How Does Malware Come in to a PC From USB? Closed

There's also proof that malicious firmware could also cause harm and that a firmware could be infected by a computer. Chris Hoffman's article on How-To Geek explains this in detail, but here's the part that answers your guestion: USB device can claim to be a flash drive, a keyboard, and network adapter even at the same time!The key to this problem is the design goal that USB devices could do many different things. For example, a USB flash drive with malicious firmware could function as a USB keyboard. When you connect it to your computer, it could send keyboard-press actions to the computer as if someone sitting at the computer were typing the keys. Thanks to keyboard shortcuts, a malicious firmware functioning as a keyboard couldfor exampleopen a Command Prompt window, download a program from a remote server, run it, and agree to a UAC prompt.The major threat was imposed by the AutoRun feature first introduced in Windows 95 that allows removable media to launch programs without user consent. Another article by Chris Hoffman has more detailed information an examples on this.Since Windows Vista this functionality has been disabled by default, replaced by AutoPlay dialogue. Windows 7 removed Autorun for every device type except CDROM, but it's possible to spoof this information, and AutoPlay can still be trickered manually.AutoRun can be turned off for every device type with a registry tweak:The feature works from a text file, autorun.inf, at the root of the inserted file system. Back then I created a simple CD-ROM that took advantage of the feature by using AutoRun to disable AutoRun for good. The registry modification above was in autorun-off.reg called from this autorun.inf:

Cannot refresh windows 8.1 after downgrade from windows 10

First, if you haven't backed up your data and any product codes or critical settings, do that please.The reason that the 10 upgrade didn't pick up the product code from the bios could be that your bios was set to auto mode for AHCI, or doesn't have AHCI support. Have you updated your bios and make sure you force AHCI on? That may clear up the first problem. Certainly I had to force AHCI on my Samsung Chronos and to upgrade the BIOS on my wife's Sony laptop. That may help you get back to a functioning Windows 10. Note also if you can run any Windows applications under 8.

1 then you can load 3rd party software to get your product key and try typing it in during the reinstall.If you end up stuck with a disfunctional 8.1, the chances are you are missing critical drivers the manufacturer would have given you hopefully as a cd/dvd or put into a recovery partition. Simply run that if have a CD and do a fresh install, and restore the backed up data and settings (but not system or drivers). A bit painful, but at least it should then allow you to automatically upgrade to Windows 10 when you have run Windows update a few times.If you don't have (or weren't given) the recover cd/dvd then run windows disk management utility (search for disk management or partition management on your computer and select "create and format hard disk partitions".

and you may find a OEM recovery partition which you can either add a drive letter (if it is not protected) or copy it using a disk copy tool to your USB drive to rebuild your recovery "disk".Hope one of the above helps!

Why is the numpad on a keyboard not designed to print typographically correct symbols?

Historical reasons only plus a side dish of "backward compatibility".The original PC keyboards were very much 'typewriter-like'. Also, in the original ASCII set there were no 'fullwidth plus', 'minus', and 'multiply' symbols. The common MS-DOS 'extended ASCII' set contained a proper 'divide' but only in certain codepages. (Only a guess, but it can be assumed the asterisk was chosen for 'multiplication' rather than because it would look too close to the lowercase character x.)Since lots of computers were used for administrative purposes only, the calculator-like keypad addition appeared later on. Initially it doubled for use with the arrow, page up/down, and home/end keys; later on, these in turn appeared as extra extra keys. The labeling on the keypad keys duplicated those of calculators at that time, but the character they typed had to be the same as the original ones used, for compatibility with existing software and for keyboards without the extra keys.The key caps reflect what the keys insert into programs to do the function they describe. Its quite similar to pressing a key labelled "Backspace" and expecting that literal text to turn up.I know of no software at all that allows to use the Unicode character for multiplication. The same goes for the Unicode characters Mathematical Minus and Divide (come to think of it, neither do other function/characters such as the Square glyph "2" entering "52" into a calculator does not make it show "25" and the Square Root character).

Its not the only peculiarity of standard keyboards. Most have All Caps letters printed on the keys, but all of the computers I know start up in lowercase mode, and it takes an extra key (Shift) or software mode (Caps Lock) to actually enter uppercase characters

Windows 7: Create keyboard shortcut that launches repair network connection?

You can use the PowerShell Get-TroubleshootingPack Cmdlet to take you through the process of creating an answer file to later use with Invoke-TroubleshootingPack Cmdlet to automate.1. PowerShell (create answer file)Options to pick during answer file creationImportant: I only picked what I think I needed to pick but do further testing and put more time and thought into each answer just in case you see something applicable in your case.Pick x Exit for all the rest of the answers and press EnterAnswer File ContentNote: *Now that you have an answer file, you can use it to point to jobs that you can automate or create shortcuts to run as a batch as I'll talk about with more detail below.2. PowerShell (run diagnostic process)Note: The $aFile variable value should point to the answer file you just created in #1 above. The $dFolder variable value should be a folder to check for the results of the diagnostic after it runs. Now open up the result files from this command you invoked with the answer file by going to the folder specified in the $dFolder variable value and you'll have some files you can further analyze. Result Folder FilesNote: This expects the answer file to be already configured and in a readable location for the Invoke-TroubleshootingPack cmdlet to utilize so this is what you create with the above step #1. Other than that, you only need to set the AnswerFile and the DiagFolder values to be valid locations you can write to.After this process runs you should see in the Windows Event Viewer of the System log and Event ID 4100 from the "Diagostics-Neworking" source with an "Information Level" message indicating "The Network Diagnostics Framework has completed the diagnosis phase of operation, but no network problem was identified."

Ubuntu Server KVM, Passthrough PCI Device

You need to enable IOMMU in your BIOS.Here's an eHow guide: http://www.ehow.com/how_7705109_enable-iommu-bios.htmlQuoted from above page:IOMMU (I/O Memory Management Unit) is a feature supported by motherboard chipsets that provides enhanced virtual-to-physical memory mapping capabilities, including the ability to map large portions of non-contiguous memory. IOMMU can be enabled in the motherboard's BIOS, in order to resolve issues with virtual machine device drivers.Reboot the computer and note the key specified to access or enter "Setup" in the initial boot message displayed when the computer first boots.

Reboot the computer and immediately press and hold down the keyboard key or keys specified in the initial boot message. Note the navigation keys specified in the BIOS setup screen that appears. Usually the keys specified are the "Up," "Down," "Left," and "Right" arrow keys to move the cursor, "Page Up" and "Page Down" to highlight a selection in a list, the "Tab" key to move horizontally through settings, and the "Enter" key to select a highlighted setting.

