OpenSUSE Install :: Update: No Home, Wrong Keyboard Layout, OpenOffice?

Dec 3, 2009

I updated from 11.1 to 11.2. Before some intelligent person says, I should never update but do a new install: a new install isn't better, then I have other problems to tackle. And I really would like updates to work.Well, I have the following problems and I hope you don't mind me listing them all in one post *it's difficult for me to type on this keyboard layout):1. home isn't found or set up. I have modified fstab to mount /dev/sda6, which is home, but it won't mount it at startup, and also not when it's just using the disk/by-id line that had been put in.

2. the keyboard layout is american, while the system language is set to German (I'm German and would like also my keyboard to know that). I had no chance to change that, even a loadkeys de-latin1 doesn't help3. OpenOffice drives me crazy. It just doesn't start properly, or at all. It doesn't open a number of documents, but it doesn't also give any error message. Sometimes soffice.bin is in the list of processes, but OOo is nowhere seen. After killing the process (or terminating it), I can start it, but have only the opening screen and cannot really open a document.4. printing doesn't seem to work, either.Needless to say that everything worked fine before the update

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Constantly Resets To Another Layout In OSUSE 11.3?

Aug 9, 2010

I have installed opensuse 11.3 a couple of weeks ago in 2 computers and both suffer of the same problem.In my asus laptop, i have a german keyboard. It is correctly recogniced as german keyboard by ev-dev, i guess. (ev-dev managed). But i need to write some spanisch symbols too, like accents (ᠩ ? 񬠷hich in a normal linux, they do work. For some reason, after rebooting, or after some time of having it running, the keyboard layout resets to an invalid setup, here accents get not over the letter (?a ?e ?i ?o ?u), so i have to select my layout again in the gnome control center.

With my other computermore or less the same.Its a desktop PC with an spanisch keyboard. But i thinck i picked German keyboard during installation and now it starts always with german with some sort of 5 secs delay when setting it. I have to pick spanisch and i always delete the german layout, but after some time having it running, it resets to the previusly deleted german layout.

Fedora :: Wrong Keyboard Layout At Login (KDM)

Aug 16, 2010

I use a Dvorak keyboard. I recently installed F13, and the layout is correct in the console an after logging in, but at the login screen, it goes to QWERTY. I've tried all of the settings in the GUI configurators; all of those are set right. There is no xorg.conf; so, I can't change it that way.

Ubuntu :: US-International Keyboard Layout All Wrong And Difficult To Use

Apr 10, 2010

The US-International layout in K/Ubuntu seems to be extremely irritating and difficult to use. I'm wondering if I could find some help here. One thing is if a dead key doesn't work (typing in ' + t for example) it will produce nothing in Ubuntu, as opposed to windows producing 't. I must add a space after almost every apostrophe or quotation mark, which is becoming extremely difficult, tedious, irritating and unnecessary. Also the dead keys that are available are ridiculous. The dead keys I am used to and want are:

' + [letter] = ����� � �
" + [letter] = ����� �
` + [letter] = ���� �
~ + [letter] = � � �
^ + [letter] = ���� �

Which allows one to simultaneously and smoothly type English, Dutch and German but could (to a lesser extent) be used for French. What I get:

[Code]...

Which makes 's (ś) painful, as well as the many uses for apostrophes in dutch like m'n and 'k (producing mń and ḱ respectively) etc. Considering this layout is widely used and is pretty much the de facto layout in The Netherlands whose primary languages would be Dutch and English (and some German), why has it become so difficult to use? Also, how do I fix it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard Layout Keeps Reverting To USA

Dec 12, 2010

I have a UK keyboard, so I selected the United Kingdom layout on installation of OpenSUSE 11.3.However, something keeps automatically adding the USA layout, and switching to it ! How can I prevent this annoying and intrusive behaviour ? Deleting the USA layout is not enough, it seems. It just restores it again.

OpenSUSE :: Epson SX600FW Landscape Layout Wrong?

Feb 6, 2010

Having selected 'Landscape', when printing using 'File|Print' in KWrite, the text is presented in landscape but formatted to a size of approximately 105mm x 590mm (bottom half of a landscape page and stretched to twice the width, printing only the left hand side). I have a similar issue with some other programs too, but not Open Office.Having configured 'cupsd.conf' to log in debug mode it would seem that the problem I'm getting may be to do with applications that output in 'application/pdf' format, because in the CUPS log for Job 57 line 479 seems to indicate that KWrite has output a PDF file:

Code:[Job 57] File of type application/pdf queued by "root". Then at line 490 there's a line that seems to indicate no landscape, even though this was selected through the user interface of KWrite (and works in Open Office)!:Code:[Job 57] argv[5]="document-name=4b69b8710002c media=A4 nolandscape job-uuid=urn:uuid:5c6fae2f-ad2f-3364-5f04-bb5500d1eabc" I would have attached the various 'log' and 'conf' files but I'm new to this and I just can't find a way to get attachments enabled for my login!I've spent hours on this, if anyone can give me any pointers I would be most grateful, however I am no Linux system administrator I'm afraid.Current system: openSUSE 11.2 x64, Kernel 2.6.31.8, CUPS 1.3.11, gutenprint 5.2.4, KWrite 4.3.1 release 6, KDE 4.3.1.1Old system (that worked with this printer): openSUSE 11.1 x32, gutenprint 5.2.2

Running Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, GNOME 2.3Keyboard Preferences utilityAdding any Spanish language keyboard layout makes my Alt_R not work in ANY layout!

