General :: Add Keyboard Shortcuts For OSX Terminal / Xterm?

Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut for a terminal command in OSX. Basically most of the times i open the terminal app in MAC in order to ssh into a certain server foo. What I want to do is add a keyboard shortcut (say ^k) so that on a terminal when I do that, it runs "ssh foo" in the terminal.

Software :: Keyboard Custom Shortcuts Within Terminal?
Is it possible to configure the shell [in xterm, tty, whatever] to recognize custom shortcuts? That is, can I bind any program to Ctrl+X, Alt+X, etc. shortcuts? I know how to do this with Gnome/KDE/Fluxbox, but I'm interested in doing it on a shell.

Ubuntu :: Terminal Keyboard Shortcuts Don't Work In AWN?
I'm unsure as to how I can use keyboard shorts to close the current tab or to switch between tabs. Does anyone know them or know any other keyboard-based options for using the terminal in AWN? I can open a new tab by ctrl+shift+t but ctrl+shift+w doesn't work and i've never known how to switch between tabs

I am running openSUSE 11.2 and I am trying to make the key combination Alt + ` open a terminal. No keyboard combination I try works, not even Ctrl + X or anything, and I have tried both "Run a terminal" and "Open a terminal". I have logged out and back in, and even restarted, and it still doesn't work.

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts Not Working - Gnome
I don't know when this started happening, but my shortcuts such as Super+D to minimize all and go to the desktop and Ctrl+Alt+T to open a terminal, etc, have stopped working.

Other shortcuts, such as Alt+F1 and Alt+F2 work correctly, as well as the compiz ones.

General :: Setting Keyboard Shortcuts In Ubuntu?
Is it possible to do the following in Ubuntu? If so can someone point me in the right direction.Say you want to set a keyboard shortcut to do the following: For examples sake, set Alt+F to open Firefox and maximize it, but only if Firefox is not already running. If it is running and not maximized, then maximize the most recently touched Firefox window. If it is maximized, then minimize Firefox.

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts Only Work After Clicking On The Desktop?
I've started using the keyboard shortcuts in Linux Mint with the Gnome desktop, and I've found that they don't work unless I first click on the desktop with the mouse.

The problem occurs if I start with no application windows open, then open a single application, and later close it leaving an empty desktop. If any other app windows are open the keyboard shortcuts still work. But if there are no other windows open the shortcuts fail to work until I click on the desktop. It's as though the system fails to return the input focus to the desktop when the last remaining app window is closed.

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts - Make Disappeared Status Bar Appear?
I am using VNC viewer to remotely access a Linux machine. The problem is when I accessed it, I pressed a button which caused the status bar to disappear (containing menus such as 'Application', etc).

Then I couldn't get it again, even the title bar of Eclipse disappeared and I couldn't find any way to restore it. Even terminal is not getting opened.

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts - Global Emacs-like Keybindings
I'm trying to emulate behaviour I get from KeyRemap4MacBook on Mac OS X. It lets me remap control-m to Enter, for instance, globally. Is this possible with X/GNOME? Seems like xmodmap is not suitable for remapping key combinations. I tried xbindkeys to bind control-m to xdotool key Return, but it emits control-return. I tried xdotool keyup control; xdotool key Return; xdotool keydown control but it stills behaves unpredictably.

General :: Keyboard Shortcuts To Manage Windows/workspace On KDE And RDP Connection
On PC-BSD 8.1 (KDE) I have four workspaces. I want to launch rdesktop 1.6 in one of them, full screen if possible (I'll settle for nearly-full in a window if I have to), and be able to do the following:

Switch between windows in the remote session using Alt+Tab. Switch between local workspaces using either the default Ctrl+F1 or what I've switched it to, my preferred Alt+F1.

It seems if I use the -K option, I get 2 but not 1. If I don't, I get 1 but not 2. Is there no way to do this? How can I tell rdesktop to send or not send a specific key combination?
