Games think i'm repeatedly pressing key
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 18, 2010
i've noticed that, while playing flash games, the games think that i'm repeatedly pressing a button when i'm actually holding it.
For example, say holding right arrow key is to walk, and double tapping it is to sprint. I hold down the right arrow key and then the guys starts sprinting.
is there a way to fix this?
thanks in advance
Games think I am holding down a key when I am not?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 25, 2010
Like the title says, there are some games I've installed from the repos and when I go to play them they behave as if I am constantly holding down one or more keys. For example, kq thinks I am holding down whichever key advances the menu (probably down arrow) and SDL-Ball thinks I am constantly moving the paddle to the left (left arrow?). Only seems to affect games that run in full-screen mode (i.e. no Gnome desktop decorations visible) though that could just be a matter of too small a sample. So far all the non-full screen games I've tried work as expected, if they work at all. Thoughts/suggestions?

I try to call ssh terminal from java program. With help of Ganymed SSH-2 for Java I can easy send and execute bash commandos and getting back the result:
Session sess = conn.openSession();
sess.execCommand("uname -a && date && uptime && who");
Is there any bash command which will "improvise" pressing Tab key in the bash ?
thank you for any help
System freezed – strange syslogs and changes after second freeze (I think im been h

Hello, im relatively new to linux.
I installed ubuntu Lts 14.04 today and just a nvidia driver, skype and wireshark, just to look at it and closed it around 20:18, at around 21 i installed lxdream and then I stopped all activities, only skype and firefox were running when it frezzed the first time at 22:42.
Strangely the second time it freezed when I finished my text and wanted to submit it to the forum, lost everything.
And the third time when I was about to write it again.
Then I stopped the wlan from my router and it worked, my system stopped freezing.
For me as a new linux user following system log entrie seems also very suspicious

Pressing 'D' key minimizes to desktop over xrdp in ubuntu 12.1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 4, 2013
I've read numerous threads about this same issue with earlier versions of Ubuntu but unfortunately the solution presented in every thread I've read hasn't worked. Most of these threads point to the "Hide all normal windows and set focus to the desktop" keyboard shortcut as the culprit. When I set my corresponding "Hide all normal windows" keyboard shortcut to 'disabled' nothing changes. Per another thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1595871) I also tried to find some shortcuts via gconf-editor but the /apps/metacity directory does not contain a 'global_keybindings' entry, nor does my '/var/lib/gconf/debian.defaults/%gconf-tree.xml' file contain a 'show_desktop' entry. If anyone know the cause of this issue or has any suggestions on where to find other keyboard shortcuts setting locations related Ubuntu 12.1 or xrdp I'd greatly appreciate it.
Are games more important than you think?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 7, 2005
I have been using Ubuntu at home for about a month while the wife and children stuck to Windows XP. However, over the last week or so they have also gradually drifted to Ubuntu without any encouragemetn by me. The reason for this is the games that come as standard. Firstly my wife got saw me playing 'Same Gnome' and got hooked on that. Then daughter (7) discovered connect four (one of her favourite games) which led to others. Eventually the 'family' PC was logged on to Ubuntu more often than to XP. Firstly for games but then for surfing the web and then for downloading pics of the family digital camera and then for Open Office and so on.
Until now I had considered games an unimportant part of an OS but in fact maybe they are a very useful hook to grab new users.
Havin a lan party, but need more variety of games. Im all ears!
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 7, 2004
On friday (July 9th) Im having my frist OFFICIAL lan party, but I dont have a variety of games for the ppl to select from, realy all of the games are FPS's, except Warcraft 3, and NetPanzer. I know they'll get bored QUIKE! So I would like some game suggestions, and fast, so I can try games out, and also burn them to a disk, so my guests can play them too. Im kinda full of FPS's, so I would like some RTS's, some fun Arcade stuff, and so on (u get the point) and nothing cheezy, I want to impress them. Second, THER GOING TO USE WINDOWS! WINDOWS! So i need GAMES that are free, and support WINDOWS as well as linux. THANX!
So far, I've got these games.

Gnome shell: pressing windows key and typing application name crashes the shell?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 19, 2012
After today's updates, I'm on Gnome Shell package 18.104.22.168-0ubuntu1, and using the nvidia restricted drivers 295.20, kernel with 3.2.0-17-generic (64bit).
I can use the mouse to hit the upper right hot spot, then click icons to start applications.
I can bring up Activities by pressing the Windows key then use the mouse to find applications &C
If I try to tap the Windows key and type the name of the program, then press enter, the Activities overlay and top bar disappear. Sometimes Gnome Shell restarts, other times I'm left with just a bare desktop. Can't invoke terminal, so I actually had to reboot by pressing power switch to bring up the Shutdown dialog. First time I've had to do that this cycle.
Anyone else seeing this? Unity is working fine, rebooted a couple of times, can reproduce behaviour in Gnome Shell easily.
won't boot properly, have to press Esc. key repeatedly

Alas how problems seem to spring up again in Ubuntu 11.04. I had previously threaded about how I decided I wanted to mount both of my hard drives at boot by editing the fstab file, found that that was a mistake, so I was able to reset the file using the Live CD and that seemed to fix things, or so I thought. Somehow, even though the fstab file is exactly as it was before the edit (sudo cp /etc/fstab.bak fstab), I am now getting the GRUB boot loader screen with the choices of Linux Generic, Linux Recovery Mode, MEMTEST X86, and another version of X86. After trial and error I have found that by selecting the generic option and then tapping the Esc. key about 20 times will eventually get me to the login screen. If i don't tap the key and let it try on its own, i notice that the monitor on state, green, goes to off state, amber. In that case I hit Esc. and then the monitor turns on and there is some text in the upper left corner of the screen that, unfortunately, I cannot read too wel
