Ubuntu :: Tomboy Global Hotkeys Not Working In 10.10?
Oct 27, 2010
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 (all the way from 8.04) and I can't seem to get Tomboys global hotkey bindings to work. In addition to Tomboys own settings, I have been messing with gconf-editor, but had no success there either. All I need is Alt+F11 combination to open the default note and I have no idea where to go next
I have two major issues, and one minor one, after I started using Ubuntu, I tried searching the forum for them, but couldn't find anything relevant to my problems.First issue: Screenshots and the cursor.This is probably a very easily fixed issue, but none-the-less, I can not figure it out.How do I NOT include the cursor in my screenshots on Ubuntu 9.10?What I do is, I press the Prt Scrn button, and my cursor is always there in the image, and I don't want that.Second is pidgin.I love it, but every time I boot it up, my friendly name is reverted back to firefoxfag.I think it has something to do with me using gmail for msn, but I'm not sure...Also, as a last very small issue, the global hotkeys on audacious don't respond unless i open preferences, open settings for global hotkeys, then close down the settings..
Using KDE 4.6+, I'd like to have a predefined set of hotkeys for all users of the computer. E.g. the "XF86Calculator"-key starting "kcalc" as a default for all users without everyone being forced to deal with the absolutely messy and un-intuitive KDE hotkey configuration. Is there a way to do that? Preferably something like an "*.desktop"-file in /usr/local in order to be consistent with the rest of the system.
For awhile now, I've been trying to set two global hotkeys to control my volume level in Banshee. Before anyone comes in here and says to use the Volume Up/Volume Down keybinds in gnome-keybinding-properties, that does not work. That controls the master volume. I'm looking for a global hotkeys that control JUST the application volume.I've been playing around now, and I think I might have found a way. Since 9.10, Pulseaudio is integrated and the default sound manager. It also allows controlling the application volume level. While changing the volume would be through Pulseaudio and not in the specific application, this would work.
My question is if there's a way to set a keybind to control a specific application's volume within Pulseaudio? Or even a way to set a keybind to the event that happens when a specific application's volume is turned up or down within Pulseaudio.
I don't remember changing any settings but i've noticed lately things like ctrl+P and ctrl+C and alt+tab just don't work, at all.... it's rather annoying actually... is there any way to re-enable hotkeys?
I have a Logitech g15 keyboard and I cant configure my multimedia keys to work with exaile. I tried the xKeys plugin for exaile but it doesn't work. I even tried setting up this commands in UbuntuTweak but it is not working. While Exaile is running, it can also be controlled via command line arguments. These can be assigned to a keyboard shortcut in your window manager or desktop environment.
exaile -n Play next track exaile -p Play previous track exaile -s Stop playback exaile -a Play currently selected or queued song exaile -t Pause or resume playback
i first noticed it while running VLC when at least one of my keyboard hotkeys stopped working. I tried reassigning the key and then reinstalling the packages from SPM and it failed (using kow's ppa) then i did a clean uninstall and reinstall from A/R programs, which didnt fix anything. then later i had problems typing in firefox, specifically with the number pad (the hotkey i'm referring to is also part of the number pad) something makes me think it's my keyboard or keyboard driver, i've been keeping up with the updates for Jaunty, including the most recent kernel update.
I installed the Gnome global menu bar URL... for my Ubuntu 9.10 laptop. All that was there was the files that I had to make and make install. But this happens when I type make or make installNo targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.Is there a prebuild version of the gnome global menu bar on the Ubuntu Software Center, or can someone provide the link?
This has been happening for a while and I can't figure out how to fix it. If I'm surfing the web listening to music, when I type something -- the song will start changing. Has anyone else run into this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it
I'm using Gnome on 10.10 and use hotkeys (shortcut keys) for opening just about everything. When I go to System>Administration>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts and enter a shortcut to open Nautilus (file manager) it doesn't work.
