Debian :: How To Change Keys For Just One Specific Application

Aug 14, 2015

I want to remap my keys for a game I'm playing, for example WASD instead of arrows to walk, r, f, c to act like f1, f2, f3 and so on. I'm aware of xmodmap, but I want to do this just for one application and be able to use hotkey to toggle between this script and default setting. I've been trying to use AutoKey, but I cannot force it to work just for specific app. On windows solution is AutoHotKey, but it won't work through wine.

Debian :: Set Default Application For Specific File Extensions

Dec 17, 2015

How to properly set some entries in:

$HOME/.config/mimeapps.list

so that:
*.odb files are opened by default with libreoffice base
*.org files (just org files not plain text files) are opened by default with emacs

For some reason I can not figure out how to proceed.

As far as I know - i.e. for what I have been reading in the documentation - the default application for a given MIME-type is specified by writing into the group [Default Applications] in the mimeapps.list file

My configuration is the following:

- 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u6 (2015-11-09) x86_64 GNU/Linux
- gnome desktop

Ubuntu Security :: SSH Keys Only Good For Specific PC?

Feb 11, 2010

I have enabled ssh key based logins for one of my servers and disabled normal password based logins. It just occurred to me that the public key which I generated on my pc, and uploaded to the servers authorized_keys, may in fact only apply to my local PC / user account. So basically if my system crashes I would have no way to login to the server...? Is it not possible to "share" public keys so other people (PCs / accounts) can use them?

General :: Remapping Keys On Keyboard - Map A Specific Button To Xkill?

May 16, 2011

I am currently using xmodmap for remapping keys like Caps Lock on my keyboard.However, my keyboard has a bunch of keys on the top that are rarely used (Multimedia keyboard with buttons like Internet, Music, Next song, Mute etc)I want to remap these keys to specific commands (Not keys).

For example: Pressing the Internet button should fire up my Firefox (/usr/bin/firefox)(which happens only in Windows for me)Also I need to map a specific button to xkill.

Software :: General X Setting (NOT WM-specific) To Map Keys / Mouse Buttons?

Apr 24, 2010

I'm trying out various windows mgrs and I'd love to be able to preserve certain key mappings...
...but what's REALLY important are the MOUSE KEYS!!!!!!!
I use the mouse left-handed. I can set that in Gnome or KDE easily, but if I go into, say Ratpoison, it's un-set again.
Is there a system-wide (or as close to it as possible) mouse setting?

Debian Hardware :: Getting Lenny Working On Macbook / Can't Use Brightness Keys To Change Screen Brightness?

Feb 9, 2010

I'd been trying to get into Linux before I bought it so I figured that I would try to get it onto my new Mac so that I could use it wherever I am. I decided to try Debian Lenny 5.0.3 a whirl after reading about all the different distros available. I've successfully installed it and I can get to it with rEFIt, and I have quite a few things working such as the video drivers and wifi. However, I've had trouble getting it to a level where it'd be usable away from home. Here are the main problems I'm worried about:

1) I installed pommed but I still can't use the brightness keys to change the screen brightness. I'm not sure if there's some other workaround for this?

2) I tried some recommended power management packages (gnome-power-manager) but it doesn't seem to be accessible or functional right now. I don't have any way to control it or get to it that is obvious to me. Is an icon or anything supposed to appear on the task bar when you install or what? Getting some sort of power management on here is important because it gets really lousy battery life otherwise.

3) Being a Macbook, there's no right-click button. Multitouch would be really nice (two-finger scrolling!) but I'd be OK with ANY way to right-click with the touchpad. I have a wireless USB keyboard/mouse combo that works at home at least . . . right out of the box too!

4) I've seen some packages called the Mactel PPA, but they are made for Ubuntu. Since Debian and Ubuntu are so similar, is there any way to make those work on Lenny? I think that if I got those to work, I could fix some of the problems above. Or do I have to install Ubuntu?

