Ubuntu :: Keystrokes Not Getting In The Buffer While Saving?
Jan 4, 2011
Issue: My wife can type about 70wpm. And uses the computer to write short stories. She has been bitten before and as a results saves often. In fact she CTRL+S (saves) at the end of most sentences and every paragraph out of habit. In MS Word she could keep typing while the computer saved, and once MS Word was done saving it would drop all the buffered text onto the page. OpenOffice3.2 doesn't work this way. She has discovered that while it is saving and she is still typing the text doesn't go into the buffer and she looses the text she has typed. She is reporting to me that she looses a couple of words since the saving takes about 1-3 seconds.
My thoughts before I get home tonight: I was thinking of whipping out the video camera and showing everyone.Switch to LibreOfficeSee if it happens in other applications, maybe plop her down in gedit and see what happens, it could be an when writing to HDD keyboard buffer doesn't work.
The goal was to remote desktop to my linux box from my windows machine, I went down the path of TightVNC. Installed and ran it.. thought I was all clear.. however the keyboard keystrokes are all jumbled, and seem to be all over the shop. (i.e.: when I press 'p' it actually comes out as 'X' etc. Happens for all keystrokes. Had a quick look around but haven't found any information on it. Uninstalled tightvnc server and installed vnc4server and it resolved the issue, shrug.
So I've noticed that some applications block keystrokes and input from reaching Ubuntu. Most recently I got the Linux version of Unreal Tournament 2004 running. Problem is that when I'm playing Unreal it captures all input, so when I decide the game is too loud or too quiet, rolling my volume wheel doesn't adjust the volume. I either have to pause the game so it releases my mouse(only in windowed mode), or exit altogether, adjust the volume, and restart the game. Is there a way to change this?
I've been playing a fair amount of Minecraft. Awesome game, but I really dislike that the mouse buttons bindings aren't editable. I was wondering if there was a program out there for Linux that can remap a mouse button (Like [Right Click]) to a key on your keyboard. (Like the [Spacebar]) I've done some digging around, but nothing shows up to edit the three standard mouse buttons, just the extended ones.
whenever I type certain things (backspace when nothing left to delete, tab to autocomplete in terminal, etc.) the screen will randomly go dim and then go back after a few seconds. it also happens when I try to use the rain or write with fire options.(though this might be normal)
I have a script that toggles my touchpad on and off and I assigned it a custom keystroke using gconf-editor. It worked fine until I upgraded to Natty and now I can't make it work anymore. I checked and the script is still the value of 'command_1' and the same keystroke (<Alt>t) is still the value of run_command_1 in the universal keybindings. But, for whatever reason, when I hit <Alt>t, nothing happens. I've tried using assigning different keystrokes, but nothing has worked.
I have a piece of software that attempts to recognise when a hotkey has been pressed in order to activate functions, this program is designed for use on Windows systems so I am currently running it through the tool called 'Wine.'
When I am in the program it detects the key I wish to assign, it then allows me to save the settings which remain present once the program has been relaunched. However, both with and without the given program in focus it does not detect the given keystrokes.
I have attempted to make Wine use dinput.dll in native Windows form, rather the my system default however this did not resolve the issue. Even though it did make the program save my keystroke in a Windows format.
I have a home network with 5 pcs that have Windows XP. I have another computer that has Ubuntu 9.04 server, Squid, and Dansguardian.
The proxy server is able to monitor and report all websites that have been visited. The report is sorted by the ip address from each of the windows pcs.
This is my question: Is there some software that can be installed on the proxy server that will act as a keylogger...monitoring the keystrokes that are being typed in on the Windows pcs and then generate a report, sorted by ip address, of the keystrokes for each of the windows pcs.
I know that I can install a keylogger on each pc, but I think that it would be better if it was on the proxy server monitoring all the computers.
I just installed Kubuntu 10.04 dual booted with Windows XP Home. It worked OK until I tried to reboot. Then, when the GRUB boot list came up, there was no response to the keyboard cursors or other keys, so I was unable to select any OS other than the default. Right now, I can't access Windows at all.
Any solution to this? One person suggested enabling USB in BIOS, but I found nothing relevant there. Another suggested I use a PS2 keyboard, which I did, but no change...same problem.
If I can't get a solution to that, how do I change the GRUB configuration to make Windows the default? 10.04 doesn't have the same kind of GRUB boot config file that I recall using the last time I worked with Kubuntu, way back around version 6 0r 8.
