For anyone using KDE, check under System Settings > Input Devices > Keyboard > Advanced. You'll need to enable "Configure keyboard options", open up "Alt/Win key behavior", then check "Ctrl is mapped to Win keys (and the usual Ctrl keys)". There is an identical setting for Alt mapping to the Win keys if you'd prefer the Control key be Alt.

I'm not able to reproduce the problem you have mentioned in comments, i.e. that enabling a Japanese keyboard layout wouldn't make a difference. I added Japanese, and the resulting keyboard layout looks like this: Then I opened gedit, switched to "Ja" via the input source indicator, and the expected characters according to the image above appeared when I ...

Here is a solution that worked for me. First, some data which may be relevant to your case. I have two machines with AsRock's Z97 boards. One is Z97 Fatality. I have checked and determined I don't suffer from this usb error causing boot-stall on that. If you have this board and are suffering from this issue, let me know and I will post my BIOS usb ...

Your keyboard layout was somehow changed, I think to the UK layout. There should be an icon in the status/menu bar that looks like a keyboard, or is a rectangle with a country code inside. Click that icon and you'll be able to select the US layout.

Ok, so after some time of testing and with the help of @Dea1993 and the guys on the Launchpad bug thread. This is how I fix it.

Edit: It says in the manual (p47) in the footer that "some apps such as GIMP, LibreOffice and Xchat-Gnome are deigned to be used in convergent mode only". In other words they will require an external keyboard and/or mouse. https://it-bqcom15-media.s3.amazonaws.com/prod/resources/manual/Aquaris_M10_Ubuntu_Edition_Complete_User_Manual-1460548936.pdf I ...

It appears there was something wrong with the installation. I reinstalled 14.04, and the keyboard lights worked, then reinstalled 16.04 and the still functioned. All's well that ends well I suppose.

If you have a full-size keyboard: Ctrl-Alt-Numpad 8 - Place window in top half of screen. Ctrl-Alt-Numpad 2 - Place window in the bottom half of the screen. Reference: What are Unity's keyboard and mouse shortcuts? If you're on a laptop, you may need to change the key bindings as you obviously won't have a number pad.

To remove the message once: click the X button. To remove the message once and for all: click the crossed-out balloon next to the X. To reinstate these messages, go to Settings -> User Interface -> File - Reset all warnings (this is my translation, could be slightly different).

What you need to do Install xprintidle, to keep track of the current idle time (defined by lack of keyboard- and mouse events). Create a small background script (further below); copy the script into an empty file and save it as dim_keyboard.sh.

I got the same problem yesterday, but it seems it was a bug introduced by package updates, today a bunch of gnome-shell updates came in and the problems were solved. Do you use the Gnome staging PPA? Actually I'm using it to try out Gnome 3.20 apps, but it's a staging ppa and therefore not marked as stable. Try sudo apt update && sudo apt ...

Solved the problem by using the scripts that fix rotation and backlight [1]. Apperantly, the laptop was always in tablet mode, hence the keyboard was always disabled. Include the following commands: systemctl start yoga-rotate@username.service and systemctl start yoga-backlight@username.service to /etc/rc.local so they are always executed at startup. This ...

I've been having the same problem with my machine for some time now. The problem exists on different distributions (I tried Ubuntu 15.10 and Arch kernel 4.4.7-1-lts).

It seems to have been a connection issue - I took the machine apart, re-seated the keyboard and trackpad connectors, and haven't had any problems since. Hopefully will stay that way.

It has nothing to do with Text Entry. I'd guess that you see the language of the time zone location which you chose at installation. The installer 'guessed' that you prefer the regional formats of that location. You can change the regional formats setting if you like.

I had the same problem after upgrading to 16.04. I had previously disabled IBus when I was running <=15.10 due to an issue with the Jetbrains Pycharm IDE.

A simple way to create a double click-able icon, running a straightforward command, like simulating a key press, is using a .desktop file.

You need a script written in bash or sh. First, install xdotool. Then, the file should have: #!/bin/sh xdotool key Super_L Save it as superkey.sh or whatever name, with the .sh extension. Super_L refers to the Left Super key. You can also press other keys like Tab, Caps_Lock or so. Now set the file to execute - either through the file properties or ...

This is a known (and still open) bug with Robomongo, likely related to similar Qt bugs. You can track the issue here: https://github.com/paralect/robomongo/issues/469 For now, as you have noted, a restart is necessary for it to pick up the changes.
