Apr 17, 2011

General :: Re-mapping Non-standard Keys To Modifier Keys?

Apr 7, 2011

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

Ubuntu :: Weird Keys Mapping In X Session?

Apr 9, 2010

I've just upgraded my installed software packages to last version of Lucid and noticed a weird issue: my keyboard keys are all messed up. Although my keyboard layout is still US-105 keys, when I press (for instance) "asdfg", I get "abfhj" and for "ASDFG" I get "1a1b1f1h1j" !? This only happens when I am logged as user in a X session. Root sessions are OK

Debian Multimedia :: Re-mapping Function And Multiedia Keys

Dec 10, 2014

I have a Logitech K830 wireless 'Living Room' keyboard for general use under Debian/Gnome. The function keys (F1-F12) operate in conjunction with the FN key. Various multimedia options are alternately available by pressing the function keys (F1-F12) without the FN key.

I want to make the function keys primary (not requiring FN). 'xmodmap -e "keycode 172 = F11"' reassigns F11 as expected, but xev reveals multicode output for some keys that I cannot similarly remap. The (de-tabulated) table shows xev output for press-events. Single F(n) keycodes are followed by the equivalent multimedia keycodes (e.g. F2[+FN] key is also 'Minimize window'[without FN]).


FN+F1 0x0167 0xffbe, F1
Adjust backlight ---- -- ------, --

FN+F2 0x1068 0xffbf, F2

Debian Hardware :: Dell XPS L702X - 3 Touch Keys Mapping

Apr 12, 2014

I have a Dell XPS 17 L702X running vanilla Wheezy. The laptop has 3 special soft touch keys above the keyboard. Using Dell software in Windows you can configure these for whatever, but in Debian/Linux they share the same functions as keyboard keys.

Key 1 -> Super_L Q
Key 2 -> Brightness Down
Key 3 -> Doesn't seem to do anything and xev doesn't report any key codes

Apparently other XPS models have similar keys with the same problem. It's not a show stopper but it would be nice to have them working.

Security :: Mapping Authorized Keys Enrty To Sshd Process?

Dec 19, 2010

When a user that has rsa public key set in ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file logs in via ssh an sshd process is started to handle the ssh session.Periodically we audit the authorized keys and remove them from the system and authorized_keys file. This means the next log in attempt will fail, which is fine.However we need to terminate current ssh sessions in progress that use the rsa key.I have not been able to determine a way to map sshd processes with authorized_keys entries.

General :: F3 - F5 Keys Incorrectly Behaving As Audio Keys / Remap Them To Original Meaning?

Apr 17, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Lubuntu And Mini Don't Mix?

Sep 7, 2010

my first go around with LXDE has been miserable. I got every machine I've had my hands on working great with KDE, Gnome (both in netbook too), and XFCE. however I decided to get as light as possible with my netbook after this glorious Lucid upgrade (I hate to change when I've got it how I want... but it was time for a LTS) and try Lubuntu.

So here's the snag. I have a HP mini 110 1125NR and travel very often, and speed is sometimes of the essence, and because for the netbook I don't need all the eye candy yet and want something fast. I got Lubuntu for it's built-in netbook interface and got the install fine (in safe graphics of course).... and I don't like any build I've seen with the Chromium OS except maybe Hexxah's Flow so I'm sticking to debian

Now, install went great and I'll modify things later, but I cannot seem to get past the BIOS boot, it sits there with a black screen with the cursor (solved with UNE by editing GRUB temporarily).... but nothing I've tried yet has worked, or I did it wrong...

Ubuntu :: Switching To Lubuntu Via Installing It?

Mar 16, 2010

Thinking of uninstalling GNOME/ubuntu-desktop and installing LXDE/lubuntu-desktop in its place. Just a couple of Qs. Got some hunches, just want to confirm/deny them:

* Does LXDE use GDM for login, or something else?

* Installing lubuntu-desktop would uninstall network-manager. Need to reboot if I do this, I take it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Getting The Lubuntu USB Without Bootloader?

Jun 24, 2010

I recently installed Lubuntu to a USB. It was up and running and worked fine, however, upon exiting and going to boot into windows, I noticed it had installed a GRUB bootloader. I use whole disk encryption on windows, which has its own bootloader, so I can't be having some other bootloader on the PC interfering with this. I used my rescue disk to restore my WDE bootloader, but the USB stick will not boot now.

I also tried using pendrivelinux but this copies the live cd version onto the USB stick and nothing saves when you log off.installing Lubuntu to USB without a boot loader?

Ubuntu :: Ssh Key With Gnome-keyring In Lubuntu ?

Oct 20, 2010

I'm trying Lubuntu for my low-resource netbook and I'm lovin' it.

But I can't get my ssh key passphrase work with the keyring manager.

I even created a new user account with a fresh home directory and it doesn't work. You run "ssh myname@mydomain.net" and it prompts you for the key passphrase in the terminal.

Expected behavior: with Gnome, you run "ssh myname@mydomain.net" and the password manager opens a GUI to ask for the passphrase. Once unlocked, it remains unlocked until you log off. Moreover, at that moment of unlocking you can tell it to remember the passphrase forever so it gets automatically unlocked next time you login.

The keyring works fine for the wireless password, and for luks-encrypted volumes, but not for Secure Shell keys.

I'm using Ubuntu Lucid, installed lubuntu-desktop package, using gdm session manager, all updated.

Ubuntu :: Add A Swap Partition To Lubuntu?

Jan 19, 2011

I have a live/persistent installs of Lubuntu 10.04 on a USB-HDD. It's on a 320 GB portable drive. I've partitioned it so that 80 GB is for the Lubuntu live install and the remaining 240 GB is another partition dedicated to storing stuff. So this USB-HDD is doing double duty. The thing is, I was paying so much attention to making the persistent install work without making a mess of the boot loader (I did that in the past; twice!) that I had overlooked the fact my live install does not have a swap sartition on it. I just assumed (incorrectly) that the swap partition on would just be part and parcel of the installation. Can anyone tell me of a way to add a swap partition to each of my live installs? Without losing any data or anything like that. It's probably not doing any harm not having a swap partition, but I'm assuming that my live install would be that much more efficient with it.

Ubuntu :: Lubuntu Live Cd Won't Start Into The Gui?

Jun 24, 2011

I bought a magazine because it said it had lubuntu on its disk. <i popped it into a computer(laptop) to try it, but lubuntu for some reason only goes into the first shell. It will switch o the othr shells, but the desktop one stays blank(or rather black)Xubuntu and the other buntus on the cd however work allright in their live mode, and fedora from another live cd that was on the magazine also works fine(in fact I am using it right now)why lubuntu isnt working but the other ones are? could it be a manufacturing fault or are there underlying issues?

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile PM965/GM965/GL960 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)
00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0c)

well I see that it works with my normal computer so it probably isnt a cd error, but rather it seems to be a gnome load issue? But why wouldnt it load when the other buntus have no problem loading it?
