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

Jun 5, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Which Allow To Use The Keyboard Shortcuts To Make A Shortcut?

Apr 8, 2010

First off, I have been quite clumsy lately. I recently poured water into my computer by accident; and it works somewhat fine, though the keys A and E do not work. At this point I am using an external keyboard, but since it's a laptop and I am using it at school, that is not what one would wish for. So, my question is; is there any way which will allow me to use the Keyboard Shortcuts to make a shortcut which will for example use ALT+Ctrl+<button> to write the letter A?

My second question is; Do anyone know what has happened with what I will describe in the following text; or perhaps recognice the problem and a solution? One of my friends has installed XUbuntu on his netbook. It has been running just fine; and for a while after he upgraded to 9.10, his computer went somewhat broke. It boots up fine, and it loads the login screen; but instead of being able to log in, it switches to a terminal. We have tried using it to log in, but as none of us are any good with the terminal we have not succeeded.

Ubuntu :: Shortcuts - Impossible To Remove A Shortcut?

Oct 12, 2010

I am setting up my shortcuts on Ubuntu (System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts) and there is no way to remove a shortcut. On the bottom of the screen says "(...) or press space to clear.", however, it doesn't work.The only way I found to remove a shortcut was to set up another shortcut with its keys, so it will be disabled.

Slackware :: Xfce Keyboard Shortcuts - Not Set Up At Login With 13.1

Jul 5, 2010

Starting with Slackware 13.1, I am having trouble with keyboard application shortcuts in Xfce. Most of the time, they are not set up at login, for example Alt+F2 for Run prompt, and some custom ones. The fix each time is to kill the xfce4-settings-helper process, which somehow automatically restarts, and the keyboard shortcuts all work after that. But this is annoying.

Has anyone else seen this? I found this bug report which seems to match this problem. But there is no fix, and the bug report goes back to Aug 2009. [url]

I'm pretty sure Slackware 13.0 has the exact same version Xfce-4.6.1 but I never saw this problem under 13.0.

Slackware :: XFCE Keyboard Shortcuts Stop Working

May 22, 2010

I'm running XFCE on slackware64-current. I've had this problem for a number of months now. Every so often, XFCE will decide to not recognize key combinations that are mapped to keyboard shortcuts. For example, hitting ALT+F2 will not bring up the xfrun4 dialog box. This happens to all of my keyboard shortcuts (e.g., volume keys).

For now, I've resorted to going into the keyboard shortcut settings and double-clicking on each assignment and then hitting ok. This seems to correct whatever corruption is occurring. What's even more unusual is that all of the settings appear to be intact in the settings box and even in the .xml file.

Ubuntu :: Function Keys & Keyboard Shortcuts Stopped Working?

May 17, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10. All of a sudden several of my function keys stopped working and several keyboard shortcuts that I had setup involving function keys stopped working as well.

For example, when I go to preferences->keyboard shortcuts and try to set "Toggle fullscreen mode" to Alt+F11, the text "XF86AudioRaiseVolume" appears where it should just say "Alt+F11". Pressing Alt+F11 does nothing.

All of my function keys somehow got mapped to XF86AudioBlahBlah and no longer work. How do I undo this? I recently installed ffmpeg and gtk-recordmydesktop but I don't think I installed anything else.

Ubuntu / Apple :: CPU Temp Monitor And Keyboard Shortcuts - Set A Shortcut To Empty The Trash?

May 5, 2010

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 alongside OSX on my unibody aluminum macbook. I've been setting it up, but I was wondering if there were any applets that could display things like CPU temps (maybe even RAM usage? I'm thinking along the lines of the iStat menubar app, but of course I'm willing to try out anything). I tried searching the Software Center, but couldn't quite find what I was looking for. I was exploring the keyboard shortcuts, and I was wondering if there was a way to set a shortcut to empty the trash? Like in OSX they have shift+apple+delete.

Ubuntu :: Bind Keys Universally For All Applications?

Aug 8, 2010

I'm wondering if it's possible like in OS X, to have the some of the emacs and terminal keys binded to all applications.

e.g. In the google search bar, having M-f to move forward over a word, etc. I'm most interested in M-b, M-f, C-a,C-e.

Is this kind of setup made in the kernel?

General :: Change Shortcut Keys In Thunderbird 3?

