Red Hat / Fedora :: Basic Mouse And KBD Do Not Work But PC Remote Does
Mar 2, 2011
I have installed Fedora 13 on my system, that went smooth. After restart when I see the License, User creation screen, my normal MS usb Mouse and a MS Keyboard wont work. I have a IR remote which i use to control music >>> image attached. The mouse and kbd on this remote do work. What might be the reason?
I (finally!) have Mythtv working under 10.04. I use the Haupaugge DVB-T card with its remote. Whilst setting up the kit this worked OK. When I unplugged the keyboard and mouse the system prior to installing it next to the TV appeared to have stopped responding to the remote. In fact it seems to be responding to a number of the remote keys but not the OK and Go keys which isn't enough to run Mythtv.
I don't think leaving a keyboard & mouse plugged in is going to be domestically acceptable.
Does anyone have any ideas as to how to restore lirc functionality?
Alright, on my desktops I have always used a Microsoft basic USB optical mouse, as well as on my laptop. I recently bought a pack of three keyboards and three mice, and Squeeze hates the mice. Below is the connection output from both mice. The new mice will work for about a minute, disconnect, then reconnect. The older v1.10 mouse works flawlessly.
New Mouse: [ 2852.268048] usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using ohci_hcd and address 4 [ 2852.476163] usb 2-1: New USB device found, idVendor=045e, idProduct=0084
I'm trying to get a VB program to make a client connection to my PostgreSQL server running on an Ubuntu 10.10 server. Here's what I've done: Client side - installed and registered the OLE DB .dll's from the PostgreSQL OLE DB Provider project. server side - the configuration described here: [URL]... Have added this line to postgresql.conf:
listen_addresses = '*, 184.108.40.206, localhost' I've also tried this as simply: listen_addresses = '220.127.116.11, localhost' also, port = 5432 I have added the following to pg_hba.conf: # IPv4 local connections:
I have a marmitek x10 remote controller that I had been using in opensuse. However I decided to upgrade my distro to fedora 12. I setup everything that I need to for mythtv however Im unable to get the remote to work. IRW doesnt return anything yet I know the driver is working as irrecord picks up the input. here are the steps Ive followed...
1) I can see the usb device ok....
> lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 059b:027a Iomega Corp. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
2) I know it uses the atilibusb drivers, which Im able to prove by doing the following:
> irrecord -H atilibusb ~/lircd.conf
When I press keys on the remote I see the input is received on the screen.
3) I manually start lircd....
> lircd -H atilibusb
4) when I try irw, I dont get any output what so ever.......
I did modify my /etc/sysconfig/lirc however I had been trying gnome-lirc-properties to see if that could get it working, so Im not sure if its applied a wrong setting in the config file.
I have a 5 button mouse and the 4th and 5th buttons are useful for skipping back or forwards while surfing with Firefox. It would be nice if I could skip back in Nautilus too, but it doesn't work. (Alt+LeftArrow & Alt+RightArrow as keybord equivalent) Is there a possibility to use this buttons in Nautilus too?
Picked up a Linkskey KVM (LKU-UA02) from my brother for free, thought I'd put it to use. Works fine but after switching between each machine once, the keyboard/mouse does not work. Tried unplugging the device(s) and the KVM itself from each machine but no luck.Not a huge issue, but it would be nice to use the KVM (right now I have to use VNC to get a similar effect).
I have installed fedora ver 10 on my PC. The issue is that my mouse does not work once i login, it hardly works for 5-10 mins and then does not respond, however system does not get hung. I am using USB optical mouse. Please help me in fixing the issue.
recently i tried to install for the first time and everything booted up fine but when i got to the post install configuration my mouse and keyboard don't work! after that one time whenever i try to load linux it just sits at the boot screen where the colored bar goes left to right and has fedora text in the bottom right corner. i don't know if this matters or not but i'm dual booting with windows XP also i tried using a live cd of fedora 11 it always boots up to the login however just like above i can't use my mouse or keyboard for that one either.
