Fedora :: Emacs And Re-mapping Ctrl To Caps?

Sep 16, 2010

I have the Cap Locks key remapped as an additional Ctrl key. (I did that using the GUI System->Preference->Keyboard). This works fine all the time except when issuing one command to emacs. If I do CapLocks+Alt+ it does nothing yet Ctrl+Alt+ indents as needed. Since CapLocks should be the same as Ctrl I do not know what is causing the problem or how to solve it.

Fedora :: Keyboard Doesn't Work After Setting - Swap Ctrl And Caps Lock

Jun 9, 2010

I'm running fedora 13 on a Dell Latitude E6500. It's a dual 64-bit system.

It was working, but then I tried to swap caps lock and control.

I used:
System->Preferences->Keyboard
Layouts->USA->Options
Then, under Control Key Position, I selected swap caps lock and control.

Now, my keyboard won't work in the Keyboard Preferences test area or in any other window or when the screen-lock comes on.

I tried logging out. I tried rebooting. I tried deleting my .gnome2 directory. Nothing seems to work. I can use the keyboard on other accounts, so the keyboard is not the problem.

Ubuntu :: Scripting A Permanent CTRL / CAPS Swap In Gnome?

Mar 3, 2011

I have a bash script that I use to configure a vanilla Ubuntu (10.10 Maverick) installation to be exactly the way I want it. I make extensive use of gconftool-2 to configure the desktop, set up shortcut keys, etc.

Now, I'm trying to swap the CTRL and CAPS keys. I have found two ways of doing this: In Gnome, go to System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Layout -> Options and make the change in there. This works well, but I don't know how to script this; the setting doesn't seem to be stored in the usual place as I can't find it with gconf-editor. Add the line setxkbmap -option "ctrl:swapcaps" to my .bashrc file. That works too, until I suspend the machine & then resume it. At that point the CTRL and CAPS behaviour return to normal, until I cause .bashrc to be run again by opening a new shell. This behaviour has been reported as a bug in RedHat. Edited to add: JeffG on [URL] suggested adding the call to setxkbmap to my gdm.conf file in the script section; that resulted in a failure to load X on startup.

switching those keys that is both permanent, and can be scripted?

Ubuntu :: Keys Tab / Caps / Shift / Ctrl / Alt / Super Stop Working.

Oct 16, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu 10.10, with KDE 4.5.2, what I've noticed is every so often my Tab, Caps, Shift, Ctrl, Alt, Super keys stop working. I'd been running Ubuntu 10.04 with Gnome and hadn't ever come across this issue. I'm not sure if this is related to KDE 4.5.2 or is possibly because I updated to 10.10 and would also occur on a Gnome environment.If I switch to my virtual machine (VMWare Workstation 7.1.2 build-301548 which I was able to get working on 10.10 using URL.... the keys work within that but if I switch back to my host desktop they stop working.To fix it I've found logging out or unplugging the keyboard and plugging it into a different USB port fixes it.

General :: Define Ctrl-[ As A Shortcut In Emacs?

Aug 9, 2010

On Linux, the Ctrl-[ key combination appears to be equivalent to hitting the Esc key. I would like to define Ctrl-[ as a shortcut in emacs but I am unable to because by the time the keystroke gets to emacs it looks like the Esc key was pressed. Is there anyway to disable this behavior so that Ctrl-[ simply means Ctrl-[?

Ubuntu :: Map Ctrl+W In Hebrew Layout(which Is Actually A Ctrl+') To Be A Ctrl+w?

Jan 5, 2010

I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.

General :: Change The Caps Lock Key To Control And Still Keep The On/off Nature Of Caps Lock?

Oct 13, 2010

Can I change the Caps Lock key to Control and still keep the on/off nature of Caps Lock? I've checked into using xmodmap and seem to have hit a dead end. Many people want to swap them, but they also want to swap the way they work. I'd rather keep my new Control key as an on/off switch for Control.

Ubuntu :: Freezes Mouse After Changing A Tab (with Ctrl+tab, Alt+#) Or Closing It (ctrl+w)?

Nov 11, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and already am really annoyed by Firefox, which freezes my mouse after changing a tab (with ctrl+tab, alt+#) or closing it (ctrl+w). After about one second, i can continue working as usual. Changing Tabs by just clicking on one does not freeze anything...Maybe some of you would think now if I am crazy because of complaining about such a little thing, but it is really annoying if you are used to work fluently with ff.Edit:I today noticed, that not only shortcuts in firefox, but all Hotkeys freeze my mouse for a second. For examle ctrl+c, ctrl+v, super+e or anything else.Do you have any Idea what causes this behaviour? Reinstalling ubuntu didn't change anything

Fedora :: Caps Lock Response Is Too Slow?

Mar 26, 2011

I know this doesn't matter to most people because most people hold shift to capitalize letters. I tap the caps lock with my pinky whenever I need something capitalized. I'm a pretty fast typer, I just don't type correctly. How do I get it so that when I'm typing and I hit Caps Lock for it to be an instant effect? For example this is what I'm getting annoyed with, here is an example of what I am having to recorrect everytime I type.