Navigate through each BIOS screen using the "arrow" keys and find the "IOMMU," "I/O Memory Management Unit," or "Intel VT-d"setting (usually located under the "Advanced" or "Chipset/Northbridge/Tylersburg IOH/Intel VT for Directed I/O Configuration"settings menu). Move the cursor over the setting selection box using the "arrow" keys and press the "Page Up" or "Page Down" or specified key to select "Enabled."Press the "F10" key or navigate to the "Exit" menu using the "arrow" keys and move the cursor to the "Save and Exit" item and press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Yes" selection when confirmation to save settings is presented and press the "Enter" key to save the setting

Windows 7 can't go to sleep properly or waking up from the improper sleep state after hibernate being turned off

First off, Hiberfil.sys will always be the same size as the amount of ram you have or approximately the same size as the amount of ram you have. This explains why it can be large sometimes. The more ram you have, the larger it needs to be as it stores everything that is in the ram, into this file.

Now for the problem you are having, not sure if you done anything extra or if you have extra software installed that helps with optimizations. But when you turn off hibernation, there is another sleep mode that also utilizes the same file that hibernation uses, and its called hybrid sleep. This is also known as a deep sleep mode as it, combines everything you get from hibernation and everything you get from sleep mode, so that in the event of powerloss while the computer is in this sleep mode, you don't lose your data but the computer can wake up like as if it was in normal sleep mode. If the file that it needs is missing, things can go wrong. Can't be specific as it varies.if you don't need this sleep mode, you can disable it in the power options. And see if this fixes your problem.Another solution could be, windows is not allowing your mouse or keyboard to wake the computer up. You can fix this by going into the device manager, find your keyboard. Go into the properties and check the box allow this device to wake the computer.You can also try the windows troubleshooter in the control panel. Select trouble shooting, in the next window select improve power usage under system and security. This should detect any problems with your power settings

If the doesn't work you could use Microsoft hot scripts to code a program that will run in the sys tray yourself. I think you could probably find a port for Linux too. Hot scripts is easy and you can copy and paste scripts until you are comfortable to write your own. They are very easy to write and you can learn about them here - http://ahkscript.org/

Is There a Program That Will Prevent Changing the Numlock State? Closed
In the registry, oen HKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelKeyoard.The entry InitialKeyoardIndicators can have the following values:0 NumLock is turned OFF after the logon.1 Disale NumLock.2 Numlock is turned ON after the logon.EDITIf I understand your dilemma correctly, you like one NumLock setting and your oss likes another. So why don't you create another user account for your oss? You can also use a screen-saver with your assword, to force him to logon in order to use the comuter. I elieve that's a etter solution than monkeying with the registry.Regarding the registry key, there are actually two of those. Here's how it works:After oot and efore login, Windows readsHKEY_USERS.DEFAULTControl PanelKeyoardInitialKeyoardIndicatorsand sets it u as default. After Logon, Windows Alies the setting fromHKEY_CURRENT_USERControl PanelKeyoardInitialKeyoardIndicators (0Off, 2On).This setting is stored indeendently inside each user rofile, and the state from the Windows Session is saved at logoff. This means if you turn your NumLock on, a value of 2 is written at logoff, and NumLock will e toggled on at next login.

The debouncing is performed with software. Do not add slowness to the circuit which detects if a key is pressed. Players hate delays. There's enough it already (MIDI transmission,communication between the MIDI interface and the computer application, sound generating DSP, sound system DSP, distance to the loudspeaker). As much as 20ms total in circuits ( the distance to the loudspeaker) is well achievable by bad design and it makes a MIDI keyboard painful experience for a competent player.Make your system to react as soon as possible to a keypress. Leave debouncing delay for the key scanning software and let it affect only to the time when the releasing of the key is taken into the account. Playing a sound a little too long is much less annoying than a delayed start. A simple debouncing strategy in software is to scan the keys say in every 3 millisecond if the caused 0...3 ms extra delay is not a problem. The maximum value 3 ms is equivalent with about 1 meter extra distance to the speaker which can be acceptable------What photograph-manipulation application matches my specific feature wishlist?I'm curious why you think Photoshop doesn't meet what you want, when it clearly does match everyone of your requirements:Fast.

IMPORTANT: This will reset all connected Bluetooth devices, including any wireless keyboard or mouse, so they will need to be reconnected.Before commencing, you will need to have the Bluetooth icon showing in the menu bar. If it is not there, open System Preferences > Bluetooth and enable the option Show Bluetooth in Menu Bar.Resetting the macOS Bluetooth Device List and Bluetooth ControllerFollow these steps:After doing the above, test your keyboard for a while to determine if it's now working better.If it's not, there are other things we can try/test for on the MBP side of things.

If it isn't, then replace your keyboard batteries of make sure they're fully charged and test again.Let me know how you go up to this point and if necessary we'll proceed further------Learning piano via MIDI keyboard questionsQuestion 1) I use an 88 key Roland stage piano with midi out when I need it. Stage because it saves space and fairly portable (still 25kg) and have sometimes packed it away in flight case when not being used.

