Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04, and from the moment I installed it, I couldn't type capital z, all other shift+letter are working fine, but when it comes to z, it pops up a message with the title Metacity saying:There was an error running System Monitor:Failed to execute child process System(No such file or directory)
How can I fix it?(And yes, I can use Caps-lock and z, but I wonder what is causing the problem)
I wasn't sure what to put this in since I don't know what the source of the problem could be. I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 (gonna upgrade soon) and as of yesterday I haven't been able to get a capital t from pressing shift+t keys. For some reason, all other keys work fine. Yesterday, the keys were triggering as maximize window/unmaximize window. I checked the keyboard shortcuts in Gnome and shift+t wasn't set to anything. I then assigned it to something else and removed it, and now the maximize/unmaximize problem is gone, but nothing happens when I press shift+t while typing. I can still get a capital T like I just did with caps lock on.
I had recently installed Bisigi Themes and Cairo dock after which the letter Capital A has gone ... it just appears as a black box with some smudges on it...i dont know which of the two caused it... bfore installing them the letter was visible ...

Some minimized apps no longer appear in the top menu and by that are no longer accessible.For example firefox with the minimize addon or Jungel Disk backup service.How can I reach apps that minimized them self and are not shown in the top menu?
Sick of avoiding capital "m" in my computer usage I decided to buy a new keyboard at last;big surprise (ok,was wondering why "m" works,"shift" works,but not "shift + m" earlier,but needed a new keyboard anyway):problem persist with the new keyboard.Tried different keyboard layouts,fonts,nothing.,still can not type "M"....had to copy&paste this wonderful big one This is on maverick32;booting lucid64 all is fine.......must be gnome-related,the shell is fine also.Where do I start searching for my "blacklisted" "shift + m" ?
When I started the PC like always, it started normal been having issues actually, every time I start up the PC it freezes when I put the password in and its going to the desktop and stuff, then I have to re-start it or it re-starts itself, or just go to where I have to type in the password again, and then it does it again after a while, after 3 or 4 times of that it goes to the desktop normally and works fine, but today it took some time, and after it finally loaded the panel was all odd, everything appeared in block letters, like when Mozilla can't recognize certain language it just shows you blocks, that appears, but I check the system, where images and all that, everything appears normal, it only seems to be the panel. wondering if its that I need to re-install the panel, or something else, also this odd file appeared too, it says (invalid coding) next to it, when I go to upload an image or something the files there, I wonder if that has something to do, or maybe its just been there who knows (and the freezing part too), anyways, I'm new here so I don't really know if this place was the right place to post this up OTL theres a screenshot in an attachemnt thing (if I put it up, it would appear to big)
since today's update my keyboard is acting strange. Letters e a c b f d won't come out right. They show for example e. and then I can't type anything more except the same letter over and over, until the eeeeee transforms into some weird symbol, sometimes asking me to choose between several ones...already checked languages and keyboard settings, nothing will do...
how to remove the underlining from letters on KDE (on menus and buttons for keyboard shortcuts I think)? I am currently running Kde4.4. If this can not be done through KDE would it be possible to modify the actual font itself to remove the underlining option? I never use the keyboard to navigate and with the font I am using the underlining seems to touch the letters themselves. Also, on a side note, does anybody know what the command is to bring up the "loguout, turn off computer and restart" menu (the one that comes up when Ctrl+alt+del) are pressed?
I have strange issue with ubuntu's terminal lately it's showing up a space after some letters such as " t l f j i " when I tried to write a command by any of these letters I have got it, this problem is preventing me to implement any correct command so is it pkg issue need to re-install or I have to do something ?my OS is ubuntu 11.04 natty with gnome unity GUI/ UTF-8 | all my fonts that are using on my machine is Arial.
At first I apologize if the subject was in the wrong place The reason is that I do not speak English And enlisted Google to translate can I register and add this topic I have a question: Can I change the password to be one of three numbers or three letters only
I use ubuntu 10.04
Note: I know the old password I just want to change
Yesterday, after browsing for a while, my keyboard suddenly started to show different characters than typed. The keys are just typing different letters than pressed. For example, the j displays a 1, the k displays a 2, and so on. This only happens on the x server. On the terminal, before starting the x server, the keyboard works just fine.
When I set up Ubuntu 9.10 Server I didn't enabled Russian Letters, and now I need them. The only language is English. So when I type in Russian there are some symbols. So how can I install Russain Letters on the running server.
I have just got a used computer from a friend and i installed Ubuntu because i am a new Linux user and i have heard its the simplest one to use but i installed to my computer as the only operating system and now when i start it up it says this: Error: No such devicea bunch of numbers and letters).
What's a simple way to print something with a font where the letters have dark outlines around them and a white interior? Is there a combination of settings and fonts in Open Office that would achieve that? I want to print on ordinary 8 1/2 by 11 inch paper.
We have an issue like this: We print PDFs from a Linux box to a printer attached to a Windows machine. Problem is when we print from the Windows the printout comes perfectly with the font bold and clear, but when printing from the Linux box the font is very FAINT and we can see dots in the fonts.
We tried changing the PDF to a text file (i.e. we created text file with the report) with the -o cpi=5 option and still it does not come out properly. Now the font gets bigger, but we can see dots in the font and it is not bold.
I've recently purchased a VPS to run a private server on. I installed gnome and configured it to run on TightVNC to access from my home computer. Whenever I try to type certain letters such as a lower case "s" it instead accesses the shutdown menu at the top right corner. This is disabling me from finishing my server and downright frustrating.
