Other / Onboard keyboard shows black (no letters) at login screen
« Last post by JanetBiggar on Today at 02:32:24 AM »
So far the Onboard keyboard at login has worked well on two other older laptops, however on one laptop (a Mecer, i3, RAM 2 GB, HD approx 250 GB) it is now showing a black box with no letters at login.

It did show the proper keyboard at login initially, but not now even if I shut down and reboot.  When I do login using the real keyboard I can pull up the Onboard keyboard which shows up and works just fine.

I did find this thread, however it is rather detailed and greek to me!  Here is the link:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/onboard/+bug/1562734

I initially had added the package via a command line rather than through install/remove programs in menu: $ sudo apt-get install onboard then opened the lightdm to set the keyboard on login settings via the misc tab.

These further comments may be helpful:
1) I decided to completely uninstall Onboard and then reinstall via the install/remove programs in the menu.  I clicked for install on the same two packages which I uninstalled earlier.  It when through what it was suppose to do, but then a message came up saying that it couldn't install it (sorry, I didn't take a pic of exactly what it said).
2) I then decided to restore to an early system back restore.  Once restored I shut down and rebooted and voila the login Onboard keyboard showed up just fine.  I then shut it down again and rebooted and now the login keyboard is black again.

Does anyone have a fix for this?

Why?  We have ClamAV in the repositories if you think you need antivirus software on Linux (which you prob'ly don't).

Looks like disk maybe full, /home..
In terminal you can confirm by typing...
Code: [Select]
df -hIf /home is full, clear some space maybe dowloads or move to another disk/drive etc....

Ok peeps, I keep getting this message at the start of the computer with LL, I think I know what it means but I want to be sure.
So if I can get a shout out about it that would be great.


Thanks.


Here is what I get, then the screen goes blank and the mouse cursor is an X I close it and then the blank screen


[size=78%]Failed to write file '/home/my login name/.cache/xfce4-notifyd-theme.rc.1NKLYZ': write() failed: No space left on device[/size]

Hi The Dead and elelme,

Yep, that's why I'm at a place that offers free wi-fi, the other favorite place being the library.  And yep, I've done that where I've spent four days downloading a linux distro iso.  Since we have laptops now, it makes it a bit easier.  Still, I'd rather be home doing this, but living out in the hilly country you only get a few internet options with satellite being the other flaky and much more expensive option.

Looking forward to using Linux-Lite!