HEre IS AN Example. MY NAme IS Zachery GOchenour.

OpenSUSE :: Ctrl+z And Ctrl+c Do Not Work Without A Third Keystroke

Feb 3, 2010

I just spent a few days ripping out all the broken/buggy apps that are in the opensuse 11.2 official repos so I can finally get working software(openoffice, thunderbird, wine, eclipse, rubygems, rails, and a few others required getting the "official" versions from their respective websites to avoid strange behavior and outright broken functionality).

All of which makes updating more annoying and time-consuming. Why are opensuse packages so different anyway? Anyway, the last thing that I have noticed to fix is Konsole. For some really bizarre reason ctrl+z and ctrl+c do not work without a third keystroke: enter.Maybe this is something new with the KDE team, since they seem bent on making simple things that already work more complex, but given my experience with crappy packages in the suse repos, I am thinking this is the problem. I have looked over all the config settings that I can find and nothing fixes this affront to productivity.

Fedora :: F10, F11- Remap Keys ( Disable Caps Lock And So On With Xmodmap )?

Jun 20, 2009

In Fedora 10 they decided to change to "evdev", so if you used xmodmap in F9, these mapping have changed in F10 and F11 for that matter. In order to find the new key values start

Code:

xev and press a button you would like to know the keycode for. Write this value down. When done, make a file ".xmodmap" and put in the values. "man xmodmap" explains the format. Not easy to understand! So here is how mine looks like.

Code:
clear Lock
keycode 112 = Caps_Lock
keycode 118 = Delete
keycode 119 = Home

[Code]...

This layout is MUCH more logical than the original. Now Delete is the key just to the right of the Backspace key. Back spaces deletes to the left, and Delete deletes to the right, so these keys shoudl of course be next to each other Page Up, Page Down, Home, and End now have the same structure as the arrow keys below. This layout makes it much easier to navigate without looking at the keys, because now the layout makes sense And why shouldn't 0 be to the left of 1? of course it should. 0 is lower than 1.

Fedora :: Screen Goes Black - Mouse Frozen - Caps-lock Blinking

Dec 14, 2009

I keep starting up Fedora and I'm not able to get far (although it's not always at the same time) before my screen will go black, except it shows the mouse/cursor - but it's frozen, and thhen the caps-lock light starts blinking and I can't do anything or get it to recover. Sometimes it happens after 30 seconds, sometimes 40+ seconds and sometimes within 15 or so seconds.

How do I stop this and diagnose this?

I've tried, in the boot-startup to choose an older kernel version, butt the same thing occurs!

I have:
Fedora 11
Kernel: 2.6.29.6-217.2.16.fc11 i586
Asus EEE PC 1002HA

One other thing, it does always seem to happen after I've turned on wireless. And I've been using F11 for months now with no issue.

Here's what I've done so far, I've copied /etc/init.d/single for the structure, and tried to use dtach to provide a handle to access the process. However, my main problem is issuing the signals to kill the process (Ctrl-C) from a bash script and exit dtach (Ctrl-`)

Fedora :: Mapping The File In Memory?

Feb 2, 2010

I need to read many files very fast: reading them from the disk leads to bad performance!!I copied the files into /dev/shm, being sure that they were copied in memory, but the performance didn't improve.Then I created a tmp file system in /mnt (/mnt/tmpfs) and I mounted it withmount -osize=400m tmpfs /mnt/tmpfs -t tmpfsand copied the file in. But the performance still remain almost the same.I've the doubt that I didn't copied the file in memory!The question is: Did I make the right things?I run a FC 11 64 bit on a dual procs server with 16 Gb memory

Fedora :: Emacs As Root In 12

Dec 6, 2009

I am sufferihng from two problems running emacs in Fedora 12: Firstly, whether I am logged in as root or not, starting emacs from an xterm gives me the following messages: Finished loading /usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/egg/leim-list.el and load others... Loading /usr/share/emacs/23.1/leim/leim-list.el (source)... Loading /usr/share/emacs/23.1/leim/leim-list.el (source)...done Not much of a problem, but I would like to know how to prevent this.

However, if I am logged in as root, or if I use 'su -c emacs' I get an additional message and then emacs takes a long time to start up. The additional message is: socket(): Address family not supported by protocol I did not get this in Fedora 10, and it is not so much the message but more the delay of a few seconds in starting up which is annoying me.

Fedora :: Random Times Roles Of Caps Lock And Control Keys Gets Reverted Back To Normal

Oct 18, 2010

I have a problem with keyboard mappings on F13. I have the following in my .xmodmap file that is run from .bash_profile:

[code]...

The problem is that at seemingly random times the roles of the caps lock and control keys (and the other customisations) gets reverted back to normal - which makes for an awful lot of confusion! Running xmodmap again switches them to how I like it, but again after a seemingly random period it resets itself. This occurs under KDE and Gnome in F13, but did not occur in F12. Using the KDE keyboard settings dialog to switch caps lock and control does the exhibits the same behaviour.