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Randomly Changes Language And Layout?

Feb 23, 2010

I installed open suse 11.2 yesterday stock Education edition DVD.

I changed the keyboard because it was generating garbage instead of english chars. (everything was stock from the CD)

The replacement kb is a newer one (I favor the old kb's).

eventually the language and layout of the keyboard changes - usually to Arabic or some Eastern alphabet.

I was really starting to like open suse, but if this persists it is unusable.

Something is misbehaving - any Ideas would be appreciated.

I'm running the default desktop env - gnome.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.4 And Thinkpad T61 Keyboard Layout - Settings Interfering?

Feb 16, 2010

I recently switched my openSUSE 11.1 install from KDE 3 to KDE 4.4 via the one-click-install from [URL]... I was trying to add a German keyboard layout to the default US layout. But as soon as I enable keyboard layouts (via Configure Desktop-> Language & Regional -> Keyboard Layout -> Enable keyboard layouts), the default layout gets messed up (arrow, pos1, end keys etc. no longer work). I'm running openSUSE 11.1 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T61. Several keyboard layouts worked fine with KDE 3. Could it be that some KDE 3 settings are interfering with the KDE 4 settings?

OpenSUSE :: Faroese Keyboard Layout - Missing The Letters

Jun 3, 2011

I've been using using Ubuntu and Arch with gnome for ages, but after the whole gnome3 and unity hubub, I decided to go with kde and openSUSE. and I'm completely loving it. However, I have one problem Ubuntu (gnome) has the option to choose the Faroese keyboard layout, but in openSUSE with kde, it's not an option. Now I really need to be able to write a lot, so I need the regular Faroese layout, otherwise I'm missing the letter "ð". openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options

OpenSUSE :: Custom Keyboard Layout Asciitilde Does Not Work

Jul 23, 2011

I have swapped backspace key with ` (grave) key. So I added a layout in the /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us with the following lines:

key <TLDE> { [ BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace, BackSpace ] };
key <BKSP> { [ grave, asciitilde, dead_tilde, asciitilde ] };

Now the backspace and grave work well, but when I press shift + grave (previously backspace key), I get grave, not asciitilde.

This is strange because I tried the same thing (with the same us file) with Chakra linux and it worked without any problem.

Ubuntu :: Create And Install A Keyboard Layout From Scratch?

Jun 18, 2010

I was wondering if anyone could provide resources on creating and installing keyboard layouts from scratch. I am a conlanger(I create languages), and I need to be able to map certain unicode characters to certain keys. I could do this via creating a font, however, It would be easier if I could just switch between layouts which is easier than switching between fonts. Especially, when I am using more than one program at once. I'm sorry because I have never used the Ubuntu forums before and I probably posted this in the wrong forum.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 10.04 - Freezes At Keyboard Layout Selection

May 19, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.24 at a computer running Windows 7. Here are 2 scenearios, with the same result:

If I boot from the Ubuntu CD and try to install it, the wizard is freezed at the keyboard layout selection. I'm able to select my keyboard, but after I press Forward, the button is greyed out and nothing happens.
If I press cancel, I load the Live CD and retry the installation from there, selecting the shortcut "Install Ubuntu 10,04 LTS" from the desktop. Everything goes fine until the keyboard layout selection. Just in case, my keyboard is a USB Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 and it works perfectly fine in Windows 7 and in the Live CD.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Layout Changing Randomly - GNOME In Slovak Language

Jan 30, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 with default GNOME desktop and i'm facing issues with keyboard layouts, which are changing randomly. Problem is that i have GNOME in Slovak language and therefore has openSUSE set durring installation my keyboard layout to 'Slovak' but i always change it to 'Slovak QWERTY' which suits me better.
Problem is that randomly system adds back to my layouts which are 'Slovak QWERTY' and 'USA' also original 'Slovak' layout which was previously removed.

I must always manually remove this third layout and it's very frustrating. Many times on fresh system boot it's anyway back and so on and on... Where may lie the problem? Why is GNOME not respecting my settings? In Ubuntu i never have these basic issues. Are there on system boot some specific SUSE triggers which are overwriting my configuration?

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse Lost After Update - How To Boot In To Terminal?

Oct 15, 2010

I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Wrong Volume Control Via Keyboard?

Jun 10, 2010

I own an ASUS G71V laptop and I run openSUSE 11.2 with latest kernel and patches.

I just tried to use Fn+F10/F11/F12 combinations to regulate volume, just to see if they work.

I found that (from KDE 4.4.3) I can see the pop-up volume indicator going up and down as I press the right combination.

Ok... unfortunately, hardware keys regulate the wrong volume slider as I can see by opening Kmix. The front-microphone channel instead of master is regulated.

Actually, I just found that if I click on the volume icon on the taskbar I get the front mic slider, which seems to be bad.

How can I tell KDE that the default channel is the "master"?
