Ubuntu Multimedia :: KeyTouch Looks Fine But Media Keys Don't Work
Jan 2, 2011
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.
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 wanted to try out Aqualung, and I like the program, but with one big drawback: the media keys at the top of my keyboard don't work with it. Is there something that needs to be done to enable those keys, or is this a bug with the program or my computer?
I've seen a couple of unsolved topics on this while researching, but they're all old and I'm hoping somebody's found a solution by now.My laptop has the following keys that I want to assign as global hotkeys to VLC Media Player so that I can use them for... well, for their intended purpose:
Updated Ubuntu 10.04. Amarok 2.3.0. Dell Inspiron 1526.My laptop has next, previous, and play/pause buttons that I would like to work with Amarok. Amarok's default configuration appears to globally map these buttons exactly as I would like. Amarok calls the buttons Media Next, Media Previous, and Media Play. If I specify a custom mapping and hit the button, it maps the Media Next, Media Previous, and Media Play as expected. (And indeed if I try to some other command to this, Amarok warns me that it's multiply defined.) Clearly Amarok is capable of seeing these inputs.
However, they simply don't work. Outside of setting a custom key, Amarok does not respond to them, even if Amarok has focus. If I change the mapping from Global to Shortcut, they still don't work.I found some online discussions about this, but all appear to be Amarok 1.x era. The configuration settings appear very different and not relevant.Can anyone suggest on how to get these buttons working in my Amarok?
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 don't get any sound from my left speaker. With my headphones plugged in though I get sound in both speakers. I've upgraded my Kernel to .36. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I'm on an MSI A7200 which is a great laptop but apparently a very rare one. There's like no info on it at all on the internet.
I have tried two different keyboards on 3 distros (Xubuntu, LM 10, LM 9) and I run into the same problem.I the volume (+/-) & mute buttons always work upon login and sometime into the session they just stop working. There seems to be no logic what kills it. The audio , mixer and volume applications work fine just the key bindings somehow get broke. Other key bindings have no issue.
So I downloaded the HD version of Person of Interest: [URL] It has h264 video and AVC audio contained within a Matroska file. For some reason I can't get it to play in either Totem or mplayer, even though I've been able to play other Matroska files fine in both of them. Totem does nothing but display a black window. gmplayer displays a blue screen and there's a silouette where the control buttons are supposed to be. Also it takes about 20 seconds to close it. When I try to get the properties on it, it says "Creating properties window. You can cancel this operation by clicking cancel." and it won't show the properties no matter how long I wait.When I try to run it in mplayer from the command line, it says a bunch of these:
All at the same hex location, but with seemingly random "nal sizes." Then it ends with this: Too many audio packets in the buffer: (4097 in 1648030 bytes).Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.
I use Ubuntu 10.04 32 bits and I have one keyboard Logitech Comfort Wave 450 with some multimedia keys (PLAY/PAUSE, VOLUME UP/DOWN, MUTE,.This multimedia keys works well in Rhythmbox but in Qmmp and Audacious2 doesn't. I explain this: Start my Gnome session. I open Qmmp/Audacious with one playlist charged, I press PLAY/PAUSE in my keyboard, but Qmmp/Audacious doesn't play. Close Qmmp/Audacious. I open again Qmmp/Audacious and now, when I press PLAY/PAUSE, it works! It also works if I open Rhythmbox before to open Qmmp/Audacious.
I recently install a Debian 8.0 Jessie on a Laptop Dell latitude E6540 with gnome 3.14+3. But the problem is that it doesn't recongnize my multimedia buttons, I tried some methods but I didn't get results.
When I put a blank rewritable media in the drive no icon appears on the desktop and if I try to burn an iso image, for example, with the option that the right finds no brasero asks to insert media and some in the unit. Another problem is that brasero leaves the locked drawer of the unit for a few minutes after erase dvd-rw media. Is there any solution to these two problems?
Has anyone had experience building a dedicated multimedia center? I know Its going to be ubuntu based and probably run xbmc. I've seen a pc case to use but I dont know if the remote control for it can work under ubuntu or any other distro. Has anyone had success making a remote control for an ubuntu based media center work?
I'm not to sure this is the place I should post this, but couldn't find any place for it to fit. So here is the deal..I am running 10.10 with the standard LAMP setup. I am running a drupal 7 site no problems. What I need to do is run a multi site sub directory. (domain.com/newsite). So far the best I can do is get a directory index of the second site (domain.com/newsite), but cant run the installer. (I did the symbolic link to the doc root of the drupal install.)If I type in the url domain.com/newsite/install.php I get not found. I placed an index.html test page and it renders fine. I think I'm close but just not there yet.
Any ideas from anyone? I can get Sobdomains to work fine on a test mache, but sadly I need the domain/site to work due to lack of DNS support at the moment. I tried to get some info from the drupal forum, but everything always points to subdomin setups. I also posted over there, but it seems like the forums have very little support and are a bit on the slow side.
Ubuntu10.10.i want a media player with all media codecs.it should able to play all formats of videos and audios so please suggest me a media player.(i used km player in windows i want a media player like that)
I've got 9.04 and 9.10 both installed on the same machine. The /home directory is on a separate partition, so both OSes use the same /home.I can't get Compiz to work at all in 9.10, even though it's been perfectly fine in 9.04. Is there a backport of some sort that i should install?The fixes I've found all point to editing the xorg.conf file, but of course, Karmic doesn't have an xorg.conf file.I've tried reinstalling the Compiz files, reinstalled the open-source video drivers, installed/uninstalled fglrx drivers a few times, rebooted dozens of times.
I wonder if someone might be able to help with a webcam problem I'm having (or point me in the direction of a previous thread on the subject?). I'm trying Xubuntu on my wife's elderly Dell Inspiron 1100 laptop. It's working beautifully for the most part. But I've tried two different usb webcams, both of which are recognized by Cheese but don't work in Skype.
In Skype, what happens is that Skype is aware that a webcam is present. It does NOT say "no webcam detected". But in Skype Options, when I visit the Options for "Video Devices", and click on the "Test" button to test the webcam, nothing happens at all.
And when I make a test video call to a friend, with video turned on, all the friend sees is a black screen where the image should be, and a little turning symbol presumably to indicate "please wait for image to appear". It never appears.
As far as I can tell, I have all the applicable applications and plugins (for this, Debian 5.0.6 installation). I type in Code:about:plugins in either iceweasel or epiphany browser and get a list that includes:
Code: Installed plugins Find more information about browser plugins at mozilla.org.
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.
