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 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 have some mp3 files that I want to sync with my girlfriend's mp3 player (Sandisk Sansa 4GB) using Rhythmbox, but for some reason no songs come up in Rhythmbox. I then checked the device's filesystem itself. The directory structure is correct, but there are no files in any of the folders. However, Dolphin reports that about 1.6 GB are free, which is about correct based on how much music is actually on the device already. And I've already synced this exact device with Windows Media Player before, and it worked fine. This was a problem both in 8.10 and, now, in 9.10.
On top of that, just now the Sansa disappeared both in Rhythmbox and Dolphin, as if it was unplugged. But it says on the Sansa's screen "Connected" and is apparently charging. I tried unplugging and re-connecting, but Ubuntu still refuses to recognise it.
If I can't get this to work, I'll likely just transfer the songs over the network to my Windows PC and use Windows Media Player, since that seems to work fine.
I'm trying to use my Buffalo Link station nas as a printer server. However every time I try sending a job to the printer remotely, I get an error in the samba logs. It says "lpr: unknown printer"
I was wondering how do I install the drivers for my HP? I tried copying the original printcap db from the original firmware but it doesn't work still. I restarted. The lpd error logs were empty. The lpd.log just indicated lpd had been restarted.
I know for a fact this printer works with this nas because I've tested it using the stock firmware.
EasyTag will not recognise mp3 files imported from an iPod via Rhythmbox.I get an error message - " there are no files in this directory or subdirectories".Easytag will however recognise mp3s ripped from a CD on the machine.I believe I have changed permissions/ownership of the files to the username.Using Maverick 10.10
I am having trouble getting my USB flash drive (formatted in Fat32) to be recognised in Kde4 (I do not run Gnome so I can not test it there). It does not show up automatically in "Devices recently plugged in" (on the taskbar) and I can not find it in either /media or /mnt.
When I plug the drive in the light on the drive flashes and here is the output of dmesg and lsusb
I'm having a problem, as Fedara is not recognising a 2nd hardrive that I've added to a USB port.To clarify, the first hardrive is in the PC with Fedora installed on it. The problem is with the 2nd one that I need to add to a USB port.
I am having a problem with the USB Start up creator. I am down loading the Ubuntu Netbook Edition ISO image in the normal way.I then start up the Start Up Disk CreatorI then attempt to select the ISO image to add to the USB stick by clicking 'Other'I then locate the image and double click on it to select it.The image does not show up in the Source disc image section at all.I have tested the image in a virtualbox to confirm that it is not faulty and have tried two different downloads of the imag
I've clean installed over a friend's win98 with Mint 7 (disc from lab a year? or so ago).
My Optus modem prompted the wizard and now always works fine,ok speed, and I updated Mint with 300 new files etc.
But my friend's new Telstra Turbo modem,[Sierra brand] although it shows a blue light flashing, doesn't get the wizard connection process started, and there's just NO sign on Mint that it's plugged in.
If I can get it to work, it will increase the number of people I know who use linux to 1.
I just started using Kontact and have imported all my contact details from Thunderbird.This worked OK, but I find that when I start a new email and begin to type the recipient's name, the email address is not automatically pulled from the contact list as I would expect.I also noticed that there doesn't appear to be a 'Send Email' option in the Contact screen once an entry has been selected.Kmail seems to be collecting email addresses from any emails I send, and if I start typing one of these, then it does auto-complete
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 just started using FireFTP instead of FileZilla because I got fed up with FileZilla not opening remote files and not recognising the default editor Gedit.
I really want to use keyboard shortcuts with FireFTP, which is possible according to the help docs on-line, but there is no option to use shortcuts anywhere even having enabled FireFTP to open in a new window. I tried it in Shiretoko 3.59 and Firefox 3.18 with no luck.
I just tried removing FileZilla and it does not appear in my list of installed apps. It appears in the full list as uninstalled but when ticking the box to install gives this message. FileZilla FTP client cannot be installed on your computer type (i386). Either the application requires special hardware features or the vendor decided to not support your computer type. I already have FileZilla..so how is that?
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.
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.
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?
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 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 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.
Actually, thats a lie. It works on the initial screen (where you can select how you want to install via command line or text based etc etc).But whatever option i select from there it loses the keyboard.The first screen (asking for keyboard layout) just sits there on english but i am unable to advance. Its as if my keyboard is unplugged (has LED backlights and they turn off as soon as it hits this screen so im guessing its USB driver related).I wanted the alternate to do drive encryption but it doesnt seem to want to know. Normal CD works fine btw.