The shortcut key I have set for this (Mod4-m or Windows key+m) works fine if I replace 'nautilus' with 'thunar' or 'pcmanfm' as the command, but when I use 'nautilus', nothing. The same shortcut key works fine to open Nautilus in Xfce. If I type 'nautilus' in a terminal in Gnome up she pops. I can stick just about any other command in there and WinKey+M will work fine.
My regular setup is with Xfce where everything is dandy but I am fairly curious as to what Gnome has against Nautilus in the shortcut key menu.
I have a USB trendnet TK-209 KVM switch. It switches between all the machines I've tried it with when the NumLock-NumLock hotkey sequence is pressed.t's worked successfully on:Windows XPWindows 7OpenSUSEDebianHowever, it's not switching on my Slackware box while I'm in KDE. If I log out of X, it does work though. It seems like KDE isterfering with the key sequence.
i have recently installed arch linux with just openbox and tint2. i have heard that openbox is a light desktop enviroment but at boot it uses about 300 mb of ram and it seems alot to me.i am also trying to get alt+F2 hotkeys to open gmrun so i added this to the openbox config file:
<!-- Keybindings for running applications --> <keybind key="C-F2"> <action name="Execute">
The usual apologies if this is already dealt with somewhere.I want to use the global hotkeys to banshee when the screen is locked. Possible?(And on a side note, how do I bind the key combo "ctrl+shift+<" ? I get ctrl + shift + >, which it then doesn't react to)
I've seen a couple of unsolved topics on this while researching, but they're all old and I'm hoping somebody's found a solution by now.My laptop has the following keys that I want to assign as global hotkeys to VLC Media Player so that I can use them for... well, for their intended purpose:
I use Persian language on my system and I really need two things:1. To define a custom layout for my keyboard. I am used to a layout that is not available in Ubuntu. Can I do that? (For example I need the system to enter a ****پ character instead of when I hit the backslash key)2. Defining a custom hotkey. I used a hotkey program in windows so I could enter no-space breaks with shift+space. Can I define that in Ubuntu
I recently installed openSuSE 11.3 on a Toshiba Satellite Pro C650 in dualboot with Windows 7. The computer itself has a bunch of hotkeys already set up. It is a combination of the 'Fn' key with 'F1', 'F2', etc. For example, to blank my screen Ihit 'Fn+Fi', etc. All these combinations work fine under Windows 7 yet in Linux environment are completely inactive.
switching to Fluxbox. I've already discoveded how to configure menus and hotkeys but still not sure about appearance configuration. In the Fluxbox menu I chose nice-looking style and want to customize it - background color, font, font color, size of the panel (I want it widescreen and make it bigger in height), color of this panel, amount of desktops (2 instead of 4), etc... Where do I customize all this?
I am attempting to use tomboy and it does not launch giving me the following: Code: ~$ tomboy
(/usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe:3602): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times (/usr/lib/tomboy/Tomboy.exe:3602): GLib-WARNING **: g_set_prgname() called multiple times [INFO]: Initializing Mono.Addins
installing all the packages again without comment or error, but the problem persists with exactly the same error as above.
I've been using debian for well over a year, previously with the gnome desktop. I never really liked how much memory and CPU it used, but many things like the hotkeys worked out of the box, and it was relatively easy to configure. After upgrading to Jessie I decided I'd give LXDE a go given it was lightweight and seemed more complete than e17.
However, after over a day struggling to get everything to work just right, I am still unable to use use my hotkeys (volume control, brightness control, etc.). The volume can be controlled through the GUI, but the brightness seems to have no control whatsoever. In any event, I installed the drivers and firmware for the hardware and used the instructions in the link to try and configure the key bindings, but nothing has worked: [URL] ....
:Questions#Change_hotkeys I'm not sure what to do now.
I've bought a Avocent SwitchView MM1 KVM switch, og and connected my two Ubuntu boxes to it. Toggling the keyboard and mouse between them work only when pressing the buttons on the kvm switch itself, but not when using the hotkey combination ("Scr Lk" x 2, then key 1 or 2). Does anyone knows how to debug this
