General :: Emulate Mouse Behavior On Windows/Mac?

Feb 19, 2011

I predominantly use Ubuntu at home, which means I am used to "highlight 'copies' and center click 'pastes'" (I believe this is true for all X-windows-sever machines, but I don't know). Unfortunately, that is not the behavior on the machines I use at work (I have a Mac and Win 7.). Is there an application which would let me imitate this mouse behavior for either of those OS's?

Ubuntu :: Emulate Win + Left And Win + Right Windows 7 Behavior

Oct 11, 2010

These are 2 cool shortcuts in Windows 7:

[Windows+Left] - Dock window to the left side
[Windows+Right] - Dock window to the right side

When you press Windows + left arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen (on the left), and when you press Windows + right arrow the active window occupies 50% of the screen on the right. I have tried to set this up with gnome on Ubuntu but have't managed it so far. I am sure this can be setup in gnome. How can it be done? In summary this splits two windows on the screen so one window occupies 50% of screen on left and the other on the right, how can this be setup and executed pronto on ubuntu?

General :: Using Keyboard To Emulate Left And Right Mouse Buttons

Oct 15, 2010

I am running Linux Ubuntu on a Dell Inspiron laptop that I bought at a garage sale for 50 cents. After spending quite a few hours resurrecting it, it works just fine except for the left and right mouse buttons on the touch pad. They do not function.Is there a way to emulate the left and right mouse buttons from the keyboard?(I know that I can just plug in a mouse, but I would rather just use the keyboard if possible.)

Ubuntu :: Emulate Right-mouse-click With Hardware Button?

Jul 25, 2010

I would like to assign right-mouse-click behaviour to a hardware button. I can associate a keypress, or a combination of keypresses with an "xdotool click 3" command via the Gnome keyboard shortcuts.

I have the scancode of the hardware button so can use

setkeycodes scancode keycode

to mimic any key of my keyboard. However, I don't want the hardware button to mimic a single key of my keyboard that is already in use, since then the keyboard key will also activate xdotool.

So I think I need:

- either a way to associate that particular scancode with an (outlandish) keypress combo rather than a single keypress;

- or a keycode which is not currently in use, to bind to the scancode. Are there any like that and how would I find out? In the Gnome Keyboard Shortcuts list there is stuff like "XF86AudioMedia" which I'm not using -- but does that correspond to a numerical keycode value which setkeycodes understands?

Slackware :: Mouse Behavior In KDE4 Konqueror

May 27, 2010

I installed 13.1 last night and started playing with KDE4.4.3. I'm talking about Konqueror as a file manager only here. My default view is to have the folder tree in the left pane, with a detailed view pane on the right. In KDE3, I use the "Tree List View".In KDE3, I had my mouse set to "double-click to open files and folders". However, in KDE3's konqueror, you could still navigate the folder tree with a single click. One click on a folder in the left pane would show the folder's contents in the right pane, or a double click in the left pane would expand the tree to show subdirectories. I could still single-click on files in the right pane to highlight them without opening them.

In KDE4's konqueror, it requires a double-click to do anything with the folders, either to display in the right pane or expand the tree. It's a lot more effort just to get around in the folder tree. I found the Mouse setting in the System Settings that changes overall single-click/double-click behavior. If it's on single-click, it's easier to navigate the folder tree but then I end up opening files I don't want to just by trying to highlight them with a click.I dug through Konqueror's settings in both KDE3 and KDE4 but couldn't find what gave me behavior I liked in KDE3 or how to duplicate it in KDE4. In KDE3, the system setting is on double-click, but there doesn't seem to be a konqueror-specific mouse setting to customize it. Anyone else notice this? Is this hard-coded into konqueror, and it changed from 3 to 4?

General :: Gnome - US International Keyboard Layout That Mimics Windows' Behavior?

