OpenSUSE :: Map "Present Windows - All Desktops" Action Which Is Invoked By Activating The Top Left Corner Of Active Screens Via A Keyboard Shortcut?

Aug 25, 2010

Is it possible to map the same "Present Windows - All Desktops" action which is invoked by activating the top left corner of active screens via a keyboard shortcut? I basically want to ape OSX and have an expose-like button, the screen edge works fine for now, but I would love a keyboard shortcut also. Is it possible? Also, when I set up a custom keyboard shortcut to run yast, I initially tried using the same command from the KDE menu: /usr/bin/xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2

However, when I use the keyboard shortcut to launch this command, I get problems when trying to use zypper after the initial launch using the keyboard shortcut(from yast GUI or CLI). The error basically states another instance of yast2 already exists. The problem is only with the app/repo management modules though; for instance I can launch yast (using keyboard shortcut or start menu) and access hardware info, sudo users etc, I just can't access software/repo management stuff. Even when I kill the offending PID from the CLI I still get the error and have to restart the box to rectify it proper. So I changed the keyboard shortcut command to : /usr/bin/kdesu /sbin/yast2

and this seems to have resolved the problem. My second question is what is the difference between the two in this particular instance and why does one cause problems (xdg-su) and the other does not (kdesu).

Ubuntu Installation :: Shows Keyboard / Human Icon Then Stops With Cursor In Upper Left Corner?

Jan 12, 2011

What does it mean if you boot from a live CD, the CD spins, a screen appears with the keyboard and human icons at the bottom, then a blank screen appears with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner - and that's it? It just stays that way.

I've tried two different discs, one 10.04 and one 10.10; and two different disc drives.

Ubuntu :: Get Application Logo At Top Left Corner Of Windows?

Sep 17, 2010

When I open any application, instead of getting the application logo at the top left corner of the window, what I get is a button which on clicking drops down to provide me couple of options. I am using Ambiance Theme Can I move those options somewhere else on the top and get back the application logo at its place(which kind of looks smart and helps me differentiate between the applications in open windows faster) I haven't checked it in KDE but I am using Gnome(default with Ubuntu 10.04). And as far as I remember, when I was using KDE with Fedora 11(a month ago), I used to get the logo

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Tablet The Mouse Hits The Top Left Corner & 11.3

Aug 31, 2010

In OpenSuSE11.2 I followed this url to got it to work: Genius MousePen 8x6 It worked like a charm. In OpenSuSe 11.3 the Xorg stuff is different. In /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d there is a wizardpen.conf but when I use the tablet the mouse hits the top left corner. Using the settings from the url above doesn't make it work either.

OpenSUSE Install :: Startup Screen Reduced To Upper Left Corner (11.3)?

Sep 12, 2010

I just installed openSUSE 11.3 on an old NEC Powermate. After rebooting the first time, the green startup screen with the chameleon is reduced to about one third of the screen surface and sticks to the upper left corner of the screen. Graphic card is an old NVidia Geforce FX4000, which I've been using before using NVidia's legacy drivers. I've been running CentOS, Slackware, Debian and Gentoo before, but right now,looking for a more "comfortable" distro that "just works" (or : almost just works). I don't mind having to do a little tweaking.According to /var/log/Xorg.0.log, the 'nouveau' driver is used for this card

This is set up as a split window. Now, whenever I open dolphin, the right hand window is the "active" one. How does one make the left window the active one by default?

Debian Multimedia :: Keyboard Shortcut To Minimize / Iconify Windows

Aug 7, 2009

I would like to create a keyboard shortcut to minimize/iconify an active window. Tried xbindkeys-config but no luck.

Alt+F2 brings up the run command on nearly any desktop environment
Alt+F4 kills the app being active at the time
Win+D will minimize all windows

How can I get Alt+F3 to minimize/iconify a window which is active? Thin can be achieved by Alt+Space+N but it's to long and I would like to change this keybind on Alt+F3 since it is quick.

