Ubuntu :: Num Lock Doesn't Work / When Pressing Num Lock And Typing Numbers, Nothing Happens?

Jun 23, 2010

I'm wondering why the num lock doesn't work in Ubuntu anymore? When you press the "num lock" key, you're supposed to be able to input the numbers along with + - * / and decimal point. When I press num lock and try typing numbers, nothing happens.

I've done a google search and this is a well known problem that nobody has fixed. In Windows it's never a problem.

Seems such a shame that the great Ubuntu and Linux are so good for stability and speed, but can't get a simple num lock working.

Software :: Su - From VNC Session Doesn't Work But Works Ok When At The Terminal

Nov 18, 2009

When I connect to my workstation via Real VNC Viewer 4 to Xvnc running on the workstation, and running "su -" I get authentication failure as follows:

So, effectively I cannot su when connected via VNC.

But if I'm at my workstation, I can su just fine:

Nov 18 16:24:30 localhost su: pam_unix(su-l:session): session opened for user root by xyz(uid=500)

Interestingly enough, I cannot su to my own userid over vnc, i.e. su xyz

In /var/log/secure I get:

I suspect it has something to do with PAM, but cannot figure it out.

Fedora :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Setting - Swap Ctrl And Caps Lock

Jun 9, 2010

I'm running fedora 13 on a Dell Latitude E6500. It's a dual 64-bit system.

It was working, but then I tried to swap caps lock and control.

I used:
Then, under Control Key Position, I selected swap caps lock and control.

Now, my keyboard won't work in the Keyboard Preferences test area or in any other window or when the screen-lock comes on.

I tried logging out. I tried rebooting. I tried deleting my .gnome2 directory. Nothing seems to work. I can use the keyboard on other accounts, so the keyboard is not the problem.

Ubuntu :: Program To Lock Out A Session?

Mar 29, 2011

So I have a laptop that I built and installed 10.10 on.

The laptop is used by a minor who needs to be off it at a certain time but can't seem to keep track of time.

I have installed that Nanny program called "Parental Control" through the software center but its not quite what I want. It says it locks out the session...but it seems pretty much useless.

So what I'm looking for is software that would not just lock the session and require them to lock the computer but to literally lock the laptop so they won't be able to use it at all until the time lapses or the admin password is entered.

Ubuntu :: Just Won't Login Anymore - "run In Low Graphics Mode For One Session" Doesn't Work

Jul 21, 2010

I've been using ubuntu for months now and it was really frustrating dealing with hardware issues. Just when I thought everything's going ok, today, when I boot up, I am greeted by the following error: "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly, you will need to configure these yourself."

Selecting "run in low graphics mode for one session" doesn't work. It looks like it's loading something but nothing. I tried various options like "reconfigure X" and none of them works. I can login the console find though. I have a backup from a month ago but I've changed a lot since then.

Ubuntu Security :: Enabling A Guest Session Under 9.04 Does Not Lock The Source User?

Jan 14, 2010

I noticed (the hard way) that enabling a guest session under 9.04 does not lock the source user. I enabled a guest session for someone and came back to find them rooting through my files. By quitting the guest session, it goes back to the source user's desktop without requiring a password. Shouldnt it go to gnome-screensaver automatically? Can this be changed? Is it a bug?

to replicate: log into source user's account use the menu to start a guest session quit the guest session root through files un-opposed.

OpenSUSE Install :: Seamless Mount Of Encrypted Disks And New Session Creation After Each Screen Lock?

Sep 8, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 on HP elitebook 2560p few days ago (using KDE live CD). In general system is working fine, but steel I cannot resolve couple of really annoying issues: 1. I've created encrypted partitions for swap and home during OS installation. As result the system keep asking for passwords for each of encrypted partitions before show login screen. That leads to situation when I have to type 3 passwords during each boot/reboot. I was using the same configuration (swap and home were encrypted) on Ubuntu 11.04 and there both encrypted partitions were mount automatically with no password typing after login to the system. Could you please tell how I can configure the same behavior on openSUSE 11.4 ?

2. I've enabled auto screen lock after 5 mins being inactive. As result when I going back to laptop and to unlock the screen the system shows login screen (default login screen with user selection). But when user and password filled in I click login it creates entire new KDE session. Therefore all staff that was open before screen lock is gone. However old session is still in the system (it appears in output from 'w' command).

Ubuntu :: The Dreaded Number Lock Won't Work?

May 2, 2010

Number lock won't stay on or off. There doesn't seem to be any pattern. I'll be typing, and use the number keypad to move the cursor to the far left or right, and get a number instead. Or the opposite will happen.have tried ctrl-alt-numlock. I have tried installing numlockx. I have tried, in fact, every solution listed here that I can find. I had the same problem with 9.04, and found a terminal command (I think) that fixed it.But I didn't save the solution anywhere, and I can't find the post with that solution in the forums.

Ubuntu :: Does 1TB Core External HDD With DES Lock Will Work?

Sep 1, 2011

I want to buy a new external USB hard disk drive, and my eye was drawn by the 1TB CORE External Desktop USB 2.0 Very appealing was the comment "Plug n Play - no software to install". But then I noticed the sentence: "Includes DES lock - Protect all your important files." This set the alarm bells ringing. If the drive comes with a DES protection lock, is this likely to work with Ubuntu? Or is it going to be a Windows-only thing, locking me out cos I don't use Windows?

Ubuntu :: Remote Lock Will Not Work On Multi-vid Card Studio Box?

Feb 12, 2011

I'm trying to set up some scripts from one machine that I can use to remotely lock all of my workstations remotely. I have a virtual ubuntu machine ported out to the internet w/ ssh open and I'm using ServerAssistant on my droidX phone to kick off the scripts. I have all of my ssh keys shared between the boxes so I don't have to log on. Everything works beautifully for one machine, a regular Ubuntu 10.10 box with a single video card with 2 monitors. This is the script contents:

ssh -X brainstem@zappa "export DISPLAY=:0; gnome-screensaver; gnome-screensaver-command -l" But my other desktop, a triple monitor ubuntu studio 10.04 box (2 vid cards) will not kick off with the same syntax as above (obviously different computer name). If I execute the command manually from the remote machine, it doesn't work either. Just to make sure, I ran "gnome-screensaver-command -l" locally on this box just to make sure that part works - it locks the machine locally just fine. I just can't seem to get it to work from another machine. I've tried from 2 different boxes and have the same results. I can do anything else I want over ssh and it all works.

Ubuntu :: Sudo-apt Get Not Working - Not Get Lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock Resource Temporarily Unavailable

Jun 12, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on an old Sony Vaio laptop. I was following some of the steps here..[url]

The step "Enable Full DVD Playback(Dual Layer DVD Support)" did not finish correctly doh and now I can't use 'sudo apt-get' for anything or the software center or using the 'Update Manager' does not work.

The update manger says it may be caused by an update not finishing correctly which sounds correct as explained above. The apt-get command gives me back the following....'Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock resource temporarily unavailable' 'unable to lock administration directory /var/lib/dpkg is another process using it?'

I tried the obvious restart but that hasn't worked.
