Ubuntu :: Keyboard Keys Type Different Letters?

Aug 8, 2011

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.

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 9.10 On PS3 - Keyboard Doesn't Type?

Jan 28, 2010

The title says it all. I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on my PS3, but the keyboard isn't typing. I can't complete the install, because I can't type anything. I've followed all the steps properly, everything goes smoothly, the mouse works just fine, and the capslock and numlock lights light up on the keyboard, and toggle when I press the corresponding buttons. The keyboard even works at the kboot prompt. After I choose the partition to use, I have to enter my information to continue. Without being able to type, I can't progress. The keyboard obviously works, since I can type just fine at the kboot prompt.This one's got me scratching my head. I'm going to try a 9.04 cd tomorrow, see if that works, but I was really hoping to get 9.10 on there.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Type Letters With Diacritical Marks Using Latvian Keyboard Layouts

Jan 13, 2010

I have added a Latvian keyboard layout to my Ubuntu 9.10 system (Russian as the system language). I cannot type Latvian letters with diacritical marks. I chose an apostrophe-based keyboard layout, so that I get the letter I need by pressing an apostrophe before. For example, to get ā, I would press 'a.The problem is, when I press ' followed by a letter or space bar, nothing appears on the screen. I continue typing as normal, but each time I press an apostrophe, the next character I press displays nothing on the screen. I have tried installing a Latvian language pack through System -> Administration -> Language Support. It was generally a useful addition. But it did not solve the problem. I still could not type Latvian. After that, I tried removing the Latvian layout from settings and adding it again. It did not help. I tried removing the layout, restarting my computer, and adding the layout back. The problem was not resolved.

I have tried different Lativan layouts (with tilde, with F, and standard). I had the same problem regardless of the layout I used. I browsed dozens of forum threads, and in one of them I found a workaround for this problem. For example, to type �, I hold down Shift and Control together, and while holding them press u0160 (because 0160 is a hex code for � in the character map). The first 0 is not significant, so to save time I type u160. I looked up the hex codes for the letters I need in Applications -> Accessories -> Character Map. In that application, at the bottom of the window, for each letter there is a code U+(four hex digits) e.g. U+012A. I wrote out all the codes I need on a small paper slip and stuck it to my monitor.Entering symbols this way is rather inconvenient. But at least it is possible.How to enter Latvian letters using just a Latvian keyboard layout? Is it a bug I should file? Would be great to find out.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - USB Keyboard Error (Cannot Type For Few Secs)

Sep 13, 2010

I am using an external USB keyboard to my laptop. Suddenly (after using this keyboard for 6 months), some randomly times I need to press the button 6-7 times before something appears on screen. This happens randomly, I may be able to type a whole paragraph without problem, and suddenly I can't type anymore for few seconds. My system is opensuse 11.3 and it happened last friday 9/10 ( if it is related to any update). I tested the keyboard to another pc and it is working. I tested another keyboard to my laptop and I still have the same problem.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Keyboard Won't Type Upper-case Characters?

Mar 14, 2009

Since yesterday I have been having a strange and fairly aggravating keyboard problem. For some reason I am sometimes unable to type upper-case characters. My shift key doesn't behave normally. If I type shift-C, for example, nothing happens; if I try it several times, sometimes the character will eventually appear, sometimes preceded by a ) character. What's worse, some key combinations, such as shift-I, kill the brightness on the screen. After this happens a couple of times, the mouse freezes, and only a reboot will restore it. This does not seem to be remedied by logging out of the session (either gnome or KDE) and into another session. The problem seems to affect both desktop environments.

This problem seems to be intermittent. For example, it seems to be working normally now, but about five minutes ago GNOME gave me a bug reporting window on boot and informed me that the keyboard-switcher panel applet had crashed. I have tried exciting to a console with ctrl-alt-F1 while my keyboard is behaving in this way, and have found that my keyboard does not work correctly in the console either.

I would normally use several keyboard layouts as I need to write in several languages, but I have turned them all off and reset the keyboard control panels to defaults in both environments, and I am still experiencing the problem.

Fedora :: FireFox About:config \ When Type Something In The Address Bar That Is Not A Url?

Feb 6, 2011

I would like to set my FireFox up so that when I type something in the address bar that is not a url, it will automatically do a google search. I have done this before, but that was a while ago and I can't remember what settings to change in about:config.Currently, when I type something that is not a url, it performs a search and then automatically opens the first web page that it finds, like a "I'm feeling lucky" search. I just want to see a google list.