I'm using Debian (Stetch at the moment). Since a couple of days i noticed that some keystrokes get not recognized by the system, which is really annoying if i type something. It also happens sometimes that a random key gets pressed. For example if i want to type "Hello world", I get "Helllllllllllllo, world", the system would print the "l" character, for example, as long as i don't press any other key. I have a similar problem with my mouse, sometimes it would just get stuck and would not recognise any movement or key presses for a couple of seconds.
In the attempt to solve other problems () I got now this new one.Whatever I type, every character is displayed (and interpreted) mutiple times.rice for the sake of precision.It's happening with both the internal keybaord (it's a laptopt) andh an external USB keyboard.In order to work I'n now using the on screen keyboard of my KDE.To log in I had to enable the automatic login.
I use many different terminals during the course of my working day and frequently have to adjust my interaction to each unique type. For example, when interacting with bash via my work gnome-terminal I can use ctrl-arrow to skip over words, like most test editors allow. On the other hand, my xterm at home can't interpret this action and spits out a chunk of binary gibberish whenever I use this command.
I think that the behaviour of bash is consistent, it's just that the xterms treat keyboard events differently, depending on their configuration. Can someone confirm for me that this correct?, if yes, how can I calibrate the terminal to treat my keystrokes in the manner I desire?
My requirement is to save files before shutting the Linux machine down, unattended ie: when the user is not near the machine. This is done whenever the UPS battery is about to die, so that the files get saved. open-Office/text-editor applications that can be saved using keystrokes will have to be found from the running processes and keystrokes should be sent to them from a C program that was started in non-graphics stage. ie: from a C program that forks into memory as a daemon before xwindows part starts. How to I send keystrokes to a running application? (like cotrol + F and then wait and then send next set of keystrokes till the file is saved as a new file or as the same file itself), either from C program or a script?
I snaptic installed xmacro. I do not see it show up anywhere. Lost. I need a macro that can record keystrokes to reset my cable/router modem combo. I now use autohotkey. But I cannot virtual machine this, because it would need to raise up a ms windows explorer, something that cannot be done in a virtual machine on guest OS.
I have a lil' problem with a new project. I'd like to find out how to set the ability to change to the next track in a playlist by using ongly the scroll wheel of a standard usb mouse. The objective is to assign a keystroke or a command to both mouse button 4 and mouse button 5 (scroll wheel up and scroll wheel down), so that a program like rythmbox or vlc would skip to the next or previus song in the playlist.
I have to give it up for the Ubuntu developers. It is nearly impossible to exploit a simple stack overflow. I'm studying overflows for a project so I need it to work. I set /proc/sys/kernel/randomize_va_space to 0 and when I compiled my program I used -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 and -fno-stack-protector. But for some reason no matter how much input I enter it won't overwrite the EIP. What is stopping this from working that other linux versions don't have? And does anyone know of a way to bypass it?
i got major problems with mencoder.I work like this.1.) Demux Audio.2.) 2 Passes Encode. The second Encode includes the Audio.And there i got the problem:Too many audio packets in the buffer: (4100 in 1043395 bytes).Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.I tried likely anything possible.How to fix that ?Before that i got the issue with demuxing the audio where i got a massive amount of "Too many buffered pts" errors. I overcame this by adding the nocorrect-pts option.
I've got some high quality videos I want to run on vlc, but they require a higher buffering rate then the default for vlc. With the default the video skips every second or so and pixelates now and again. I've run the video on vlc on windows before and I found a buffer rate to change to make the video run smoothly, however, I don't remember what the value I changed was and when I looked through the ubuntu vlc options I didn't recognize it immediately.
I'm often playing videos from my external hard disk, and, well, it has issues. It'll often spin down and it often takes 5-10 seconds to spin back up in order to keep reading files. This is really terrible for video playback, as it'll often completely hang until the drive spins back up. Is there a way that I can tell VLC to set a larger buffer to at least give me more buffer into the future so the drive will have time to spin up when the buffer runs out?
I'm using ushare 1.1 with my xbox360 and I'm trying to stream an avi file. It loads up ok and starts to play then after a minute it stops and loads up more of the video. I seem to remember this happening with my ps3 and mediatomb as well. Is there something I can change on my router (bt home hub)? I have enabled port forwarding for the port that ushare is running on. here's my ushare.conf