So you don't have the limited options by just using scratchpad and line select keys, but you can graphically interact with the items on the screen by using the cursor.A flight management system (FMS) is a fundamental component of a modern airliner's avionics. An FMS is a specialized computer system that automates a wide variety of in-flight tasks, reducing the workload on the flight crew to the point that modern civilian aircraft no longer carry flight engineers or navigators. A primary function is in-flight management of the flight plan. Using various sensors (such as GPS and INS often backed up by radio navigation) to determine the aircraft's position, the FMS can guide the aircraft along the flight plan. From the cockpit, the FMS is normally controlled through a Control Display Unit (CDU) which incorporates a small screen and keyboard or touchscreen. The FMS sends the flight plan for display to the Electronic Flight Instrument System (EFIS), Navigation Display (ND), or Multifunction Display (MFD).Wikipedia - Flight Management System------How to test which button is stuckIn the first instance, maybe give the keyboard a damn good blow with a can of compressed air, in case there is debris under the keys. Biscuits are GREAT for screwing up keyboards.Failing that, I would give Dell technical support a call and explain your problem as it is still under warranty. It would save you some time if you ran through the diagnostics (F12 on boot up and then select the diagnostic option) before calling. It might save them getting you to do it while on the phone.(sorry if this does not apply to you-) Over here in the UK, if you tell them that you're comfortable changing the keyboard and ask nicely, they will just send the part and let you do it yourself. Not sure whether this will work in your neck of the woods but worth a go nevertheless, nothing to lose right?Trying to fix it yourself might end in a completely broken key. If you are lucky enough to remove the key without snapping the plastic, the scissor mechanism is a pain the backside to put back together again------How to change keyboard layout by USB dongle?There are several parts to this question.1) Can you make some kind of hardware that permutes keys from an USB keyboard as if it were a customized Dvorak keyboard?Yes, you can. You can use any embedded computer that has both an USB host and a USB client port. However, you will have to write the software for that yourself: It's very unlikely that ready-made software for that exists. The software will have to translate HID events from the physical keyboards to the HID events corresponding to the Dvorak layout, but that is not very difficult.2) Will you be allowed with your own private keyboard or your own piece of hardware that you can put between an existing USB keyboard and a PC in a high security place?If the people who are responsible for security are not completely stupid, they will allow no extra hardware at all - no keyboards you carry with you, no commercial "dongles", no custom self-made "dongles". And you'll get on the watch list for even asking.So if you are asking because you need a Dvorak layout in such a place, this is not a viable solution------How windows boots up in hibernate mode using keyboard?The Wikipedia article was imprecise, and I already fixed that. It's true that hibernation ends up with exactly the same device power state as when regular shutdown is applied. But while that state is called a "shut down", in modern computers some basic electronic modules still function. It's the motherboard that decides what to do, once it gets in that state - according to it's construction and features designed by manufacturer.These features are eg. powering up by WakeOnLAN, keyboard shortcut, mouse move or time-preset launch. Or even pressing the front power button, which is not a real circuit breaker like in "the old times", but just an electronic, low-power "sensor" that, when pressed, allows that inner electronic module to know you want to power the rest of modules on.To completely shut the computer (motherboard) down, you still have to completely unplug it's power sources or, in case of some desktop PC-s, use the power switch on the PSU.Mind though, that RAM is truly powered down when in hibernation state. It's content gets stored on the hard drive right before shutdown and then gets recovered when you start computer again.
How Do You Emulate a Numpad/keypad for Use with Design Software (such As Blender)?
How Do You Emulate a Numpad/keypad for Use with Design Software (such As Blender)?
If you don't care about any of the explanation (I know I can be longwinded), just follow the bolded numbers in curly brackets at the beginning of some paragraphs. Follow each of these steps in order, and you can probably have this implemented in a few minutes. Note that this guide assumes some amount of Unix competency (being able to create directories, create files, sudo elevating to root access, etc). Also note that root access is only required where indicated, so you do not need to use sudo unless told to. We will be using xkb to add a "locking" (like Caps lock) numpad emulation to Linux. I would like my keys "jkluio789" to represent the numpad representations of the numbers "123456789", as well as a few other inclusions ("m,"->"0", "-"->numpad"-*", "."->numpad"."). I will toggle this "numpad mode" by using the key combination of ShiftMod4key where Mod4 is the modifier code for my operating system key (also called "Command" or "Windows Key", and sometimes assigned to the modifier code of Super or Hyper), and key is any of the keys used in my emulated numpad (such as "j" or ""). Simple modifications to this setup should be relatively simple after reading the full solution.To do this, we will define a custom xkb "type" file, which tells xkb how to interpret the various modifier keys we will use to initialize our keypad emulation, as well as a custom xkb "symbols" file, which tells xkb how each key we press should behave normally (Group 1), how it should behave during the numpad emulation (Group 2), and how to switch back and for between the two (Level 3 action for both groups). Finally, we will make our solution permanent by integrating it into the current xkbmap using sed each time we start a new session (so that our solution does not get erased each time xkb is updated).1 The first thing we will do is define a directory for us to keep our various files in. Yours can look like pretty much anything, but mine looks like thisOnce we have our directory tree, lets define the actual files in our solution. The first thing we will do is define our "type" file. This file will tell xkb how to move between "levels" (like how Shift capitalizes a letter, moving from the first level of a lowercase letter to an uppercase level of the uppercase letter). These levels are a bit difficult to grasp, particularly for native English speakers, but international keyboards use them to great effect for alternative letters and symbols, as well as diacritical marks. We will be using it to define how we intend to indicate a change in our keys.In other words, we tell it that we expect "level 1" behavior when no modifier is pressed (usually, a standard lower case letter when in our "normal mode"), "level 2" behavior when we hold the Shift key (usually, a standard upper case letter in our "normal mode"), and "level 3" behavior uwhen we hold both ShiftMod4 (a special case for our purposes, which we use to indicate that, when used to modify a key, the key will now switch between modes).2 Open a new file, which we will call togglekeypad. Copy the following codeblock into it, and save it into your types directory under home.xkbtypes. NOTE: You may need to change all instances of Mod4 to whatever modifier your "Command"/"Windows Key" button corresponds to (you might need to experiment, see this webpage under Modifier Keys for guidance) or whatever other modifier you would like.3 We must also copy this file to the directory /usr/share/X11/xkb/types/. This will require root privileges, which unfortunately kind of defeats the purpose of xkb being a user-space application, but I can't seem to get setxkbmap to recognize the file without doing this. Suggestions welcome!The next thing we will do it tell xkb what each key should do when modified in each of the ways we described in the types file. We will say that we want to use two Groups in our symbols file.This means that each key has two different general behaviors that we will switch between in some way, those behaviors being the normal typing behavior, and the new numpad emulation behavior. For each key, we will say that 1) we want to use the TOGGLEKEYPAD type, 2) we will define the symbols (i.e. what the computer sees) associated with each of the physical keys in both Groups for all Levels, and 3) we will define any actions (any special things that xkb should do) associated with each key for both Groups across all Levels. This sounds rather confusing, but should make a bit more sense when look at an example. The first key that we see in the symbols file I pasted below is the key. This corresponds to the "J" key on most keyboards, according to the map seen here (Figure 2). For this physical key, we are saying that, in normal mode: in level 1 (no modifiers, according to our type file) it will just type "j", and in level 2 (Shift modifier) it will just type "J". In level 3, it does something special: there is no symbol associated with level 3, but there is an action, and that action is to LockGroup(group2). In other words, change us over to our second group, our "Keypad" group.If we look on the next few lines, we see that we have more symbols and actions defined for group 2 for this same key. It says that, in level 1 (no modifiers) type no symbol, but RedirectKey(keycode). In other words, register this key as if we actually just pressed the key, which corresponds to the "1" on a keypad. (Note: we could have again put NoAction() and used the symbol KP_1, which is the symbol that key corresponds to, but I thought this would give the best compatibility). For level 2, do the same thing, but add the Shift modifier to the key. Finally, for level 3, we lock ourselves back to Group 1, "Standard" mode.4 Open a new file, which we will call togglekeypad_symbols. Copy the following codeblock into it, and save it into your types directory under home.xkbsymbols.5 To test the keypad configuration as it is, open a Terminal window and typeThis will grab the current settings of our xkb map (using setxkbmap - print) while setting the types used to completetogglekeypad (everything in the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/types/complete and also including our types file at /usr/share/X11/xkb/types/togglekeypad). It will then feed this into sed, which will add our symbols togglekeypad from our file togglekeypad_symbols into the used symbols files. Finally, we used xkbcomp to compile the new keymap.Note that, on my machine, NumLock is presumed to be off (because there is no numpad on my machine), so the numpad keys will actually send their primary functions to the computer, i.e. Home, End, PG Up, PG Down, etc. To get numbers typed when using the emulated numpad, hold Shift. I have tried various methods to get this behavior flipped (swapping the modifers argument between levels in the symbols file, assigning a new key to emulate the NumLock key and toggling it), but nothing has yet worked for me. Thankfully, though, when tested in Blender, it performs exactly as expected without need for Shift being held down.6 If things have gone horribly wrong at this point, then don't worry, just logout/login (or at worst restart), debug, and try again. If everything is working, let's make it permanent. There are certainly some more elegant ways to make our solution persistent between sessions, but the easiest and most reliable method for me was to simply put the above commands at the end of my /.bashrc file.I used the solution roosed here which adds a it of error checking, and added a it more (so I could see any error oututs).7 Oen the file .ashrc. Add the following scrit to the end of it:8 Uon restarting, the numad emulation should now e made ermanent!While the exlanation is long, the method itself it relatively short. The shortfalls are that Blender requires a locking method to roerly work, whereas I would have referred a holding method instead, and also that it requires root access to get xk to recognize our custom tyes file for some reason. However, overall, this aears to e working well for me. If you have any questions or suggestions, lease feel free to leave them elow! Related Questions.

