Jan 3, 2011

Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.
This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update. I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?
Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1
I don't care if this is done in the bios or a kernel module or software. Is there any way at all to do make the 'fn' key act as 'control' and the 'control' key act as 'fn' in linux running on a macbook pro?
PS. You can do this with software in OSX with the application KeyRemap4MacBook.
When I use the down arrow on my new keyboard it also does and enter key as well. When I use the left and right arrow keys and hold them it doesn't keep going. It just clicks once and I have to pressing it over and over again. Any one know the correct settings to setup my keyboard? It's a Logitech Illuminated Keyboard.
I am using Samsung N150 and ubuntu 10.10 is installed in it. There is problem with brightness control i.e., I cannot control my brightness by up & down keys. I made settings such as:
I Add the repository to the sources list and enable it sudo add-apt-repository ppa:voria/ppa Perform complete system update sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade it may take long time depending the internet connection than I installed packages "samsung-backlight" and "easy-slow-down-manager" sudo apt-get install samsung-backlight easy-slow-down-manager
Also I made changes in brightness setting in during the boot i.e set to user control instead of automatic. But after doing all these stuff still my laptop brightness not control by fn + up/down keys.
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.
I have a testing application, under which I need to disable Ctrl-x and Few other keys...
My Problem is If i disable Ctrl Key using xmodmap command..All the other Ctrl combination are getting disabled...For ex: Ctrl-s, Ctrl-a etc..My goal is to enable some combination of Ctrl key and disabling some combination of Ctrl key..
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 could not find any way to enable dead keys on my keyboard on Lubuntu 10.04 via gui.I created xorg.conf by using X -configure command and tried to add followings into /etc/X11/xorg.conf but it did not work.
Yesterday, after browsing for a while, my keyboard suddenly started to show different characters than typed. The keys are just typing different letters than pressed. For example, the j displays a 1, the k displays a 2, and so on. This only happens on the x server. On the terminal, before starting the x server, the keyboard works just fine.
live in the German speaking part of Switzerland and therefore a Swiss German keyboardThere are only 3 different keyboard layouts: Switzerland, Switzerland eliminate dead keys/sun keysThe problem is: I desperately need the dead keys to type the be ?rall of the layouts have the dead keys eliminated so the only way is to use caps lock, but that's not all that great.
Everything has been fine until tonight - updates have always ran ok. Automatic update screen appeared tonight so ran it as usual.
Now the keyboard layout is all wrong, ie backspace key puts a 5 in rather than go back a space, enter key puts / and spacebar moves 2 spaces also numbers on the right are not correct despite number lock on as usual. What happened to the settings and how can reset keyboard settings.
After one of latest update I have problem with meta keys (like shift, ctrl and alt) in KDE. When I press one of this keys, it sometimes stays active after release and deactivates only after I press it again. It's annoying especially while I'm writing some code (php or html) and meta keys randomly stays active after release.
I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. All of a sudden several of my function keys stopped working and several keyboard shortcuts that I had setup involving function keys stopped working as well.
For example, when I go to preferences->keyboard shortcuts and try to set "Toggle fullscreen mode" to Alt+F11, the text "XF86AudioRaiseVolume" appears where it should just say "Alt+F11". Pressing Alt+F11 does nothing.
All of my function keys somehow got mapped to XF86AudioBlahBlah and no longer work. How do I undo this? I recently installed ffmpeg and gtk-recordmydesktop but I don't think I installed anything else.
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)
Code: # /etc/lirc/hardware.conf # #Chosen Remote Control REMOTE="Streamzap PC Remote" REMOTE_MODULES="lirc_dev streamzap"
I got Sun Type 5 Unix keyboard which uses mindin-8 connector, attached to a PC through a special adapter which converts it to USB. The keyboard's distinctive features are Control key in the middle row (swapped with Caps Lock which makes it a Unix layout - much more comfortable for the pinky) plus a whole bunch of extra Sun keys, including such useful ones as "Copy", "Paste", and volume control. (Sun Type 5 keyboard has very good feeling to its keys, much better than Type 7 one).Those extra keys work as expected with this adapter in Gnome on OpenIndiana (OpenSolaris previously), but aren't supported out of the box on Debian. Looking around I didn't find any good up to date tutorial how to enable them on Debian or any other Linux. Did anyone try to do it?
I found this:Software.openSUSE.orgIt's supposed to make G keys work and make them programmable, but i don't know if it'll work for G11 keyboard...Did anyone manage to get the G11 macros to work in Linux?I'm using openSUSE 11.2. 64 bit.I tried searching in YAST for some drivers or something, but couldn't find anything...
