Debian Hardware :: Keyboard Status LEDs Non-functioning In X

Aug 8, 2014

My keyboard status lights (Caps Lock, Num Lock, Scroll Lock) are non-functioning when in an X environment. The lights turn on and off as would be expected at the terminal.

xset can turn on the scroll lock, but but not the Caps or Num Lock.
numlockx can toggle the Num Lock light.

The functions of the keys on the keyboards works normally, it's just the lights don't update accordingly.

I have already run dpkg -reconfigure keyboard-configuration to no avail. and this is the information that /etc/default/keyboard has about my keyboard

Code: Select all$ grep -vE "^#|^$" /etc/default/keyboard

The keyboard itself is a Corsair K70, if that matters.

Debian :: Power Button On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jun 27, 2015

I recently upgraded to Jessie and am using the LXDE desktop. I like using the keyboard power button to shutdown the system but it does not work. I looked at /etc/acpi and everything appears okay to my untrained eyes, but there is obviously something not working correctly. Do I need to edit some config file or install some code in order to use the power button for shutdown ? When I look at Services Settings I see that acpid power management is selected.

Fedora Hardware :: Keyboard Randomly Stops Functioning?

May 19, 2011

Im Using FC14 and i like it so far. been trying around a bit and made searches for my problem but either im blind or im the only one with this problem (which i doubt) i have a problem of the keyboard "dying" on me mid using it. it doesnt seem to matter what im doing, it still goes dead on me sporadicly. ive tried changing to 4 different keyboards. PS2 and usb keyboards. but all 4 keeps sporadicly dying on me until i reboot and it works again until its wondering if the problem is in the hardware detection somewhere..if you need hardware information it would be nice if you posted commands so i understand what you need

Ubuntu :: Caps Lock Indicator On Keyboard Not Functioning

Jul 17, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04. The Caps lock indicator on my keyboard is not working (always off). The Num lock indicator works fine. I have the same problem with other keyboards. The other keyboards work with Windows & DOS. This isn't a show-stopper, but I'd like to get it corrected as it's problematic when typing in passwords, etc. that have hidden fields.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Keyboard And Mouse Stop Functioning With ODT Docs

Nov 3, 2010

Keyboard and sometimes mouse stops functioning whilst using oowriter - it only happens with writer. I lose control for up to 30 secs and then it comes back - but it keeps happening. This is on a 10.10 machine with standard install. I have changed keyboard from wireless to wired and back to wireless with new batteries. I have uninstalled Office, rebooted and re-installed but it is still happening on native odt docs. Is this a common recent issue?

General :: Stuck At Log In Screen With Mouse And Keyboard Not Functioning

Mar 26, 2011

I am COMPLETELY new to Linux.I started a computer class recently and I started teaching myself PERL.My teacher had mentioned to me that it's far better for some reasons (he did not elaborate) to write code in a Unix system. So I got Ubuntu 10.10.I installed it along side my windows 7.After I setup my windows (had to reformat the disk) I decided to boot up into Ubuntu to set that up. I installed the necessary drivers that it required, and the updates. I was asked to restart the system so I did so.

It did not even shut down or restart my system.I waited patiently 15 minutes...30 minutes 1 hour... until I finally decided to hit the reset button on my PC. Then when I'd boot back in to Ubuntu afterwards, it would stay at the log in screen and my mouse wouldn't budge and nor is my keyboard recognized by Ubuntu.Im really frustrated and I've been searching for answers for the whooole day and I just can't seem to find something well explained. Im completely new to Ubuntu so I don't know where to enter any code in a cmd line or such.

1)Reformatted my harddrive to install windows 7 on it
2)Set up windows 7 and then booted into Ubuntu.
3) Set up Ubuntu and installed necessary drivers and updates
4) Reset the computer and waited for an hour for the reset to happen but nothing happened.
5) Manually reset my pc and booted into ubuntu
6) Stuck at log in screen with mouse and keyboard not functioning (unable to use ubuntu).

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts - Make Disappeared Status Bar Appear?

Feb 11, 2011

I am using VNC viewer to remotely access a Linux machine. The problem is when I accessed it, I pressed a button which caused the status bar to disappear (containing menus such as 'Application', etc).

