Ubuntu :: Control-c - Control-v - Copy And Paste Functions - Stopped Working
Jan 19, 2011
I don't know how this happened, but my keyboard copy and paste functions have stopped working. Oddly enough, I discovered that I can only copy and paste by using the third mouse button. Pressing down on the scroll wheel after highlighting text copies the text, pressing it again pastes it Ican still use the Edit-copy and Edit-paste menu functions.
I'm sure it has something to do with all the tinkering I have been doing with my desktop. I have been experimenting with CompizConfig and Cairo dock, changing my themes and things of this nature.
I just noticed that highlighting text and middle button clicking no longer copies and pastes as it has it has been for years. I haven't upgraded anything or installed any new software so this is a bit confusing for me. How I may restore this function? BTW, it doesn't work anywhere, terminal, firefox, etc. For clarity, the mouse itself works, I can point, click, etc... it is just the copy/paste function that has failed -disappeared- Using Suse and KDE desktop
When I started using Slackware I've been using USB headset. Everything ran perfectly fine. They got recognized, I could use all of it's functions and so on. Unfortunately volume control on them stopped working so I had to service them, and like in every third world country, yay I need to wait minimum three weeks just so they can press a button and say "Yup, they don't work".
I bought normal headset to use them while other one is getting fixed, and didn't expect any problems with them considering they are "old" technology, normal audio input and output.
Now problem is following, sound works fine but microphone doesn't. Once I managed to "fix" it by switching audio input from mic to something else and then back to mic, now even that doesn't work. Another... "problem" is if I leave my USB webcam plugged in while booting computer, there is no sound at all, ether on line ones or USB ones but I can easily solve that problem by unplugging webcam, rebooting and plugging it back in later.
Now everything ran fine until my computer shutdown while I was sleeping. Don't know why, but it started happening recently, don't see anything smart in logs so I assume its... something, read it could be cache, HDD, temperature and so on but since logs don't write down anything smart... will deal with it some other time.
When I talk I can actually hear myself on the headset, which probably means that they work. If I put mic boost all the way up, I can hear myself perfectly clear, but somehow... seems that that information just doesn't get to Slackware, well it gets somewhat considering that it reacts to me adjusting mic boost on KMix, but everything else... no.
Arecord doesn't record anything, TS register as microphone isn't plugged in at all, skype doesn't get any input ether.
Running Wheezy 7.8 with LXDE desktop. I have noticed that the task bar volume control no longer seems to function. Volume can be controlled by apps, such as Youtube in Google Chrome. The volume control used to work. I really don't know exactly when this started but probably after the last update on Monday, Feb. 10 2015.
I have checked the PulseAudio settings and don't see any way there. Ran a sound test and the volume can be controlled from the PulseAudio panel but NOT the task bar volume control.
Here is a bit of interesting additional info. When I play the audio thru my analog speakers the volume control has no affect. But when I play the sound thru my USB headset, the volume control works. Very strange.
* more or less solved. still not exactly what I want but it works, mostly.
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.
Laptop is Dell Latitude C600/C500 with Pentium III 850Mhz, 256Kb L2 Cache, 256MB RAM, ATI M3 video card, HD 20005 MB and sound card is EES Maestro 3i. After trying to do something with Windows 2000 which was installed on the machine, I decided to put Linux without keeping windows on the machine. First I try with Xubuntu (latest version) which was working but slowly, then I found that Debian could work fine on that machine. I have installed latest version 5.08 and was surprised how goodly old machine can work. I solved problems with screen resolution (change from 800x600 to 1024x768) but I couldn't find solution how to fix problem with sound.
Actually I don't have sound on the machine. I looked for a linux driver for that sound card and Dell is only providing windows drivers. Then I found that I can solve the problem with ALSA drivers but I couldn't find the easy way (or any way at all) to install drivers and to get back the sound. When I click on 'Volume Control' (top right corner of the screen) I get the message: 'Volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.'
Since a while,the energy-saver shuts down the screeago,it happens after half an hour,but I didn�t set it up in that orders !It makes menervous,short time away from the comp,and soon the screen is dark!And the screensaver will not appear any more,too.I tried to enlarge the times in the energy-manager,created a new profile,switched off the laptopmode-service,nothing helps!And it seems,if there is no possibility to set one of the profiles up,they can only be changed,deleted or newly created.Is there really no place to force it to the required settings?Under the good old KDE3.5,it was no problem,to get it work like I want it to.My 64-bit system runs under openSUSE 11.3 and KDE 4.4.Is here any salvation for my nerves
I have had my thinkpad for just a few short months and, it must be that we are heading into summer, but I am starting to finally run into some overheating issues especially when compiling software for awhile, i.e. kernel.
My question would be, "Is it best to let the built in thermal management take care of the issue, and I just need to know what to tweak, or to put on a script solution such as the tp-fancontrol script?
The computer takes about 5-10 minutes to overheat and the message I get in /var/log/messages is "logger: ACPI group thermal_zone / action THM1 is not defined" then it shuts down.
So, any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.
I am running slackware-current x86_64 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T500.