Great question that I wish I had the time to investigate myself. I am confident that it is tractale. Do you have any data?Your signal is a multidimensional ($n$D for $n$ uttons) inary times series; each it indicating whether or not the utton is deressed. You could also incororate the osition of the cursor into the feature vector as a 2D trajectory. Presumaly, you have training data for each activity. So this means you have a classification rolem.You can reduce the dimensionality y aroximating and efficiently encoding the trajectory (references on request), and taking the first-difference of the mouse click frequency (i.e., if the frequency of clicks is not changing, store zero). I would also estimate the distriution of the inter-arrival time of the clicks to see if you can classify from it.For a juming oint into the literature see Activity recognition using eye-gaze movements and traditional interactions. You should find more leads in the "uiquitouservasive comuting", and "humancomuter interaction" communities.To otain data I suggest generating it yourself using a keylogger.

I ruled out that it was a dirt under the key to (there was none, and ressing the sensor also had no effect, and I found that the keyad key was also doing nothing). Then I noticed something else that identified the rolem:Not long ago, I had installed Nuance Dragon Naturally Seaking (Premium) 13.

So as a general answer to this tye of rolem, I would suggest that if some keys sto resonding sometimes, one might try shutting down various running rograms (esecially recently-installed ones) and then testing the keys, to see if any of them is causing it, and then looking for otions in that software to hoefully see what keys it intercets and adjust them to taste (or at least know what they are)------Caribou On Screen Keyboard Shift Key Not WorkingHere is a solution that will only work on Xorg, not Wayland.We will modify the binary file, /usr/lib/gnome-shell/libgnome-shell.so.Make a backup of the original file.View the portion of the file that we will modify.The output will look like this, showing that Caribou uses Gnome Shell's new LocalAdapter to handle virtual key presses.Comment out the part of the code that tells Caribou to use Gnome Shell's LocalAdapter.

It can be detrimental to switch keyboards. Switching keyboards can slow production down a lot - I have seen it many times. I get mad when someone changes my mouse acceleration speed... Editing for 12 hours a day gets you comfortable with computer lag and keyboard sensitivity. It's important!!!I find that for me, the grooves of the older Mac keyboards that still had grooves in the keys for your fingers make my sound editing go way faster than the newer flatter keyboards. So much so that when I broke my old one, I bought a new standard issue one and took off all the keys and replaced them with the colorful pro tools keyboard shortcut keys and I've done this twice now since 2005. I find my sense memory of what key is where is dependent upon the grooves and the feel of the older keys and the new ones slow me down a lot!!!UPDATE: The keyboard I use and love is an oldschool (from around 2002-2003) Macally iKey with the Pro Tools colored keys. It works like a charm for me and can get around shortcuts pretty fast. It's fairly silent and I've recorded it many times for generic typing SFX as well!------Grub is preventing me from booting from usb to install DebianAs @jdwolf already commented...You may actually be booting from USB after all. If the system is booting in UEFI mode, there should be an UEFI bootloader at EFIbootbootx64.efi on the USB stick. On Linux installation media, this UEFI bootloader is often an UEFI version of GRUB.If unetbootin changed the layout of the boot files without also adjusting the configuration of the UEFI bootloader (which might be found at EFIbootbootx64.cfg or EFIbootgrub.cfg), then your boot attempt from the USB media might end up with an UEFI GRUB with no valid configuration.It is also possible that your UEFI implementation may be buggy. Some UEFI versions of GRUB were quite sensitive to UEFI implementation details - I think this has been improving lately, as the GRUB developers receive bug reports and other experience on various UEFI implementations.With modern distributions, unetbootin and similar tools could be unnecessary for preparing an installation USB media: many installation ISOs come now prepared with isohybrid (see here) or similar tools so that you can simply write the ISO to the USB media using dd or a similar tool and have it just work. This way both the legacy BIOS and UEFI bootloaders on the installation media should be using the configuration that the distribution maintainers have actually tested, rather than a configuration built by unetbootin using heuristics.------linux - two keyboards one computer different keys sentDo you really need two keyboards? If you always have your Num-Lock key either on or off, you can do what you want with just a single keyboard... This method may(?) work with two keyboards if you prefer. Using a single keyboard may be faster than having to move you hand(s) from one keyboard to the other. You can use xbindkeys which allows you to launch shell commands with your keyboard or mouse under the X Window System. The particular feature of xbindkeys which can be used here is that it responds to the state of the Num-Lock key. Lets assume that in your normal typing mode you have Num-Lock on... When you turn Num-Lock off, every key is seen differently by xbindkeys. So, you can assign macros to any individual key you like, eg. I use To do this, using a single keyboard, I need to press three keysFor two keyboards, it would only need that you press the Numlock / key. Aside from the Numeric-keypad keys, the other keys function normally whether Numlock is on or off. So if you don't typically use the keypad at all, then it may be enough to use xbindkeys and assign 16 shortcut keys for Numlock off, and another 16 for Numlock on. Otherwise you have all keys available as new shortcuts.. (for Ubuntu): sudo apt-get install xbindkeys xbindkeys-config------Why is my keyboard acting like the Ctrl key is pressed when I hit an F key?I have run into 2 extremely similar problems which roughly fit this description. After a year of living with them, I finally figured out how to fix them.(1) Press Ctrl-Shift a few times. This seems to fix it for me. When I hit ctrl-c, it no longer puts the cents symbol. Pressing ctrl alone and shift alone may not be sufficient to fix this.This problem, bafflingly, is always specific to the application/window. Quitting and restarting each app fixes it for that app. I have this problem both with the Advantage2 Kinesis and Advantage Kinesys. It seems to be specific to my work machine and never my home machine. Oddly, it happens even when I remote desktop in from home to work. It may be Windows 7 specific. I read about a Advantage1-Windows7 problem which is fixed by either a bios change (disable usb 3 or turn on usb debug mode), a usb-to-ps2 dongle (plug usb keyboard into ps2 port) or an Advantage2 but I think this is a different problem because my Advantage2 (LF) has the same problem.(2) Press Alt-Shift once. This is the default hotkey to switch keyboard input languages in Windows. See the control panel. Every once in a while, I accidentally hit alt-shift as I type a hotkey and trigger this. When I hit shift-3, it no longer puts "/".