Jun 19, 2010

I am used to using US International as my keyboard layout. However, the implementation appears to differ greatly between Windows and Linux (Gnome, in my case - may well be a GTK issue since GTK behaves the same on Windows).The layout uses dead keys, for example for keys such as ', ", ^, &c. allowing easy entry of characters with diacritics. On Windows pressing a dead key and then a key that has no pair associated results in the dead key's character (when paired with space) and the character from the second key. Example: Pressing ", a yields "ä", however, pressings yields "'s", as there is no pairing for ' and s.

Now, there is a language called English which makes frequent use of exactly those two characters and since it works on Windows to just type them as usual it's muscle memory for me now. Which brings me to my problem:On Linux (and GTK on Windows), there is a pairing for ' and s (among many others), resulting in ś (which, in turn, leads to me frequently typing "itś"). So typing "it's" requires me to type ', , s at the end.There are a few other combinations I'm used to that don't work. Among those is that for non-existant pairs simply nothing is the result. Typing "I'd" results in "I". Hitting one of those keys twice results in a non-spacing diacritic which breaks my habit of typing strings by first typing both quotation marks (which now result in a non-spacing acute accent or macron).

Long story short: None of the supplied US International layouts appears to function the same as in Windows - are there any that do work identically? Or any chance to configure it that way? While it may be nice to type an s with acute accent or non-spacing diacritics, those aren't exactly common needs for me.

Ubuntu :: Emulate Windows 7 Edge Actions?

May 3, 2010

I would really like to configure compiz to emulate the Windows 7 edge actions. In case you haven't used Windows 7, the actions I'm interested in are: Drag window to top of the screen - maximize Drag window to left side of screen - take up the left half of the screen Drag window to right side of screen - take up the right half of the screen

Those are really the only ones I care about. I know I used to be able to do this in Karmic, but I forgot to back up my compiz settings when installing Lucid, and I can't remember how I had it configured before.

Ubuntu :: Emulate Windows Version Of Skype?

I guess i can use virtual box and have skype in that but, wouldn't it be really slow to start skype then? (First start windows from virtualbox then start skype?

General :: Netem For Mac OS X To Emulate Network Latency And Dropped Packets?

Aug 9, 2010

I'm looking for an open source/free network emulator tool that I could use on Mac OS X, to simulate a slow network connection, limited bandwidth and other network characteristics such as dropped packets etc for both UDP/TCP connections (or even on the physical layer).

I'm looking for the simplest solution that would allow me to run TCP/UDP servers and have a few clients connect to them on localhost emulating various network connections. I'm mainly wondering if I can use something like Linux's netem on Mac OS X (or even better cross-platform Windows/Linux/Mac). Perhaps I can run VirtualBox and a Linux kernel running netem, has anyone had luck with that?[URL]...

General :: Is Mouse Wheel Behaviour Of Mac OS X Or Linux Possible In Windows?

May 10, 2011

In Linux or Mac OS X, every window I hover over registers mouse wheel events without being the focused window. For instance I can have two windows open at the same time and scroll in each one of them without clicking either of them first.Can this behaviour somehow be translated to Windows? Is there a tool or a hidden preference that I can set?

General :: Compiz Stops Updating Windows On A Multi-head System - Keyboard And Mouse Still Alive?

Dec 8, 2010

I am running Fedora F14 on an Intel I3 cpu w/4Gb memory and plenty of disk. I have two displays connected to the Gigabyte Motherboard, one of the HDMI connector, and one on a DVI connector. I run Gnome. When Compiz is enabled things work fine for a while, meaning hours or days. Then the displays will "freeze" to the point where the clock stops updating. The system itself is still running programs, services, and the mouse and keyboard work. The mouse cursor will move around, but nothing can be clicked upon. If a terminal was the open window, typing on the keyboard does not do anything, nor does ctrl-backspace or whatever it is to terminate X windows. The keyboard does allow me to press ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to one of the base consoles. Once there I can type to my hearts content. I can kill off my logged in Gnome session through the console, and I can shutdown the system in a controlled manner.