I can't copy & paste text from an Evolution email message without first pasting the text into an editor like gedit or a word processor and recopying it a second time... Then it works fine... I thought the problem may have been a Delphi forum specific problem, but it also does the same thing on this board...
I running 10.04 with the default Evolution mail program.
BTW on Delphi I can turn off the wysiwyg editor and paste as "source" and it works just fine without the paste and recopy step...
i have a xeon machine with ubuntu os machine specification is 3gb RAM 3 scsi hard drives each 73gb it have two ethernet cards one ethernet card is connected with adsl modem and the second is connected with LAN. now what is mikrotik doing for me is control access to bind mac adress with ip adress and control the band width for induvisual conection.
while checking out open office i noticed something strange. while the "copy" shortcut command seems to be disabled / unalloted , it does work in practice !i noticed in keyboard shortcuts that there is no command alloted with the Ctrl + C combination. this i saw from both the "shortcuts" and the "functions" menus in customize.
Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.
This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update. I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?
Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1
I have a dual boot and my windows plays audio fine.My ubuntu plays audio fine as well however when I click on the Volume Control icon on the panel it gives me this error:No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.and I am still unable to control volume. I have alsamixer installed and it can control my system sound fine but all this time I've been able to use the controls on my HP Pavilion dv5250ca laptop's keyboard controls to control the volume and I'd like to be able to continue doing that- I haven't been able to for the last 2 days.
I installed Karmic 64-bit on a new Phenom X4 Quad-Core PC. I've replaced the stock CPU cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper TX3, enabled all fan control settings in the BIOS, switched their profiles on silent, enabled the Cool n' Quiet option as well but my CPU fan is still noisy and seem to be running up to the max number of RPM, thus ignoring BIOS specifications. Besides this I can tell there is something wrong with it since even the CPU is on idle or with just the regular browsing, media player operations, PC sometimes freezes or is automatically rebooted .
I installed lm-sensors and went through all the sensors-detect operations (output attached to this post) but it doesn't show anything else but the CPU and HDD temperature which is always 40 Celsius degrees.
control keys aren't working most of the time in Open Office. I can copy, cut and paste with the mouse, but Control+C/X/V/Z is not working at all. I also use intellij idea, there I have the same problem, but I can use its own defined control+alt+space. I've tried Abiword, the control keys worked at the begging but then after a while when I used control+something(C/X/V/Z), it always selected everything. Besides that, the control keys are working perfectly in nautilus, terminal, firefox, chrome, gedit. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.
I'm running Natty with the official Blender 2.57 32-bit build.This same problem occurs with previous version of Blender and Ubuntu, although not with Blender 2.4x or any other programs.Pressing the control key does nothing in Blender. Pressing 'Ctrl+S' causes the active object to scale, as if I just pressed 'S'. If I run 'killall gnome-settings-daemon', it temporarily works normally, but then I lose Gtk themes and icons and stuff.
I'm on a Dell Latitude D620, and I haven't messed with any keyboard settings.I know people using the same hardware and OS that can use Blender fine, so I'm guessing there's some sort of xinput configuration or something that got messed up somehow.
it's a while now that the volume control in gnome stopped working. I tried to reinstall gnome-media, but without success. The icon is present in the top bar and I can see the volume slider, but it simply doesn't change the volume.I'm using F15 on x86_64.
I've just started using gdb at my new job, and I'm having a small issue debugging C++ with it. After I execute "continue" or "run" through gdb, I'm not able to return control to gdb. Based on the documentation I read, I should be able to use Control-C to interrupt the program, and have control return to gdb.
This does not work on my setup. Not sure if it's related, but I'm debugging on a remote machine. I tried through PuTTY and xterm using Exceed XServer. In both cases, gdb does not respond to Control-C. This is quite annoying because I have to restart my program every time I want to set a breakpoint.
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Macbook Pro 6,2 and try as I might can't change the brightness of my screen whatsoever. I cant use "echo 100> /sys/devices/virtual/backlight/nvidia_backlight/brightness" because the folder does not exist. Pommed, when run using "sudo pommed -d" complains with "Failed to access brightness node: No such file or directory".
I have the mbp-nvidia-bl driver installed *only* (removed nvidia-bli because I had seen in other threads that the two conflicted). I've tried searching the forums and the web but nothing is helping me so far. Biggest roadblock for me using ubuntu is having the headache of using a much to dim screen(or currently a much too bright screen)
I have a white Macbook 7,1 and am running 11.04 beta 1. I have worked out almost everything, sound being the main thing that didn't work. The one thing I don't have working is my brightness control -- my laptop always displays at 100%. I tried installing pommed and the dkms package from the Mactel PPA, but nothing works yet. The wiki hasn't been updated to 7,1 for Maverick, let alone Natty.
I am having issues with Fedora 11 and audio. I have pulse audio running and configured. The volume control on the top panel (GDE) works properly, but i do not hear any volume until I move it up past 50%. I tested it with the advanced volume controls opened and it even shows the master volume not moving until the volume slider on the panel reaches at least 50%. Can anybody help with fixing this. It is very annoying. Thanks in advance for the support.