How Does Using PS/2 with a Keyboard Influence Gaming? Closed
How Does Using PS/2 with a Keyboard Influence Gaming? Closed
PS2 is an original way of connecting keyoards (and mice) to comuters, efore USB was created. Aart from the differences I will mention in this answer, a PS2 and USB connected keyoard will ehave almost entirely the same while gaming.PS2 uses a different rotocol in dealing with actual user inut. When the state of a PS2 device changes (e.g. a key is ressedeleased), the rotocol interruts the current task of the CPU and the system immediately starts dealing with the new state. USB on the other hand gets olled, which means the comuter kees asking multile times a second the inut device for its current state.So in the end, no, using PS2 has no enefits for gaming, excet for the N-key-rollover that could e useful in some secial cases. While connecting your keyoard using PS2 won't harm your game exeriences either, it is roaly the easiest to just stick to the rotocol everyone uses: USB.There are other reasons not mentioned in this answer for using PS2, ut these don't make any difference on gaming.

The Lenovo keyboard matrix.You could wire several of these controllers to send the key signals '1', '2', '3', etc., to a program or even to WordPad set to a very large font. You would see the keypress sequence on the screen as '213' or similar but if someone holds down the button you might get '21111113'------How to swap the fn use of Function keys on a *generic* Keyboard in LinuxFn is not a normal keyboard key, such as the modifiers Ctrl, Shift and AltGr. For a standard modifier key, the microcontroller inside the keyboard sends a scancode for the modifier itself, which is then interpreted by the operating system and combined with other simultaneous key-presses. The Fn key is a form of meta-modifier key, in that it causes the operating system to see altered scancodes when other keys on the keyboard are pressed. This allows the keyboard to directly emulate a full-sized keyboard, so the operating system can use standard keymaps designed for a full-sized keyboard. However, because the operating system has no notion of the Fn key, the key can not normally be remapped in software, unlike all other standard keyboard keys.While it is most common for the Fn key processing to happen directly in the keyboard micro-controller, offering no knowledge to the main computer of whether the Fn key was pressed, at least one manufacturer, Lenovo, performs this mapping in BIOS running on the main CPU. This allows remapping the Fn key by modifying the BIOS interrupt handler.Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fn_key#Technical_detailsAnswer to the question: Remapping not possible via operating system but only via BIOS (in some cases)------Restoring Windows 7 without Disks - What should I Know?Turn on your PC or restart it if it's already on.Watch for a "entering setup" message in the first few seconds after turning on your computer. This message varies greatly from computer to computer and also includes the key or keys you need to press to enter BIOS.Here are some common ways you might see this BIOS access message:Quickly press the key or keys instructed by the previous message to get into BIOS.Note: You may need to press the BIOS access key several times to enter BIOS. Don't hold the key down or press it too many times or your system may error or lock up. If that happens, just restart and try again.When you enter BIOS you can navigate the BIOS menu using the keys of your keyboard, it will look something like this:http://0.tqn.com/d/pcsupport/1/0/H/2/-/-/biosmainmenu.jpgJust go to the Boot Menu and locate the option for changing the boot order. Put your DVD/Disk reader first, save and restart. It should boot from the disk and then you can just do this:http://harryjohnston.wordpress.com/2010/03/09/resetting-a-password-in-windows-7-or-windows-vista/I'll just copy-paste from there to in case the link breaks down:------How to use NXT device as a keyboard key for computerYes, this is possible.First, you'll want to connect your NXT to the computer using Bluetooth. Make sure you can connect to it with the official LEGO Software programming environment, NXT-G, and that the computer connection will show up when you go to Bluetooth > Connections.Next, you'll want to create a simple program in NXT-G and download it to your NXT. It should basically send a Bluetooth message to the computer, using Mailbox #1 and a number variable containing the value of the key pressed. If you need help with this part, I can provide detailed steps.Finally, you'll want to use a program called InstantEXE 3.0 (the free version works!) to receive the Bluetooth signal and use the command "Keys" to simulate the key or key sequence that you want to be triggered when the button is pressed. You can expand this with your sensors, e.g. when touch sensor #1 is pressed send it with a value and intercept this on the computer, using InstantEXE 3.0 to convert it into a keysequence. If you need help with this part, I can provide detailed steps and/or a sample program for you to use. You could use some basic labels like the following script::LeftKeys "L":CenterKeys "C":RightKeys "R"------Alert window, navigating to the right buttonYou can activate Cancel by pressing ESC. All of the Mac OS X dialogs, which has a properly associated Cancel action could be closed with ESC key (with some exceptions).So, you have ENTER for focused (default) action, ESCAPE for cancel and SPACE for alternative action (if any), which is enough in most of the cases. The only problem I see here is discoverability, but once you will discover that it will work in any app and dialog.So, actually, it's even more user-friendly (you'll have to press just one key to choose an option).Rationale I see behind this, is that it's better to think about the dialog, figure out how user will use it and why he or she even needs it. I can imagine a 5 buttons dialog on Windows just because it's possible to navigate between options with keyboard, but think it's almost impossible to get such dialog in OS X, even if you got it it seems like it will be too complicated to choose an option quickly, so you probably have to use mouse.Concerning an ability to use keyboard, I think, it's a plus, especially, for situations caused by other keyboard actions: you will be able to not change the input device, which could be annoying------A good use case for Postgres JSONB?This is indeed a reasonable case for storing object-like or key/value data, and representing it as JSON in jsonb fields in PostgreSQL is a reasonable way to do that.In general it's time to consider hstore, xml, jsonb, etc when you're starting to look at alternatives like EAV or wide tables where the app adds columns dynamically. jsonb is basically the new hstore with a more standard way of representing its data and with nesting capabilities, so it's preferable most of the time.Static tables for different kinds of thing, with parent tables for more general categories of thing, still make sense if the things being tracked are (a) fairly static and not user-defined, and (b) not excessively numerous. That does not sound like the case here.I still recommend keeping attributes as regular columns where:You can define a unique constraint - or rather, unique index - over an expression that queries the json field. It's just often cleaner to have them separate. Similarly expression indexes can help with oft-queried fields you want to keep part of the json object. It's really the first point that's the most important, as RI constraints cannot reference the value of a json object key------How many different modifier keys can we have on a keyboard?I'm not sure if I completely understand your question but, without n-key rollover using PS/2 you can only have 4 modifier keys per keyboard.Excerpt from this article.PS/2 vs USB Technical LimitationsKeep the following in mind if you have an n-key rollover keyboard that can be hooked up to your computer through either USB or a PS/2 port:USB protocol limitation - A max of 10 simultaneous key presses are recognized, 6 non-modifier keys ('w', 'a', 's', 'd', etc) 4 modifier keys (Shift, Caps, Ctrl, etc). Although you are limited to 6 regular keys you are still guaranteed that any combination of keys will be recognized properly if you have an n-key rollover keyboard. I would guess that most people would not need support for more keys than this. I would also guess that the 6 key limit may have had something to do with braille input requirements rather than someone choosing an arbitrary limit (although that doesn't explain why the limit exists in the first place). PS/2 - There are no limitations when using a PS/2 connection with your keyboard. You will truly get full n-key rollover support.So using 2 standard keyboards without without PS/2, I think that you could have a maximum of 8 modifier keys.

