Ubuntu :: Ctrl+alt+f5 Starts A Console \ Can't Find, Though, How To Change That

Sep 25, 2010

I can't find, though, how to change that. In DOSBox, ctrl+alt+f5 starts and stops video capture, but Ubuntu's command took precedence when I did that. I had to hard shut down before doing some searching and finding out ctrl+alt+f7 gets me out of there...that doesn't help me with the problem of taking video on DOSBox though. I went to ystem>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts to see if I could change the command or disable it, but it wasn't listed...so I'm stuck. I don't want ctrl+alt+f5 to bring me to a console, so how do I make it not do that?

Ubuntu :: Ctrl-Alt-Del Starts Enabled And Gets Disabled

May 26, 2010

I had been asking how to enable Ctrl-Alt-Del to call the gnome Logout/Poweroff or whatever is the hidden name of the program to logout from the GUI in a Hardy system.

Today I discovered that once logged in the GUI, it stared enabled but, after three or four succesive calls (or a certain amount of time), it became disabled.

I don't know whether the ouput of dmesg and syslog give a clue. There's a strange interrupt.

$ dmesg|tail
[ 34.323721] apm: BIOS not found.
[ 34.462563] sky2 eth0: enabling interface
[ 34.466384] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready

Ubuntu :: Cant Login To Console Using Ctrl+alt+f1

Sep 15, 2010

I am using kubuntu 10.04..i am a new guy here..

i unfortunately removed all my files from /home folder..

rm -rf ~ /. picasa / (ya..i know..)

As some of the files were really important i tried recovering data using foremost..i used the command

foremost -i /dev/sda1 -o /mnt/foremost

After execution of this command it prompted a process..it was downloading something..and i left the computer for an hour or so..when i return there was nothing on screen..so i reloaded the system..And after that when i try to login i get the error

"xsession: warning: unable to write to /tmp; xsession may exit with an error"..so when i googled for it i found its because there is no memmory in my /root ..so i tried login via console (tried ctrl+alt+f1..after the login screen appears..when i type ctrl+alt+f1 i get a black screen)..but nothings happening...

but the problem is when i type (ctrl+alt+f1) i am getting a black screen only...and just a cursor blinking..nothing else..ctrl+alt+f1-f6 give me the same result..and when i try (ctrl+alt+f7) it goes back to the screen with the error....how can i login to console now...

Ubuntu :: Ctrl-alt-f* Does Not Produce Virtual Console?

Mar 12, 2011

ve read some stuff regarding problems with virtual consoles not appearing for some graphics settings, but I think this problem is different.Just a few days ago I had no problem using ctrl-alt-f6 (for example) to get to a virtual console outside of the normal X environment. That no longer works. Nothing happens, no distorted screen, I'm just stuck in the normal X session that comes up as if I did nothing. I didn't make any configuration changes, though I suppose some update could have caused it?I may have read that this is some problem in grub2? If so, is there a way I can get around it without trying to switch back to grub1? I'd rather not mess too much with the bootloaders if I don't have to

Debian :: Console Login Displayed Before DM Starts

Aug 4, 2015

New to Linux in the last year, used Debian Wheezy off and on for a time - trying to build a system up from a minimum net-install, just to learn more about it.

I have a niggling little problem - either of understanding or configuration. I started with the min install and installed X using apt-get or aptitude. Then installed JWM, which I would start from the console via startx. I really liked this setup, since it was simple and I knew what was going on. This was all on Wheezy.

After the upgrade to Jessie (via dist-upgrade), I would get messages popping up "on top of" the console login when I booted. Stuff like "b43-loading firmware …" would pop up on screen while I was typing my login/password. This was kind of disconcerting (seemed like something must be misconfigured) but didn't effect functionality at all.

Eventually I decided to try a display manager, since that would (I thought) avoid the whole console login process and thus the weird overlapping messages. I installed LightDM through aptitude and it works great, but the console login is still displayed first (briefly, maybe 3-4 seconds) before the LightDM greeter takes over the screen.

It is there just long enough to confuse the unwary, who start typing their login name only to have the screen replaced by the LightDM login screen and have to start over. Obviously this isn't a big deal (everything works fine), but since the whole point of this project was to understand, I'm very curious if this is normal behavior (videos I've seen of folks installing Debian seem to show boot messages jumping straight to the DM without showing:

Debian GNU/Linux … tty1
debian login:

or if I've neglected to configure something that would allow boot directly into LightDM or hide the text console while LightDM loads or … something.

Debian Multimedia :: CTRL-ALT-F* Doesn't Work Anymore To Switch To Console?

Jan 26, 2010

not sure exactly when this broke, but for some reason I'm not able to use CTRL-ALT-F1 anymore to fall back to the first virtual console.I can kill X with CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE just fine, but I'd like to be able to get a normal shell to kill things when I've messed too much with graphical stuff.

Ubuntu :: Map Ctrl+W In Hebrew Layout(which Is Actually A Ctrl+') To Be A Ctrl+w?

Server :: Ubuntu 9.04 Server - Console Font Too Big And Starts Off Screen

Jan 4, 2010

The title pretty much says it all. Once I get past GRUB, the font becomes HUGE and starts off screen. It appears to be center zoomed because I cannot see the login prompt nor anything I type. It's not really an emergency, I installed OpenSSH during the OS installation and can just turn it on and log in over SSH or start up Webmin. It just bugs me that I cannot figure this out.

