Thanks for the information. To answer your question, Caps Lock and the
Shift key work like they should. It's just that the Caps Lock light will
not come on. Unfortunately, from what you said, there is no fix for this
in console mode.

Does the shift switch occur, or is Caps Lock completely broken?

In any case, this is a very old bug, it's kernel related and has to do
with UTF-8 encoding and certain character sets.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/console-setup/+bug/425704
https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=514464

The upstream debian bug has more detail.

The tl;dr version is that it's apparently not so trivial to fix. If
you connect to your server via SSH from a desktop, caps lock light
will work. If you hit CTRL-ALT-F2 on a Debian desktop system, you'll
find this ALSO occurs on the TTY (Text Console). It's not an Ubuntu
bug, it's a Kernel bug from way back that likely will never be fixed.
The GUI environment uses a different mechanism to address/map the keys
and functions on a keyboard, so the light works there. But in a pure
console, it just ain't gonna happen.

apt is one tool, apt-get is another too, as is aptitude and synaptic.

Aptitude was dropped from the main install, but all you have to do is
"apt install aptitude" and you'll have aptitude once more.

As you can see below, aptitude still resides in Main for Ubuntu:

bladernr@galactica:~/development/git/maas-cert-server$ apt-cache policy aptitude
aptitude:
Installed: (none)
Candidate: 0.7.4-2ubuntu2
Version table:
0.7.4-2ubuntu2 500
500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages

[LINUX_Newbies] Caps Lock

 

The Caps Lock light will not come on when I press the Caps Lock button.
At first I thought it was a defective keyboard, but I have tried three
keyboards. The light will not come on on any of them, but they do when I
plug them into my laptop. After the test on my laptop, instead of
letting my new Dell Inspiron 3668 pc launch Ubuntu when it boots up, I
went into the setup screen (bios and other stuff) and the Caps Lock
light comes on there. So, it is not a problem with the new pc but,
instead, is a problem with Ubuntu. Is there a command in Ubuntu to
enable the Caps Lock light to come on, or is this one of the unknown
problems with using the newest version of amd64 server on an i3 machine?
Knowing if Caps Lock is on is important when entering passwords because
the Caps Lock key might accidentally be hit. I am sure I did not have
this problem when I was playing around with Ubuntu 32-bit I386 on my
2004 vintage machine.

Re: [LINUX_Newbies] A PC

 

Last night I downloaded amd64 and installed it on the new pc. I had no
problems at all. In retrospect, the keyboard lock up problem I had may
have been the result of trying to install an old version of 32-bit
ubuntu, version 14. It may be this old version could not recognize some
things in the newer pc's and the keyboards. For example, during the
install with amd64 the message "Fast TCS Calibration Failed", indicating
a monitor problem, never came up. The reason I was using the old ver 14
is because that was the version I downloaded to install on my 2004
vintage tower case. I never intended to have the final web site on this
machine. I put it on this machine just to learn a little about Ubuntu.
Last year I had downloaded version 14 because the newer version, ver 16
32-bit, was too large to fit on my CD disk. I did not know at the time I
could have used a thumb drive in a USB port.

It is odd that in amd64 the sudo aptitude command is not recognized. Now
it is apt. One would have thought the developers of Ubuntu would have
kept the old along with the new.
