If you are using the "English (US)" keyboard layout now, you need to add a keyboard layout that supports those special keys. Go to System Settings - Keyboard - Text Entry, and click the + button under the list of language input methods / keyboard layouts. You need something like "English (US, international)". If your keyboard is not a standard US keyboard, ...

Looks like there is an app out there called Synergy. I'm just discovering this, so I know nothing about it. I just stumbled across this article: http://www.linuxandubuntu.com/home/share-mouse-and-keyboard-with-your-windows-linux-machines-with-synergy-1-7-1

Both of these solutions were a bit too hacky for my taste, so I dug a little deeper. The solution I found only uses dconf-editor. Just open dconf-editor and search (ctrl+F) for xkb-options and update the value. In my case, the value associated with the xkb-options key was ['terminate:ctrl_alt_bksp','lv3:alt_switch'] The option 'lv3:alt_switch' was the ...

Since you can still use your mouse why not try reinstalling/installing input device drivers? sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-input-all or sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-input-all

I eventually got this working, but note that the initial pairing/connection process (at least for me) was extremely flakey. So it may take several attempts before you can successfully establish a connection. First, I had to completely remove the keyboard device from the Bluetooth configuration using bluetoothctl: remove [dev] Then I reset the keyboard's ...

I had the same problem, after installing SketchUp the shortcuts did not work (wine 1.7.x and 1.8.0). I solved it by resetting all shortcuts in the SketchUp shortcuts menu (Window - Preferences - Shortcuts - Reset all). Grtz

Numlock may be on. And the layout is set to GB sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup Might help to set it to the correct layout again.

I have found out a solution by myself: iBus wasn't working and I was closing it from the tray unknowingly. I have edited my .xinputrc to allow iBus to start. Still, I don't know why on the other accounts it worked normally; I will mention the contents of the edited .xinputrc below. # im-config(8) generated on Sun, 07 Feb 2016 00:01:26 +0200 run_im ibus ...

Since 13.10, the session manager (gnome-session by default) runs managed by yet another process manager: Upstart. With these kind of mixups, the graphical session startup process only gets more convoluted each release. If you want to peek a bit, take a look in /usr/share/upstart/sessions. In short, you have two possibilities: Take a look at which ...

I have figured out the problem! The problem was that for some reason when one has the Show location of pointer option enabled in the gnome-tweak-tool, as this is assigned to CTRL, for some reason this prevents programs from capturing this key. So disabling that option in the gnome-tweak-tool fixes the issue.

If you don't mind a solution for X only...

I found the solution: Go download and install a newer DEB package from the Texmaker website. NOTE : Simply trying to overwrite the package using dpkg -i will fail with an error.

Do you have the guest additions installed? This helps with a lot of these issues. In the VirtualBox window running your VM: Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD Image...

Right Ctrl Is used as "Host" key by virtual machine. You can change Host key in VB global settings or use left Ctrl as normal Ctrl key. You can see a hint in the lower right corner of a virtual machine window.

Aliases are not available to the GUI shortcut tools. They don't read .bashrc, for one thing and the don't run the normal bash shell anyway. Aliases only work on the command line. So, instead of using the alias, just make a shortcut that launches a shell and runs the command itself: bash -c "~/ums.rb > note.txt && gedit note.txt && rm ...

I have checked, you have installed the English (Queens own Great Britain) keyboard.

Yes, you can do the same in 15.10 but I have no way to test it. Get vendor & product id's from: lsusb Then change /lib/udev/rules.d/97-hid2hci.rules (It has been renamed as it seems)

First, thanks to mchid. I can't say I fixed the problem but the problem has gone away. To close the loop (pun) I'll explain where I ended up.

Also, the external monitor became available without any ...

First, login to your guest account and use the su command to switch users in the terminal. For example, if your username is colonelclank you should run: su colonelclank Your username should now appear at the command prompt in the terminal.

Using xdotool Not really convenient, but possible: with xdotool, you can simulate mouse- and keyboard events: Install xdotool: sudo apt-get install xdotool Now you need to add two keyboard shortcuts; one to simulate pressing the left mouse button, and one to release it: Choose: System Settings > "Keyboard" > "Shortcuts" > "Custom Shortcuts".

I have a k800, brand new and it's doing this. I was way out of town for 4 months right after I bought it so can't do a store return. Logitech keeps blowing me off on resolving the problem. This definitely should be a recall issue!! Instead they're acting like it's never happened to anyone else

I'm not sure if this is applicable to your system, but when I installed Xubuntu on my custom pc I had a similar issue with my USB peripherals.

That answer worked perfectly for me, you just need to create file (let's say keyboard.sh) in your home directory, copy/paste that code into this file, then give it execution rights (chmod +x keyboard.sh in terminal) and execute it. You can delete that file after execution.

Looking at other askubuntu questions and related forum posts I've gathered that intel wireless 3160 is a dual card (bluetooth and wlan).

If that does not work, ...

Do not use previous advice in Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS: dconf write /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/show-launcher '""' It works! But it gives some bad behaviour: i cann't type a "space" symbol, unexpected resets to login screen with disabled keyboard.

There are two types of converters, one of them is just a mechanical interface, this means that is has no circuits inside.

Nautilus Shortcuts You can use Alt-Left and Alt-Right to move through your location history. Alt-Left has the same functionality as Backspace.

Not exactly an answer, but maybe a solution. AFAIK, the keys you mention are modifier keys which are intended to modify the effect of another (non-modifier) key being pressed simultaneously. I'm not very well versed in hardware, but I believe some of the modifier processing may actually occur in the keyboard hardware or in the drivers - so they're not ...

On a laptop keyboard the very top left key is often esc. Followed by f1, f2, etc. Also the labeled shorcuts on the keys may not be the same in Ubuntu vs ChromeOS. Unless they are hardware shortcuts ubuntu likely only sees them as f-keys. It may be possible with the help of other software to remap those keys to the shortcuts you want. For example ...
