General :: Disable Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+X In Rdesktop?
Dec 27, 2010
I am doing a project on rdesktop. My aim is to setup a write/copy protected session. I have made rdesktop connection between two Linux machines using Xrdp.Next I want to disable the ctrl+x,ctrl+v keys and the cut and copy option in mouse right click at client side
I have 3 layouts: USA, Russian and Hebrew. In Hebrew the W key is mapped to apostrophe, so Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout doesn't close tabs in Firefox. There is no workaround for it as I see by now, so I am trying to get it work this way:I want to map Ctrl+W in Hebrew layout(which is actually a Ctrl+') to be a Ctrl+w. Here is what I got from xmodmap:Code:$ xmodmap -pke | grep 25keycode 25 = w W Cyrillic_tse Cyrillic_TSE apostrophe WAs you can see, there are pairs for each layout, each pair tells what happens without and with the Shift key pressed.
" Mark the start of the text with "v", "V" or CTRL-V. The character under the cursor will be used as the start.""With CTRL-V (blockwise Visual mode) the highlighted text will be a rectanglebetween start position and the cursor."I can mark the start with "v" or "V".But it doesn't work when I push ctrl+V.
I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and already am really annoyed by Firefox, which freezes my mouse after changing a tab (with ctrl+tab, alt+#) or closing it (ctrl+w). After about one second, i can continue working as usual. Changing Tabs by just clicking on one does not freeze anything...Maybe some of you would think now if I am crazy because of complaining about such a little thing, but it is really annoying if you are used to work fluently with ff.Edit:I today noticed, that not only shortcuts in firefox, but all Hotkeys freeze my mouse for a second. For examle ctrl+c, ctrl+v, super+e or anything else.Do you have any Idea what causes this behaviour? Reinstalling ubuntu didn't change anything
I just spent a few days ripping out all the broken/buggy apps that are in the opensuse 11.2 official repos so I can finally get working software(openoffice, thunderbird, wine, eclipse, rubygems, rails, and a few others required getting the "official" versions from their respective websites to avoid strange behavior and outright broken functionality).
All of which makes updating more annoying and time-consuming. Why are opensuse packages so different anyway? Anyway, the last thing that I have noticed to fix is Konsole. For some really bizarre reason ctrl+z and ctrl+c do not work without a third keystroke: enter.Maybe this is something new with the KDE team, since they seem bent on making simple things that already work more complex, but given my experience with crappy packages in the suse repos, I am thinking this is the problem. I have looked over all the config settings that I can find and nothing fixes this affront to productivity.
I've been using Kaggregator in KDE-PIM, which uses Konqueror as the browserto go to links from Kaggregator.Unfortunately, Konqueror no longer seems tobe able to Copy highlighted material with Ctrl C, the way we've done it forever.Is this a setting I've missed? Or is this a new "feature" in Konqueror?
I'm trying to write a init.d script to daemonise a sagemath notebook server. Here's what I've done so far, I've copied /etc/init.d/single for the structure, and tried to use dtach to provide a handle to access the process. However, my main problem is issuing the signals to kill the process (Ctrl-C) from a bash script and exit dtach (Ctrl-`)
When I press Ctrl-C in any pseudoterminal (xterm, gnome-terminal, rxvt, text console and SSH) in Karmic Koala, the string ^C gets echoed to the terminal in Ubuntu Karmic Koala. This hasn't happened in Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalope. I'd like to get rid of the extra ^C. Example:
$ cat foo foo ^C $ _
I got the above by typing C, A, T, Enter, F, O, O, Enter, Ctrl-C. I want to get rid of the ^C, and get this for the same keypresses:
I tried setting stty -echoctl, which solved the problem for rxvt and xterm outside SSH, but it created a single-character HT when SSHing from an Ubuntu Hardy system, and it created a box with Unicode 0003 in it instead of the ^C in gnome-terminal. I want to see absolutely nothing when I press Ctrl-C. I'm using. Linux linux 2.6.31-20-generic-pae #57-Ubuntu SMP Mon Feb 8 10:23:59 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux I have these terminal settings in all systems and all terminal emulators:
I often use the key combination ctrl + shift + F10 in my editor, and sometimes I mistakenly hit ctrl + alt + F10 which instantly transports me to a black screen with nothing but a cursor resulting in my having to reboot. I have no idea what the purpose of this key binding is but I want to get rid of it. I have looked in 'keyboard shortcuts' but there is none listed for ctrl + alt + F10. How do I disable this once and for all?
