To show events from keyboards, but also other input devices, there is also evtest. It can not block or create keypresses, though. 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 1429316964.681508, ...

Don't worry about the lspci part. It's just because your /usr/share/misc/pci.ids* files are not up to date. Just run "update-pciids" as root. Before running update-pciids: $ lspci | grep GeForce $ Running update-pciids: $ sudo update-pciids Downloaded daily snapshot dated 2015-04-14 03:15:01 $ sudo lspci | grep GeForce 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ...

You very probably also have an Intel card on-board and these are Intel upgrades (which xorg-edgers provides too) I've applied them as I'm running Hybrid Intel-NVidia and had no ill effects, but as you're running on nVidia drivers only, these drivers are only being installed because they're there already! That being said: take a system backup first (you've ...

Don't worry about the version you installed yourself, you can just simply remove the folder. How to get to another version, then? I'd try apt-pinning for installing the package from another source. There will be a newer package in a PPA or even in another Ubuntu version and with apt-pinning you can make them available. It has it's limitations, though. ...

I had the same problem when I connected my second display to the VGA port. Problem solved when I changed to DVI. I found other issue using Display Port with a VGA adapter. The system goes crazy and becomes unable to detect the resolution properly. Quite a mess.
