Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded Laptop With Plugged In Usb Keyboard -> Laptop Keyboard Not Working?

Jun 29, 2010

I have upgraded my laptop to 10.04 while having my usb-keyboard plugged in.f I boot the laptop without a plugged in keyboard, the laptop keyboard is not working. It starts working as soon as I plug a usb-keyboard in though.Quite annoying if I take my laptop with me and the first thing after booting is to find a usb-keyboard to plug in Does anyone know where can I reconfigure this? [edit]I just found out, that the laptop keyboar seems to be in numlock mode... meaning that the keys [j,k,l] is mapped to [1,2,3] etc

Debian :: Laptop Keyboard Not Working After Change To KDE

Mar 9, 2016

I just reinstalled Debian 8.3.0 "Jessie" on my laptop using KDE as the desktop environment instead of GNOME. Using GNOME I had no problems with the keyboard or mousepad but now changing to KDE my keyboard and mousepad won't work. It was obviously working fine during the install but now won't work once I login my desktop. I'm using a USB keyboard and mouse in the meantime.

I've tried going into System Settings->Input Devices->Keyboard and changing the keyboard model. Originally it had installed by default as "Generic 101-key PC", and I tried swapping to "Asus Laptop" but that made no difference. I tried a few other random keyboard models but that didn't make a difference either.

My laptop model is an: ASUS U40SD.

Any commands I can type into bash that could track down the problem.

Debian Configuration :: Sid: Laptop Keyboard + Touchpad Not Working After Upgrade?

Apr 13, 2011

on my netbook I have a Debian unstable/sid system. A few days ago I did an apt-get (dist-)upgrade which I think also updated the X-Server. Since then my netbooks keyboard and touchpad are not working as soon as the desktop is started (I think gdm).
The Keyboard works during the Grub selection and also in recovery mode (Root Terminal), so I'm sure its not a hardware problem. Could it be that the X-Server unloads the kernel modules for those two devices?Also if I plug in a USB keyboard or mouce they are working.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Keyboard Not Recognised On Upgrade 9 To 10?

May 16, 2010

I tried to use the automatic upgrade to version 10 last night on my Acer Aspire 8930G. Everything seemed to work fine until I got to the reboot. At the reboot it tells me that it is running in low resolution mode because the nvidia drivers have been removed. That is fine except I cannot hit the enter button to accept the message either using the laptop keyboard or by restarting and using a USB keyboard.

I have a dual boot with windows and I'm averse to just reinstalling ubuntu because there is some data which would be annoying to lose.

Slackware :: Keyboard Not Working Unless Charger Plugged In

May 22, 2010

Slackware 13.0, dell vostro 1320. When I start up the laptop without the ac charger plugged in the keyboard doesn't work. This is the case when booting into runlevel 3 and 4. Then after restarting 3 or 4 times and getting sick of it, i plug the charger in, restart, get to the login screen and confirm that the keyboard works, unplug the charger and it's all good. I ssh into the laptop when the keyboard is not working and restart hald but it doesn't help. Btw, tried ubuntu and the problem wasn't there.

Ubuntu :: VI & Keyboard Config On A Newly Installed Laptop?

Jan 7, 2010

I've just installed ubuntu 9.10 on my laptop, and when I'm on vim, I can use arrow key normally in command mode, but in editing mode, if I use them, it print a letter, capital case + new line and doesn't move the cursor.

In putty I would try to play with the different type of keyboard settings (ESC[~, Linux, Xterm R6, VT400 etc...), but here, I don't know what to do.

At the installation time, I choose French/French keyboard.

Extra Question :


It's said to have GRUB2 by default, but at boot time it says Grub 1.97 beta...

Ubuntu :: Use Laptop Keyboard Shortcut To Disable Touchpad?

Apr 17, 2011

I have an Asus K6LIC laptop. In Windows if I press function+F9, it toggles my touchpad on and off. I'm wondering if I can get this functionality in Ubuntu 10.10. All other function keys work, except for this one. The only thing I can find is to permanently disable the touchpad, which is not what I want to do.

Ubuntu :: Numeric Keyboard Malfunction On Acer Laptop

Mar 25, 2011

I am running Ubuntu on an Acer 5742 laptop and running XP on Oracle Virtual box and plugged in externally (keyboard, mouse etc...) I have lost ability on both the laptop numeric keyboard (only the numeric keys) and the external keyboard when plugged in. This happened while I was working in Virtual box and running Windows XP.

When the laptop is on its own the numeric keyboard doesn't work (only numeric keys) either. I have toyed with the number lock and I have un-installed and re-installed both"keyboard input methods" and "input method switcher" within Ubuntu software centre to with no change. Not that I bought the damn computer for the numeric keyboard but it should work.

Hardware :: Trouble With Laptop Keyboard On Packard Bell EasyNote R4

Jul 22, 2010

I'm having trouble with the keyboard on the Packard Bell EasyNote R4. I'm using the standard xorg driver that gets configured by the Debian Lenny installer and the problem is that the keys sometimes generate weird keycodes or something, causing unwanted behaviour of the window manager (XFCE 4.4) such as creating a new terminal window or shading windows. Could the keyboard be faulty or does someone know of a driver that would work better with this model?

Fedora Hardware :: Toshiba A665 Laptop Keyboard Backlight No Workee?

