Ubuntu :: Wireless Keyboard Is Typing Random Letters Not Even Touching?

Aug 5, 2010

I have a wireless keyboard and for some reason it is typing random letters, symbols, and numbers while I am not even touching the keyboard. I tried a different wireless keyboard and that worked for awhile, but even that started to do the same thing. I plugged in a cord keyboard and that has been working fine, but I am unable to type my password if it goes into sleep mode or select my windows partition. It's very confusing and I plan on reinstalling both windows and linux anyways it's that time, but I have to figure this problem out before I do.

Debian :: Keyboard Skipping Letters And Continuously Typing Same Letter

Jan 30, 2016

I recently built my first computer which has Debian Jessie running on it.

Everything was running great until I updated the computer a few days ago. After doing that and turning it on a few hours later, the keyboard started missing letters (as in it wouldn't register every key click) and was also typing some letters over and over again. It seems that it doesn't matter what key I press, the same problem occurs.

I tried using the keyboard on my laptop; it worked perfectly. I also tried connecting up another keyboard I had laying around and that seemed to have the same issue. Both keyboards are mechanical.

OpenSUSE :: Typing Greek Letters Instead Of English Letters

Dec 12, 2010

Recently I faced a problem in typing in English in OpenSuse 11.3.When I try to type in English it shows me Greek letter and worse than that I think it is really Greek (not only in font) because when I enter my passwords or try to type a command in terminal I get error,I tested with UK and USA and all other English languages and I still have this problem. I even do reset in my keyboard layout setting and in KDE setting but it didn't help.

Programming :: Bash: Generating A Random LETTERS Sequence?

May 12, 2011

I tried googling around but i cant find anything related to this: everyone seems just interested in random numbers, so when it comes to random letters there is a lack of informations. However, i am trying to figure out a wait to get a random letters string that matches a simple rule: it must be a sequence of consonant+vowel. So for example, these are some 6 letters strings i would like to obtain: wolupa, tafoke, zewevu, cupimo.

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 :: Activate Onscreen Keyboard OnBoard WITHOUT Typing?

Jul 23, 2011

My keyboard on my laptop has died but I'm on a working vacation, so in the meantime I really need to use my laptop. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to activate the on screen keyboard (onBoard) without typing, except at the log-in screen. There must be some sequence of mouse clicks to get there, otherwise that was a serious design flaw. The other posts I found here explained how to do it but only with typing involved.)

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Delayed Typing When Xserver Starts

May 29, 2010

My keyboard was working fine then all of a sudden it started acting up. Now when I boot into linux the keyboard works fine till I start the Xsever. At first I thought that the keyboard stopped working so I restarted it and still had the same problem. I ended up restarting it 8 times then I finally started to hit the keyboard now when I was done hitting it I kinda kept my hand on it and noticed it still types but I have to hold it for a long period of time for it to start typing. I have to hold the button for like 1-2 Sec for it to type one letter. Then I checked the keyboard setting and they were fine.

OpenSUSE :: Response To Keyboard Typing Delayed?

May 21, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.3 on my Lenovo Thinkpad X61. It has been running fine for many months, but yesterdaychanged. For example, between the two previous words I had actually typed "something" ("yesterday something changed") but it was lost. I type at normal speed but the machine cannot keep up. Hopelessly annoying. This happens in every application I have checked. The only unusual thing I did yesterday was to load a bunch of photos off a relative's digital camera. I'm concerned I may have picked up spyware.

OpenSUSE :: Faroese Keyboard Layout - Missing The Letters

Jun 3, 2011

I've been using using Ubuntu and Arch with gnome for ages, but after the whole gnome3 and unity hubub, I decided to go with kde and openSUSE. and I'm completely loving it. However, I have one problem Ubuntu (gnome) has the option to choose the Faroese keyboard layout, but in openSUSE with kde, it's not an option. Now I really need to be able to write a lot, so I need the regular Faroese layout, otherwise I'm missing the letter "ð". openSUSE should really implement Faroese into the keyboard layout options

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.

Fedora :: Keyboard Gone Wonky - Speaker Beeps On Typing

Aug 11, 2009

The keyboard is acting strange ever since having to reinstall the gnome desktop, and sound alsa and pulseaudio. The lastest kernel update was what started the whole mess. What is happening is as I type about every 4 or so letter, the pc speaker beeps, and the status leds for caps lock, num lock and the third status leds turn on at random. When I hold down a key and have auto repeat kick in then for each character typed, there is an associated beep. I checked the keyboard setting in user preferences and there is a setting to enable beep on type, but it's not enabled, nor does changing the setting cause a change. I'm pretty sure it's just gnome related, as it doesn't occur in kde, but I can't be 100 % at this point.

Software :: Keyboard In Slackware-13.0 - Getting Double Letters All Over The Place - Cursor Blink Has Slowed Too Near Zero

Jun 1, 2010

I have XFCE and xorg-server-1.7.7 in slackware64-13.0. I have my keyboard set up in xorg.conf. X ignores that and takes info from hal. So I have a US keyboard, when I have a UK/IE keyboard actually. When I added openoffice, i found I was getting double letters am getting double letters all over the place, and the cursor blink has slowed too near zero. So when I want to remove them again, the mouse will not land the cursor in the middle of a word to delete the extras. An average of 3 double letters are happening each line. Mouse sometimes works to remove them, usually not. I have set 'repeat delay' at maximum, 'repeat speed' & 'blink delay' at minimum. No effect. Disabled key repeat - still happens.

