I ran into the same problem installing OpenBSD 5.7 on a Jetway barebones box (JBC375F3AW-2930-B, but this probably applies to most or all models). The fix was to go into the BIOS setup program, and on the "Advanced" screen, set the "OS Selection" item to "Android".

This sounds like a hardware issue, since it is happening in both operating systems and you say that your numlock light is acting up as well. Are you sure you don't have volume keys on your laptop? All pictures of your laptop that I've found would suggest that there are three in the top left where you say the media board is. If this is the case that ...

The only issue was that after the product ID the '*' is still required, so in the end the rule looked like: keyboard:usb:v11AAp11AA* [remapping rules] Simple syntax error.

Let's try simplifying this a little. I'm not aware of any symbols command keys.type=MULTI, so I removed that line first. I saved your file as keys (minus that line) and ran xkbcomp -w 10 keys. It reports: Warning: No automatic type for 6 symbols Using for the <TLDE> key (keycode 49) Warning: Type "" is not ...

The scancodes for usb keyboards are not what you would expect, they are not the output of showkey -s. Instead you pretty much have to use evtest to get the scancodes you need. Example output from evtest: Event: time 1399420905.069693, type 4 (EV_MSC), code 4 (MSC_SCAN), value 70004 Event: time 1399420905.069693, type 1 (EV_KEY), code 30 (KEY_A), value 1 ...

My issue was putting the wrong scancode, the rule shouldn't be keyboard_key_1b=playcd but keyboard_key_7003a=playcd You really do require evtest for this (the 'scancodes' provided by showkey -s is not the one you're looking for)

Not sure if this is some bug related to wine in combination with some or all window managers... But I finally found one working solution for my needs: startx <(echo ssh -X myRemoteLinuxIP wine notepad) which runs wine application as single-app without window manager. And keyboard is finally routed inside the program.

It looks like you might be missing some packages. I don't use Ubuntu but I'm pretty sure the package you wanted to install was cinnamon-desktop and not cinnamon. The latter does not seem to contain all the necessary bits. Try installing the missing packages and restarting Cinnamon: sudo apt-get install cinnamon-desktop-environment The ...

It depends on your terminal. If this is something important to you, you could consider Emacs term-mode which gives you the full text-manipulation capability of the editing environment. It's possible that you consider that to be overkill, of course!

If you use Urxvt, you can extend the keyboard functionality of the terminal using urxvt-perls, a collection of scripts that enables: selecting text passing URLs to your $browser searching your scrollback and yanking and pasting to and from your clipboard Essentially, with urxvt-perls installed, you can dispense with your mouse entirely.

If you use other window managers with XFCE you can manipulate windows in many ways you don't currently have with XFWM. Compiz in particular with the grid and put plugins give you shortcuts to place windows in various positions like a tiling window manager. You'll want to install ccsm (compiz config settings manager) to manage plugin settings and set your ...

As long as I found the proper solution, I will answer my own question. There is a program named keyfuzz that can change the keyboard maps used by the kernel, based on input devices - i.e. separately for every keyboard attached to the computer. There are two problems with this program that are not described properly in the documentation: The USB ...