5) I just noticed that the sound doesn't seem to work yet either.

General :: Set Specific Application To Always Reside In Ram?

Jun 12, 2010

how can you set specific application's data to always reside in ram, so it runs and launches super fast all the time?

i recall reading about how you could put all your libs folders into ramfs once, but it took up a lot of ram, so i never bothered, and it was really just for faster (instant) launching times.

i just want to be able to set that for specific things, like for example, the GIMP and Inkscape.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Specific Sound Car Per Application?

Oct 28, 2010

I have two sound cards in my computer. OpenSuSE 11.3 recognizes them both without a problem, and I can play sound through each of them. Is it possible to set one application to use one sound card simultaneously with another sound card routing to a different application? That would be sweet. For example, I have my surround speakers plugged into one sound card, so I can provide music for the whole room, and have my PC speakers next to the monitor playing a movie.

General :: Make Specific Keymaps For Application ?

Oct 14, 2010

I want to make specific keymaps for application, that working only in it and doesn't affect other apps.

For example, I already use my Caps key to toggle input language (via xorg.conf), but I want Capslock to behave like Esc in vim.

Looks like xmodmap doesn't have any options related to that.

I have a need to run a specific app as a specific user when the machine boots into init 3. I can not run this as root so I need to specify a user. Can someone tell me how to accomplish this?I usually have to log in and start this application by typing check -D which starts this app and daemonizes it. I want to be able to run that at boot with my normal user not root.I hope I explained this correctly.I have added it to rc.local but it runs as root.

I have a laptop running Ubuntu hooked up to a TV via a VGA to S-Video converter with the VGA-out through an external monitor, and I am trying to find a way to set vlc or mplayer to open fullscreen in the external monitor by default. Eventually I want to be able to hit enter on a video file and have it play on the TV without any dragging to the external monitor.

Ubuntu :: Select An Application To Open A (specific) File?

Mar 16, 2011

I have this problem, that I want a specific .exe file to open in Mono, but all other .exe files to open in Wine.

However, the only option there is, are 'Select an application to open XXXX.exe and other files of type "DOS/Windows executable"'

but I just want to open THIS .exe file in mono, and the rest in WINE.

I have been in similar situations before, in that I opened a folder containing music with VLC, and it worked fine, but after that, it assumed that I wanted to open all folders in VLC.

I assume that there must be an option for this, and I can not see why it ain't an option by default.

(I'm using Ubuntu 10.10)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Application Specific Audio Output To Headphones Only?

Jan 22, 2010

I currently have my desktop setup with two displays, one of them being my living room tv that I run Boxee on. My problem is that all the audio runs through the same speakers preventing me from listening to music or gaming at the same time as when Boxee is in use.

I would like to know if it's possible to split the audio so that an application of my choosing only outputs sound through my headphones. I was thinking it would be possible with some of the controls in pulse, but if it is I cannot figure it out.

Ubuntu Networking :: Forcing An Application To Use Specific Network Interface

Apr 19, 2010

How can I force a Wine application (or Wine itself) to use a specific network interface? I have installed hamachi and am trying to play starcraft over virtual LAN. However, when I run Starcraft with hamachi running, it does not work. I have now determined that hamachi creates a network interface called "ham0". How do I force Wine/Starcraft to use the "ham0" network connection? I have looked into forcebindip but it crashes on wine.

Ubuntu Networking :: 2+ Internet Interfaces - Control Application Specific Usage?

Mar 24, 2010

I currently have two internet interfaces installed, one is ethernet (eth0) and the second is wireless (wlan0). Many command line applications allow you to specify which interface should be used, but many gui apps don't provide this option or at least I haven't found it. I have some questions:

1. How would I tell Firefox to use only my wlan0 interface? If it's possible in Firefox, is this also possible with Google Chrome?

2. If a program doesn't provide a command line argument to support this, is there a standalone application that could help manage preferences for multiple applications?