OpenSUSE :: Keyboard Shortcut Is Working Wrongly

Jan 1, 2011

I use Opensuse 11.3. I had configured my Gnome so that when I press the home hotkey it launches Firefox (the standard web browser). And I configured Firefox so that it starts on my selected home page. Everything worked out right until I installed and trie KDE yesterday. When I went back to Gnome and pressed the home key it launchs Firefox but rather than appearing my home page on it what appears is the content of my home folder. I got so mad at it that I uninstalled everything related to KDE. Deleted .mozilla folder, what reset Firefox. Nothing worked at all! I deleted the folder that stores keyboard shortcuts on Gnome, what reset all shortcuts. But when I redefine the home key or any other key to launch web browser, what the key does is to launch Firefox with the content of my home folder.when I launch Firefox from menu it starts on the home page I selected. When I launch it from any custom hotkey it starts on my home folder.It may seem a little thing but it is so disgusting for me that sometimes I even feel willing to re-install the whole system, and i just didn't so because it took me several days to configure it the way it is.Does anyone know what is happening here and how can I change it?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mute Using Keyboard Shortcut But Not Unmute On Opensuse 11.2?

Mar 11, 2010

I recently installed Opensuse 11.2 on my Acer 3680 laptop. One problem I have notice is that while I can mute my volume control using the keyboard shortcuts, I cannot unmute it using the keyboard short cut. When I press the keyboard shortcut, which is maped to XF86audiomute, it display the popup indicating that the control is unmute, the control is not really unmute. I can unmute it by using the volumen control in the system tray.

I am puzzled, this did not happen under Fedora 12 nor Linux Mint 8 / Ubuntu 9.10. What could be the cause of the issue and what can I do to locate the source of the problem?

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.

Fedora :: 12: Mouse Cursor Trapped In Top Left Corner?

Jan 12, 2010

For some reason the mouse curser starts out in the middle of the screen after booting as normal but as soon as i move it, it gets stuck in the top left corner of the screen.It still responds to clicks and i can sometimes see it "wants" to move but itets repositioned into that corner.he problem exists in the live-cd session as well as in the installed session.I looked into the Xorg.0.log file and it said something along the lines of:Code:HID XXXX:XXXX: failed to initialize for relative axesI suspect this to be the culprit, yet i've never had any problems with the mouse in any other operating system (writing from kubuntu 9.10 right now) and i've used most of the popular ones.Is there anything i can do about it? Seems that X is doing things differently in Fedora... There's got to be some switch or something.

Debian Multimedia :: Desktop Freezing On Left Top Corner Of Jessie

Sep 13, 2015

I've been having a problem with debian lately. It seems that sometimes a rectangular corner on the top left of my screen freezes and shows what was previously there. It goes away when I close all open windows but shows up again if I open multiple applications, especially if I open the terminal and another application. It can become very distracting and makes it impossible to see what is on the top left corner of my screen.

I'm including a screenshot of my desktop.

I am running Debian 8.2 Jessie on an Asus Q400A with 8 GB of RAM. I have an Intel Core i7-3632QM CPU @ 3.2GHz and am using XFCE as my Desktop Environment.

Fedora :: Mouse Cursor Starts In Upper Left Corner In 15?

Aug 20, 2011

I finally got around to installing Fedora 15 on my HTPC. I noticed that the mouse cursor starts in the upper left corner of the screen as soon as the login screen appears. This means that after login, if I only used the keyboard so far, the Gnome Shell overlay starts immediately.This is at most an interesting quirk until I try to set XMBC to automatically launch. Now I have to press <Esc> or move the mouse to de-activate the overlay before I can use the program.Is this mouse cursor thing intended behaviour, is there some software fix, or is it a hardware quirk? I have a Radeon HD 4650 graphics card (Smolt profile).

Ubuntu :: Goes To Black Screen With Underscore In The Upper Left Corner?

Aug 9, 2010

I have a Windows XP Dell laptop that completely froze the other day. I cannot start it up, and cannot even access safe mode -- it just goes to black screen with underscore in the upper left corner.

So, I did some searching and saw a recommendation to create a Ubuntu Live CD to run and access the info on the hard drive, at least. I have most of it backed up, but not the drivers and I know that will be a pain to redo. So, I am mostly hoping at this point to recover a little info off the drive before reinstalling the OS. Of course, if I could just fix it, that would be better...

I get an error message when I try to access the hard drive through Ubuntu that says it is in hibernation mode and I need to start windows and shut it down properly before Ubuntu can mount the drive. Since I can't get into Windows, this is impossible. It also said something about being able to mount it read-only.