Then I couldn't get it again, even the title bar of Eclipse disappeared and I couldn't find any way to restore it. Even terminal is not getting opened.

Debian Configuration :: Ice Weasel Stops Functioning

Mar 28, 2011

I found that in many occasions ice weasel browser stops functioning (not responding) and the only way out is by killing the process.secondly, the process ID is actually firefox!! and no ice weasel process, cause ice weasel is just another name to firefox; and this stopped me from installing firefox.Unfortunately, when I used Konqueror which comes with every linux distro, it gave the same problem.

If you do, please let me know what sound card you're using. I'm beginning to think its the driver. All kinds of weirdness in early bootspace and also alsactl init fails with a missing init directory for the device.

I'm on a Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE and it's completely non-functional. I've seen bugs reported with the audigy LS but never the SE.

Ubuntu :: How Do I Get LEDs On Adapter Working

Apr 18, 2010

have no way of knowing if I am connected to my wireless network. The straw that broke the Camel's back was last night when for one reason or another, the connection was dropped, and I had no way of knowing it. I messed around for 3 1/2 hours changing software settings, and running in circles. I finally decided to just reboot the system, and the connection came back.I still had no way of knowing that.

Had the LEDs on my notebook adapter been working, I could have saved myself hours of frustration and aggravation.I am still so ticked off over that, I'm to the point that if this can not be corrected, this may very well be the end of my using Linux.I assume this problem will arise from the adapter card. I took screen shots of everything.Note all of the blank spaces that when clicked on, display LEDs, and nothing more, (led1.jpg)I have taken a screen shot of the properties of each of those entries, (led_properties.jpg).how do I get the LEDs on my adapter working so I know when there is a connection, and when data is being transmitted and received?

Debian Configuration :: WLAN Does Not Work (squeeze) / Ceased Functioning?

Ubuntu :: Rhythmbox Makes Peripheral Device LEDs Blink

Oct 29, 2010

I've encountered a very strange bug in Rhythmbox 0.12.8 on my Ubuntu 10.04 install. For some reason, anytime I have Rhythmbox running, all 3 LEDs on my Nostromo n52 gaming device blink, slightly faster than 1 blink per second (or a little over 60 Hz).The blinking does interfere with use of the n52. While the blinking occurs, only about half of my n52 keypresses get through.I guess Rhythmbox is sending signals via USB somehow. Anyone else noticed this bug?

General :: A Keyboard Shortcut For The "status Menu" In GNOME 3

Jul 17, 2011

Is there a keyboard shortcut, or can a keyboard shortcut be defined, to open the GNOME 3 "status menu" (the one in the upper right corner with your name on it that you use to log out, restart or shut down the machine)?

I want to be able to reboot or shut down the machine without using the mouse. In GNOME 2 I could do Alt+F1 and a short arrow key sequence, and now I want something similar.

Terminal is not an option - the GUI already has the necessary permissions and I want to take advantage of that, not sudo shutdown -h.

Ubuntu :: Twitter Status / Update Pidgin Status In Lucid

Jul 5, 2010

I have just upgraded to Lucid on Ubuntu. I am a long time Pidgin user. I tried using Empathy with Gwibber, but I can't get Gwibber to update my IM status(es) in Empathy, so I want to go back to using Pidgin. (Additionally, I can't get Skype to work with Empathy.)I installed pidgin-microblog and pidgin-mbpurple, and they allow me to view my Twitter feed in Pidgin and update my Twitter status in Pidgin. However, in Karmic, I was also able to specify certain "status availabilities" (one named "Twitter-Available" and one named "Twitter-Away", for instance) to have the IM status message for these statuses become populated with my Twitter feed. This capability seems missing in pidgin-mbpurple in Lucid (and it seems to be the only thing missing from Karmic).

Is there a way to have pidgin-mbpurple update certain "status availabilities" in Lucid (and I'm just missing something) or is this no longer possible?Equivalently, is it possible to have Gwibber update my status message in Empathy? (I just want to be able to update my status once on one of my three computers - and have it propagate to all my other accounts (IM and social networking) and computers).

