not doing so. Is this correct?
So I have a very simple problem, or rather I thought it was going to be simple. I have a keyboard with some multimedia buttons. They are the standard ones, (Home, Browser, New Document, etc.) but at the moment they don't do anything. I would like to set it up so that Home executes 'dolphin ~', Browser opens Firefox, New Document opens Libre Office.
This was all very straight-forward in GNOME but I can't figure out how to in KDE (I am a relative newcomer to KDE). I went to System Settings->Shortcuts and Gestures and played around for awhile but to no avail . I've also tried DuckDuckGo-ing.
Situation is that there are two users on a Linux server- say A and B.A has been operating a shell script that in turn makes use of and exe file.The script and exe both are owned by user A.My problem is that I want user B to make use of the script and exe in exactly the same way user A does.So I have set suid bit of the script, exe and all the library files that the exe uses.But the exe is still not executing from user B.I did a man of chmod on Linux server and it gave an indication that SUID is disabled on new Linux servers.Now the question is, is there any other command that can perform the same task as SUID did on Unix.
So lately I've been playing searchandrescue and I think it's great, like a simpler version of Simcopter. But for some reason the key will stay on until I close the game, and occasionally after I close it. For example, if I hit m to check my map while the engine is revving up, it will stay on, and when I hit a button that requires typing, it will just be a bunch of m's. Or sometimes if I hit an arrow key it will stay on, then I'll exit the game and move up to the menu and the key will still be going, but when I hit the key again after the game is closed it will stop. Any ideas on this one? Once I figure out the command to start searchandrescue in the terminal I'll post the output when the bug occurs.
I am trying to reinstall ubuntu on my computer. I am now trying to create partition but I accidently created one that I do not want. Next to the name of the partition is a set of keys so I am guessing that it is locked. How do I remove that.
I generated RSA keys on Karmic, added the id_rsa.pub to the authorized_keys file on FreeNAS, then removed the id_rsa.pub from Karmic (this is a poorly documented but necessary step I learned).My Karmic username is shawn, FreeNAS username is shawnboy.from Karmic it prompts me for my RSA key passphrase which it should do, but after I enter it, it fails and moves on to prompt me for my password. I know this isn't a FreeNAS forum, but this works perfectly using Putty SSH with RSA keys on Windows XP, so I figure it's more appropriate to ask here than in FreeNAS forums.
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'm running a Toshiba Satellite laptop and am having trouble with the function or Fn keys. When running xev from the terminal I get no output for when I press the Fn key and I can't assign any keyboard shortcuts using it. However I'm still able to use some of the Fn+F# combos such as lock the screen or mute.
