Fedora :: Keyboard Shortcut Doesn't Save On Re-boot
Jan 28, 2011
If I change the keyboard shortcut for Open a Terminal in System > Preferences it will not stay in there if i log-out or reboot. When i log back in the shortcut is set to disabled, and I have tried different key combos and they give the same result. I am using Fedora 14 btw and hopefully you guys know of a solution. I tried making a custom command also using the gnome-terminal command but the terminal launches with a different directory other than my home directory when using that method.
I have an Asus Eee PC with Ubuntu Netbook Remix (Unity). The other day, I turned off the wireless using the keyboard shortcut to save battery life when I was somewhere without wireless, but now it's not turning back on. I tried restarting, I've done the keyboard shortcut several times, and it still just says "disconnected" for wireless and wired, even though there are several wireless networks around me right now. There aren't any options in Network Connections or Network Tools to turn on the wireless. Is there a way to manually turn it back on?
I created a bunch of keyboard shortcuts via "System > Preferences Keyboard Shortcuts," and they all work flawlessly except one: Nautilus. I just set it to run the command "nautilus" and it doesn't do anything. My GNOME panel launcher runs the same command just fine.
I have Fedora 12 and I'm using it as a server and there's no keyboard. Everything works fine, except that I can't reboot. I can see the system coming up, but at the end it seems to stop / hang. Maybe something todo with gdm, I don't know!
I downloaded the Fedora 11 KDE livecd, installed it, and after the reboot when I get to that "firstboot" screen, I can't move the mouse, the keyboard doesn't work, I have to hold down the power button to turn off the computer.
I am trying to start a script via a keyboard shortcut.The trouble is, it runs fine when i start it from the terminal, either by opening a terminal and starting it there or by "double-click", but when I use the shortcut it loads, but doesn't work properly. This is probably because it asks for user input, which would be put in the terminal window.Is there a way to start a script in a terminal window by default?
I'd like to change the keyboard shortcuts for switching between workspaces. I have compiz enabled. In Ubuntu I see entries for these keyboard shortcuts in the Keyboard Shortcuts preferences app. They are not there on my Fedora 14 system. How can I add them?
I have a problem with my keyboard shortcuts. I go to System/preferences/keyboard shortcuts and then enable my "Open Terminal" command for ctrl+alt+t . Then it works. But whenever I restart, it never saves, and I have to do the whole process over again.
my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt
Just upgraded from Fedora 10 to 11 and cannot setup wireless connection via NetworkManager. By some reason it doesn't store WPA key. There are following errors in the message log:
Code: Aug 14 14:37:05 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> connection_get_settings_cb(): connection_get_settings_cb: Invalid connection: 'NMSettingConnection' / 'uuid' invalid: 1 Aug 14 14:37:11 mike-dev NetworkManager: <WARN> wait_for_connection_expired(): Connection (2) /org/freedesktop/NetworkManagerSettings/2 failed to activate (timeout): (0) Connection was not provided by any settings service
How to bring the "Type to search..." window into focus directly, not by switching to the "Windows view" first?Anybody knows the relevant keybord shortcut? I went though at a number of introductions to GNOME 3, and also examined various tabs at:
I have a weird problem with Firefox with the following scenario: When I view a picture from a website in the browser and the pictures gets deleted from the server (while I'm viewing it) - I can't save the picture to my hard drive. Firefox always tries to download the picture from the web-server although it's in the cache. Resulting in an image file which contains the HTTP 404 response from the server. *lol*
I installed Ubuntu using Wubi, and the boot loader does not detect my keyboard. Does the windows boot loader only support PS2 keyboards? Would there be a workaround... like install DOS drivers for it? I have a logitech s520 keyboard.
When in Windows, I can select what OS to use, but is there a way I can select which OS to use while booted into Ubuntu? Is there a program that will let me modify the windows boot loader from within Ubuntu?
I know that there was some shortcut to see detailed boot process, hardware information. I think it was 'R' but I'm not sure.(I know that I could also remove 'quite' option but this is not the case like also virtual consoles. I'm looking for this particular shortcut and some information what it actually does)
I recently switched from GNOME to xfce, and I can't get working a simple keyboard shortcut to ssh to another machine.
In GNOME, I made a launcher (which gnome-do found); the first time I ran the launcher I'd get an X11 popup asking for by ssh passphrase, and then it would be saved for the rest of the GNOME session, making logins nice and fast.
In xfce, a similar launcher opens a new xfce4-terminal, which asks for the passphrase every time. I made a keyboard shortcut to "ssh -X me@server" -- this open an X11 popup for the passphrase, but no terminal, because there is no "run in terminal" option for keyboard shortcuts.
