Ubuntu :: How To Disable Arrow Keys On Laptop

Jul 6, 2011

I am having a lot of problems with hitting the arrow keys while typing. At least, I think that's what it is. Maybe the page up/down/back buttons, too. Is there a way to disable one or more keys on the keyboard via software, other than going into BIOS? It's getting annoying having to retype stuff over and over. I guess maybe I'm just not used to my new keyboard, is all. But I never use those buttons and likely never will.

Ubuntu :: Scrolling Using Arrow Keys In Firefox?

Jan 30, 2010

When using firefox, if I use my arrow keys in the keyboard to scroll through the Window, it works only if the mouse pointer is inside the window. Otherwise, the scroll doesn't work. Is there any way to solve this problem?

It's not just the arrow keys, even the TouchPad scroll on my laptop also.

This is a weird problem I am facing right now. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Firefox 3.6.3. The tab key, the arrow keys and the page down / up keys dont work anymore. They're working fine in any other application, like Chrome.

The keys were fine till yesterday and suddenly they have stopped responding.

Ubuntu :: Remap Arrow Keys To Win+ijkl ?

Nov 20, 2010

How can I remap arrow keys to windows key + ijkl? I can do this easily in Autohotkey on windows, but I'm struggling on Ubuntu.

I'd really like the solution to work independently of whether I'm using a window manager or not, and to involve modifying as few files as possible; I work on a lots of different machines and am always building new ones, so would like to minimise reconfig effort.

I've tried to understand .Xmodmap, but couldn't make it work (was hard to find detailed docs on modifier keys). Am also considering win+hjkl!

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 Arrow Keys Locked In Gameplay?

Jan 2, 2010

Recently did a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.1. Great OS. One minor issue with the keyboard.

When playing games, both for Linux and through wine, the game will respond as if the up and left arrow keys are being constantly held down.

It acts like this in Cave Story (Linux version), Sonic Adventure DX Directors Cut: Demo A Version (Wine), and Star Trek Legacy (Wine).

This does not occur when using any non-game applications on my system, such as Open Office. This does not occur when using anything on the Internet, such as simply typing or Internet games.

Other Info, may or may not be helpful: Used ubuntu 8.04 previously, erased old ubuntu partition when upgrading. Arrow Keys responded fine for all applications listed above. Have a Microsoft Windows XP partition as well, only use it for applications that don't run in wine.

Fedora :: Left And Up Arrow Keys Not Working?

Apr 6, 2010

I just installed fc12 on a Dell Latitude E6500 laptop. Everything is fine except that my Left and Up arrow keys are inactive so .e.g. I can't review bash history.

In the "keyboard preferences" GUI the keyboard model is "evdev-managed keyboard" (although I have also tried without success the model specific for this laptop) and the only layout is "USA".

Have done an update of all packages without fixing this problem.

Ubuntu :: Stop Remote Simulating Keyboard Arrow Keys?

Oct 11, 2010

I have updated to 10.10 and now my ir remote is simulating keyboard arrow keys which is causing problems in applications like Boxee. The weird thing is if I stop lircd it still simulates the keyboard arrow keys.

Does anyone know how to stop the keyboard arrow keys from triggering when the ir remote up, down, left or right buttons are pressed?

(Here are all the IR config files)

hardware.conf

Code:
# /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

#Chosen Remote Control

Ubuntu :: Screen Orientation Switched / But How To Rotate The Arrow Keys

So, I have my trusty ol' Aspire One ZG5 running with Natty. I like changing the screen orientation (sideways) to read comic books and books. I've learned how by this page: URL...So, I have no trouble changing my screen orientation with a quick key-combo, but I still need help,I'm trying to figure out how to change the "orientation" of the arrow keys along with the screen. So when i have the screen oriented to the left, the left key works as the up, the up down as the right, etc.

