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

Aug 19, 2011

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.

Fedora :: Rotate The Pen When Rotate The Screen?

Sep 7, 2009

how can I rotate the pen when I rotate the screen, and I would like to share this knowledge to other people who may have the same problem I had.

I have a tablet fujitsu-siemens t5010 with installed the wacum packages by default, and the pen was working, but couldn't rotate with xsetwacom command.

In Fedora 10, most guides refer to the wacom device as "stylus" which doesn't work on Fedora 11. I run command " $ xinput list " and I found the line

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5) eraser"id=3[XExtensionKeyboard]

and some lines before there is:

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5)"id=2[XExtensionKeyboard]
^^^^^^ this is the name of the device xsetwacom command needs! ^^^^^^^

I wrote first the line with the eraser cause I suppose that even someone has different wacom model, the eraser will be easy to find by grep command ( $ xinput list | grep -i eraser ), and common in most configures.

now , the edited script I use becomes like this:

#!/bin/sh
if [ $1 == 'normal' ]
then
xrandr -o normal
xsetwacom set "PnP Device (FUJ02e5)" rotate 0

[Code].....

It would be awesome if it chat could happened automatically , simply by rotating the screen, like it happens on Vista. I'll try to find out any solution and update this post if I make it !

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 :: 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 :: Rotate Desktop Workspaces In This Way Holding Down Ctrl-Alt Keys?

Jun 15, 2011

NOTE: compizconfig manager is not suitable for ubuntu 11.04 with unity,works fine with 9.10 and 10.10.

Ubuntu enables "Desktop Wall" by default. By holding Ctrl-Alt keys and pressing the left-arrow or right-arrow key each time, it slides through desktop workspaces horizontally for you to choose one to work on. Alternatively, you can change this to a "rotate cube" effect. Go To System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager.

Select "Desktop" from the left panel.
Tick "Rotate Cube".
Select "Enable Desktop Cube" as this plugin is required by "Rotate Cube".
Select "Disable Desktop Wall".

Immediately you can rotate your desktop workspaces in this way holding down Ctrl-Alt keys, EITHER press the left-arrow or right-arrow key OR left-click the mouse and drag it to left or right.

if there is no compiz manager in your system,download it.. type :sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager ..

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
REMOTE="Streamzap PC Remote"
REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev streamzap"

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.

Debian Multimedia :: GDM3 Login Screen Orientation

May 23, 2015

I want to set up the GDM login screen in vertical orientation = left = (xrandr -o 1) due to my monitor.

I used Ubuntu and the below method has been working until I switched to Debian8 now.

[URL] ....

Rotate login screen

If you have your monitors setup as you like (orientation, primary and so on) in ~/.config/monitors.xml and want GDM to honor those settings:

Code: Select all# cp ~/.config/monitors.xml /var/lib/gdm/.config/monitors.xml

However,

1 Debian Gnome3 does not create ~/.config/monitors.xml
2 according to dconf editor

the location is

/etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr/monitors.xml

and I tweaked, but no success.

[URL] .... method can be applied to GDM3 directory.

Since I have configured my x rortation only be xrandr command by shell init script, and never had configured by GUI setting, the monitors.xml was not created. When I done with GUI, the file is created as usual.

Then I copied to

/var/lib/gdm3/.config/monitors.xml

Finally works as expected.

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 :: Screen Goes Dark On Cube Rotate?

Dec 22, 2010

Just installed 11.04 (Natty). Graphics card is Radeon 9200When I enable Cube in the compizconfig settings manager and rotate the cube, the cube goes almost black. This happens with both drag and keyboard rotate. The background is fine. Everything is defaults and no other effects are enabled.Also, the entire screen goes dark when "opacity when not rotating" is set to anything but 100%.This worked fine with with my previous version 8.04, though I think it used a proprietary driver.Questions:Should I be using a proprietary driver this card? Apparently you have to install a long list of packages first: XFree86-Mesa-libGL libstdc++ libgcc XFree86-libs fontconfig expat freetype zlib

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panel Resizes Tasks With Left Orientation

May 8, 2010

I am using a widescreen monitor and prefer placing the panel on the left size. However, when there are more than 8 windows open at the same time, the window icons seemingly randomly shrink in size and form two columns. Selecting the windows on the panel takes several clicks and during each click the panel switches between the one column and two column states.

Server :: Changing CUPS Print Orientation?

Mar 2, 2010

In Windows printing I can take an 11 X 17 report, and tell the print manager to rotate and size. The job then prints (Xerox N40) aligned correctly.

Currently, even after telling the N40 it has ledger paper and switching it's orientation, my 11 X 17 reports print "down" the page rather than across.

Is it possible to tell CUPS to rotate the print job?