I'd be okay with running "ssh-add" at every login, but it has to be system-wide, rather than attached to one terminal instance. Passphraseless ssh is an options but a creepy one.
I'm a huge keyboard shortcut fan. I can't stand mice. So this is a big one for me.
My Alt+F10 (maximize) and Alt+F9 (minimize) keyboard shortcuts work just fine. I read everywhere (i.e., [URL]) that the Alt+F5 combo should unmaximize a maximized window. But it's not working. Can't find anything that says Debian excludes that combo.
Is this to be expected or is something amiss? I think its meant to be a default shortcut, so don't want to start playing around with customizations prematurely.
Searched through the forum, couldn't find anything under the following search terms: Alt F5; Alt+F5: Alt +F5: Alt-F5: maximize: unmaximize. Did I miss the magic string?
I write a lot in French and I need the french accent on my ubuntu. How can I get the shortcuts I used in windows such as "alt+130" to work again? When I use them, either nothing happen or it changes my tabs in firefox and chrome, I haven't found how to override this. I don't seem to have found anything in keyboard shortcuts...
i set delete as a keyboard shortcut for the gnome-terminal accidentally and later changed it to ALT+T but now both DELETE and ALT+T open up a terminal its really annoying not to be able to use the delete key.....every time i press DELETE a terminal window opens up.
I am experiencing problems with keyboard shortcuts. It started to happen after I installed gnome shell and switched back to gdk. the most annoying part is that every single keyboard shortcut works except the most used one AKA "run a terminal"
first I thought it had something to do with shortcuts in compiz but no. I changed the keyboard shortcut for "run a terminal" to something wild like CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+N and it still doesn't work. That command is not doing anything... Can i add my custom commands to keyboard shortcuts and how?
Mod4' is my 'Super' key. I have assigned <Mod4>Tab to the 'launch panel main menu' shortcut command in the Ubuntu 10.10 keyboard shortcuts settings. However, whenever I press <Mod4>+Tab, my windows seem to switch as if I were pressing Alt+Tab. How can I disable this other unnecessary action for <Mod4>+Tab?
I frequently need to take screenshots of a game (flash-based, running inside a browser), in particular it's statistics screen which is shown when I hold the TAB key. The problem is, when I take a screenshot, either by pressing PrintScreen key or by pressing a custom-defined shortcut, the game responds to this keypress and hides its statistics screen, so the screenshot doesn't contain the information I need.I figured out how to overcome this using a custom application launcher icon; but this requires using the mouse which is rather inconvenient.define a shortcut that wouldn't be processed by the active application? Or maybe there's some screenshot utility that does this out of the box?
I run KDE 3.X and for the life of it, can't figure out how to assign the "ALT+SHIFT" to switch between keyboard layouts? The default AL+SHIFT+K switches from EN to second one and after that it (obviously) doesn't work. saw a few posts (http://www.linux-archive.org/gentoo-...alt-shift.html), but the flag is not changing in the tray.I also tried to go thru "Keyboard shortcuts", but for whatever reason, it doesn't want to accept the combination of "alt+shift" and expects another key ( i guess).I'm using Centos 5.2 and the the keyboard model is "MS natural keyboard pro" with US and two Cyrillic layouts - one of them is phonetic.
On SuSE 10.0 I used to be able to use shift + ctrl + unicode code. That does not seem to work now. How can I get this feature again? I miss it. I used to use it a lot to put the copyright symbol over my artwork in Gimp.
I use Opensuse 11.3. I had configured my Gnome so that when I press the home hotkey it launches Firefox (the standard web browser). And I configured Firefox so that it starts on my selected home page. Everything worked out right until I installed and trie KDE yesterday. When I went back to Gnome and pressed the home key it launchs Firefox but rather than appearing my home page on it what appears is the content of my home folder. I got so mad at it that I uninstalled everything related to KDE. Deleted .mozilla folder, what reset Firefox. Nothing worked at all! I deleted the folder that stores keyboard shortcuts on Gnome, what reset all shortcuts. But when I redefine the home key or any other key to launch web browser, what the key does is to launch Firefox with the content of my home folder.when I launch Firefox from menu it starts on the home page I selected. When I launch it from any custom hotkey it starts on my home folder.It may seem a little thing but it is so disgusting for me that sometimes I even feel willing to re-install the whole system, and i just didn't so because it took me several days to configure it the way it is.Does anyone know what is happening here and how can I change it?
