Re: Cannot connect USB keyboard and mouse through KVM switch

This is an iogear 2-port USB cable KVM switch, model GCS72U. Don't know whether this is relevant, but the switch has separate USB ports for the K and M, but since my K and M are both plugged into a (Dell P2210) monitor, I just run the one USB upstream cable from the monitor to one of the ports in th...

rmmod: ERROR: Module hid_logitech_dj is not currently loaded
Thank you for your response and please let me know if you have other ideas.

Cannot connect USB keyboard and mouse through KVM switch

As far as I understand (not much!), the gist of the problem seems to be that the system does not "see" the external keyboard (K) or mouse (M). It was working, but when I changed the connection from a direct connection between my Debian laptop and the external K/M to a connection through a ...

Re: gnome-software unable to get list of updates

I only install from Debian repositories, so I think I'm good.

Re: gnome-software unable to get list of updates

That worked and now when I check for updates on gnome-software I do not get an error. But do I not need /etc/apt/trusted.gpg? # apt update Hit:1 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian buster InRelease Hit:2 http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease Get:3 http://ftp.us.debian.org/d...

Re: gnome-software unable to get list of updates

Code: Select all

# mv /etc/apt/trusted.gpg{,.bak}
# apt-key update
Warning: 'apt-key update' is deprecated and should not be used anymore!
Note: In your distribution this command is a no-op and can therefore be removed safely.

Re: gnome-software unable to get list of updates

I haven't done anything to that file (or really anything else except what's in this post, for that matter).

Code: Select all

# file /etc/apt/trusted.gpg

Re: gnome-software unable to get list of updates

I tried what you recommended (see immediately below) but when I opened gnome-software afterwards and checked for updates I still got the original error ("Unable to get list of updates"). # chown root:root /etc/apt/trusted.gpg # chmod 644 /etc/apt/trusted.gpg # ls -l /etc/apt/trusted.gpg -r...

I'm running Debian stable (buster), gnome-software version 3.30.6-5. When I open the app, click on the "Updates" tab, then click on the refresh arrow, an error message always pops up that says "Unable to get list of updates" (with no other information). Meanwhile, in the middle o...