OpenSUSE Install :: Arrow Keys Don't Work In GRUB

May 26, 2010

I bought a fancy new keyboard a couple of weeks ago, a Logitech illuminated one, and it works great in openSuSE 11.2 . . . after it's booted up. It's a dual boot system, however, and today I needed to get into Windows to do some CAD work, and couldn't! That's when I discovered that the arrow keys didn't work in GRUB. It's the particular keyboard, because I can plug the old one in and the problem goes away. Both are USB keyboards. And it must have something to do with loading a keyboard driver of some sort prior to the GRUB screen, because the new keyboard works fine once the bootup is completed. In fact, I've been using it for a couple of weeks now and didn't notice a problem until today.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Can't Boot From DVD - Arrow Keys Did Not Change The Boot Option ?

Jan 7, 2011

I am attempting to try install XUbuntu.

I loaded the dvd (one that came with Linux Format Magazine No. 139), changed BIOS to boot from dvd, and then:

I get the welcome screen with the options to boot Ubuntu, KUbuntu, XUbuntu or Boot from First Hard Disk. As I have an older laptop I was going to try XUbuntu. However, the arrow keys did not change the boot option. In fact nothing worked, Tab did not bring up a menu and Enter did not initiate boot.

I tried reloading the dvd, switching off the laptop (no way to shutdown) and restarting but always come up with the same problem.

My DVD drive works fine and the dvd appears not to be faulty since all the info is readable when it is loaded with windows running.

My system details are:

HP compaqnx9000
Mobile Intel Pentium(R) 4-m CPU 2.20 GHz 219GHz 704MB RAM
Optiarc DVD RW AD-7580A
Radeon 1GP 340M

Slackware :: Konsole Does Not Recognize Keypad Arrow Keys On Slackware 13.0 / Fix It?

Jan 18, 2010

Konsole does not respond to the following keys on my stand-along usb
keypad:
rightarrow,leftarrow,uparrow,downarrow,home,end,pageup,pagedown

Both of the other terminal emulators on slack do recognize
these keys (xterm and xfce terminal emulator).

I can also confirm that xev, if launched from konsole will recognize
these keys.

Konsole is my terminal emulator of choice and it is really nice to
be able to use my left hand for navigation and command retrieval.

Also, keypad arrows work in X apps.

Ubuntu :: How To Remap And Disable Keys

Feb 26, 2010

Just installed the Ubuntu for the first time and I have a problem. My keyboard's "a" key is faulty, it's acting like it's stuck, that is it is constantly typing aaaas so I had to disable it and reassign the letter "a" to another key. I did this quite easily in Windows with a program called KeyTweak...

Now that I started working in Ubuntu, the damn thing started acting just as it did under windows and it's constantly typing a all over the place, so I can't get any work done. How do I disable the key "a" and reassign "a" to another key(like q for instance)? Are there any programs for key remapping in Ubuntu or I'll have to do it manually? If so, how?

Ubuntu :: Command To Disable Repeat Keys?

Feb 6, 2010

Under System > Preferences > Keyboard Preferences there is an option to en/dis able "Key presses repeat when key is held down".

Is there by chance a command to en/disable this option? (edit: meaning a terminal, or 'run application' type command)

Seems a little far-fetched, but for how often I toggle this..

Ubuntu :: FN Keys Of Laptop Brightness Does Not Work

Jul 25, 2011

I have installed Xubuntu 11.04 on a HP Probook 4510S and the FN Keys of brightness only works when I on the login screen (gdm). Until I enter to my desktop the FN Keys stop Working. This is a XFCE Issue? I have another Laptop, a IBM THinkpad X40, with the same Xubuntu 11.04 and the FN Keys works perfect! Even the keyboard light Works! I think this is a ACPI related problem, I google it the problem with out a specific issue like this. The only thing that I can do it is use of xbacklight when I'm on my session.

Debian Hardware :: Bluetooth Keyboard Disable On Lock Keys

May 6, 2015

I've got myself a a Filco Majestouch Convertible 2 which is a USB/bluetooth keyboard.

When I use it in USB mode it works perfectly. I would like to use it in bluetooth mode and I've found that it has problems. When I hit either Numlock or Capslock it stops responding.

I'm running Debian Testing and it was last updated a few days ago (02/05/2015). I've tested the keyboard using Ubuntu 14.04 live cd and it worked flawlessly even hitting Numlock & Capslock didn't stop it.