Jan 3, 2011

I have a Toshiba A665-S6092. Core i7 CPU and I installed a Kingston SSD so it's up to the job. It supposedly has keyboard backlight but I can't figure out how to get that function functioning. Now, I know this ain't real important but I have a feeling other people might like to have that too so I'm asking. Does anybody in Fedora Land have any experience getting Toshiba keyboard backlight working? Maybe I'm wrong about it having this option, I can't find any mention of it using all the tools at my disposal. lspci, the Gnome device lister, xorg keyboard config, etc. Apparently everything except the right thing. I've Googled until I'm Googleyed and searched this forum and LinuxQuestions.org (which seems to have been hijacked by Slackware fanatics over the last few years) and other forums like JustLinux, Linux.com. I can't remember them all. I've looked through source code that I could make no sense of and wondered why I was pretending to be qualified to do that until I realized how important this has become to me, although it is as I said a relatively trivial matter. If anybody knows and wants additional information I'll be more than happy to supply it. I'm running the default kernel for Fedora 14 64 bit,

Ubuntu :: CPU Seems To Be Capped When Laptop Is Plugged In

Feb 23, 2010

I recently started using a Lenovo Thinkpad SL410 and started noticing how everything slows down whenever I plug the power in. It looks like the CPU is getting maxed by normal usage, just a web browser running. As soon as I unplug it, everything goes back to normal. It's almost as if things were backwards. Shouldn't it cap the CPU when it's running on battery? I wouldn't really want that behavior either, but that would be more understandable.

Fedora :: Laptop Always Says That Headphones Plugged In

Apr 14, 2011

I currently have a dell studio xps 16.. I'm new to Linux and can not seem to figure out how to force my laptop to play from its on board speakers. The laptop seems to believe there is headphone attached to the port constantly.. I figured this out when I use to run windows.. and my skype calls always activated the speakers.. so i know theres nothing wrong with the speakers (well i hope not). Is there any possible way to ignore the sound ports and force play from the speakers?

Ubuntu :: Fglrx Freezing Laptop When Power Not Plugged In?

Dec 23, 2010

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545 with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300 series card. I need proper OpenGL support, so it appears I need the fglrx driver. After I install it, I experience very odd freezes related to the power cable:

- It freezes if I rapidly take the plug in and out a few times

- It freezes if I run on battery power for a random amount of time between 10 and 20 minutes. This happens if I boot up on battery power, or if I take out the plug while it's on (assuming the first kind of freeze doesn't happen)

EDIT: I have changed absolutely nothing about the drivers, but now those specific freezes don't happen. Instead, I just got a random freeze, while the power cable was in and not being touched.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Hangs Forever When Laptop Cooler Plugged In

Apr 29, 2011

I have a laptop cooler that sits under my laptop and has 4 USB ports on the back. It plugs into my laptop via USB and that is the only source of power it has. The issue is when I try to boot Ubuntu with it plugged in it hangs forever and if I unplug it then it seems to boot up just fine. This happens even if nothing is plugged into the ports on the cooler. I also notice that if I plug the cooler in after Ubuntu is fully booted it will work but does not see things plugged into it every time.

- You will find that deleting:

- will allow hald to start the correct module:
- instead of trying to start a non-existant file:

My theory is that since hald is the same version in 12.2 and 13.0, had believed that the cache file held valid information, when in fact it did not. I did not think to check the modification date before deleting the file.

Ubuntu :: Remote Doesn't Work Without Keyboard / Mouse Plugged In - Restore Its Functionality?

Oct 11, 2010

I (finally!) have Mythtv working under 10.04. I use the Haupaugge DVB-T card with its remote. Whilst setting up the kit this worked OK. When I unplugged the keyboard and mouse the system prior to installing it next to the TV appeared to have stopped responding to the remote. In fact it seems to be responding to a number of the remote keys but not the OK and Go keys which isn't enough to run Mythtv.

I don't think leaving a keyboard & mouse plugged in is going to be domestically acceptable.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to restore lirc functionality?

Hardware :: Laptop Battery Discharges Even With A/C Adapter Plugged In

Mar 24, 2011

A couple of days ago, my laptop battery starting discharging at random times. I could rectify this by either pushing the A/C cable in or rotating it slightly. Now the battery discharges unless the A/C cable is pushed in constantly. A few months ago I had a similar problem, though it was accompanied by the computer randomly shutting off. The battery had to be removed and reinserted before I could successfully power the machine back on. Purchasing a new A/C cable fixed this problem quite well. I suspect it may be the battery this time. The gnome battery monitor in LMDE is going completely nuts, announcing I have five minutes of power left and then happily informing me that I have 10 hours 42 minutes only a few moments later.

Ubuntu Networking :: Laptop Locks Hard On Login Screen If No Ethernet Cable Plugged In

Jul 15, 2011

Acer 5250-BZ475 laptop, fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04. Boots up beautifully as long as an ethernet cable is plugged in. Otherwise, I get to the login screen and have just enough time to start typing in my password before the entire system hangs hard - no mouse, no keyboard, can't even get to a terminal, nothing. Have to hard power off the machine.

It seems to be a problem with the wireless card trying to initialize, but there doesn't seem to be a bios option to disable wireless on this laptop, so I'm a bit at a loss as to how to fix this problem. By the way, wireless works fine if I boot up with a cable connected - I can see all the wireless access points in my area no problem. I just can't boot without a wired connection, which makes my laptop more or less useless when I'm away from home with it.