Slackware :: File Type Handlers In Firefox

Jul 16, 2011

I like to set firefox to ask me every time what to do when downloading a file. This works well if I want to save to disk, but if I want to use an application I don't get a dropdown with applications to choose, but a browse button which requires the application to be typed every time. To make it a bit clearer, if I have clicked on a pdf file I get this: [URL]. How do I get okular listed in a dropdown instead of the browse button?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't View PDF In FIrefox When File Type Is Application / Octet-stream

Oct 23, 2010

In Firefox, when I try to download a PDF document from a particular website, I get the message, "Unable to open document. File type unknown (application/octet-stream is not supported.)" Yet the same PDF document loads fine in Konquerer. Am I missing a plug-in or something?

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) and Firefox 3.6.11, which has an entry for PDF document under Edit �> Preferences on the Applications tab that says, "Use MozPlugger 1.13.3...".

Software :: Setting Association Between PLS File Type And A Given Media Player In Firefox?

Jun 11, 2011

Kernel, Slackware 12.0 When I click on some audio stream links in my web browser (Mozilla Firefox), the stream comes in a URL ending in .pls, usually listen.pls. As I want mplayer to play it and not the default player, I intend to make the first the default one. In Firefox ( I can do Edit>Preferences>Content>File Types>Manage and change the actions associated with each file type. However, if the type is, say, PDF, I can can only change the action if a PDF file has anytime been downloaded. So, the same goes for a PLS file.

You have an example of the kind of link I talk about here: [URL] In the case of a radio broadcast audio stream, I am not downloading it, I think. At least, the Download window does not open. The Download window not having open itsef, the PLS type does not appear in the window Edit>...>File Types>Manage leads to. And so, I cannot change the action. The action would be 'Open them with this application': mplayer.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Spell Checker Keyboard Shortcut

Jan 5, 2010

I was wondering if there is a keyboard shortcut for spell check suggestions in firefox. My requirement is actually to work in a website which does not allow right click. When I encounter a red underlined word in the text I typed, I have to copy and paste the same to another tab of firefox [of some other site]to get the alternate suggestions/right spelling. Any tweak to change the button binding from right click to double click or Alt click etc will also do.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Restrict Other Programs From Recognizing Keyboard

Mar 3, 2011

Every time I look at firefox (i.e. bring it to the foreground), and when I go back to programs like terminal, GVIM, or pidgin, they won't recognize my keyboard unless I click on some specific thing. For example, I have to click the top of GVIM and pidgin and drag it around a bit, then I can type in those programs. For terminal I have to switch to a different tab and switch back before I can do anything. For some other programs, simply pressing "control-z" to undo will make the program not recognize the keyboard until some action with the mouse is done. This started to happen a few days ago after I tried to install scim to type Chinese (may or may not have any thing to do with it).

Ubuntu :: Weird Keyboard In Firefox - Open New Tab When Ctrl+click A Link

Feb 4, 2010

I have this little problem with my keyboard. When in Firefox, I have to ctrl+click a link about three times before there is any reaction and a new tab is opened with that link. There is not much chance that there is some physical impediment in the keyboard because all of my other keyboard shortcuts involving ctrl work fine, and I have disassembled and cleaned the keyboard on my netbook (eeepc 1008ha).

General :: Mandriva 2010: Map Keyboard Key To Firefox Search Bar?

Dec 10, 2009

I have a Nortek Diva keyboard and my machine runs Mandriva. In Mandriva 2009, pressing the "magnifying glass" button on my keyboard took me straight to the Firefox Search bar. Fantastic! Now that I've upgraded to Mandriva 2010, however, pressing the same button just launches the search engine as a new tab (okay, I can live with that), but the cursor is not active in the Search field.

I've been to the Nortek site but there are no drivers for the keyboard, Linux or otherwise. And no Nortek keyboard configurations appear in the Mandriva Linux Control Centre. I know how to use xev to capture keystrokes. What I'd like to know is, how can I map the keyboard button to position a cursor in the Firefox Search bar? I use Search A LOT, so this is really slowing me down. I bet it's something like "firefox %search".

Ubuntu :: Changing File System Type To Another Filesystem Type - Does It Effect On Data?

Feb 4, 2011

In my system around 73gb(pc-desktop) i have,1 primary partition(windows)-25gb, 1-extended partition(remaining gb) 3 logical partitions were there in (under) extended partition in one of the logical partition is d:drive. in my hard disk d: drive is -/dev/sda5

previosly i was fat -file system , (d:drive-/dev/sda5), i remember i changed the d: drive(d:drive-/dev/sda5) file system to ext4file system ,with following command using terminal

After doing(changing the file system)this one ,i couldnt see the d:drive data

By doing that

1q) Did i reformatted the partition? i think the new filesystem(ext4) has no knowledge of the data that was on it when it had a FAT filesystem.

2q) How to do undo operation,i tried to change the filesystem type to fat/ntfs in terminal using command --sudo mkfs -t FAT /dev/sda5.

Result:its showing text message-'mkfs.FAT: No such file or directory'(not in single quote)

I had very imp data in d:drive
