I am guessing here:The disk may have to e unlocked first. It will either romt you to unlock it during the installation, or you may have to do it y accessing Disk Utility efore the install rocess (Utility menu on the 1st or 2nd screen of the install).Another way of doing the same thing is not to have an encryted disk, and install Lion. After the installation comletes, encryt the disk through System Preferences - Security. It will romt you to restart and then it will egin encryting the whole disk, even as you use it. Great feature
Uuntu 14.04 doesn't wake u after screen is locked and lankI had similar issues with Uuntu 14.04 and 16.04 more recently.After struggling for a while, I found that disaling USB auto susend, solved (worked around) the rolem.This feature is a art of uscore which is comiled in the kernel in Uuntu.From the etcdefaultgru file and change the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line to add the uscore.autosusend-1 otion:Note that quit slash were already resent otions. So kee other otions you have too.After save the file, udate gru:And reoot.Now check autosusend value:And it should dislay -1.------
How can I type special symbols on my Android device like or as a regular character?
These are actually Unicode characters you can easily reproduce on your computer:
How can I get WHITE SMILING FACE (U263A) with the keyboard?The Android platform supports unicode and all its characters, however the soft keyboard that comes with your Android ROM probably won't carry all your desired symbols.When long clicking on some symbols/characters on your soft keyboard you will see the key pop-up expanding to give you an additional choice of symbols, then drag and release your finger to print them.Installing some 3rd party keyboards (such as GO-Keyboard) will give you access to more symbols.------
VirtualBox causes OS start failure
I guess the terminal keyboard is set to default settings, meaning the US keyboard, and you use some special keys in your password. Use a picture of the US keyboard end enter your password.Link to Pics of US Keyboard Update: Just comes to my mind.
...Try to boot an older kernel in 'Advanced options for Ubuntu', if there is one available (press left key right after your computers BIOS/UEFI screen, if you don't see the GRUB boot menu). Your system may boot normally then.To configure your console keyboard, once logged in...Changing TTY keyboard layout on a server?.------
Turn off backlit keyboard when computer goes to sleep
If it has batteries, there is simply no way to turn it off as it is most likely that the lights are independent of anything else.If it came with some sort of driver, look through all the options.If it did not come with drivers and is powered through the USB or PS/2 cable, you may have some luck by disabling all options in your BIOS such as "wake on keypress" or similar.
That being said, I have dealt with a few in the past and it is usually always on and nothing you can do about it - sorry!------
Pop-up appears when keeping a key pressed for more than a second while playing Diablo 3 on OS X
This question belongs on but what you're actually seeing here is that the text entry system that Diablo uses is "well-behaved". (FireFox's text entry system probably isn't, on account of being cross-platform, and Terminal isn't for similar reasons.)This question has the opposite problem, but should be illuminating. stackexchange.
com/questions/35576Edit: After a review of the screen shots it appears it might not be as well-behaved as I thought, if it happens outside of areas dedicated for text entry.From the linked question; fix by opening Terminal.app and running the following command:------
Is there a word for (computer) keyboard keys that have a valley in them, like caps lock?
From reading the term step seems promising, so perhaps stepped keycaps or keycaps with a step?I don't know how "official" the term is but that website has an amazing amount of information on keyboards and keycaps and seems as authoritative as I can find.
And from same page ...It usually occupies a prominent place between Tab, Shift and A, and is easily engaged by mistake when reaching for A. To avoid this mistake, many keyboards have a stepped caps lock keycap that places a gap between caps lock and the adjacent letter key.------
Math without encil and aerYou mentioned that you use MS Office and that this is slow.The other answers have already said good things, ut here is maye a strange suggestion: Learn LaTeX. Install a nice lain text editor and a version of LaTeX. Yes, LaTeX code can e a it intimidating, ut with time it is not that hard to read. The nice thing aout it is that you are ale to share what you have written with someone else (the PDF file). It is fairly easy to edit. This, of course, might not e the est idea for actually doing mathematics.Just a thought.------
Keyboard Input over MS Remote Desktop
Alright, so get this: Microsoft Office has its own language settings, distinct from Windows, and these language settings influence the languages which appear in the language bar.Somehow, the language bar was picking English (Canada) as the current language, and this somehow resulted in the strange keyboard inputs. (I live in Canada, and our English keyboards are identical to those found in the States, so I don't know why the keys would be so badly remapped, but I digress.
..)Run any Office application, bring up Options under the File page, and remove unwanted languages there. This, hopefully, addresses the problem------
Should I learn Vim without mapping keys?