There is no graphical environment installed, so it's not a video card issue. I tried adding vga=ask as a kernel flag and then tried several options, but to no avail.

Debian Hardware :: Fn Key Works As CTRL Key - How To Change It

Nov 27, 2010

I have a laptop bought it Germany. It has a pretty standard keyboard, with the bottom left most keyboard being the Fn which enables controls on: Bluetooth, WiFi, Sleep and other functionality. My trouble is that both Ubunut, and Linux Mint Debian edition recognize this key as CTRL, thus not giving me the option to use these functions Im pretty clueless how to change it. Currently my console setup is giving this keyboard a standart 104-PC keyboard Just adding some info about this laptop:

product: TW8/SW8/DW8
vendor: Quanta
version: TBD
More info:

The bottom row of the keyboard has: Fn, Strg,Win, Alt, Space, Alt Gr, Menu,Strg, Left, Down, right keys. Is there a some one here who knows which layout is this ?

Debian :: How To Change TTY Resolution Ctrl Alt F1 Black Screen

Nov 18, 2015

Now that I'm more lucid I can adjust the format a bit. If I try opening the TTY the screen goes completely black after visualizing few artifact on the bottom of the screen.

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F7 brings me back safely to the GUI

So far I tried to modify the /etc/defaults/grub file to uncomment the grub resolution and the grub_terminal to no avail. Now at least it seams to waste some less time to load the grub (it took something like 15 sec before) but it lost the previous green/torquoise background and now it's white char on black background.

On a side note pressing C on the grub to reach the grub console gave me some answer I don't know how to deal with... I was trying to use vbeinfo but it didn't found the command and so I tried the insmod:

Photo(large) of the complete grub console session wrote:grub>
grub> videoinfo
List of supported video modes:
Legend: mask/position=red/green/blue/reserved
grub> videotest
error: no suitable video mode found.
grub> insmod vbe
error: file `/boot/grub/x86_64-efi/vbe.mod' not found

Software :: Change Bash Shortcut Keys Such As Ctrl-C?

Jul 5, 2010

I*am using Kubuntu 10.04. I would like to change some of the standard shortcut keys for bash (terminal).

I want:

Ctrl-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard.
Ctrl-V to paste from the clipboard into the terminal.
Ctrl-Z to undo.
Ctrl-Shift-C (or even better, Super-C) to terminate the command.
Ctrl-Shift-Z (or Super-Z) to be the background command.
I*don't even know what Ctrl-V did before, some I*won't worry about remapping it.

EDIT:*I*have no idea what is putting the * char after each "I". Maybe this is a non-breaking space?

Ubuntu :: Freezes Mouse After Changing A Tab (with Ctrl+tab, Alt+#) Or Closing It (ctrl+w)?

Nov 11, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and already am really annoyed by Firefox, which freezes my mouse after changing a tab (with ctrl+tab, alt+#) or closing it (ctrl+w). After about one second, i can continue working as usual. Changing Tabs by just clicking on one does not freeze anything...Maybe some of you would think now if I am crazy because of complaining about such a little thing, but it is really annoying if you are used to work fluently with ff.Edit:I today noticed, that not only shortcuts in firefox, but all Hotkeys freeze my mouse for a second. For examle ctrl+c, ctrl+v, super+e or anything else.Do you have any Idea what causes this behaviour? Reinstalling ubuntu didn't change anything

Ubuntu :: Change The Console Font?

Jul 11, 2010

Not the gnome-terminal fonts... That's easy... How about the font faces on tty1-6? I tried Slackware once... It was way back in my Linux experience so it struck to me as a clumsy and ill-managed operating system despite that the fact is the exact opposite... Well, as it appears, Slackware did have something about changing the console font since it mostly focused on terminal, you know, it booted up in terminal by default, for starters. Anyway, since Ubuntu is Linux as well, I guess there must be some way of changing the font face for the terminals, eh?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Change Resolution On Console

Jul 20, 2010

I have been running Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop just about since it came out.Prior to that I was running 9.10 on the same laptop. I was so happy with 9.10 I thought I could only be happier with 10.04.I was wrong.There are some things about 9.10 that I have *lost* in the transition to 10.04.These bother me quite a bit so much so that I have repeatedly considered going back to 9.10.Please keep in mind this all worked fine under 9.10 on exactly the same hardware.

1) When I connect the external VGA port on my laptop to my 32 Samsung TV it comes up as a 40 Samsung TV and it is impossible to set the correct resolution.This makes watching TV over the Internet via my notebook impossible (I used to use URL... and others).

2) I cannot change the resolution on the console (the TTY's 1 to 6). It used to come up as standard old fashioned VGA (80 columns by 25 rows of text) but now it is much smaller font and much larger console.The VGA= in GRUB does nothing. And this is the only suggestion I seem to be able to find. From my reading most people seem to like the large console w/ small font.I dislike it for the reason I will get into next

3) DOSEMU locks up my computer with a blank screen when running in super mode on the console.Pressing Ctrl+Alt+F# accomplishes nothing and either does Ctrl+Alt+Del.I have to press and hold the power button forcing a hard shutdown (at least this is the only solution I have found).