Not a suer user, ut may I add, aout the "keyoard rolem" for such a situation, that the slow resonse to key-ins could mean a CPU that is overwhelmed with tasks, ossily slowed greatly y a adly fragmented HDD.Once you use a USB keyoard to gain access, suggest you defragment (everything: files, free sace, the age file, etc.), using a (free) utility like "ccleaner" if need e. Then exlore (task manager) to see if you've got dozens of unnecessary tasks running (automatically) and trim them down.These measures may e esecially imortant if you are using media center to record large files (such as videos) on a large HDD that has ecome adly fragmented over time. Just a thought Related QuestionsDoes the cv2.waitKey argument determine the frame-rate while caturing a video?waitKey actually determines how much time your rogram "waits" for a key eing ressed y the user efore going on with the rest of the rogram.It is usually indeed used to "simulate" a given frame rate etween two successive frames to e dislayed. However, if your image rocessing ste takes 1 second to e executed, your video will e dislayed in slow motion anyway.You can also use it with the argument 0 (or no argument at all as it is the default) if you want your rogram to dislay the same frame until you ress any key. That last use case is sometimes useful when you want to carefully oserve a series of following frames without saving them on your hard drive------AltU started producing signSince you stated that you use Polish Programmer keyboard layout, it is by default that AltGrU produces the euro sign. Source: & for why it changed, you might have pressed Left Alt Shift or other combination that changed your input language accidentally and reset it to the default input for AltGrU instead of your custom shortcut. Or as others stated it might have been a system update. I guess you should just choose a shortcut that does not conflict with those already assigned by the system, just to be safe that it won't be reset. A tool like ActiveHotkey( would help view those already assigned------How does the ZX80 keyboard avoid ghosting and masking?That circuit uses some address lines to enable keyboard reading. Some other address lines (not part of the enable circuit) determine which columns (note the s) are read: a low address line can, via a keyboard switch, pull one of the inputs of IC10 low. This depends on the property of LS TTL inputs that a floating input is seen as high.The diodes in the circuit are needed to prevent that pressed keys could connect an address line to another address line, which would not be a good idea. They are not there to prevent ghosting/masking. The ZX80 had a membrane keyboard, it was hard enough to press one key, multi key press detection as not a feature of this beast.------Securely making an SSH connection from a public computerWhy don't you make your debian computer to require only public and private keys instead of requiring for a password? You can change that setting on the sshd_config file. But before you do that you just have to generate the keys and install them on your server with ssh-copy-keys. After going through this process nobody would be able to even try to guess an user and password because the only way to access it is by having the key and if you want it even more secure you need to provide a passphrase when creating the keys.I do this also when I'm lazy and I don't want to type my password every time that I want to log into my server.------Emit region-neutral keyboard signalsNo. There is no such facility.If you take a German keyboard and plug it into a US configured computer the key layout will be wrong. You have to tell the computer that you're using a German keyboard.Keyboards don't know what is printed on the keycaps. All they understand is where the buttons are physically located.The same with the Arduino. It's sending the keypresses that correspond to the keyboard layout of a US keyboard, and you have to tell the computer that you're using a US keyboard - because that is effectively what you are using.If you want to change the keyboard map the Arduino uses you will have to manually modify the Keyboard library (file Keyboard.cpp, array _asciimap128).------Asus ROG Zephyrus Keyboard Backlight not working duplicateI can confirm the Zephyrus keyword isn't working for 17.04I had the same problem, and I was able to solve it, but I'm using Gentoo with 4.12-8 vanilla sources.My solution was adding blacklisting asus-nb-wmi, for that, you need the following text inside /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf fileI hope it works! The problem seems to be related because asus-nb-wmi adds one fake (or wrong detected) keyboard device, and hid_asus also adds other device, so desktops seems to be using the first one which is wrong. blacklisting will avoid the bad one and keep the other correctly.This solution will add suspend, airplane mode, keyboard lights, screen lights, screen keys and volume. That doesn't fix the numeric keyboard.Regards.------Something denser than lead but with lead like properties?Here's a link to a listing of the elements in the periodic table sorted by density. The density of lead is 11.35 g/cm^3. If you wanted higher density, no toxicity and to really let your pinky live in style, then gold with a density of 19.32 would be a possibility. Other relatively available elements that are denser than lead and without toxicity concerns include palladium (12.02), rhodium (12.41), tungsten (19.35) and platinum (21.45). If you're willing to be a bit less dense than lead, then you can reduce price by using copper (8.96), molybdenum (10.22) or silver (10.5). Alloys of some of these elements are also available at high density, but the cost (due to fabrication costs) is likely to be as high or higher than that the element itself------Does somebody knows why the Apple-key has been renamed Command key?The symbol, called a Gorgon loop, has been in use since the first Mac keyboard. The key, called the Apple Key, or Open Apple Key, is referred to most commonly as the 'Command Key' - similar to the Windows Key on pretty much all other keyboards. It is used to issue keyboard commands, hence its name.They never changed the name, although some keyboards did have an actual Apple logo on the key. 'Cmd' is semantically easier than just a symbol, especially when trying to explain to a Windows-convert. Lastly, with the switch to Intel processors, its possible to run other OSes on Mac hardware. There is no 'Apple' key in Windows in Linux, but the key still has functionality------Windows 8.1 - Group Policy Settings set, but not executet when offlineAfter some more testing, finaly the settings are still beeing applied offline.The problem seems to be to "DOmain Guest" Group. I wanted to prevent this user to login to other machines on our campus, because in order to achieve auto logon, i had to put the plaintext password in the registry. This is why i removed the user from the "Domain Users" group and added him to the "Domain Guest" group. Then i added the user himself to the "Power Users" Group and for testing also the "Users" group on the local machine. Both didn't work, only after i added the user to "Domain Users" group the policys were applied after a reboot and without connection to the DC. Strange.------Ubuntu 18.04, Ctrl-C not work in RealVNC and Remmina but working fine in local(for future reference)In Remmina, to avoid problem of Host keys (in this case the Ctrl keys) not being registered by the remote client, please make sure to disableenable the toolbar icon "Grab all keyboard events" whenever needed. The toolbar icon should be located at either the top or sides of your remote screen connection. The should be a keyboard icon.Enabling said option in Remmina will cause all Host key events (Ctrl) to be sent to the remote client, hence you should be able to copy-paste on remote client.Disabling said option in Remmina will cause all Host key events to be captured on your local machine, and by using the HostCtrl keyypi you would be activating its local functionality.------Why don't we have continuous keys on the keyboard?The arrangement of the QWERTY keyboard has an interesting history. In days of old type setting for a printing press was easily jammed by type setters that were too fast, the keyboard layout was changed to make it more difficult to type fast. So it is intentionally designed to slow your typing. A newer design known as the Dvorak keyboard layout - Wikipedia named after the creator is not linear either, but it is optimized for fast typing. A few people use it and swear it is much better, but it never really caught on enough to become the standard. You can still purchase a Dvorak keyboard. Why don't we have continuous keys on the keyboard?Why are computer keyboard keys not linear?------Cheapest, simplest way to implement a Bluetooth keyboard/mouse?You'll find this is often the case, when you try to build something from off the shelf parts that duplicates an existing product, almost always the parts alone will cost more than the existing product. The reason being that they can mass produce their product, buying parts in bulk cuts down on costs etc.Look closely at the 'serial-over-Bluetooth boards', some of them do in fact support different profiles. What you are looking for is a module that supports the Bluetooth HID profile (Human Interface Device, aka mouse, keyboard, joystick, wii remote, etc).Check out this previous question, it lists several bluetooth modules, which you can buy in single quantities for fairly reasonable prices, some or all of them should support HID------Access bios from Windows 10 Legacy modeReboot to firmware setup is simply not possible with BIOS (legacy) boot. Even on UEFI systems, it is not guaranteed to be available. See this topic on Unix SE for more details on the OsIndications EFI variable.If you cannot seem to enter the BIOS setup, the easiest method is to disconnect the storage device that holds the operating system. This way, you wont accidentally boot and some timeouts may be more relaxed.If you have a gaming keyboard with N-key rollover or anything the like, it may not work while booting. Use a regular USB keyboard instead.If you want a more specific guide, youll need to find out the make and model of the motherboard, for example using CPU-Z------TTY doesn't wait for passwordThis is unbelievable - today I went to this bug on Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS (Xenial Xerus) with all updates and without PPAs on physical hardware.So the problem was with 4.4.0-142-generic kernel. The symptoms was exactly same as in question. Getty in text console sends "Enter" and does not allow me to enter my password. Shows Login incorrect instead.So I removed this buggy kernel and installed 138 instead (with method similar to USB-problem):and rebooted afterwards. I/we need to wait for normal stable kernel.Warning: do not upgrade kernel to 4.4.0-142-generic if you need console login. Subscribe to the bug 1813873 and after the confirmation of the fix - install newest kernel back with sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic linux-headers-generic.------Apple Magic Keyboard 2 native function keys don't workIt turns out that my problem was rare because the circumstances of it were rare too. I solved my problem successfully by upgrading from El Capitan Beta to the Stable release 10.11.4. I did this by downloading the installer from the App Store application (can be found in the Purchases tab), and running it on my PC. After selecting the drive on which the current OS X was installed, I waited around 30 minutes for the installation to complete. It was completed and I didn't lose any of my data.Once I logged back in, I clicked on the Bluetooth icon while holding alt and shift, clicked on Debug and Remove all devices. After that, I reconnected my keyboard and it worked fine

