Fedora :: The Keyboard Is Sending Mutiple Keystrokes?
Nov 13, 2009
In the attempt to solve other problems () I got now this new one.Whatever I type, every character is displayed (and interpreted) mutiple times.rice for the sake of precision.It's happening with both the internal keybaord (it's a laptopt) andh an external USB keyboard.In order to work I'n now using the on screen keyboard of my KDE.To log in I had to enable the automatic login.
My requirement is to save files before shutting the Linux machine down, unattended ie: when the user is not near the machine. This is done whenever the UPS battery is about to die, so that the files get saved. open-Office/text-editor applications that can be saved using keystrokes will have to be found from the running processes and keystrokes should be sent to them from a C program that was started in non-graphics stage. ie: from a C program that forks into memory as a daemon before xwindows part starts. How to I send keystrokes to a running application? (like cotrol + F and then wait and then send next set of keystrokes till the file is saved as a new file or as the same file itself), either from C program or a script?
I have to transport a lot of files from one pc to another (both Linux). I would like to use scp for that, but scp only allows for transferring one file at a time. How can I do this?
I have No possibility to use rsync or any other protocol No possibility to use passphrase free certificates (but have a certificate with a passphrase) A list of files to transfer and a list with the destination path of the files on the other server The files are spread out over a lot of directories, and not all the files in the directories I want to copy If possible I would like to gzip and ungzip transparently to save bandwidth!
I'm trying my hand at arrays in bash for a backup script. Now I not sure if this is the correct thing to do and just look at website and amended but does'nt work. Could someone tell me where I'm going wrong
I am trying to get my network music player (Logitech Squeezebox) to connect consistently with Ubuntu. Most of my music (FLAC files) is on a separate NTFS hard drive as I am dual booting with XP.I have edited the Fstab file somewhat based on suggestions on the forum but I can not seem to consistently connect to the Squeezebox with my music files (FLAC). What appears to happen is I set up my mount point in the media folder as Music and configure this with my Squeezebox which scans the Hard drive and finds all my music. The player works and it all seems fine even after a reboot but after a couple of reboots I get an error message when booting that says "The disk drive for media/Music/Flac is not ready yet or not present".
When I go to the media folder it appears that the Music folder is duplicated with a folder called Music_ and after a resetting the Squeezebox scanner to the new Music_ folder the process starts over again and I eventually end up with another folder called Music__ and so on.My question is 1) can I delete these Music folders without erasing all my Music library , and 2) how do I correct this situationHere is the Fstab file:# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
I am experimenting with LUKS+dm_crypt. My setup is something like this: a LVM VG made of multiple Physical Volumes (PV). That VG contains multiple LV (Logical Volumes), most of them encrypted via LUKS+dm_crypt (via cryptsetup).Editing "/etc/crypttab", the system will requiere a passphrase for each encrypted LV. But since all my encrypted LVs share the same passphrase, I would like to be prompted only ONCE, instead of twelve times (I have 12 encrypted LV).
I have thought about writing a script to include in initrd that ask for the password once, store the result somewhere volatile (ramdisk?), and provide that password for the rest of "/etc/crypttab" entries.But this seems complex and fragile.I wonder if there is something I am missing, or some other easier way.
Issue: My wife can type about 70wpm. And uses the computer to write short stories. She has been bitten before and as a results saves often. In fact she CTRL+S (saves) at the end of most sentences and every paragraph out of habit. In MS Word she could keep typing while the computer saved, and once MS Word was done saving it would drop all the buffered text onto the page. OpenOffice3.2 doesn't work this way. She has discovered that while it is saving and she is still typing the text doesn't go into the buffer and she looses the text she has typed. She is reporting to me that she looses a couple of words since the saving takes about 1-3 seconds.
My thoughts before I get home tonight: I was thinking of whipping out the video camera and showing everyone.Switch to LibreOfficeSee if it happens in other applications, maybe plop her down in gedit and see what happens, it could be an when writing to HDD keyboard buffer doesn't work.
I have a piece of software that attempts to recognise when a hotkey has been pressed in order to activate functions, this program is designed for use on Windows systems so I am currently running it through the tool called 'Wine.'
When I am in the program it detects the key I wish to assign, it then allows me to save the settings which remain present once the program has been relaunched. However, both with and without the given program in focus it does not detect the given keystrokes.
I have attempted to make Wine use dinput.dll in native Windows form, rather the my system default however this did not resolve the issue. Even though it did make the program save my keystroke in a Windows format.
I'm using Debian (Stetch at the moment). Since a couple of days i noticed that some keystrokes get not recognized by the system, which is really annoying if i type something. It also happens sometimes that a random key gets pressed. For example if i want to type "Hello world", I get "Helllllllllllllo, world", the system would print the "l" character, for example, as long as i don't press any other key. I have a similar problem with my mouse, sometimes it would just get stuck and would not recognise any movement or key presses for a couple of seconds.
The goal was to remote desktop to my linux box from my windows machine, I went down the path of TightVNC. Installed and ran it.. thought I was all clear.. however the keyboard keystrokes are all jumbled, and seem to be all over the shop. (i.e.: when I press 'p' it actually comes out as 'X' etc. Happens for all keystrokes. Had a quick look around but haven't found any information on it. Uninstalled tightvnc server and installed vnc4server and it resolved the issue, shrug.