If I run btmon to monitor the keyboard it shows that after I've hit capslock or numlock it still sends signals to the computer. So there is information being sent to the computer but these characters do not make themselves to my application. I'm just testing with a terminal window.

Here is the output from btmon whilst the keyboard is connected and working:

Hitting the 'a' character
a> ACL Data RX: Handle 35 flags 0x02 dlen 14 [hci0] 16.769645
Channel: 65 len 10 [PSM 19 mode 0] {chan 1}
a1 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ..........

[Code] .....

Here are the versions of software I'm using;

Code: Select allbluetooth                                                   5.23-2                                          all          Bluetooth support

Fedora :: F10, F11- Remap Keys ( Disable Caps Lock And So On With Xmodmap )?

Jun 20, 2009

In Fedora 10 they decided to change to "evdev", so if you used xmodmap in F9, these mapping have changed in F10 and F11 for that matter. In order to find the new key values start

Code:

xev and press a button you would like to know the keycode for. Write this value down. When done, make a file ".xmodmap" and put in the values. "man xmodmap" explains the format. Not easy to understand! So here is how mine looks like.

Code:
clear Lock
keycode 112 = Caps_Lock
keycode 118 = Delete
keycode 119 = Home

[Code]...

This layout is MUCH more logical than the original. Now Delete is the key just to the right of the Backspace key. Back spaces deletes to the left, and Delete deletes to the right, so these keys shoudl of course be next to each other Page Up, Page Down, Home, and End now have the same structure as the arrow keys below. This layout makes it much easier to navigate without looking at the keys, because now the layout makes sense And why shouldn't 0 be to the left of 1? of course it should. 0 is lower than 1.

Software :: XFCE Terminal Cannot Bind Shortcut Keys / How To Disable All Shortcuts?

Is there any way to disable shortcut keys in XFCE Terminal ? I can't seem to bind the shortcut keys, and F1 especially really gets in the way for some programs. Have no clue who thought it would be a good idea to bind F1 to a stupid help screen, when many terminal programs need this. I am using fluxbox, so maybe this has something to do with it.

Programming :: Multimedia Keys On Laptop - Special Control

Jan 14, 2011

I would like to use my multimedia keys on the laptop.

As I have seen in kde, they are recognized already, very good.

But I would like to use the play-pause, ffd, rwd and stop button in a special way.

After pressing one of them , a programm or script is called, which does:

a) determine the entries ( in a list ) of assigned applications to be controlles by this mm-buttons. ( The list can be edited, I decide to add vlc, amarok, flash plugin for firefox )

b) determine, which of the applications are running actually.

c) determine, which of this applications has the focus ( means, which of them ( if all more running ) is "the active one".

d) issue its shell command, which corresponds to the keyhit ( play, pause, fwd, rwd, stop )

Now my question : Is it all possible via shell/and or x-script?

If not, i will have to code something, i suppose.

Ubuntu :: Disable Only The Left Touchpad Button On Laptop?

Mar 23, 2010

What can I do to disable ONLY the LEFT touchpad button on my laptop? Left Click sticks by itself randomly, this causes problems when using my USB mouse (such as permanent dragging, permanent highlighting, permanent inability to left click anything, the computer is pretty much dead to me unless I try to tab around), it also causes issues with the Tap to Click, and it also causes Ubuntu to not recognize my "Left Handed" mouse button set up after boot for ONLY the touchpad. On the USB mouse, buttons work swapped.

Current solution: Left Handed Button Swap. Touch pad to click. Right touchpad button to right click. Sometimes I use my USB (which does recognize the swap). This is the 3rd install of vanilla Ubuntu (tried it just in case). That's not the issue. This is a Dell Inspiron 6000. I want to just disable the left button on ONLY the touchpad, I don't want this to affect my USB mouse. I want to keep the right button touch pad working. And of course I want my mouse to work. But, actually, my ideal is to sacrifice the left button, use Tap to Click, and use the right mouse button for right clicking. If I can't save the right click, can I disable both buttons?