Your friend does all his writing using: vim.He is constantly rewording sentences and editing his writing. As such, he often uses the command dd to delete a line and dw to delete a word.He is also quite new to editing with this software. He doesn't know he can comine commands with a numer such as 37dd to delete 37 lines or use . to reeat a command, so sometimes you see him entering commands reeatedly, EG: ddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddYou should really send him a command cheatsheet, so he can sto ausing his keyoard and, more imortantly, his flexor tendons.

This happens because DirectInput is telling the game files this keyboard needs to be calibrated. So, the keyboard calibrates with these keys stuck in and thinks having "S" push down is idle for the computer itself.This is more a Microsoft annoyance than it is a glitch or a bug in DirectX.

Logitech MX Keys Connects to Dock but Does Not Connect to Mac
Logitech MX Keys Connects to Dock but Does Not Connect to Mac
The Logitech MX Keys is a wireless keyoard that uses either Bluetooth LE (low energy) or the Logitech Unifying wireless receiver. The USB cale is for charging only. So, excluding the USB connection from your question, this comes down to the following ossiilities:You might have interference issues with your BT (AirPort card) on your Mac. To isolate, remove the dock and try airing. If that doesnt work, try airing with the USB receiver. But to get a solid diagnosis of your BT adater, try a different device to ensure it connects as it should As for your keyoard, try airing with another comuter. If the symtoms ersist, its the keyoard and it should e returned. If they dont, then youve definitely narrowed it down to your Mac Related QuestionsBedtime remote tied to wrist to muteshut down comuterAlthough not the remote you descried, it's ossile to turn off (almost) any c after a secified amount of time. This will ro you of your choice on when to turn it off, ut if you always turn it off after aout the same amount of time it's a retty viale technique.On windows:Press the windows-key R, and tye shutdown -s -t numerofseconds. So if you want it to turn off in 30 minutes, tye shutdown -s -t 1800. Then ress enter, and get to ed.On linux:It deends on your distrio, ut this usually works:sudo reoot -h -t 1800. Again, 1800 is the numer of seconds until shutdown.On OS-X:Multile stes are involved in getting OS-X to do this.But in all seriousness, after launching a consoleterminal you should e ale to use the linux-method.------Why is 'shift space' not popularly used?It's not used because of unintended consequences.If I'm typing something and want to write THE END, remembering to let go of Shift in the middle or after each word becomes a huge burden. Even understanding why the computer didn't type the letters I wanted is confusing. In the case of Chrome the space bar isn't being used for the " " character, but as a directional key (like the arrow keys). In that case using shift space makes some conceptual sense to reverse the direction. You may be able to make a decent argument for shift space being used for _ in programming IDE's, as there is likely less need to type in all caps. Even then, it would have to be an option that could be disabled as required by the language being used------Can I use a foot pedal to send mouse clicks and/or modifier keys ergonomically?RSI refers to Repetitive Stress Injury. You see the word 'repetitive' there? So, it has to come with anything that you repeatedly do. No matter wrist, ankle, elbow, knee! But then, if you think a bit more, the strength we have in our extremities is different from each other. Said that, by nature, legs are stronger than hands. Extending this further, toes are stronger than fingers, knee ...than elbow, and hip joint ...than shoulder. The same goes true in case of foreleg vs forearm, thighs vs biceps and so ankle vs wrist. I don't say that using ankles won't cause RSI), BUT as compared to wrists, your ankles are a bit stronger so they'll take longer time to get affected. But RSI -repetitive...so doing it again and again won't spare you at all!------Mac often perceives left-click on Magic Mouse as right-clickI randomly noticed that a three-finger-tap on the built-in trackpad would not pull up the dictionary entry for the selected word (like it used to).I navigated to:This was very strange, because this feature has always been enabled, and I never disabled it. I enabled this checkbox, and the "look-up" feature now worked.But, this immediately made my computer stop perceiving all right-clicks (i.e., right-clicks on my mouse were always perceived as left-clicks).So, I navigated to:After doing this, my computer has not perceived a left-click as a right-click again.I still have no clue what caused the issue, or why doing the above solved it, especially considering that, for good measure, I had already previously deleted the com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad.plist and com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad.plist preference files------Why don't gaming keyboards typically work with KVM switches?The USB keyboard protocol is limited to 6 keys pressed simultaneously 3 modifier keys. To bypass this limitation, some keyboards report to computer as a USB hub with multiple keyboards connected to it.If your KVM switch was just directly passing through its USB port to the active computer, it would work fine, but this approach has two disadvantages:To solve these problems, switches take over keyboard communication and pretend to be a permanently connected keyboard for each computer. Keystrokes are passed through to active computer or intercepted if they're recognized by the KVM as a special command.For this feature to work, the connected device must actually be a keyboard - KVM doesn't implement complete USB protocol including hub support. So if the keyboard reports as a hub, the KVM may not know what to do with it.