I try to import a key from a keyserver when I add a repository to software sources, it just tries forever and times out. For instance, following the instructions here: [URL]... to add the key "CE49EC21" for the ppa:mozillateam/firefox-stable. Whether I do it in the terminal:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys CE49EC21 or by clicking the link on their page, I get nowhere. I've had this problem with other keys from keyserver.ubuntu.com too.
It suddenly occurred to me today that maybe my router is the problem. It has a draconian firewall built in. (For instance, it won't allow incoming bittorrent traffic without me explicitly opening ports.) So maybe, since I'm trying to receive a key, it's preventing the key from coming in? Does anyone know why I'm having this problem getting keys?
I've been getting the following for well over 2 months now and this is really really irritating: Code: Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --secret-keyring /etc/apt/secring.gpg --trustdb-name /etc/apt/trustdb.gpg --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv 1781BD45C4C3275A34BB6AEC6E871C4A881574DE gpg: requesting key 881574DE from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com gpg: keyserver timed out gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error For any bloody key, it times out?
Ubuntu's keyserver page just brings back a default it works page. Is there a way to manually search or enter keys here, since this page seems to not have been completed? Doesn't look like this page will be completed either last edit date on this page is Tue 06 Oct 2009 05:49:36 AM CDT
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?
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
When I hit the "S" key it opens up the power menu up in the top right corner and when I hit the "M" key it opens up the mail menu on the top panel. How can I use these keys to actually type not open those menus.
I setup keyed ssh between two of my computers on my lan. It was working great. I used Ubuntu's Passwords and Encryption Keys tool to generate the key.
Yesterday I tried rsync'ing a grip of files to the ssh server and couldn't get it to work, I figured I was just messing the rsync command up. Today I just tried to log in using ssh and it just hangs there after I type the ssh command.
With verbosity on it stops at checking the blacklist file. Does this mean it decided my key is one of the badly generated ones? Why would it decide this now I thought it was supposed to catch that when generating the key.
Also I just checked that file it's trying to check doesn't even exist. Should it?
I added a Romanian keyboard to the system. When I check the layout I see some keys have four characters associated with them. For example the key highlighted in the screenshot I attached has four characters: È™, È˜, ;, :. The first two can be used by pressing the key with or without Shift, but how about the other two?
I posted this in Networks but have had little luck in that forum lately...I haven't been able to connect via ssh to my media server at home. It's running Karmic (non-server version) and has sshd installed. I generated a rsa and dsa key pair and added them to the server in .ssh/authorized_keys and .ssh/authorized_keys2 by use ofcat key >> .ssh/authorized_keys(2)Changed sshd_config to only accept Keys and kept port 22, since I will port forward through router and make firewall exception down the line.I made an account on the server with the same name as my laptop. Here's output from ssh -v email@example.com

what purpose does it serve to use a passphrase? Once the keys are generated the passphrase isnt used? Or what am I missing??? I did not use a passphrase and understood that there was no security implications of not doing so. Is this correct?
So I have a very simple problem, or rather I thought it was going to be simple. I have a keyboard with some multimedia buttons. They are the standard ones, (Home, Browser, New Document, etc.) but at the moment they don't do anything. I would like to set it up so that Home executes 'dolphin ~', Browser opens Firefox, New Document opens Libre Office.
This was all very straight-forward in GNOME but I can't figure out how to in KDE (I am a relative newcomer to KDE). I went to System Settings->Shortcuts and Gestures and played around for awhile but to no avail . I've also tried DuckDuckGo-ing.
So lately I've been playing searchandrescue and I think it's great, like a simpler version of Simcopter. But for some reason the key will stay on until I close the game, and occasionally after I close it. For example, if I hit m to check my map while the engine is revving up, it will stay on, and when I hit a button that requires typing, it will just be a bunch of m's. Or sometimes if I hit an arrow key it will stay on, then I'll exit the game and move up to the menu and the key will still be going, but when I hit the key again after the game is closed it will stop. Any ideas on this one? Once I figure out the command to start searchandrescue in the terminal I'll post the output when the bug occurs.
I am trying to reinstall ubuntu on my computer. I am now trying to create partition but I accidently created one that I do not want. Next to the name of the partition is a set of keys so I am guessing that it is locked. How do I remove that.
I generated RSA keys on Karmic, added the id_rsa.pub to the authorized_keys file on FreeNAS, then removed the id_rsa.pub from Karmic (this is a poorly documented but necessary step I learned).My Karmic username is shawn, FreeNAS username is shawnboy.from Karmic it prompts me for my RSA key passphrase which it should do, but after I enter it, it fails and moves on to prompt me for my password. I know this isn't a FreeNAS forum, but this works perfectly using Putty SSH with RSA keys on Windows XP, so I figure it's more appropriate to ask here than in FreeNAS forums.
my laptop has a numberpad on the right side. on it, the 7 key is home, and the 1 key is end. the normal home and end keys above it work, but these do not. is there a way I can map the home and end functionality to them?
I'm running a Toshiba Satellite laptop and am having trouble with the function or Fn keys. When running xev from the terminal I get no output for when I press the Fn key and I can't assign any keyboard shortcuts using it. However I'm still able to use some of the Fn+F# combos such as lock the screen or mute.
Just installed the Ubuntu for the first time and I have a problem. My keyboard's "a" key is faulty, it's acting like it's stuck, that is it is constantly typing aaaas so I had to disable it and reassign the letter "a" to another key. I did this quite easily in Windows with a program called KeyTweak...
Now that I started working in Ubuntu, the damn thing started acting just as it did under windows and it's constantly typing a all over the place, so I can't get any work done. How do I disable the key "a" and reassign "a" to another key(like q for instance)? Are there any programs for key remapping in Ubuntu or I'll have to do it manually? If so, how?
I want to fix this annoying thing with ppa keys broken. There was a script named launchpad-update that used to do that for you, but everything I find is for pre karmic. Is there any alternative to that script? Any way to do it manually? Some programs I installed are not getting updated and I'm having to add new ppas manually..
I am using an Apple Keyboard (DK-layout) on my PC running Ubuntu 10.4. The problem: My key used to type <, > and is swapped with the key used to type and If I connect a standard PC-keyboard with DK-layout using USB, it works just fine. The problem exists both in the console and X. I solved the problem in the console by installing the console-keymaps package, made a copy of dk-latin1.kmap.gz and swapping keycode 86 with keycode 41 and loading the new keymap with the loadkeys command. I only need to figure out how to load the new keymap at boot time.
However, in X, I want to do exactly the same. I suppose I have to use Xmodmap. I simply can't figure out how to do it.
I've upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 a few days ago.Sometimes when I am typing on (USB) keyboard random key starts to repeat, as if I am holding it down (but I am not). Repetition stops when I press some other key. This is happening randomly. Sometimes 3 times in 5 minutes, sometimes once in 2 hours. I feel like it's load dependent (it occurs more often under higher load).Does anyone have idea how to get rid of it? It is really annoying.I have tried several keyboards to prove it is not hardware issue.
I recently put Ubuntu on my HP G series laptop that originally had Windows Vista and ever since some select function keys (i.e. dim/brighten display) and the num lock/num pad won't work. Why is this and can I fix it?
