Installation / SparkyLinux 6.7 (Po-Tolo) LXQt...
Last post by garvint - May 16, 2024, 11:14:18 PM
Today I purchased a new Dell 5424 Toughbook Rugged Laptop Core i7-8650u 32GB Ram 1TB SSD.

I tried with a USB boot installing my particular favorite "SparkyLinux 6.7 (Po-Tolo) LXQt"

The Dell BIOS can load the USB, changing latency , CSM enabled, SecureBoot disabled.

Sparky finds the hard drive partition and connects to wifi perfectly to install (with swap and hiberernate)

After that there is no way i can find to boot that hard drive with booting to Grub in the Master Boot.

Annoyingly Ubuntu-Mate installs faultlessly, which i think is something to do with a digital signature.

By the way, I did check out the 'solution' / workaround of deleting the 'FreeSans' and 'FreeSerif' font families, and that seems to have resolved the problem, at least based on my initial limited testing. I wasn't sure that I wanted to totally delete them from my system, so I thought about trying to just rename them or move them so that the system wouldn't try to use them. While looking into this, I found the 'font-manager' package (available in repo), which provides a handy GUI for viewing / managing fonts ('Font Manager' in the apps menu of Sparky 7.3 Xfce), including the ability to disable fonts. When using this, the changes happen immediately, and the only additional step you need to do is restart any affected programs if they are already open at the time.

(Still not marking this as solved though, for reasons stated earlier.)

Would love to but don't see where I can edit the thread title...
Maybe this is a moderator priviledge?

No, anyone can do it for a topic they've created, although presumably you would need to be signed in. See this sticky post. Basically, you just edit the first post in the thread; to do that, go to the bottom right of the post and it looks like you can use either 'Quick Edit' or 'More...'-'Modify' to get to a page where you can make the change and save it, etc.

Enjoy using your keyboard(s) without the previous distraction / annoyance. :-)

Thx once more duststuff... Problem Solved!

Indeed lsusb gave me a wrong id...
I installed xinput which gives me several id's for the external USB keyboard...

dda@sparkbook:~$ dda@sparkbook:~$ xinput -list | grep -i "USB keyboard"
⎜   ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard Consumer Control id=14 [slave  pointer  (2)]
    ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard System Control    id=13 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard Consumer Control id=15 [slave  keyboard (3)]
    ↳ SIGMACHIP USB Keyboard                  id=17 [slave  keyboard (3)]
dda@sparkbook:~$

And with
dda@sparkbook:~$ setxkbmap -device 17 fr
dda@sparkbook:~$
My additional keyboard now has the correct layout !
(While the laptop mac layout remained unchanged)

Last post by Sparkling - May 14, 2024, 01:32:14 PM

Even when i use the correct Login , i m still in the logIn Screen.

User=Root

Even when i use "Last know working version", it will be the same: stuck in the logIn Screen

I prefer a 2repair" funktion (Pls. step by step, i am not used in terminal; and when it is poss in German; cause english is not my mother Langua)

Cause there are to many datas, which i cant transfer by other live-system to an external usb Stick

I duno wanna use sparky 8; cause 7 is fine for me/and the old hardware

Moin, moin
Mit dem letzten Update (letzte Woche) sperrt mich mein Sparky aus.

D.h.; im Live-Betrieb ging plötzlich nichts mehr (Firefox-/Gmail/Facebook etc.) nachdem das Auto-Update eingespielt wurde

Okay, Neustart - Autoanmeldung schlug fehl; ebenso wie der manuelle LogIn
------------
Im Regelfall installiere ich 7 neu (ja, ist mir bekannt, das es 8 gibt);
da dies für die Hardware ideal ist.

Nur auf dem Arbeitsnotebook sind dann doch Daten betroffen, die ich "so" nicht abgreifen kann (ja, live-System starten; Daten auf nen USB Stick ziehen; frisch aufsetzen)
Nur da sind dann nicht nur gespeicherte Webseiten usw.; sondern halt Dtaen, die du so nicht abziehen kannst


Mir ist nicht bekannt, ob Sparky ne repair funktion hat (letzte bekannte Option endet ebenfalls nur im Anmeldefenster - Daten werden akzeptiert, man landet wieder im Anmeldefenster)

Mir ist nicht bekannt, ob ich da zu nem terminalfenster komme (und wenn ja, da bräuchte ich so ne Punkt zu Punkt Anleitung, da ich mich mit Terminalbefehlen noch nie auseinander gesetzt habe)

P-A-N-N-I-K

You're welcome, dirkskep. :-) I haven't used setxkbmap before, but I think the next thing I would try is to use '0002' for the device ID, since it may be looking for the actual hardware ID rather than the bus device number that the system assigns to it. You may already know this, but with a hardware ID string like '1c4f:0002' (i.e. your target keyboard), the first set of four characters before the colon is the numeric ID for the manufacturer and the second set after the colon is the numeric ID for the device. I've found these to often be helpful when searching online for solutions while troubleshooting devices.

Update: The following link looks like it's the same or a similar issue to your use case, in case you haven't seen it yet: https://jpriest.me/post/using-setxkbmap/ . From there it seems like my above comment about the ID is probably wrong, but I haven't tried to test / confirm. If you haven't seen this page yet, it might be what helps you solve your issue, especially in regards to the setxkbmap syntax as well as making it persistent. Another similar (but older) link is https://superuser.com/questions/757170/setxkbmap-how-to-apply-options-to-a-specific-device-only and that page also includes a link to an even older page that you may also find helpful.