------How can I configure the buttons on a Corsair gaming mouse?Unfortunately, Corsair doesn't seem to want to support linux at all. However, there are a couple of work arounds. Although it's important to note that I haven't tested these solutions myself. In addition, my M95 doesn't use the config that's on it when I'm on Linux, but it works on Windows.You could use VirtualBox and a Windows virtual machine to configure the mouse. Not ideal, but it works.Note: A second mouse is recommended.While that's downloading, install VirtualBox:sudo apt-get install virtualboxAdd your user to the "vboxusers" group (very important):sudo useradd -G vboxusers usernameLog out, and back in for this to take effect (also very important).Note: You will probably want to have a second mouse on hand.Alternatively, you could just boot into Windows and make your changes there------How does YubiKey protects it's secret key?If it is plugged into an infected computer, wouldn't the secret key be compromised?The yubikey stores the key on its internal storage media -- the exact mechanism varies depending on the type of key. When yubikey is plugged into a computer, it is recognized as a USB keyboard. Pressing the sole button on the yubikey will send a string of characters containing your one-time password, just as if they were typed via a USB keyboard. The manufacturer assures that the secret key used to generate one-time passwords can never be read off of the device, regardless of the software installed on the computer it's plugged into.Also, is it possible for a computer virus to "infect" a YubiKey?Everything is possible, but would be very hard considering the limited functionality of a yubikey------Multiple Screens, Multiple OSMultiple OS's from one console...A) virtualized. You can run sessions full screen, looks seamless. You thought he wasn't doing that, though, and you mentioned a Mac, so unless he was running a Mac it's probably not it (virtualizing it is possible, but can be a royal PITA and is against Apple's licensing)B) KVM-multiple systems were running "somewhere" and the KVM is either hooked up physically (so each of those systems were, for example, under the desk) or over the network as an ethernet KVM. Keyboard hotswitches could be used to switch among systems.C) remote control software. VNC, Remote desktop, etc. running as fullscreen sessions give the illusion of multiple systems on one desktop.Those are the ways I know of that one system can "run" multiple platforms/OS's at once------Connecting two computers possible RDC duplicateTo turn on Remote Desktop, press start and go to the Control Panel. Click on System and on the left will be link labelled Remote settings. Click that and a new windows will appear with the title System Properties. On the 'Remote' tab, there's a header 'Remote Desktop' with three radio buttons. If you are set-up on a domain, you can select 'Allow connections only from computers running Remote Desktop with Network Level Authentication', else click to 'Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop'. Follow this procedure for both computers.On one computer, open up a command-prompt and type ipconfig to find your IP (should be something like 192.168.x.y).On the other, press WinR and type mstsc. Enter the IP address of the other computer and log in------android special characters keyboardYou might want to take a look at Hacker's Keyboard:A full 5-row keyboard including arrow and Esc/Ctrl keys, intended for tablets.Are you missing the key layout you're used to from your computer? This keyboard has separate number keys, punctuation in the usual places, and arrow keys. It is based on the AOSP Gingerbread soft keyboard, so it supports multitouch for the modifier keys. It supports a bunch of keyboard layouts -- though I'm not sure about the "special characters" being inserted using alt sequences.If you're mainly interested in being able to insert special characters (and don't care whether they are bound to alt-sequences or selectable by other means), I'd suggest to search the playstore for "charmap". This will yield about 10 results, the topmost of them would match your needs.------Cursor jumps frequently to top leftIf it happens in both windows & linux on the same hardware, then try a "hardware test" (provided by the hardware manufacturer, usually run from windows).And/or there's some "usability" setting, configured to a slightly different threshold between the two OS, e.g., "disable touchpad while typing" (just guessing), perhaps enabled Windows & disabled in linux. Or maybe one of these settings are configured to a different sensitivity level. (All this assumes it's not a hardware problem, but rather how your hands may be triggering the mouse to jump to the corner of the screen)Also, fwiw, 16.04 is pretty old (released 04/2016); perhaps try 17.10 (released 10/2017) and see if that improves the situation. You can try a newer Ubuntu directly via a bootable USB, rather than re-installing. (Maybe try kubuntu, too, trying to tweak keyboard/mouse/touchpad settings.).------My MBP keeps freezingIt is unclear to me but did you replace the keyboard with the defective "w" or does the replacement keyboard have the "w" issue?The reason being, holding down a key, any key, will cause strange things to happen. An electronic issue with a Mac's (or really any computer's) keyboard can cause all sorts of strange problems.Can you disconnect the keyboard and attach an external one (and will that even work?)?A Bad battery can cause issues as well. try removing the battery (if possible) and running it on power without the battery in the Mac. That works on a number of older MacBooks/Powerbooks, hopefully it will work on yours.And once the battery is out reset the SMC as per this Apple KB article apple.com/kb/HT3964.------Lost keyboard shortcut for beginning-of-line/end-of-lineThanks to the commenter Lri for pointing to this question: Commandright/left stopped working! It made me browse through the system shortcuts again, and lo and behold - CmdLeft & CmdRight were indeed in plain sight as shortcuts for "Move Left a Space" and "Move Right a Space" - I didn't even look there before because I did not use Spaces at all in Snow Leo, and so I assumed these shortcuts were inactive. Now the upgrade to Lion and Mission Control activated them, but I still had only one space so they did nothing.So it was enough to actually redefine them to something else to regain the beginning/end-of-line functionality.Sorry everyone for misleading with the wrong information (turns out I did not actually browse through all possible shortcuts...)
