Ubuntu :: Tab Key / Arrow Keys Not Working When On Firefox

Aug 14, 2010

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 :: 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.

Ubuntu :: Arrow Keys Not Working In Nano / Sort It?

Feb 16, 2011

When using nano in the terminal, I can't seem to navigate text using the arrow keys - everything I have read about nano says I should be able to do this.

My Ubuntu installation has no GUI, so I can't use the mouse for navigation.

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 :: 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 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.

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"

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 :: Firefox Tab And Arrow Navigation Have Ceased To Work?

Aug 19, 2010

As a preface, this is not an F7 carat mode problem.Firefox 3.6.8 in Lucid no longer is navigable with the keyboard.Up/Down arrows, PgUp/PgDown, Home/End, when the page is in focus, fail to scroll the window. TAB fails to switch between form fields on the page and in the toolbar (Example: Previously, CTRL-L to go to URL field then TAB into the search field would work. Now the CTRL-L works but TAB has no effect.)

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Wheel Scroll & Arrow Display?

Nov 20, 2010

Hi, very new to opensuse. I have 64bit 11.3 and its been working very well. My problem is that in Firefox: I have Firefox 3.6.12 when i scroll down using the mouse scroll wheel (not up?) most of the time, but not all the time i get horizontal lines instead of the "real picture". This also happens when i use my keyboard's down arrow key.

When i go slower it seems to happen less often. Also if i click off the page and back on again the display is fine. Is this problem my graphics card? Firefox? or my mouse/keyboard?

Hardware :: The Down Arrow Cursor Key Quit Working On Usb Keyboard Could Go Up, Or Left And Right, But Not Down?

Nov 30, 2010

Two days ago, the down arrow cursor key quit working on my usb keyboard. I could go up, or left and right, but not down. I figured the key was broke and pulled out a PS/2 keyboard and plugged it in. Problem seemed to be solved.This morning, the down arrow cursor key again was not working. I thought that was a weird coincidence, so I plugged in the old usb keyboard, and the down arrow cursor key was again working!

Fedora Hardware :: RIGHT ARROW / INSERT Accidental Keypress Stops Mouse Buttons From Working?

Here's a weird one. Once in a while I inadvertantly hit the key combination RIGHT-ARROW + INSERT on my keyboard while editing in Geany. This stops my mouse buttons from working and I have to kill xorg. Anyone heard of this before or how to fix it? I know I know, I should stop hitting those keys by accident, but it seems to happen at least once a day! This is on Fedora 12.

Ubuntu :: SSH Without Password Not Working With Keys

Dec 21, 2010

I have two machines at home. I am trying to setup the ssh server on the server machine so I can connect from the client machine with no password (keys authentication).Well, that shouldn't have been too hard, but the thing is the server user account I want to be able to connect to with keys auth has no password (that is actually the reason I want to setup keys auth). I have done everything in this guide (URL...), both alternatives, but with no success, because at some time I have to ssh the server to the user account that has no password (either with scp or ssh-copy-id) and it fails.

My question is: since I have root access on the server machine, can't I copy manually the public key from the client to the server? (doing manually what ssh-copy-id actually does).Or, maybe there is another way, to change the password on the passwordless account. I have tried with # su <acct>, then passwd, but it doesn't work (asks me for the old password). I was thinking about editing /etc/shadow manually, and inserting the hash in the password field for that account (it currently has an ! ). Would that work?

Ubuntu :: Most Keys Not Working In Mavrick ?

Jan 9, 2011

My setup is Asus EEE701SD running Maverick installed off the Live CD about 6 weeks ago. Everything worked fine until yesterday when I lost most of the keys, but not Ctrl, Alt, Home symbol, Menu symbol.

Keyboard is physically fine as it works correctly in SystemrecCD and when I boot into a recovery root shell, but not when I am running Xorg under Maverick. Keyboard layout is default US (I an in Australia). I tried using Onboard, but even that wouldn't input keystrokes into anything. I tried going in with VNC and that wouldn't work either. It seems this might be an Xorg problem, but why would it happen suddenly, seemingly without any provocation; obviously something has changed, but what... I have removed and reinstalled xserver--xorg using apt-get in a root shell and have also run dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg, but nothing has changed.

Ubuntu :: Control Keys Not Working In Some Programs?

Mar 19, 2010

control keys aren't working most of the time in Open Office. I can copy, cut and paste with the mouse, but Control+C/X/V/Z is not working at all. I also use intellij idea, there I have the same problem, but I can use its own defined control+alt+space. I've tried Abiword, the control keys worked at the begging but then after a while when I used control+something(C/X/V/Z), it always selected everything. Besides that, the control keys are working perfectly in nautilus, terminal, firefox, chrome, gedit. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.
