since xinput list shows that your keyboard has device ID 12 what you need is xinput enable 12 and now your keyboard should work. This does not help explain why Xubuntu isn't enabling it nor does it help if you unplug it and replug it. In my experience the device ID is always the same so I made a shell script and put it in my home bin directory.

The solution that worked for Timofey did not work for me for some reason. However, a solution which did work was to put the line echo 0 > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/iso_layout into /etc/rc.local. This suggestion comes from here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/1245081 via ...

Changed System Settings>Text Entry to an alternative keymap. I have a US keyboard, but I picked "English (Canada)" and it works fine again. It helps to set a hotkey to change map "Source" automatically when it keeps happening still. :∫ (Keyboard sticks randomly has another easy setting change to try if that fails. I feel your pain.)

Make sure you have the following installed: sudo apt-get install acpi-support fnfxd toshset You may need to reboot. I believe this is a BIOS setting for toshiba laptops so check the BIOS settings to make sure this is properly set (in case Windows 7 may also have a setting for this as well).

It may help to set acpi OS and vendor in the bootloader by editing grub.cfg, as mentioned here, by adding this: acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor To the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub. You then need to run sudo update-grub and reboot to make the changes. This I find works on a few machines, to get brightness to be less jumpy etc

I am using kubuntu and I've removed the libibus packet at all with all depended packets including the ibus packet itself. No any critical packages was removed, the only some unity packages which was not used anyway under kubuntu. The problem disappears.

Could it be that you have bound something to super+space keyboard combination? This is as far as I know the default "switch layout" binding and may be the reason. It's also possible that you got both layouts when installing which would be fixed by System settings -> Text entry Just delete the US layout and you should be good to go.

You seem to be having a problem with a keyboard that doesn't get reset properly during BIOS initialisation (after a BIOS upgrade?) or the keyboard is going bad. Do the following: Edit /etc/default/grub and add atkbd.reset after quiet splash Save the file Run update-grub Reboot The atkbd.reset kernel parameter will reset your hardware keyboard controller ...

Try running the make install command as sudo make install.

I don't think this is a bug. From the htop man page: F7, ], - Increase selected process priority (subtract from 'nice' value). This can be done by the superuser only.

You can change this behavior by editing the terminal profile. Right-click in the terminal window and choose Profiles >> Profile Preferences Or from the menu: Edit >> Profile Preferences Navigate to the the compatibility tab and find 'Backspace key generates' Select 'ASCII DEL' If this did not help, refer to this and this.

Actually I figured it out ! When I press AltGr + Space, a non-breaking space is inserted, which looks exactly like a space... but isn't one. On a french keyboard, the pipe character is inserted using AltGr + 6. What happens is sometimes the AltGr is still down when I press the Space, which is why this "bad" space character is inserted. This problem has a ...

The only solution I see is to kill processes one by one and try to run xbindkeys -n each time. Then you will be able to deduce which process occupies your key combinations. To identify which PIDs you should kill look at ps aufx|grep $(whoami). Start with obvious ones, then continue with leaves except of course non-X applications (bash, mc, etc.) and your ...

I have the same laptop and had to examine the XKB files closely to find out what layout would work with this keyboard.

I found the answer to this question from the GNU/Linux Ethiopia Google Mailing list. One of our members, Teferra, gave out the answer a while back.

Then open dash (Super), and ...

If you open "System Settings", and choose "Text Entry", you will have an option to add more then one keyboard language. You also have the option to assign a shortcut to change the language on the fly, and show a language switch in the notification area. AFAIK then you cannot add a language, and add different layouts to that language in Ubuntu. Instead you ...

Inside the ssh session, start a cat command and see whether you can type b there. I'm almost sure it'll work, which means that it's your shell that decides not to act on b. Assuming the default bash, you should check readline's configuration files: ~/.inputrc, /etc/inputrc, or the one referred by $INPUTRC. Chances are you'll find an accidental lone b on its ...

Your gnome-settings-daemon isn't starting on boot, for some reason. The workaround to that is to add gnome-settings-daemon to Startup Applications or add it as a .desktop entry, into /home/yourusername/.config/autostart/ directory. The .desktop entry could be named gnome-settings-daemon.desktop and look something like this: [Desktop Entry] Type=Application ...

If you open up System Settings > Language Support and check the settings there. Then click the "Apply System-Wide" button (even if you did not change anything). I did this in both the "Language" and "Regional Formats" tabs and it fixed this issue for me (at least it has been fine for the past 24hrs since I did this).

The answer is no. Mind though that a topic related to this already exists on AskUbuntu: Create my own keyboard input layout and it has not got an answer on how to import a .klc. It only states alternatives. And our own help on creating a new keyboard lay-out also does not mention any import tool. The best way to create a new lay-out is by copying an ...

The original solution posted by Oli did not work for me, but it works after I changed the key numbers "0c022d" and "0c022e" to "c022d" and "c022e".

By default Alt+Home is the shortcut. But you may change it to Super+E or anything like this if you want. Go to System Settings. Keyboard settings Open "Shortcuts" tab.

You can actually use that same keyboard shortcut by making a custom keyboard shortcut. Open System Settings and go to Shortcuts and Gestures or Keyboard Shortcuts. It should be near the top-right.

Is this a laptop? I've seen this kind of thing happen in laptops, where pressing keys on the keyboard has the side effect of tapping the trackpad or buttons. It could be a problem with the computer, or it might just be the user's fingers ever so slightly contacting the trackpad, just enough to register a click. Double-clicking the left button usually ...
