General :: Creating Some New Short+keys For The Terminal?

Feb 1, 2010

I did something stupid; I think while creating some new short+keys for the terminal, I must have enabled an unknown feature to me. The keypad now acts like a mouse. For example; With NumLock on, I press 7 the mouse goes north+west. I press 6 the mouse pointer goes east.

Ubuntu :: Short Cut Keys To Switch Workspaces

May 25, 2011

I've tried setting short cut keys to switch workspaces with no luck. I've tried a couple of different combination of keys and none have worked. The workspace switcher works but it's sometimes a bit anoying to reach for the mouse and a lot easier to just kit a couple of keys.

Slackware :: Short Cut On Ssh Keys And Sshd Config - Checks For Accuracy?

Jun 7, 2011

I just finished my third edit of an article/tutorial I wrote on setting up RSA keys in OpenSSH and configuring SSHD to be a bit more secure than a fresh out of the box install. I also removed any derogatories about sudu Linux that might have been there Anyway, since it's kind of a big deal for anyone who uses it, and could potentially lock them out of their boxes I'd appreciate any comments related to the accuracy of the instructions, if you don't mind [URL]

Ubuntu :: Short Cut Keys Seem Not Ot Be Working - Ex Alt +F2 Dose Not Open A Pop Up Command Line

Apr 29, 2011

Some of my short cut keys seem not ot be working. Ex Alt +F2 dose not open a pop up command line. Also would like to add some short cuts. Like Ctrl + Alt+ Backspace for reboot. I went to the short cut app and I can add a short cut key, name it, but can't seem to figure out how to assign it a function. Didn't seem intuitive to me. I'm using the UNE version on a asus eel 1000.

General :: Getting F Keys To Work In Terminal Emulation?

Jan 28, 2010

I'm running Debian (both Sarge and Lenny, on different systems) under Gnome and have a number of thin client workstations that connect to a software application on an AIX server. I'm using gnome-terminal to provide terminal emulation for this software. Unfortunately, the emulation leaves something to be desired, and doesn't catch all of the F keys properly. It seems F1-F4 act as some form of escape key, exiting out of the software back to the command line, when they should be performing different functions in the software. F5 and F6 work as they should in the emulation. Is there a setting I can apply to my gnome-terminal launcher that will make this behave like it I want? The terminal should ideally match the behavior of a Link MC5 terminal (we have some of these old beasts still around, still crunching away), but alas, I don't know how to implement this.

Ubuntu :: Short Key To Command Histroy In Terminal Running Bash?

Jan 20, 2011

In windows command prompt, F8 key can cycle through your previously entered commands i.e say you enter "ping" and then "pushd <dir>". Next when you type p and then press F8 brings pushd and next F8 brings ping command. You can then hit enter to execute the corresponding command i.e ping in this case.Is there anything similar in Ubuntu Terminal running bash? Very handy to get back previously entered commands.

General :: Creating DVDs From Terminal (Ubuntu 8.1)

Aug 20, 2010

Trying to COPY some of my DVDs, I've had tons of problems with the various applications such as K3B and Brasero (not putting them down though, just my experience). Recently I found the commands to use dvdbackup, and it worked perfectly. I can copy my DVDs easily and flawlessly. Really happy about that. Is there a command-line way of creating DVDs? I've got to say that using the terminal has been the most reliable and robust for me. Is there a way to create DVDs via the terminal? I'm running Ubuntu 8.1 on a Dell laptop.

I run a number of distros. I often ssh into the machine. However depending on which distro I am using, the RSA key is different.So what I will do is delete ~/.ssh/known_hosts on the machine I am using and ssh in. what i was wondering is whether using ssh-keygen and creating the same passphrase for the distros would remove this problem?

General :: F3 - F5 Keys Incorrectly Behaving As Audio Keys / Remap Them To Original Meaning?

Apr 17, 2010

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?

General :: Re-mapping Non-standard Keys To Modifier Keys?

Apr 7, 2011

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

Slackware :: Home And End Keys In A Terminal

Apr 22, 2010

I am having trouble using home and end keys in a terminal, to go to the end or beginning of a line. With xterm it will only work with the bash shell, while under zsh nothing is output. With urxvt, mrxvt and aterm pressing the keys in either bash or zsh always just results in a tilde being printed. Is this perhaps because urxvt, aterm and mrxvt are emulating a different terminal type to xterm by default?

Why does xterm work for bash but not for zsh? I don't just want a solution, I want to understand why it doesn't work by default. As a side question, is there any way to press alt+enter within a terminal? I tried to use wicd-curses where you have to use alt+enter to save settings, and it didnt register in any of the terminals, even xterm.

Ubuntu :: Redefine Terminal Keys (not X-server)

May 17, 2010

Im running ubuntu 9.04 remotley via ssh, using putty on a windows computer to control it. I want to redefine one key (I have a swedish keyboard where I have to press AltGr+key to get a tilde sign, would be better if I could get the tilde without AltGr modifier).

I read about xmodmap and xev. Using them I succesfully redefined the key for x-programs. For example if I start firefox over ssh and press the key I get the correct key. But in the terminal session the changes does not take effect. Which is probably logical since xmodmap does only work on the x-server. But how do I redefine the keys for terminal use?

Ubuntu :: [Maverick] Xfce4-terminal Keys Act Weird/wrong?

Oct 16, 2010

Since the upgrade to Xubuntu 10.10, I'm having issues with Xfce4-terminal. When I use aptitude, the home and end keys don't scroll the list to the top or bottom. With vim, it generates input of adding a new line with F or H on it above the current line. Ctrl+arrow left/right also generate unwanted signals/characters.This does not happen with Kubuntu or Ubuntu and when I install Gnome-terminal and use that, everything works as you expect. This even happens on the live environment. I don't want to use gnome-terminal, as it pulls in more packages than I need and the Xfce4-terminal should just work.

Another thing that happens is that when I read a man page or close vim or aptitude, it behaves as if it's in a TTY: the text it just showed stays on screen or it clears the bunch in the current view and puts the prompt at the bottom. It should be that the application just closes and you get the prompt back the way it was before you started to read the man page for example.It is purely a terminal emulator problem. Does anyone have a solution for these issues?

Server :: Gnome Terminal Cursor Keys Produce Garbage?

Jun 17, 2011

Ubuntu 10.04 - Gnome Termainal - BASH pressing cursor keys in certain users produces garbage. For example:

pressing up arrow produces: ^[[A
pressing down arrow produces: ^[[B
pressing right arrow produces: ^[[C
pressing left arrow produces: ^[[D

Naturally, I'd like my bash history instead of this. For root and my main user I have no problems. I have a few system users (who don't have a standard home directory) and this seems to occur with those users. For example, my amandabackups user has a home directory of /var/lib/amanda.

Software :: XFCE Terminal Cannot Bind Shortcut Keys / How To Disable All Shortcuts?

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.

Debian :: Creating Terminal Launched Applications (Shortcuts)

Jun 16, 2011

Just got a problem that I've spent a few days trying to get around. Basically, what I am trying to do is create launchers/shortcuts on my desktop that will
a) Launch a terminal with root or sudo access
b) Launch an application.
For example, an application I might ordinarily use as a super user or root user is 'hping3.'

Basically, I want to be able to click on the launcher, and have it open up a terminal with sudo access and launch the hping3 application. I've tried messing around with the 'create launcher' function, and entering in a command to be launched in a terminal window, but to no avail (e.g. something like "sudo hping3" or "su && hping3"). How to write up a simple script to launch a terminal with su access and launch a given application?
