1) Go to the above website using Firefox browser. Wait for "Done".2) Type the letters 'J', 'u', 's', 't', and ' ' in sequence.On my system (Fedora 13/32bit) the window scrolls several lines immediately after I key in the space character, just as if I had clicked on the gray area in the scroll bar.Why?I've had a similar thing happen several times (over the years) while writing replies in Yahoo mail but don't know what the key sequence was.he result, however, is that the Firefox browser window closes and I lose everything I've written.Shouldn't control keys HAVE to be pressed to initiate keyboard shortcuts?
I have a problem with my keyboard shortcuts. I go to System/preferences/keyboard shortcuts and then enable my "Open Terminal" command for ctrl+alt+t . Then it works. But whenever I restart, it never saves, and I have to do the whole process over again.
Does anyone know how to make custom keyboard shortcuts? The commands don't seem to cross over to the system>preferences>keyboard shortcuts utility. For example, I added the file browser to my desktop. I right click, select properties, and the command is:
However, when I add a custom shortcut with that same command it doesn't work.

I have a Acer keyboard (manufacter Lite-On) and seems like I can't get the keyboard shortcuts to work. The shortcuts that DO work are search, CD play/pause/tracks, and Volume.but.. shortcuts for Web browser, email and mute vol don't work. Tried to unplug-plug the keyboard (usb) used System>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts disable then Enable still no-go This only happens in /home but when I login /root every shortcut works!Anybody know a posible solution/cause??I am using Fedora 11.
It is possible to set a keyboard shortcut to start an application in KDE? As example, win+f to start firefox. I know it is an option in menu editor, but it doesn't work. From the many distros I tried with KDE ( openSUSE, Arch, Gentoo, Mandriva ), only in Fedora 12 worked this option, and I hoped it will in F13 too, this is one of the reasons I installed Fedora. So it is a bug, regression, or I am doing things not the right way?
I just installed F11 on my new laptop (Acer Timeline 3810T) and I have the following issue when adjusting volume. The keyboard shortcuts work, but they don't raise/lower the volume smoothly, instead they do it in 4 or 5 increments total. What's weird is that the notification that appears in the screen when I adjust the volume (the whitish square with a picture of a speaker, I think it's part of Compiz) shows the the volume changing in small increments, but when I get to the 3rd or 4th little increment from the right the volume is already muted. If I look at the alsa volume controls at the same time, I see it changing by the 4 or 5 big increments.
how can I change the language of the action labels shown in the Keyboard Shortcuts window? System language is set to English (United States), but the mentioned descriptions are displayed in Italian language.
I have been experiencing some problems with the Keyboard shortcuts in GNOME (Fedora 10 x86_64).The thing is that SOMETIMES it would seem the daemon (or necessary program) to make the keyboard shortcuts work is not loaded when I log in. What happens is that I realize the shortcuts are not working (volume, mute), but AFTER I get in the "Keyboard Shortcuts" window (System -> Preferences -> Personal) something else seems to load in the background (the desktop panels reload themselves) and then the shortcuts work again.To me it seems that some program has to be added to the "Sessions" list of start up programs, so GNOME does not forget to load it from time to time, but I don't know which one.
Already using ubuntu gnome quite a while , and moving to KDE based open suse.. I am confused about the keyboard shortcut , I use ctrl f4 a lot to close tabs in my browser .. but in KDE .. It's the shortcut to change the forth Desktop ..

And one more things .. About the touchpad , can i make it dissapear on inactive when i am typing , i've already checked the touchpad in system settings but there is no such option ? Can i do something to change this ?
I don't think I could be much newer to Ubuntu (I only started using it properly an hour ago) and I'm having trouble with the keyboard shortcuts. Nothing happens when I press alt-f2 to run terminal, or ctrl-alt-tab to switch workspaces. I also cannot use the fn keys to dim the screen, change the volume etc
After using KDE 3.5 for years, I defected to Gnome when KDE 4.0 came out. I have recently installed Kubuntu Maverick on my netbook and have decided that I now like KDE again The one bit of functionality that I am missing is the keyboard short cuts of Gnome-Do. So if I type Windows key Em, return and Emacs launches.
The search box in Kubuntu sort of does this. However, I have to click in the box and when I have typed the first few characters I have to click on the icon with the mouse. Is there any way I can do this just using the keyboard and not the mouse? I have searched the help and Googled without much success.
I switched to Ubuntu a few months ago. The only thing I miss from Windows 7 were their new keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between a monitor or multiple monitor. This allowed you to take one large monitor and easily use it as two by pushing certain windows to one half of the screen or another via the keyboard.The keyboard shortcuts:
I'm new to vim and gvim, but I feel its power so I want to learn it. I've been searching very long how to use gvim keyboard shortcuts but I simply cannot find out what is for example the vertical splitting command '^Wv'? I've tried (ctrl/super+ a lot of things) (and other combinations, but without success).
I am trying to find out where in the system are the files that store information on the following: 1. keyboard shortcuts, and 2. which applications and which windows were open before the session ended. Regarding (2): I really like the fact that when I log back in, OpenSuse pops up all the windows that I had open before I last logged out. I know that this information must be stored somewhere. And most probably in my home folder. But I can't seem to find it in ~/.kde or ~/.kde4 Regarding (1): Again, I really like the Mac-OS style behavior that one gets with Ctrl+F9/F10. But sometimes I invoke it inadvertently when - as far as I can remember - my fingers were on the trackpad only. I have not been able to figure out how I do it. But I would like to be able to do it consciously - without pressing Ctrl+F9/F10. Does anyone know what could be happening. i have an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop with an otherwise annoyingly sensitive track pad.
Is it possible to do the following in Ubuntu? If so can someone point me in the right direction.Say you want to set a keyboard shortcut to do the following: For examples sake, set Alt+F to open Firefox and maximize it, but only if Firefox is not already running. If it is running and not maximized, then maximize the most recently touched Firefox window. If it is maximized, then minimize Firefox.
Is there a way to add a keyboard shortcut for a terminal command in OSX. Basically most of the times i open the terminal app in MAC in order to ssh into a certain server foo. What I want to do is add a keyboard shortcut (say ^k) so that on a terminal when I do that, it runs "ssh foo" in the terminal.
I switched from Windows to Linux, and one thing I'm missing is Altnnnn keyboard shortcuts to insert an em dash and other things. Is there any way to get them working under Linux? I'm using Arch Linux and KDE, if that matters.
I have the keyboard: HP 6511-SU and it has a lot of buttons that would be useful to me; however, Ubuntu does not even recognize and does absolutely nothing with the majority of the buttons it has. The ones that it does pick up, it is mapped incorrectly (ex.: the media button, "stop" would be mapped to "eject". That's easily corrected by remapping it by going to System> Preferences> Keyboard Shortcuts. Is there a program or configuration file that will map the unrecognized buttons?
Lately I've been browsing through media players to use to listen to music and I really like the look and feel of both Rhythmbox and Banshee.Problem is, I'm used to the keyboard control scheme of iTunes, where the spacebar and left/right arrow keys control play, previous, and next song respectively. This isn't the case in either of these programs.I am aware of the gnome setting in System>Preferences>Appearance>Interface>Editable menu shortcuts. But I can't get the menu shortcuts to use the left/right arrow keys.My question is.. does anyone know of anyway to use the control scheme of iTunes as i described before in either of these two players? Either by editing the shortcuts or editing a configuration file associated with one of the players?