I personally think you should learn the mappings. It makes reading tips or tutorials on the more obscure functions easier.In the future, you will run into the problem of now translating future readings on Vim features with the key mappings of your own functions. If anything, I'd suggest you create alias or macros for certain workflows. For example, I almost never can remember all the switches the for command accepts in batchfiles. So when I go to write a batchfile, I have an alias that loads a text file of all the friggin switches and options in a split window.------
Any cool programs that take advantage of Scroll Lock?
Excel uses it (and I think Excel is cool)
If you hit scroll lock then move around the sheet using the usual page up / down or arrow keys then you see different parts of the sheet, but the active cell remains unchanged.This is great when troubleshooting or checking formulas and results, as an easy way to move around your data while still staying in one place, which is then easier to return to (eg press scroll lock again to turn it off, press right arrow , left arrow and Excel will bring the active cell back into the visible window).------
How to make xinput commands permanent
Here's my final solution, I corrected an extremely unlikely and irrelevant race condition in Nir's answer. Also I handle the fact that I can't remap the keys when the mouse is unplugged (no error messages while it's unplugged).I added to /.xinitrc:I used the mouse ID parsed from xinput as the trigger instead of lsusb, but it's has the same effect.
Note that the pipes after the xinput command just parses the ID of the mouse, which can change. The extra NEW/OLD mouse ID's were an anal avoidance of any possibility of a race condition.Thanks @Nir for the suggestion------
Google Chrome is keylogger? closed
This is simply because you are logged in to your Google account when searching Google. Similarly, if you have autocomplete on, Chrome will provide a drop-down "suggestion" on common things, such as name, email address, etc.Unless you can provide more details, at this point from what I can tell from your post, you are simply seeing expected behavior. Google Chrome is not "keylogging" in the sense that it is capturing your credit card numbers and sending them to bad people.There are ways to turn off autocomplete and search history synchronization in Chrome settings and in your Google Account settings------
How does a cpu represent bits? closed
A transistor can represent two states - on and off - means 1 and 0 - means 1bit. So why we don't use only 32 transistors to represent 32-bit data? Why are there logic gates which contain normally 2-8 transistors in each to represent 1 bit only in each gate, which commonly input 2 bits and output 1 bit?A transistor cannot represent two states. It can, however, be used as one component within a larger circuit and that circuit can represent two states.There's plenty of existing text on the 'design of logic gates' on the Internet that will cover this in great detail this for you.------
Why don't mobile keyboards have a delete button?
If I'm understanding the question correctly, we're looking at why there is no Delete key (those above the arrow keys on a traditional physical keyboard) while there is still a Backspace key, I can provide a few reasons based on my own experience and observations:I can personally say that in most mobile typing use cases (email, SMS, etc.) the backspace key is sufficient for "undoing" my action. The similarity of the Delete key likely means it isn't as important, as deleting the character in front of the cursor is a more precise/specific action that won't be needed as often.------
Space as modifier key XKB
I think you're going to have immense difficulty getting the 'tap to space; hold to shift' behavior.That said, you can use xkbcomp :0.0 to dump the current keymap from the server to a file server-0_0.xkb, and I think I see an easy way to get the space bar to function as as modifier:Try replacing space with Mod5 (or whichever modifier key makes most sense), and then add a new modifier_map line:This is untested, but it feels right.
I don't know how you'll get a plain old space though. I'd suggest mapping it to another key entirely------
Cannot change brightness on lock screen
I make my own brightness hotkeys using xbacklight.After xbacklight is installed:There is a little plus sign on the bottom right that says "add" when you hover over it.Make two custom commandsSet the keys for these to(ctrl (brightness up key))(ctrl (brightness down key))On my laptop I use (ctrl f5) and (ctrl f6) for my brightness keys.
What this is done it is possible that you can set your brightness to zero and get no video output. When that happens you will have to press the keys to increase your brightness to get your video back------
Why the human mind can say stories that never happened? closed
Human mind can put together concepts it has learned to create stories. It part of our imagination. How it works exactly is not known, but it is an important part of our intellect and learning faculty. Whether or not it is deterministic or not is an interesting question. For example, ask a person to produce a random number and he can, but how it is done is not known. Teaching stories like those from mythology and religion help us to understand life and ourselves better. Remember also that we can intuit information from the spiritual realm also via communion with God.------
Gnome shell: pressing the super key does not work
finally found it myself.In older Ubuntu versions, go to System Settings > Keyboard Layout > Layouts and then choose Options.In newer Ubuntu versions, install Tweaks (sudo apt install gnome-tweaks) and open it, then Keyboard & Mouse and then choose Additional Layout Options.There is an option for the Alt/Win key behaviour and there I had the option selected Meta is mapped to Win keys.
Deselecting that option, and choosing Alt and meta are on Alt keys fixes it for me. At least the super is working again to access the Activities. Not quite sure what the impact is of this choice.
