Fedora :: Change The Language Of The Action Labels Shown In The Keyboard Shortcuts Window?
Sep 6, 2010
how can I change the language of the action labels shown in the Keyboard Shortcuts window? System language is set to English (United States), but the mentioned descriptions are displayed in Italian language.
3. Keyboard shortcuts do not work at all and if I want them back working, I have to click on the desktop's background I bet it has something to do with focus or compiz settings, because I've already had some problems with those in Unity. Now I'm on the "classic" ubuntu desktop. It didn't happen before upgrade..
Karmic there was a tab inside "System->Preferences->Appearance" called "Interface" which allowed me to modify the keyboard shortcuts. I had <Backspace> to move backwards in Nautilis and <Shift><Backspace> to move forward.
Without this tab can anyone tell me how I can modify the shortcuts to do this? I have spent some time looking at gconf-editor but nothing is jumping out at me, particularly with regards to the back and forward browsing.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS, but wanted to use Banshee instead of Rhythmbox. After running Code: sudo aptitude install banshee I wanted to bind my "Media" button on my keyboard to run banshee; unfortunately, it still wants to run rhythmbox. Where can I change the default command executed by these keyboard shortcuts? I can't seem to find them in gconf-editor under apps/metacity/* and googling has proved fruitless in finding where this configuration file is located.
how to change my input language (the way typing in accents affects the output character).
Currently I am on a Brazilian abnt keyboard and an English system (which is what I want), but I am unable to output accented characters - which I sometimes want, when I am not programming. I need something to switch around, but cannot find where to configure additional languages (not keyboards) neither where to switch.
I'm doing thesis about Open source CMS -programs and I'm using Ubuntu server 10.04.1 for that.
I have used same server edition at school but I have now big problem with changing the keyboard language. Because VMware used the easy install I couldn't change the language during the installation. I have used command sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup, but I can't select the right language there.
So is there any other way to change the keyboard language to Finnish?

1) Go to the above website using Firefox browser. Wait for "Done".2) Type the letters 'J', 'u', 's', 't', and ' ' in sequence.On my system (Fedora 13/32bit) the window scrolls several lines immediately after I key in the space character, just as if I had clicked on the gray area in the scroll bar.Why?I've had a similar thing happen several times (over the years) while writing replies in Yahoo mail but don't know what the key sequence was.he result, however, is that the Firefox browser window closes and I lose everything I've written.Shouldn't control keys HAVE to be pressed to initiate keyboard shortcuts?
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.
While installing Ubuntu 10.10 I chose the wrong language for my keyboard. I tried to fix this in keyboard preferences and it seemed to work. The correct one I need is USA (and don't know exactly the difference between USA and USA alternative international). But every time I boot my laptop I get the old language back (Dutch) while USA is above the others in my preferences.
i recently got a french msi wind U100x running on linux suse enterprise 10 sp1. (i am french and wanted a light netbook with french keyboard)i am totally new to linux and i believe that msi wind is not helping.because i am more used to english for settings, i set the main language to english, but it seems that it automatically reconfigures my keyboard mapping to english as well, so that azerty becomes qwerty.i reset it back to french, so now my keyboard is french, but so is the system.is there a way to differentiate keyboard from main user setting language?
Does anyone know how to make custom keyboard shortcuts? The commands don't seem to cross over to the system>preferences>keyboard shortcuts utility. For example, I added the file browser to my desktop. I right click, select properties, and the command is:
However, when I add a custom shortcut with that same command it doesn't work.

I have a Acer keyboard (manufacter Lite-On) and seems like I can't get the keyboard shortcuts to work. The shortcuts that DO work are search, CD play/pause/tracks, and Volume.but.. shortcuts for Web browser, email and mute vol don't work. Tried to unplug-plug the keyboard (usb) used System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts disable then Enable still no-go This only happens in /home but when I login /root every shortcut works!Anybody know a posible solution/cause??I am using Fedora 11.
It is possible to set a keyboard shortcut to start an application in KDE? As example, win+f to start firefox. I know it is an option in menu editor, but it doesn't work. From the many distros I tried with KDE ( openSUSE, Arch, Gentoo, Mandriva ), only in Fedora 12 worked this option, and I hoped it will in F13 too, this is one of the reasons I installed Fedora. So it is a bug, regression, or I am doing things not the right way?
i am trying to use greek as well, besides english, but my keyboard doesn't want to. i have visited the directory /usr/share/x11/xkb/symbols, where i can see that there is a file called gr, which most likely is for greek, but i don't know what to do with it.
I just installed F11 on my new laptop (Acer Timeline 3810T) and I have the following issue when adjusting volume. The keyboard shortcuts work, but they don't raise/lower the volume smoothly, instead they do it in 4 or 5 increments total. What's weird is that the notification that appears in the screen when I adjust the volume (the whitish square with a picture of a speaker, I think it's part of Compiz) shows the the volume changing in small increments, but when I get to the 3rd or 4th little increment from the right the volume is already muted. If I look at the alsa volume controls at the same time, I see it changing by the 4 or 5 big increments.
If I start my Lenny with Gnome I get the login window. The strange problem is, I have us keyboard there, but after login I have german keyboard. Under System -> Preferences -> Keyboard I have only german keyboard layout setuped. Howto change keyboard layout at the login window?
I have installed LXDE recently and I'm very happy with it,but there's one problem,which is that i can't switch the keyboard layout to another language,which in my case is Arabic,how do i solve this problem?
I've been having a few problems with OpenOffice.Org and the language settings.
I'm using the latest Fedora 11 and OpenOffice.Org 3.1.
When trying to change the interface language from en-us to en-gb there isn't an option for en-gb at all in the drop-down, despite me reading that other people have been able to switch the interface to en-gb. This doesn't matter that much, since it's only a few words but I think it might be affecting another issue of mine.
Despite having en-gb set for my dictionary settings, I still get the Americanised words. Stuff like: internationalised vs. internationalized, colour vs. color. I've even installed the Oxford English Dictionary extension but that doesn't show up in the dictionaries.
Edit: I've tried searching the repos. for en-gb langpacks but I can only see the general 'en' English one. Yet I can see there's an en-gb lang pack on the OpenOffice.Org website [URL] but I thought you're meant to use the repos. where possible.
Edit 2: I feel a bit stupid now, it's under uk not en-gb. 'openoffice.org-langpack-uk'. Still doesn't solve my dictionary issue Americanised spellings should come up as red underlined.