Ubuntu :: Random Freeze - Neither The Mouse Or The Keyboard Will Respond

Jun 14, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04, randomly while working in gnome with no particular application I get a freeze periodically. Neither the mouse or the keyboard will respond. I am running it on a lenovo Z61m laptop. I have had previous experience with Posix systems but I am a recent migrant from XP as my primary operating system. I never had such an issue with this computer which leads me to believe that it is not a hardware issue.

Ubuntu :: Random Mouse/keyboard Freeze In The Login Screen?

May 1, 2010

I downloaded and burnt the Kubuntu 10.04 release to a CD. I tried to install it. First time, couldn't find the disks and eventually it froze. Ok, second try, when it's contacting the "time server" (or whatever) another freeze, but this time I notice everything is running fine and then get a nice little image with the current time (increasing seconds and all). Third attemp, clicked the "update this installer" and it went fine. "Yay!" I thought. Well, a few minutes in my beautiful 10.04 system and again, another freeze. Hit the power button and to my surprise a "Shutdown" dialog shows up with a countdown. After 30 seconds it logs out and mouse is working again. I log back in and come here to write this long post, and as I was writing the title "Random mouse/ke..." guess what? Yeah, it froze again. And the little bar that goes after the writing continued happily blinking. Hit the power button but this time mouse and keyboard were still frozen in the login screen.

Short version: mouse and keyboard randomly freeze while the rest of the system apparently work fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Loses Mouse / Keyboard Inputs At Random

May 28, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 LTS last week (32 bit, gnome desktop, no desktop effects). The system was quite stable before the upgrade (it's usually on 24/7 with uptimes in the dozens of days), but ever since updating to 10.04, the system loses all mouse and keyboard input at random times.

I can still ssh into the system fine and reboot it in an orderly fashion from a laptop, but I'd rather that it wouldn't freeze like this in the first place

I've tried service gdm start / stop from an ssh session to see if it's an xorg-related problem, but sadly that did not help in recovering mouse / keyboard input.

I also tried unplugging and re-plugging the ps/2 keyboard and the usb mouse, but sadly that also didn't help.

I don't see any weird messages in dmesg, so it's not a kernel oops either it seems.

I'm using the proprietary nvidia driver if that matters.

General :: Random Keyboard Pseudo-failure?

Jan 9, 2011

Occasionally when I start typing into a text box, it will not enter text until I go to another window or text box and click back in. This seems to happen at random without any pattern or to any specific applications more than others. I can still use alt-tab and similar commands, so I know it's not the hardware. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx using a Microsoft Multimedia keyboard and I am running SCIM for Japanese input, but I almost always have it set to English, and it can be set t

Slackware :: "random" Xorg Resets - Quickly Typing In The GUI A "2" Resets X?

Apr 5, 2010

when I was entering a sed command, with a back-reference to the scnd set of parenthesis. 2 reset X, or so I though ... I did some experimenting, and lo and behold, I could reproduce the behaviour even on the xdm login screen, when I typed in my sed expression as the name. Not every time, not accurately, but maybe 3 out of 10 times I can reset X by pressing 2 on the numeric row in a quick succession with other keys, and the I at first thought was required to trigger the behavior is not necessary at all. Nothing in the X-log, nothing in ~/.xsession-errors.

I'm annoyed, and as X is quite sizable and spawns a truckload of processes I'm highly reluctant to try and reproduce the behaviour under the control of strace (mind you, since it seems to be "speed" related it maybe wouldn't even occur under strace ;}). I'm running Slack64 13.0 on a Thinkpad R500 with an Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics chipset, can't think of anything else that might be special with this hardware in regards to X.

Slackware :: Installing / After Loading Kernel It Asks For Keyboard Configuration, But Keyboard (usb Wireless) Doesn't Work?

Jul 18, 2010

I'm trying to install slackware 32 bit 13.1.After loading kernel it asks for keyboard configuration, but keyboard (usb wireless) doesn't work.

Keyboard works on the old 13.0 installation, on bios and also in the boot options of 13.1 installation cd.

I've tried removing legacy usb support and changing usb2.0 speed from high to full. Nothing changed.

Anybody with this strange problem? (kernel of setup seems also to detect it correctly as a trust keyboard).

Ubuntu Networking :: 64 Bit Bcm4311 Wireless Random Kernel Panics?

Sep 22, 2010

I have this weird issue which only appears when I am using 64 bit Ubuntu. Every now and then my laptop seems to go into a kernel panic (system unresponsive, numlock and scrollock lights flash repetitively) only when I am using the broadcom wireless. I can connect to my wireless router and use the internet and local network, but eventually, kablamo, crash, bang, boom. The only way out of the crash is to power off completely. After repowering, the wireless network is fine until the next crash. There does not seem to be a pattern or time period to cause this crash either. I have purged network manager(which I couldn't get to use my wireless) and am using wicd, which allows me to connect wirelessly.

Here is the details of my system:

Dell inspiron 1520
lspci (snipped)
0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g WLAN (rev 01)

Debian Hardware :: Random Wireless LAN Disconnects

Aug 14, 2014

I have installed Debian Wheezy on my laptop today, which went relativly smoothly. The only problem that is left (for now) is that my wireless LAN disconnects 1-2 times every 30 minutes, just to reconnect a few seconds later. Obviously that is very annoying, especially when watching streams on twitch, videos on youtube and so on.A thread I found on google suggested to use the command dmesg right after my wireless lan connection drops. So I waited for the next disconnect, issued the command and got the following output:

Code: Select allwlan0: deauthenticated from 00:1f:3f:d4:25:6a (Reason: 14)
wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:1f:3f:d4:25:6a by local choice (reason=14)

I wondered what that reason code meant and found this website, which states that the code 14 stands for: Message integrity code (MIC) failure