Apr 20, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Keys Won't Bind When Running Fluxbox On Xubuntu

Feb 27, 2011

i'm running fluxbox on my xubuntu 10.10. I'm just trying to set up the key file and the keys i enter will randomly not bind. Like for example:

# open a terminal
Mod1 F1 :Exec x-terminal-emulator
# open a dialog to run programs
Mod1 F2 :Exec fbrun
# filhanterare
Mod1 F3 :Exec thunar
# textredigerare
Mod1 F4 :Exec notepad

terminal, fbrun and notepad works fine but not thunar. i've tried a million different combos of keys and modifiers and it seems totally random weather it works or not. sometimes what works one minute don't after next reconfigure.

When i run the original keys-file i get this log output:

Keys: Invalid key/modifier on line 66):

I get similar outputs when i change the keys-file for other numbers too but it doesn't seem to happen for every key that doesn't work.

General :: Bind Certain Keys To Change Screen Brightness

Jul 19, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Use GNOME Panel Icons With Keyboard (shortcuts, Accessibility, Navigate, Keys)?

May 26, 2011

Surviving without mouse or touchpad I have been looking for this without initial success: only 2 oldie questions like the one I was going to place:
[URL]... But I found it!!: [URL]...

So the key keyboard shortcut is:

With it you change the focus from the desktop to the panel, and vice versa When the focus in in the panel you can move from icon to icon with TAB (to the right) or SHIFT+TAB (to the left). Then Enter key (sometimes F10 instead) makes the same as left-clicking with the mouse, and SHIFT+F10 makes the same as right-clicking with the mouse. ESC key (sometimes Enter instead) takes the menus out.

There is something about this in: [URL]...

Software :: Change Bash Shortcut Keys Such As Ctrl-C?

Jul 5, 2010

I*am using Kubuntu 10.04. I would like to change some of the standard shortcut keys for bash (terminal).

I want:

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?

Fedora :: Removed Pulseaudio - Now Desktop Shortcut Keys Don't Work

Jul 31, 2009

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:

rpm -e --nodeps alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.18-3.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-bluetooth-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-utils-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-gconf-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 xine-lib-pulseaudio- pulseaudio-libs-glib2-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 pulseaudio-module-x11-0.9.15-14.fc11.i586 gnome-bluetooth-2.27.5-1.fc11.i586 bluez-4.37-2.fc11.i586

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Keyboard>Mouse Shortcuts

Nov 12, 2010

I've been playing WoW on my Ubuntu installation, but I'm having a bit of a trouble using certain keybinds. When holding down alt and pressing one of the mouse buttons, a shortcut button of some form is enabled and negates the keybind; ie: Alt + Right mouse button shows a grabbing hand, Alt + Middle Mouse button shows a diagonal arrow in a corner, and Alt + Left mouse button shows the context menu.

Surely this is something simple I've missed, but I didn't see anywhere to disable these in either keyboard shortcuts or keyboard / mouse options.

Ubuntu :: Temporarily Disable Shortcuts On The Desktop ?

Dec 14, 2010

I'm currently trying to learn how to get around Blender, but I keep running into the same problem. Blender relies heavily on shortcuts and keystrokes to navigate it's GUI, but very often they clash with the shortcuts on my desktop. The result is that the desktop shortcut wins, making Blender impossible to use effectively.

Is there any way to disable the desktop shortcuts temporarily while using the software, and then setting them back when I'm done?

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Applications Recognize Gnome Shortcuts For Multimedia Keys?

Jan 8, 2011

Recently I installed MPlayer with its default gui and its interfaces SMPlayer and GnomeMPlayer. When I'm using GnomeMPlayer it responds to multimedia keys as configured in Gnome shortcuts, even if it's minimized or running in another virtual desktop. But it doesn't happen to the other two gui's mentioned above. I have also noticed that native Gnome applications or with Gnome support like Banshee and Rhythmbox rspond to multimedia keys even when the gui is closed and they are running only in the system tray. But it never occurs in non-Gnome applications like VLC, MPlayer and others. Jetaudio wich responds to these keys in MS Windows running under Wine doesn't even recognize them.

So I came to the conclusion that only native Gnome applications or with Gnome support recognize multimedia keys because, as it seems, they receive the signal from Gnome configurations. Others applications doesn't do so. Here is my question: Is there some way to make all applications recognize the configuration of Gnome multimedia keys shortcuts? (Of course it would not be fine if they recognized ALL Gnome shortcuts because they could conflict with shortcuts from another applications. The idela would be that they recognize ONLY Gnome multimedia shortcuts.)
