From howtogeek.com which has a good answer for any OS. For Linux (including Ubuntu): setxkbmap -option <OPTION> Where <OPTION> can be for example of: caps:none – Disables Caps Lock. caps:super – Caps Lock becomes an additional Super (aka Win key). caps:ctrl_modifier – Caps Lock becomes an additional Ctrl. caps:numlock – Caps Lock becomes an ...

I'm not sure, but I think the reason why Thai isn't supported yet is that it's not sufficiently translated for the phone. http://projects.davidplanella.org/stats/vivid/th

This is incredibly hackish, but after some searching I haven't been able to find a better solution. Ubuntu includes the on-screen keyboard onboard but opening it without a keyboard is apparently almost impossible. Open a Terminal We need a terminal to execute the application. If it happens to be in your Dash or Launcher, then awesome! Otherwise follow the ...

I had the same problem, the only solution I found was to play the game in windowed mode. To do so, open the Gothic.INI file in the System directory, and change (it should be line 157) zStartupWindowed=0 to zStartupWindowed=1 After this, I restart the game a couple of times and usually the second time the keyboard finally works. By the way, I only had ...

I solved this by adding the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+T for the command gnome-terminal, using XFCE and TigerVNC. Go to the XFCE settings or run xfce4-settings-manager, then Keyboard, Application Shortcuts. Press Add and use gnome-terminal as the command you want to trigger and finally the shortcut.

By removing power and the battery, everything is back to normal ! It seems that it is a known problem for HP laptops which has nothing to do with Ubuntu. I post the answer here because some people could be interested.

It seems, that problem was with the /var/lib/xkb folder write permissions. I changed it with sudo chmod a=rwx /var/lib/xkb (which was not easy without english/us keyboard) And after reboot I was able to use US layout again.

Super, is a modifier (like Shift, Ctrl, Alt) and not a key in its own right and you cannot, without some lower level file hacking, stab Super alone and get it to open the launcher. But you can map Super to a virtual key like here: in .kde/Autostart folder create a file write bellow command in it: #!/bin/bash xmodmap -e 'keycode 133=F13' and make it ...

If you can be satisfied with it just being disabled, here's what you can do. Run sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool. Open Tweak Tool by searching for it in the Dash. Select the Typing menu and change Caps lock key behavior to Disabled. Source: https://mkaz.com/2014/02/08/disable-caps-lock-in-ubuntu/

To show events from keyboards, but also other input devices, there is also evtest. It can not create keypresses in itself, but see below. It shows events on a lower level than xev would, for example. Also, it shows which events can be created by the device. Example output of evtest /dev/input/event4 from pressing aB: [ ... ] Event: time ...

To remap the Capslock to something like Control, Esc, I'd recommend using the gnome-tweak-tool. Open the Tweak Tool application or press Alt-F2 and run gnome-tweak-tool. Select the "Typing" tab, and change the dropdown for Caps Lock key Behaviour. Here's how it looks on my system: Now for making a key combination to type "outlongdomain.com": I have ...

What I ended up doing: For whatever reason Linux/Ubuntu did want to to recognize the keyboard as an audio/mic source. This isn't exactly a problem, it was more of a last resort. I only tried to get it to work because the jacks on my laptop are broken, and will not accept input or output (purely hardware, nothing to do with Ubuntu). I used to use an external ...

Unfortunately, m64py was not a working solution for me and "trial and error" is too cumbersome. Here is a solution anybody currently running mupen64plus, with or without a gui, should be able to use.

Why so complicated? Just use an ALIAS for this. And for everything else that get's on your nerves, too. It's easy to do, auto-loaded with the bash and you can even choose your own name for it.

Assuming that you already have the language pack installed, right click the flag or two letter code (which indicates the country). Choose "keyboard layout handler" settings.

I have made the same observation. IBus, which is enabled by default in Ubuntu, has some built-in compose table rules, but at the same time it seems to disable the functionality provided by libx11. From some sources it's said that ~/.XCompose is recognized together with uim. So a possible solution for you (untested) might be to install and enable the uim IM ...

Very much a workaround but I have instead used compizconfig to map these keys to CLI commands for banshee rather than trying to use the media keys. Works 100% in banshee therefore but no use if you're using other media players.

You said that you changed it with xmodmap -e "keycode 54 shift = numbersign asciitilde". To change this back, you can run xmodmap -e "keycode 54 shift = c C" Since you can't type "c" and "C", you can either copy-paste the command from here, or press Ctrl+Shift+U, then either "63" for lowercase "c", or "43" for uppercase "C", and finally Enter.

IBus is the modern Unix/Linux keyboard input method. Funnily, I experienced a problem because of the exact opposite of your situation: IBus wasn't turned on by default in a fresh Xubuntu installation. IBus inputs AND switching methods can be configured in the IBus config Window which can be found in "Settings" -> "Keyboard Input Methods" (with an "i" icon).

This is a pure guess, but you may want to give it a try: Install the ibus-m17n package, log out and log in again. That way a few more Russian input sources become available. Possibly some of those fits your laptop better.

What I found so far, is that based on the answer from @swift and some evtest the way it is saved in dconf is not recognized by the system when you do it using the shortcuts from the settings, where it is saved like "Launch5, Launch6, Launch7, etc" So you have to go to the gconf-editor and use the "code" of the key so you will have something like ...

In my experience, I had the boot set to "fast" which it would boot up faster, but in doing that, it didn't allow my keyboard to work in dual boot when I would turn on my laptop from shutdown. It would only work right going into ubuntu (obviously when keyboard doesn't work) and/or rebooting which brings back to dual-boot main screen setup. I loaded the ...

The usbhid still loaded as driver for the keyboard. It seems quirks didn't work as modprobe option. Try kernel option from grub, add: usbhid.quirks=0x0c45:0x7603:0x4 to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in /etc/default/grub Update grub sudo update-grub Reference: Prevent usbhid from claiming USB device

Googled up a respective Launchpad bug: "shuffled keys in keyboard buffer". People replace iBus with SCIM: sudo apt-get remove ibus && sudo apt-get install scim. I am personally cautious, as ubuntu-desktop depends on ibus.

It is possible to accomplish this by adding either a new xkb layout or layout variant. Here's what I did to add a new full width character keyboard layout variant (for the US keyboard layout): Make a backup of /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/us, /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.xml and /usr/share/X11/xkb/rules/evdev.lst Add the layout variant to the end of ...

I've tried this out and its working so far but I'll update if it freezes up again. I've seen a suggestion on youtrack that suggests to turn off iBus which seems to interfere particularly because of it's use of the ctrl + space shortcut to change language settings. You can do that by going to: language support > keyboard input method system > none **** ...

I discovered that the keyboard errors were evident even within the BIOS settings pages. I couldn't very well test the key repeat there, as there is no place to type things, only select settings, but in scrolling through the menus, I noticed the same keyboard freeze issue. Apparently there is a hardware issue at play. I don't think there is anything Ubuntu ...

It could very well be caused by a corrupted dconf database. You can find out by removing or (temporarily?) renaming the directory ~/.config/dconf/, and log out and back in to force the creation of a new database. If it turns out to be the cause, you can remove the outdated database. Edit You mentioned in a comment that it has occurred on several ...

The key combination didn’t work because some other program used it. To fix this I used gconf-editor. Open gconf-editor. Choose desktop -> ibus -> general -> hotkey. Open trigger parameter. Remove CTRL+SHIFT+U key combination from the list and press OK.