It is as if all of the windows stop updating. For example, I play music through Amarok. An hour after I stop using the system but letting the music play the screens will do their lockup. The clock will stop, and Amarok will stop updating which song it is playing. It continues to play each song in the playlist, but the Amarok window shows what was playing at the time that the clock stopped. I've also had this happen to me while using Yumex, where it would stop updating the screen while installing programs, but the programs do get installed. With Compiz off I don't have this problem.

The version of Compiz I am using is currently 0.8.6-3. It is running on Gnome 2.32.0-2, with a Linux kernel of It has happened with earlier versions of these programs. I am using the graphics processing the Intel i3 chip to the motherboard connectors. The freeze generally happens at some random time while I am not actively using the system. It has happened to me while doing simple things like programming through an IDE. The really strange thing to me is that the cursor will move around on the screen after everything else stops updating.

General :: /etc/rc.local Behavior Different In Ubuntu Vs. Debian?

Apr 26, 2011

A rather obscure problem, clearly our understanding here is challenged! On ubuntu (10.04 & earlier) we boot our apps under a user account from /etc/rc.local which runs under root. First the boot script installs drivers and does rooty things, then we launch the executable under the "myaccount" account:

su myaccount -c startPrg.bash (Inside is the actual /mybin/myprg &; )and the program is left running (our goal of course) BUT in debian (lenny) the exit from su terminates its child, which also seems right.

Now confused..

1) How can we spin off a child from /etc/rc.local that executes under a user account, but is not terminated when the su exits?

2) Why does the script act differently on ubuntu vs. debian?

General :: Fork Behavior While Copying File Descriptors

Jun 17, 2010

I am quite confused about the following description on fork. Could you please explain it ?The child process shall have its own copy of the parent's file descriptors. Each of the child's file descriptors shall refer to the same open file description with the corresponding file descriptor of the parent.For example, I am opening a socket and then fork. Now, does the child have a separate socket or is shares it with the parent. Does I have any impact on using it in child?

General :: Change System Console Screen Blanking Behavior?

Jun 14, 2010

How do I change the screen blanking behavior on Linux virtual terminals?

For example, if I switch to a VT from X, login, and leave the system alone for 5 minutes or so, the screen will blank like a screensaver. It comes back with any keypress, like a screensaver.

Mostly I just want to change the timeout, but I'm also interested in other settings.

If it helps, one of my systems is running Ubuntu 10.04 with the stock graphics drivers. fbset shows the console using the radeondrmfb framebuffer device.

Software :: Emulate Commands From Xterm To Vt100 Over Ssh?

Feb 2, 2011

We are using a program who connect to other server using xterm over telnet. Our programmer needs to migrate t vt100 over ssh (why... I don't know cleary, but we prefer ssh because is more secure).But we have problems with some keys. If we press F8 program use another convination of keys and we can't find the way to modificate it.

Actually we are using something like that:

PageDown: (byte)0x1B, (byte)0x5B, (byte)0x36, (byte)0x7E

Ubuntu Servers :: Configuring Samba Permissions To Emulate Netware?

Apr 22, 2010

I'm replacing an ancient Netware server with a new Ubuntu 8.04 box running samba and LDAP. I want to see if there's a way to get Samba to emulate the way permissions propagate through Netware. Namely, if I see a directory structure like this:

[User Cant See]
--- [User Cant See]
------- User Can Edit.txt
------- User CANT Edit.txt

With Netware I can give permission to User to edit "User Can Edit.txt" and the permissions will propagate in reverse to allow User to see the two [User Cant See] directories and edit the text file. "User CANT Edit.txt" will still be invisible to User. This is very convenient as I can simply give user access to one file, they can navigate to it through the directory structure, and all files not explicitly given access to will still be invisible.

With Samba the only way I've been seeing to get this would be to explicitly give User access to both [User Cant See] directories, give him access to the "User Can Edit.txt" and remove any access to "User CANT Edit.txt" and every other file in the latter two nested directories.
