I use Thunderbird on Ubuntu Linux and have just upgraded to Ubuntu 10 / Thunderbird 3. One of my gripes however is that Thunderbird uses a number of shortcut keys that have no secondary key requirements, for example, "Mark as Read" is M. Not ControlM. Just M. Worse, "Mark as Junk" is J. Which means I sometimes inadvertently mark messages as Junk.
How can I customize Thunderbird's shortcuts so, for example, "Mark as Junk" is ControlJ?
I*am using Kubuntu 10.04. I would like to change some of the standard shortcut keys for bash (terminal).
Ctrl-C to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Ctrl-V to paste from the clipboard into the terminal. Ctrl-Z to undo. Ctrl-Shift-C (or even better, Super-C) to terminate the command. Ctrl-Shift-Z (or Super-Z) to be the background command. I*don't even know what Ctrl-V did before, some I*won't worry about remapping it.
EDIT:*I*have no idea what is putting the * char after each "I". Maybe this is a non-breaking space?
I wish to make a shortcut which write my name in Thunderbird.Well, my name has an accent in it and I'm really fed up with doing "Insert -> Characters and Symbols" at the end of each of each of my messages, either in my languages or in English.So, I'm looking for a way to write it in just one click or one command.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 running on a partition off of my Win7 hard drive. The thing I really like about Windows 7 is when I hit windows key+left or win+right, the current window will snap over to the left half or right half of the screen, respectively.
I removed pulseaudio save for the libs, and now I can't lock down my desktop with ctrl+alt+l anymore. I can still lock the system with the menu (System > Lock Screen), but it's kind of annoying. Removing pulseaudio has cleared up all of my mplayer stutter issues, but I would like to be able to use the keyboard shortcut keys. Here's the command I used to strip out pulseaudio:
Is there any way to disable shortcut keys in XFCE Terminal ? I can't seem to bind the shortcut keys, and F1 especially really gets in the way for some programs. Have no clue who thought it would be a good idea to bind F1 to a stupid help screen, when many terminal programs need this. I am using fluxbox, so maybe this has something to do with it.
I am using Ubuntu linux, and I want fn + up key and fn + down key to change the brightness instead on fn + F4 and fn + F5. I've tried looking for something in the Keyboard Shortcuts menu, but there is no command or key specified to do that. I could make a custom key shortcut, but I can't find the command to change the brightness. Is there a way to make another key do this? My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1545.

I'm using Thunderbird 3.x on Ubuntu (Linux). When I save an attachment to my computer, the file gets saved with only the owner (me) having read/write permissions. In other words, the file gets saved as -rw
Frequently, I want my group to have permission, or to give read permission to everyone. Is there a way to do change Thunderbird's default file permissions so I don't have to do this manually every time?
I don't know if this is a configuration issue or a hardware issue, but I have a Kinesis Advantage USB keyboard and for some reason the F3-F5 keys aren't responding as they used to. They don't respond to anything and, when I tried using F5 on Emacs, it said <XF86AudioNext> is undefined, so I guess it's a weird mapping problem.
Any idea how I could remap them to the original meaning?
I'm running Debian (Squeeze) and I have a toshiba portege m700. It has five buttons on the front just under the screen, which are the only ones accessible when you flip the screen over into tablet mode. One of them is for rotating the screen, and another is for switching to external display. I want to remap the remaining three to control, alt and super so that I can use shortcuts with the stylusThe problem is, when I used showkey to find out the key codes, I found out that each button generates more than one key code:Button 1:
key 126 press >> super_r, although this is distinct from the actual super key (125) key 7 press >> 6 key 7 release key 126 release
Is there some way that I can change the icon for a shortcut on the panel at the top of my desktop? I'm running Photoshop CS4 in Wine but I couldn't install it so I just copied the program files folder from my Windows 7 installation. Then, I just just drag-and-dropped Photoshop.exe on the panel, creating a shortcut to it. However, this will just show a generic icon for an executable file.
I have read the 5, 10, 12 things to do after installing 11.04! I have installed Compiz Config Settings Manager and have played with the Launcher Icon Size slider.
That works well with "the Launcher" on the left but has no effect on the icons in the Shortcuts menu that appears when you hit the "Super" key. These are now so huge they run off the left of the screen (see attached screen capture). There is nothing obviously different from Compiz in the gconf Configuration Editor either.When you go into one of the sub-menus (e.g. More Apps) the icons are fine and fit to screen. PS, I like slightly bigger fonts and icons by default in everything and achieve this through a smaller Monitor resolution.
Do not know yet if unity is something for me, but I will find out .I tried to change the keyboard shortcut for the launcher (default Alt-F2).I did this by changing it in ccsm, under "unity plugin"-"Key to execute a command".
I want to remap my keys for a game I'm playing, for example WASD instead of arrows to walk, r, f, c to act like f1, f2, f3 and so on. I'm aware of xmodmap, but I want to do this just for one application and be able to use hotkey to toggle between this script and default setting. I've been trying to use AutoKey, but I cannot force it to work just for specific app. On windows solution is AutoHotKey, but it won't work through wine.
So I have sshopen-server installed on a few machines on my home network. I just rebuilt one of the machines and gave it the same hostname and the same ip address that it had before I rebuilt it. But when I go to connect to the machine now I get this error.
I want to set fn + Up or Down Arrow to change the brightness of the screen, instead of fn + F4 and F5. However, I don't know the command to do that, and I can't find it in Keyboard Shortcuts.I've seen something about editing a file in /var, but that requires root permissions.
When using the above image viewer, it would be easier for me to be able to close the viewer/image while displaying an image in fullscreen mode, by clicking on the middle mouse button, rather than right clicking and choosing "Exit full screen", then clicking on the cross in the corner of the window. This is similar to how Firefox can close tabs by middle-clicking with the mouse wheel.
Mouse function editing in GQview seems limited to controlling whether the scroll wheel pans up and down the picture, or moves to the next/previous picture. Any way I can edit the preferences file for GQview at .gqview/gqviewrc in order to achieve the above shortcut facility on my mousewheel, for this application? Or is anyone familiar with another Linux image viewer that does allow the mouse to be programmed in this way?