So I've noticed that some applications block keystrokes and input from reaching Ubuntu. Most recently I got the Linux version of Unreal Tournament 2004 running. Problem is that when I'm playing Unreal it captures all input, so when I decide the game is too loud or too quiet, rolling my volume wheel doesn't adjust the volume. I either have to pause the game so it releases my mouse(only in windowed mode), or exit altogether, adjust the volume, and restart the game. Is there a way to change this?
I've been playing a fair amount of Minecraft. Awesome game, but I really dislike that the mouse buttons bindings aren't editable. I was wondering if there was a program out there for Linux that can remap a mouse button (Like [Right Click]) to a key on your keyboard. (Like the [Spacebar]) I've done some digging around, but nothing shows up to edit the three standard mouse buttons, just the extended ones.
whenever I type certain things (backspace when nothing left to delete, tab to autocomplete in terminal, etc.) the screen will randomly go dim and then go back after a few seconds. it also happens when I try to use the rain or write with fire options.(though this might be normal)
I have a script that toggles my touchpad on and off and I assigned it a custom keystroke using gconf-editor. It worked fine until I upgraded to Natty and now I can't make it work anymore. I checked and the script is still the value of 'command_1' and the same keystroke (<Alt>t) is still the value of run_command_1 in the universal keybindings. But, for whatever reason, when I hit <Alt>t, nothing happens. I've tried using assigning different keystrokes, but nothing has worked.
I use many different terminals during the course of my working day and frequently have to adjust my interaction to each unique type. For example, when interacting with bash via my work gnome-terminal I can use ctrl-arrow to skip over words, like most test editors allow. On the other hand, my xterm at home can't interpret this action and spits out a chunk of binary gibberish whenever I use this command.
I think that the behaviour of bash is consistent, it's just that the xterms treat keyboard events differently, depending on their configuration. Can someone confirm for me that this correct?, if yes, how can I calibrate the terminal to treat my keystrokes in the manner I desire?
I have a home network with 5 pcs that have Windows XP. I have another computer that has Ubuntu 9.04 server, Squid, and Dansguardian.
The proxy server is able to monitor and report all websites that have been visited. The report is sorted by the ip address from each of the windows pcs.
This is my question: Is there some software that can be installed on the proxy server that will act as a keylogger...monitoring the keystrokes that are being typed in on the Windows pcs and then generate a report, sorted by ip address, of the keystrokes for each of the windows pcs.
I know that I can install a keylogger on each pc, but I think that it would be better if it was on the proxy server monitoring all the computers.
I just installed Kubuntu 10.04 dual booted with Windows XP Home. It worked OK until I tried to reboot. Then, when the GRUB boot list came up, there was no response to the keyboard cursors or other keys, so I was unable to select any OS other than the default. Right now, I can't access Windows at all.
Any solution to this? One person suggested enabling USB in BIOS, but I found nothing relevant there. Another suggested I use a PS2 keyboard, which I did, but no change...same problem.
If I can't get a solution to that, how do I change the GRUB configuration to make Windows the default? 10.04 doesn't have the same kind of GRUB boot config file that I recall using the last time I worked with Kubuntu, way back around version 6 0r 8.
I have a lil' problem with a new project. I'd like to find out how to set the ability to change to the next track in a playlist by using ongly the scroll wheel of a standard usb mouse. The objective is to assign a keystroke or a command to both mouse button 4 and mouse button 5 (scroll wheel up and scroll wheel down), so that a program like rythmbox or vlc would skip to the next or previus song in the playlist.
I snaptic installed xmacro. I do not see it show up anywhere. Lost. I need a macro that can record keystrokes to reset my cable/router modem combo. I now use autohotkey. But I cannot virtual machine this, because it would need to raise up a ms windows explorer, something that cannot be done in a virtual machine on guest OS.
I'm currently running a server at home with F13. Now I've set up my sendmail config to relay through another server because my ISP blocks outgoing email. Now recently I've noticed that they have stopped this server from relaying emails so i need to sort out another way to send out.My current sendmail config has this added which was the relay server i was using.
# "Smart" relay host (may be null)DSrelay.02broadband.co.uk
Now i either want to set up the server to email through my main ISP using a username / password or go through my main email provider Gmail.Any ideas on how to set up either on Fedora? I've seen guides for setting up gmail but never anything related to Fedora and I'm a bit stuck
I have set up a Sympa list serv server and everything is working fine for the most part. One issue that I am running into is sending files over ~580 KB in size (just a normal .txt file) are not going through. I am getting the following error. Impossible to distribute your message for list 'list-name' because of an internal server error.I have verified that my "Maximum message size (max_size)" setting in Sympa is get to 5 MB so that shouldn't be the problem. If I try sending the same .txt file after taking out a few lines, and the file size is ~530 KB, then it works just fine. Nothing is really jumping out at me in the logs either.
When I get on the internet with Mozilla I am getting advertising that mentions the city I live in. How is that information being sent from my computer and how can I stop it? Is this in a file I can edit or delete?
How is it possible to send email using the "mail" program? I tried: echo "testing" | mail -s "test" email@example.com But nothing happened. I made sure that the sendmail daemon was running before I tried. Is there anything else that I have to set up first?
i've got Evolution as an email client in Fedora 12.ve got only one IMAP account configured, which seems to be working OK. However, temporarily it is not sending emails. I write an email and hit send/receive and get error. "Error while sending message" ir seems that it is downloading messages, but not sending. There is a quick, but annoying solution to it: restart Evolution. As soon as it is restarted (close and ope the application) it is working OK for some time.
