Try tapping the device in the Bluetooth settings and clicking Connect. If you get a PIN prompt, there's a chance you've got the same problem as described in this question. Alternatively if it appears in your connected devices but nothing happens when you press keys, you might be having the same problem as in this question. In either of those cases, it ...

I figured it out. This link was very helpful: https://butterflyofdream.wordpress.com/2012/09/10/how-to-assign-capslock-on-backspace-key-in-colemak/ Changing the backspace key to a caps lock key is as simple as typing $ xmodmap -e "keycode 22 = Caps_Lock"

1. The command to type a phrase You can do that by using xdotool, which is not on your system by default. Install it first: sudo apt-get install xdotool Then the command to (literally) type a text phrase is: xdotool type 'This is a test to see if all works fine. If it works this text is typed.' The text will be typed in the frontmost window. Adding ...

The secondary function of the ESC key on this model triggers a special "paper" mode in Windows. This is likely implemented in the machine using an ACPI event sent by the embedded controller, which ends up in the kernel driver and triggers an OS specific action from there. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find that event. Once someone has been able to ...

The internal state of the software interpreting caps lock is distinct from the lights used to display caps lock. At least on my machine (Lenovo Y50), the caps lock indicator light on my laptop keyboard is only switched on and off when the caps lock button on that keyboard is pressed; pressing the button on my USB keyboard switches caps lock on and off but ...

I tested the command mentioned here on Gnome 15.04, and it did the job well. The next thing to do is then to make it available under a shortcut key. The easiest way would be to create a small script of it: #!/bin/bash dbus-send --system --print-reply \ --dest="org.freedesktop.login1" \ /org/freedesktop/login1 \ org.freedesktop.login1.Manager.Suspend ...

Toggle between screens and (optionally) set focus on the (full screen) window The script below will toggle (and "focus") between the left and the right screen if both screens are more or less center- or top aligned, and more or less of the same vertical resolution. I assume in practically all situations of a left/right screen setup it will work. The ...

Open the dash (Super key) --> type keyboard --> open settings keyboard, select the tab Shortcuts and there custom shortcuts. There you can edit shortcuts. I don't know if you can set a single character as a shortcut, but it would not be a smart thing to do.

I can set it on Ubuntu 14. not trying other versions. Edit -> Preferences -> File Preferences -> Display. Check "Navigate folders in a tree" in "List View". Now you can use left, right arrow key to open and close folders.

The terminal way The terminal way is excellent described in answer of @GunnarHjalmarsson and in the answer of @Serg. The GUI way Start the Language Support via GNOME Shell or language-selector-gnome (GNOME 3.14) or gnome-language-selector (GNOME 3.16) in a terminal. Click Install / Remove Languages… and select one or more languages to install

I reinstalled 15.04 overtop the existing installation and the problem has gone away. Sadly my display is now set at 1024x768 but I hope a little tweaking will enable my correct video settings.

I'm aware of two ways. Either you install Language Support: sudo apt-get install language-selector-gnome and do it from there. Optionally you can just run these commands in a terminal window: sudo mkdir /usr/share/locale-langpack/ru sudo apt-get install $(check-language-support)

I think it's not only to boot the system. The problem improved, but it happened again. It can be any combination of key that I have entered, or it is hardware problem or a bug in the version of Ubuntu 14.04lTS keyboards ABNT.

I tried to get a Logitech mouse/keyboard to work - same thing, works fine in windows but not in ubuntu. After 2 months of messing with it and finding no resolution on here, I have to fall back to the Logitech response (also took them 2 months to figure it out) and that is "Logitech products do not work with Linux." That was the final answer from their tech ...

Your Fn key was stuck down. On a Samsung R480, and most other laptops without a separate numberpad, Fn + those keys act as either Page Up, Page Down, Home, End, Ins, Del, or the arrow keys, if Num Lock is off.


0

It's a hardware problem, but likely a very simple one. Check your Fn key isn't stuck down, which on an Acer Aspire laptop would change the behavior of the letters UIOPJKLM, F1-F12, and the arrow keys. Other compact laptops (those with no separate numberpad) can have similar issues.

