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 :: How To Get (Windows) Keyboard Shortcut

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.

General :: Windows - Keyboard Shortcut Manager - "calls Applications"

Jul 13, 2010

Is there an application in windows wherein you can see and manage the available shortcuts:

Keyboard shortcuts that calls applications
Keyboard shortcuts in applications
Built-in Windows shortcuts

So that you can actually see if you are repeating a keyboard shortcut or not. Because often times I tend to assign similar shortcuts to applications. Anything for windows(freeware), if this is available on linux then please share it.

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).

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Mouse - Left Button Does Not Release Following Drag Operation

Oct 4, 2010

PC: AMD 64 X2 4200
OS: Vista 32 Home premium SP1
VM: VMWare 7.1.2
OS: openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.34-12
Mouse: Logitech M-BZ105A

Hi, I have had a frustrating problem for the past few months where performing a 'left-mouse-button-drag' operation (i.e. holding down on a scroll bar, drawing a line in a graphics application, connecting a wire in Labview) will often fail to acknowledge when the mouse button is released by the user. The OS continues to believe the button is being held down (as far as I can tell). From this point, *sometimes* the mouse button might release if I ctrl+alt+del or right click around the place, but mostly I need to restart openSUSE to fix the issue. This occurs every 10 minutes or so, and after searching for a solution for the past few months, I now write in hope that this is a known issue, and there is a solution. Of course the problem could be with VMWare, but I have also Mandriva, DSL and Puppy Linuz installed, and none show this same problem.

Ubuntu :: Show Desktop Button/shortcut Bug?

Feb 15, 2011

I have been trying to active the shortcut <Super>+D to minimize all active windows and show desktop. Compiz is already install on my system,that I have tried all possible combinations of "show desktop" functionality in Compiz and Gnome itself. However, whenever I use the shortcut, it activates(maximize) one window first, and it shows desktop if I use the shortcut second time. Actually same thing happens when I press the "show desktop" button on the panel as well

Software :: GQView - Change / Edit Mouse Button Shortcut?

Feb 1, 2010

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?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut For Ssh?

May 10, 2010

I recently switched from GNOME to xfce, and I can't get working a simple keyboard shortcut to ssh to another machine.

In GNOME, I made a launcher (which gnome-do found); the first time I ran the launcher I'd get an X11 popup asking for by ssh passphrase, and then it would be saved for the rest of the GNOME session, making logins nice and fast.

In xfce, a similar launcher opens a new xfce4-terminal, which asks for the passphrase every time. I made a keyboard shortcut to "ssh -X me@server" -- this open an X11 popup for the passphrase, but no terminal, because there is no "run in terminal" option for keyboard shortcuts.

I'd be okay with running "ssh-add" at every login, but it has to be system-wide, rather than attached to one terminal instance. Passphraseless ssh is an options but a creepy one.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut Not Responding?

Dec 22, 2010

I am experiencing problems with keyboard shortcuts. It started to happen after I installed gnome shell and switched back to gdk. the most annoying part is that every single keyboard shortcut works except the most used one AKA "run a terminal"

first I thought it had something to do with shortcuts in compiz but no. I changed the keyboard shortcut for "run a terminal" to something wild like CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+N and it still doesn't work. That command is not doing anything... Can i add my custom commands to keyboard shortcuts and how?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Keyboard Shortcut Does Not Work

Ubuntu :: Screenshot & Keyboard Shortcut?

Feb 1, 2011

I frequently need to take screenshots of a game (flash-based, running inside a browser), in particular it's statistics screen which is shown when I hold the TAB key. The problem is, when I take a screenshot, either by pressing PrintScreen key or by pressing a custom-defined shortcut, the game responds to this keypress and hides its statistics screen, so the screenshot doesn't contain the information I need.I figured out how to overcome this using a custom application launcher icon; but this requires using the mouse which is rather inconvenient.define a shortcut that wouldn't be processed by the active application? Or maybe there's some screenshot utility that does this out of the box?

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 :: Conky Disappearing With Keyboard Shortcut

Jan 19, 2011

I have a keyboard shortcut (ALT+M) that I have set to minimize all active windows. Now when I set 'own_window yes' in the conkyrc file, it treats it as a window (what it is supposed to do) but when I use my shortcut it minimizes as well. Now in my docky bar, it does not appear. I have tried setting it to 'own_window no' but then my icons disappear fron my desktop and I have to refresh the desktop every time conky updates (each on sec) this is an absolute nuisance. I have the 'double_buffer yes' option set and that does stop the flickering that I was having but I still cant happily use conky.

Ubuntu :: Wildcards In Keyboard Shortcut Commands

This is to play things as ..... videos etc. in smplayer using vdpau instead of the laggy flashplayer

The wildcard * works in terminals, but not in the command of the shortcut or in the Alt-F2 launcher... Could anyone point me to what I could write instead?

Ubuntu :: Simulate Keypress Via Keyboard Shortcut?

Feb 21, 2011

I have a G15v1. After going through hoops and loops to get it working only to discover that you only needed to install g15daemon through the Ubuntu Software Center, I found myself with one big problem. I migrated from windows just now, and there, I had my macro keys(the extra ones) bound to CTRL+W, CTRL+T and to a simulated mouse-wheel scroll so I could navigate the web more easily. How would I go about doing that? I figured, if I used the System->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts thingy and bound my key, in my case XF86Launch5, to a command similar to "simulate keypress CTRL+W"(I know it's totally wrong, just to give you an idea), I might be able to get it working again. Only problem is, I can't find anything like that. Any of you has any clue about it? I googled but I only find C++/Java/coding related results, which are not exactly what I need to do.

Edit: The directory I want opens when I use its link Can't find anything on the net for this. Most just mention that we can create custom keyboard shortcuts. I tried using /home/directory/directorydesired, but no go.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut Doesn't Work
