I just upgraded from 13.10 to 14.04 (GNOME interface) and none of the shortcut key combinations or Fn+F(#) controls seem to be working any more (not even the default ones, like Ctrl+Alt+T for terminal). Additionally, I have an HP wireless keyboard with extra media control and volume toggle buttons. These no longer function either.
I have a vintage IBM 122 key model M keyboard that I am adapting for use on a modern computer. I am using a Teensy 2.0 to do the encoding and to handle the USB side of things. I borrowed the firmware from the Humble Hacker keyboard project (https://github.com/humblehacker/keyboard), and I added the extra keys in the build config. So far, so good.
I found how to have different layouts on 2 different connected keyboards here, but I want to re-map the keys on a second keyboard for web development. Preferably, I'd have keys that would type out code snippets. However, if I can even re-map the keys on the second keyboard, I can do the code snippet hot-keys inside of my IDE.
Another idea/option would be to see the keyboard as a game controller.
I am running a Logitech ex-100 combo wireless mouse/keyboard and I'd like to map the multi-media keys to work.
Both devices work now - although the mouse seems a little slow and laggy.
Does anyone have any suggestion how I can tell the system what keyboard I am using ? It recognizes them (in dmesg) but thinks I have a 105-key keyboard.
My laptop's media keys (volume up/down/mute) are detected via `xev` and `showkey`. I can go into System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts and set the volume controls with the media keys. However when I try to use the keys they do not function properly.
I tried setting the keys and rebooting the system but that hasn't worked. Any ideas?
