Ubuntu :: How To Change Shortcut Keys Used In Terminal

Jul 5, 2010

I want to reassign ctrl-shift-C and ctrl-shift-V. How is that done? (I'm using a Mac keyboard and I'd like to take advantage of the command key to avoid having to hit two modifiers.)

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?

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.

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 :: Cannot Start Terminal From Keyboard Shortcut (11.01 Unity)

May 22, 2011

I've recently upgraded a laptop of mine from 10.10 to 11.04 (Natty), and am having a few issues with it. I don't know how many of these are related to using Unity and how many are just due to the upgrade, but one of the main bugbears is keyboard shortcuts. I have always set the F12 key so that it opens a terminal window. I did this through the settings > Keyboard Shortcuts interface, but although I can (apparently) set this in Unity, it doesn't work. The setting is there, listed, but pressing F12 doesn't open a terminal. Neither does it if I set it to any other key.

I can create a new entry, to start xterm with F12, which works fine but this isn't quite the same as a terminal (it appears different on screen.) I also discover that CTRL+ALT+T doesn't open a terminal window either (as is suggested in a very useful list here: [URL] Have I missed something? Or am I being thick? (Quite possible ... )

Fedora :: Get Shortcut For Root Terminal?

Aug 10, 2009

how to get a shortcut for opening a terminal as root? I mean something I could put in my gnome panel and then just click and get a dialog asking for the root password. Or maybe just open the terminal and automatically do "su -" (maybe this is easier actually). In Debian/Ubuntu this can be achieved doing "gksu gnome-terminal". In F10 I got it done using beesu, but it doesn't work anymore in F11:

Code: $ beesu gnome-terminal
(beesu:17788): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_x11_atom_to_xatom_for_display: assertion `atom != GDK_NONE' failed
(beesu:17788): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_x11_atom_to_xatom_for_display: assertion `atom != GDK_NONE' failed
Failed to contact the GConf daemon; exiting.

Ubuntu :: Redefine Terminal Keys (not X-server)

May 17, 2010

Im running ubuntu 9.04 remotley via ssh, using putty on a windows computer to control it. I want to redefine one key (I have a swedish keyboard where I have to press AltGr+key to get a tilde sign, would be better if I could get the tilde without AltGr modifier).

I read about xmodmap and xev. Using them I succesfully redefined the key for x-programs. For example if I start firefox over ssh and press the key I get the correct key. But in the terminal session the changes does not take effect. Which is probably logical since xmodmap does only work on the x-server. But how do I redefine the keys for terminal use?

Fedora :: Keyboard Shortcut Script In Terminal

I am trying to start a script via a keyboard shortcut.The trouble is, it runs fine when i start it from the terminal, either by opening a terminal and starting it there or by "double-click", but when I use the shortcut it loads, but doesn't work properly. This is probably because it asks for user input, which would be put in the terminal window.Is there a way to start a script in a terminal window by default?

Slackware :: Home And End Keys In A Terminal

Apr 22, 2010

I am having trouble using home and end keys in a terminal, to go to the end or beginning of a line. With xterm it will only work with the bash shell, while under zsh nothing is output. With urxvt, mrxvt and aterm pressing the keys in either bash or zsh always just results in a tilde being printed. Is this perhaps because urxvt, aterm and mrxvt are emulating a different terminal type to xterm by default?

Why does xterm work for bash but not for zsh? I don't just want a solution, I want to understand why it doesn't work by default. As a side question, is there any way to press alt+enter within a terminal? I tried to use wicd-curses where you have to use alt+enter to save settings, and it didnt register in any of the terminals, even xterm.