Got myself in a bit of a squeeze here. I was messing around with the Xorg install on my Fedora 12 system. I ended up reinstalling it. Now my mouse and keyboard work fine in single user mode / terminal. But if I try and boot to X they dont work at the login screen. HAL and udev are booting. Ive done a udevadm monitor test in single user mode and its seeing the devices connect and disconnect. Ive also tried both USB and PS2 devices. Same issue. Ive tried playing with xorg.conf and generating it with Xorg -configure :1 I dont know to use to fix it. After banging my head against the wall for 20+ hours I decided it was time to ask for help. m just Lynxing around the web at the moment =X
I updated Lucid yesterday, and when I restarted the user interface was changed to a more simple feeling display. This makes me think I'm stuck in a "basic" mode or something. I attached a screen shot, but to give you an idea ill describe some issues. For one thing the minimize buttons are now on the right. The volume control, which used to appear on the top right of the screen, is gone and my multimedia volume control buttons on my Inspiron 1420 no longer work. Furthermore, the command terminal is now white and the keyboard shortcuts for copy and past don't work.
Immediately after updating I also got an error message at login (which also appears different and gives options on bottom of screen like gnome Failsafe) which said something like "gnome default power management installed incorrectly...". I followed the advice of a forum thread that involved the purge command and that seemed to remedy that message.
I downloaded the Fedora 11 KDE livecd, installed it, and after the reboot when I get to that "firstboot" screen, I can't move the mouse, the keyboard doesn't work, I have to hold down the power button to turn off the computer.
So, I have an ubuntu box (no keyboard/mouse), connected to a 1920x1080 TV on my wall which is usually used as a media center. Some times I want to do some maintenance work through the GUI so the obvious thing to do is have some kind of remote administration software like VNC. That is generally very laggy and I don't need a full remote administration because I already have a big TV in front of me, I just need to use my laptop's mouse and keyboard to control the linux box.
Is there any software that can do that? I would hate to have to run the android emulator software and run remotedroid on it.... so many wasted resources for a simple program. Any one know of an app that would let me do this that is made for linux? (specifically ubuntu)?
Windows 2008 R2 running on VMWARE, workstation 7.0, host machine is Ubuntu 64bit, latest release. Have clients connecting via LTSP using Remnote Desktop Connection. I tried several options for RDC like -a 16 for 16 bit graphics, but to no avail.What can I do, to have a better Remote Desktop environment? One thing I have not done, is install the Xserver Via Chrome Custom X server on the LTSP server?
I've bought this remote control that sais it works in Vista, XP etc. without any driver. Basically it has a bunch of buttons that replace the mouse and a bunch of others that replace basic keyboard functions (arrows, enter, escape). It has a USB IR receiver so I thought I could simply use it as a lirc remote in Ubuntu.
However, it sais absolutely nothing on it except for "PCremote" so during lirc installation I have no idea what to choose. And, interestingly, I accidentally discovered that it works in Ubuntu, too, out of the box. Controlling the mouse and acting like a keyboard. Is there a way I can forfeit current functionality and just get it to work as a customizable lirc remote? Or even better, keep current functionality but change it only for certain apps (xbmc, vlc etc)?
I have custom built Linux kernel (2.6.31) and also xorg. xorg is using xserver 1.7.3 . I have an application which simulates the mouse and sends mouse move events. When I switch the device on, the system boots and Xorg comes up, I can see X cursor on the system. When I start sending mouse move events from the application, the cursor do not move. If I attach mouse to the device and then move the mouse, from this point onwards the mouse events get detected from the simulation application. I have checked the dmesg log as follows
BEFORE MOUSE CONNECTED. ..... kjournald starting. Commit interval 5 seconds EXT3 FS on hdb4, internal journal EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with writeback data mode.
I have install fedora11 live and the mouse work well when installing.When you reboot the mouse works ok until the welcome screen apears then the mouse stops working and I cannot continue with the postinstall. I have a 1TB usb externalHD that I am installing fedora11 and have partitioned it so that I have 500Gb free for fedora, system is doucore 2.4,4gb RAm, I tryed doing this with three differend mice and connectting the mouse to different usb ports
I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.
Biggest one that make game unplayable is mouse. Mouse isn't moving smooth it jumps around. I cannot shoot anything. So i asked for help, and everybody just say install windows. And where is fun in that. If people when ever run into problem with some software on linux just install windows. Linux would never go forward. I m not some great gamer, but i would like to be able to play this game. Probably somebody run into same problem. I sow that people talk about something like dis on WOW and wine but simptoms doesn't seem same to me.
I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.
From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?