As your keyboard has a separate numberpad, this is likely a hardware/firmware problem, and is not because of Ubuntu. Many people have reported the same thing happening in Windows with similar models of laptop. See http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Other-Notebook-PC-Questions/Problem-with-num-lock-and-keyboard/td-p/256, for example. Put simply, your keyboard ...

Click on it, after that you should see a drop-down list. Click on "text entry settings". This should open a text entry window. On the left of the window, there is a box called "Input sources to use".

The --sync option was exactly what I was looking for! However, the --sync option only exists on a particular set of get or search commands. The solution turned out to be: xdotool getwindowfocus windowfocus --sync type thisismyemail@example.com What's happening here is that we first get the window that is focused, via getwindowfocus (getactivewindow is an ...

This is NOT a brand recommendation, but a valuable data point nonetheless... I spent 2 months with a Logitech K350 and M350 wireless mouse/keyboard combo; they worked OK, but the keyboard power switch had to be cycled at every boot. Worked fine in the bios, worked fine in windows, but after 14.04 booted, I had no keyboard until I switched it off and back ...

xset - user preference utility for X r is to control autorepeat. xset -r 10 will disable autorepeat for the "1" key. xset r 10 will enable autorepeat for the "1" key. xset r [keycode] in my case keycode for space bar is 65 check for yours with code: xev | grep -A2 --line-buffered '^KeyRelease' | sed -n '/keycode /s/^.*keycode \([0-9]*\).* ...

I've found a solution for you, but it doesn't involve Bounce Keys. What I do here is to deactivate the space key/keyboard for a small time each time space is pressed. So here it goes: We use xbindkeys to capture space bar press (in this case release) and xdotool to insert spaces. Install them if you don't have it on your system: sudo apt-get install ...

Does it say En, instead of Da here? If not, you need to click on it and change keyboard to English (US). Check online to see if Bengali is compatible on US English keyboards.

Try Alt on right Alt gr+q Beware that left Alt and right Alt have a different result in Ubuntu. By clicking at the language keyboard menu icon, you can click on Show Layout Chart and you will see in right lower corner what will actually work with right Alt.

I stumbled upon this answer Why did my keyboard stop working? and it seems that I've accidentally hit some key combination that turned on slowkeys, but it only had an effect after the login screen.

I think I've found the root of the problem, my suspicion was right, I tried installing ubuntu 12.04 again and sure enough, the version stated at grub boot screen is 3.14.0-32 generic and the version that modprobe is trying to find is at 3.2.0-23 generic so my suspicion was right, now this is the cause of my problem but just raises more questions so I'm going ...

I've proudly obtained the "tumbleweed" badge on this question, because nobody answered and nobody cared. In the end I solved by reinstalling the whole system. I know this is a bit overkill, but I needed to use the system and in any case I wanted to try 15.04. The keyboard is working correctly now, meaning that it was not an hardware problem. I am sorry for ...

I've tried pretty much all fixes I could google (including the other answers to this question), but the only thing that helped was to install the hardware enablement stack: sudo apt-get install linux-generic-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-lts-utopic \ libegl1-mesa-drivers-lts-utopic xserver-xorg-video-all-lts-utopic \ ...

sudo evtest should give you a list of devices you can get scancodes for. One of them should have the foot pedal's name, so input the eventnumber you can see beside it.

The best solution I could find is to make a separate daemon that run as service which monitor /dev/input/.. events and let the other user tools to connect to itself and listen for input events. Think something that replace XEvent. (bringing those input events to user space)

You can do this by setting the keyboard shortcut for: System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Launchers > Home folder I have it mapped to Ctrl+Super+N and it properly opens my home folder.

You're looking for nautilus /home/user/.

In addition to the answers already given: Ctrl+PgUp and Ctrl+PgDn should also work to switch tabs forth and back.

Most shortcuts in other systems also apply: Ctrl + TAB = next tab Ctrl + Shift + TAB = previous tab Ctrl + T = new tab Ctrl + W = close tab Ctrl + Shift + T = reopen last closed tab

In Chrome and Firefox both we have to press Ctrl+ Number E.g. If you want to go to the tab then you have to press Ctrl+3 You can also use Alt instead of Ctrl - i.e. Alt+3.