There must be a way to disable CTRL+Q for Nautilus, but google has failed me Actually, I usually have several permanent nautilus windows opened, and when I just hit CTRL+Q on the wrong window, it closed all of nautilus!
So I just "pkill nautilus" to restore the previous nautilus session (even if we can't control nautilus window session manually). But there are still a few things that could be improved for Nautilus. So for now, can we disable CTRL+Q shortcut for Nautilus?
How do I write my trap statement in shell script to ignore SIGINT.Reason being is that the script is used to update records in database. I want to avoid inconsistency in database when user presses Ctrl-C .The result should be
1. Totally ignore Ctrl-C (SIGINT) when user presses Ctrl-C 2. Continue with the rest of processing
how to swap the CTRL and ALT keys in KDE? to me it seem like the ALT key is better positioned to be used more often for stuff like the CTRL-W close or the CTRL-S save. and there is no way to press CTRL without taking my fingers off of the home row.
ok, I pressed alt-ctrl-f1 and it displayed my screen with a gui. I then pressed alt-ctrl-f2 and it displayed a textual desktop. I pressed alt-ctrl-f3 and it displayed the same thing. When I pressed alt-ctrl-f1 to return to my gui, it would not let me return to a gui. I was stuck in a cmd line textual desktop.
How, without restarting, do i return to a gui once I press alt-ctrl-f2??
I am using opensuse 11.2 on my dell studio 14 laptop and to my surprise the key combination for bringing up text based console does not function as expected.when I press ctrl+alt+ fn keys I am greeted with a blank screen and ctrl+alt+F7 brings me back to the GUI plasma desktop.Does this have to do something with the acpi=off thing I did for booting successfully into linux ( without this option, the screen would go off and not respond to anything ... physical restart was the only option). although my system starts off without any fuss, OS does not detect the battery of my laptop.
I'm currently logged in (locally) to a machine and was running in a TTY session without having started an X server. I accidentally Ctrl-Alt-F7'ed bringing me to where the graphical shell would be if it was running. The trouble is, I can't get back. I assume going to another TTY is forbidden using the standard Ctrl-Alt-F* to protect students who have logged in to KDE or whatever, locked the screen, but don't realize that anyone could come along and Ctrl-Alt-F1 into their TTY session. The trouble is that there IS no X server running, and so I can't exit from it, and am stuck in the Ctrl-Alt-F7 TTY which just has a cursor blinking at the top left of the screen.
Is there another way to switch currently-viewed TTY? How can I get out of this?
Ctrl-c doesn't always work to kill the current process (for instance, if that process is busy in certain network operations). In that case, you just see "^C" by your cursor, and can't do much else.What's the easiest way to force that process to die now without losing my terminal?
Summary of answers below:Usually, you can Ctrl-z to put the process to sleep, and then do "kill -9 process-pid", where you find the process's pid with 'ps' and other tools.On Bash (and possibly other shells) you can do "kill -9 %1" (or '%N' in general) which is easier. If Ctrl-z doesn't work, you'll have to open another terminal and kill from there.
On Linux, the Ctrl-[ key combination appears to be equivalent to hitting the Esc key. I would like to define Ctrl-[ as a shortcut in emacs but I am unable to because by the time the keystroke gets to emacs it looks like the Esc key was pressed. Is there anyway to disable this behavior so that Ctrl-[ simply means Ctrl-[?