Debian :: Security Status Of Web Browsers

Dec 16, 2015

In the Release Notes for Jessie, it is stated that webkit browsers do not receive security updates in a timely manner and so are not secure. It is recommended that one uses a gecko-based browser or Chromium for 'general' web browsing. Yet I haven't read anything about this elsewhere and I'm guessing a lot of people don't read the Release Notes, so perhaps it's only something I would only need to worry about if I worked for MI6?

Anyway, Chromium and Iceweasel are becoming far too sluggish for my computer. I would want to experiment with Konqueror, Midori, Epiphany and Opera, but don't want to do anything insecure. I'm of the understanding that without Mandatory Access Control, exploits in applications often allow attackers to access all of the user's files; I want to avoid that.

On the Opera page on Debian Wiki, it says 'Opera is a non-free (proprietary) software. It isn't supported by Debian. It's probably wiser to use a supported web browser ! '.

Debian :: Changing Status Of Packages In Bulk

Jul 24, 2015

I am currently running Debian Jessie with the Xfce DE.

I recently decided to replace the Xfce window manager with i3. Running Code: Select allsudo apt-get remove xfcwm unfortunately caused a lot of very necessary software to be listed as "no longer required" because they were installed automatically with xfcwm; reinstalling xfcwm did not fix the issue.

I would like to know how I can list these packages as "required", or at least as not automatically installed. I tried using

Code: Select allsudo apt-mark unmarkauto

But this only seems to work one package at a time, and there are simply too many packages for this to be a convenient solution.

Debian :: Unable To Check Status Of A Cups Printer?

Oct 15, 2010

I'm using Debian squeeze and for an assignement, i have create 2 virtual pdf cups printers. Both are working very well. To test the different administion command; i try to disable one of the printer and move his queue file to the second one. I'm able to do it easily.

Now, i wish to write a bash script that wil test the status of the printer. So that,if the printer is disable, it just execute the "move" script. Is there a way to know the status of a cups printer and use that information in a script?

For example, a command/function that can return "O" is the cups printer is enable and "1" if not.

Debian Multimedia :: Current Status Of Gnome Shell?

Jul 28, 2010

I'm using Squeeze, and haven't seen an update in the Debian repo for some time. Seeing as it's due for release soon (September), can we expect some updates in the near future? I had been using Gnome Shell in Ubuntu with much success, including compiling my own. These days, I cannot afford the bandwidth, and have encountered an unknown problem [URL] under Debian Squeeze. Currently, I'm experiencing a very annoying flickering issue using the repo version which I know does not exist anymore in the current gnome development. To have at least one update now before the release date would be nice to see.

Ubuntu :: Remove Gwibber Status Indicator / Gwibber Status In The Panel While Keeping The Shutdown Button?

Mar 16, 2011

After a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.10 I uninstalled empathy (im using skype). The empathy menu in the evolution indicator was gone after that.I also uninstalled gwibber. But the gwibber status indicator remains within the about-me panel... Uninstalling the gwibber package also removes the me-menu which I want to keep actually. Especially the shutdown/restart... part of it. See attachment.I know there is a shutdown panel-app...but its butt-ugly and it doesnt allow to logon/off.

In another thread I read that the gwibber status shouldnt be there if no account for it is configured... which it is not... I do use ubuntu-one though which is in the same menu... I saw that this issue was addressed at some bug report before, but not fixed yet...

Does anybody know a good workaround to get rid of the gwibber status in the panel while keeping the about me and the shutdown button?

Debian Installation :: Current Status Of Lenny / Squeeze Upgrade Process?

Apr 17, 2010

I'm starting to bump into crusty software in Lenny and am looking to upgrade to Squeeze. However, there's no release notes yet and Googling for upgrade directions yields all kinds of variations, some of which talk about "interesting" issue. Thus, my questions:

1. How hard/messy is the Lenny to Squeeze upgrade at this time?
2. Where can I find straightforward, clear directions on how to upgrade?

For quite some time, I just stayed on testing and incrementally upgraded on a regular basis, but stopped after Lenny came out because security support was suspended. Now I'd like to climb back on that train.FWIW, I originally installed Slink in 1999 and haven't reinstalled from scratch since, despite several generations of hardware upgrades.
