Software :: Switch Keyboard Shortcut

Dec 20, 2010

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 (, 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.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Shortcut To Switch To Previous Window

Apr 20, 2010

This is probably a silly question but I couldn't yet find the answer and I guess someone else must have solved it already, so... How can I activate the keyboard shortcut ALT+SHIFT+TAB to switch to the previous window (As opposite to ALT+TAB)?I'm using gnome, I went to the keyboard shortcut panel, but I didn't know how to add a new action (one that is not already there).I also use another distro (Mandriva) on another computer, also with gnome and that key combination is already there, which is very useful for me.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut Setup To Switch Keyboard Layouts

Nov 30, 2010

I am using Gnome 2.32 (Ubuntu 10.10 /x64 ).
By using the supplied keyboard configuration utility I successfully set up two language layouts and they work perfectly. Since I also often work on Windows and default shortcut to switch layouts in it is Alt+Shift (and after many years I am very used to this), I tried to setup the same shortcut in Gnome. But with a Gnome I have a problem: once I press Alt+Shift - layouts switch immediately and I am unable to do Alt+Shift+<Something> shortcuts.

So my main question is:
Is it possible to teach Gnome's keyboard layout switcher to do the actual switch of layouts only if I press and release the Alt+Shift combination without touching any other keys?

Ubuntu :: Copy "command" For Keyboard Shortcut?

Jul 20, 2010

I use a variety of text editors and web browsers with SSH often, and I want to bind my text copy/paste to windows+c/windows+v combos at the global level for better workflow (ctrl c has it's obvious problems in this scenario).I went to create a custom keyboard shortcut (which will hopefully override individual apps as well), and it asks for the command.

Ubuntu :: Disabling Keyboard Repeat From The Command-line

Apr 11, 2010

Some Flash games don't work very well on Linux because when you hold down a key (such as one of the cursor keys) the Flash player sends the game multiple KeyDown and KeyUp events, leaving the game unable to tell the difference between a user holding a key or a user tapping a key quickly. (On other platforms it seems that typematic repeat generates multiple KeyDown events but not KeyUp events.)

Anyway, to work around this problem, I go to System->Preferences->Keyboard and disable "Key presses repeat when key is held down" when I want to play a Flash game, then put it back afterwards. I do this often enough that I'd like to set up some shortcut keys to change the setting. I figured out the following commands to turn it off and on again:

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/repeat --type bool false
gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/peripherals/keyboard/repeat --type bool true

My problem is that when I have tried entering these on the command-line (in a gnome-terminal), X-windows seems to get confused and behaves as though I'm holding down the enter key. It doesn't stop if I press enter again. I tried pressing ctrl-alt-f1 to switch to a text console and it worked fine, but when I pressed ctrl-alt-f7 to go back to X it still behaved as though I was holding down enter. I had to press ctrl-alt-backspace to reset X before it would return to normal. I *think* it happens in particular when changing the setting from true to false. I'm running Karmic Koala with all the updates.

Debian :: How To Pair Bluetooth Keyboard Via Command Line On Jessie

Mar 27, 2015

I installed the Open Source Media Center (OSMC) on my Raspberry Pi 2. It's based on Debian Jessie. I bought a Blueooth Keyboard (Keysonic KSK-3211) and an USB-Bluetooth adapter (CSL Bluetooth Stick Nano). And now I am looking for a way to pair the keyboard with the raspberry via command line.

I'm new to all this bluetooth stuff in debian. It's the first time I try to install it. As far as I've understood I need an agent that is started with the pairing PIN. Then I type this PIN at the keyboard and that's it. Am I right?

The problem is, that every agent I've found in howtos or descriptions like bluez-simple-agent or bluetooth-agent (like described here [URL] ....) is not installed (and as far as I know can't be installed) under Jessie.

The bluetooth adapter is recognized

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool dev
        hci0    00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C
the keyboard is found
Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ hcitool scan
Scanning ...
        00:12:A1:70:42:28       Bluetooth Keyboard

And I can ping the keyboard

Code: Select allosmc@osmc:~$ sudo l2ping 00:12:A1:70:42:28
Ping: 00:12:A1:70:42:28 from 00:1A:7D:DA:71:0C (data size 44) ...
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 0 time 14.82ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 1 time 9.91ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 2 time 32.62ms
0 bytes from 00:12:A1:70:42:28 id 3 time 28.81ms
^C4 sent, 4 received, 0% loss

So everything seems to be ok ... but I can't find the command for pairing the keyboard. Looks like something changed in Jessie so that the old tutorials are outdated.

General :: Launch Application With Keyboard Shortcut In Gnome

Dec 13, 2010

I use ctrl + shift + s to launch synaptic in KDE. That works wonderful and it is standardized on all my systems. I want to define the same in gnome, so that it does not matter if I'm in gnome or KDE.Where can I do this?Now before you start mentioning, I am familiar with keyboard launchers like launchy or gnome do (but have to admit that I don't know that much what gnome do does in all extents), so I am not looking for a program that launches an app after typing a few letters. I want exactly that keyboard combination, everything else will not do it.

I just mention that, because it happens all the time that I see in my posts that I ask:
How can I do B with Y? I don't want to use Z. (specifically asking the question) and then hear as an answer: you can do B with Z!And I am always tempted to answer: That is not what I asked, I asked something specific and got an answer that does not concern it.

General :: Ubuntu - Keyboard Shortcut Sometimes Does Not Display Desktop

Mar 24, 2011

When ctrl alt d or the icon on the bottom left corner is pressed, it sometimes doesn't show the desktop and instead restores hidden windows. Is there a way to access the desktop directly, without only one shortcut ? I was also wondering how useful are these hidden windows (sometimes, the icon in the application bar is bar after being idle for a while).

Debian Multimedia :: General Way To Switch Keyboard Layout?

Nov 22, 2010

What is the general way to switch the keyboard layout?
What works for me currently is the custom Section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/kbd.conf.
However this section must include Option "Device" "/dev/input/by-path/..." which identifies the current keyboard. This works fine for my laptop keyboard.
However when I attach USB keyboard, keyboard switching does not work.
I also found somewhere it should be done via /etc/default/keyboard, but that does not work for me at all.

Ubuntu :: 'switch Between Windows' Shortcut Not Working?

May 9, 2011

I somehow managed to screw up my 'switch between windows shortcut' when changing the settings for compiz. Now I cannot get it to work at all, despite trying to solutions on this and other forums. I removed compiz with the software center and my alt-tab shortcut still didn't work--although it IS enabled and set correctly in the System Settings > Keyboard Shortcuts menu. I reset the alt-tab combo so something else (alt-space, which works for its normal setting of bringing down the window's dropdown menu) but it still did not work to switch between windows.

General :: Setup An Alias Or Shortcut To Do The *nix Find Command?

Apr 5, 2011

When at the command line, I find that I have to type out this command very often: find . -iname "*php" -exec grep -H query {} ; I'd love to set up an alias, script, or shortcut to make it work easier. I would like to do something like: mysearch query ("*php") (.) It would be great if the command could accept three arguments, in reverse order:

query string, file name expression, directory If the second two arguments were omitted they would default to not being included, and the current directory. Finally, the icing on the cake would be that if additional variables were included (4th, 5th, 6th...) they would be injected as additional arguments for the find command (like I could say -type d) at the end. Attempted code I tried the example below, but I'm still having trouble setting default values. What am I doing wrong?

find $c -iname $b -exec grep -H $a {} ;
