Ubuntu :: Buttons References - Use The <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 For The Enabled Compiz Screenshot Plugin)?
Jun 5, 2011
how to use the <Super>ButtonX (<Super>Button1 for example for the enabled Compiz Screenshot plugin)? I also notice there is configurable buttons 1 throught 20 under the various options. At first I thought the ButtonX was a mouse button. Maybe it is with some anticipation of there being eventually being a possible 20 buttons on the mouse. I know the Super key is the Key with the Windows logo on it. But I don't know what to do to get the needed Super Key / Button combination. After having enabled Compiz's Screenshot plugin by its default, I don't get an image after hitting any of the Super key and mouse button combinations. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.
I made WINE emulate a virtual desktop several times larger than the real desktop in size. Now, i need to make a screenshot of the whole virtual desktop. But, only its visible part gets captured. Making screenshot in parts is not possible as the image is constantly changing. Any ideas on capturing the whole virtual desktop?
I've just upgraded to 11.04 and I can't get Super Key working in Compiz, which should be binded to Left Win. It shows up as Multi_key when I enter a key combination. However, if I bind Caps Lock to Super Key it works when entering a key combination. I'm also using a Logitech MK520 keyboard.
Add some pictures inside your Pictures home folder (~/Pictures). Summon Gnome-DO by hitting [Super]and[Space] Type "slideshow", hit [TAB] and select the 'Pictures' folder or another user-defined folder where pictures are stored and finally hit [ENTER] I've Googled the topic (super key) but all I've found is "what," not "where."
I would like that the shortcut <super>+<space> open gnome-do. I set all this in gnome-do already, but everytime I hit the <super> key, the unity menu shows up. I'm using 11.04, 32bit on a lenovo 3000 V200.
Recently I installed Ubuntu using WUBI. During installation it asked for a user name and password which I filled in. That user name and password are the same that I now use to log into ubuntu. But now I am unable to log into super user using the terminal. When I try to log in to the super user account it says that the password is wrong. During the whole installation process only once did wubi ask me to enter password and I am using the same password. My windows user name and password are the same as what I entered during installation.
I've been working on this for a couple days, but I cannot seem to find a solution either on my own or through trusty Google. For whatever reason, I cannot get the Super key assigned to the Left Win as I have had it in the past. There does not seem to be an option to do that in the Keyboard layout thingy.
web browsing is going SUPER slow in my samsung N150 netbook with dual boot(win7/ubuntu10.04). Windows counterpart working flawlessly.
Into the details:
The problem is, i go into a website and it seems to renderize by chunks, ie i enter my favorite PC hardware forum and it is like this when loading: Processors...1sec....Vid cards....1sec...Memory...and on and on until the bottom of the page is reached. The normal behavior is: Click...forum loaded ,as on windows.
By default i use my wireless conection, but also tried wired one to no avail. Also tried it from the live cd and i have the same problem. Some sitess like google, gmail and ..... load normally(instantly). I've tried disabling ipv6 as adviced in several parts and had no results. I used the default firefox 3.6.6, firefox 3.6.7 and chrome with the same results.
This is the info for my wireless adapter just in case:
I just installed Fedora 11 on my PC and can't seem to get the Win key to work at all I tried putting entries in xmodmap, tried modifying xorg.conf, and also tried setting altwin:super_win in the config settings. But nothing seems to work. Somehow, my Win key seems to be working as Meta instead of Super. From emacs, if I press Win+x, it works like Meta+x.
Predefinations: From here on in, I will refer to the "Windows Key" on the keyboard as the "Super Key" (Linux terminology)
Consider a user's experience in Windows: * UseCaseA: Accessing the start menu --> "Super Key" open the menu. * UseCaseB: Open the "run dialogue" --> "Super Key" + R * UseCaseC: Open win explorer --> "Super Key" + E * etc.
In GNOME/ubuntu however, apparently there is this odd limitation in that the "Super Key" cannot be both a standalone key, and a modifier key. Is it still the case? Currently running Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10. Apparently in KDE this works, and in Windows it's worked since Windows95. How can we achieve this functionality in Ubuntu/gnome?
I have been trying to run the program unrevoked so that I can flash and root my phone. I want to do this on Linux, but this requires me to run the program as root and I don't know how to do this. I looked it up online and it told me to simply type sudo reflash or gksudo reflash and I tried both, sudo says it can't find the program and gksudo does something then nothing appears to happen.
When I had Windows (XP x64 or 7 64-bits) installed on my computer, my LG super multi drive worked fine. But now, with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bits, this drive doesn't work. When I click on the physical button to eject the drive, nothing happens.
I've been Linux-only for several years, and (finally!) installed Suse 11.2; AMD 64-bit, 3Gb RAM.I'm getting random freezes, after I've pressed the Super (Windows) button; screen still visible, mouse pointer moves, but nothing happens, I have to restart. Really frustrating; it's my major complaint, otherwise 11.2 looks good.: I use super+scroll button for desktop zoom in Mint with no problem at all.
What are the chances of super smart phones being released?Devices which look like normal smart phones, but have the ability to run a full blown linux distro like ubuntu and have the power to play 1080p files, which also come with docking stations so you can plugin an external display, usb keyboard and mouse, so at home, it can be used as a normal desktop PC...Possibly using the ION based NVIDIA GPU with dual core 64bit processor!
So I have seen several super boot disks based on winpe(Like Bartpe super boot disk) out there and I am wondering if anyone can happen to point me to one that is based off open source software.
Super Boot Disk = A single boot disk that accomplishes a great many common tasks needed to rescue a system.some things that I am looking for in this would be: Virus scan, memory test, bootloader recovery, hard disk drive recovery/testing, gparted, clonzilla.and whatever else you could think of.I see that gparted and clonzilla both have live cd's available..but im looking to only carry one disk.
How is the super user determined for the dialog box that pops up when trying to perform administrative tasks, "An application is attempting to perform an action that requires privileges. Authentication as the super user is required to perform this action."? Does it always ask for the password of the default user created during the OS install, or should it prompt for the current user's password if that person is an administrator?I use likewise-open for windows domain authentication, so I typically log in as a windows user that likewise-open has added to the list of users on this system. I have given this user sudo access and added the user to all the same groups as the default user, yet whenever I perform an administrative task in gnome I am prompted for the password of the default user. Is this normal? It seems like the behavior would be to ask for the current user's password if that user is an administrator, and if so what determines that the current user is an administrator?
What is causing this graphic distortion?I dropped Vista because this problem would crash the video driver and pop a black screen for a few seconds over and over and over and over.Now that I installed ****ING Ubuntu it's doing this problem, but without the black screens and only messed up graphics show.So what the heck guys, is this a hardware or software problem? And this same type of graphic distortion appears in games like Combat Arms and Halo.I am so SICK of NVIDIA never ever in my whole entire life will I ever buy NVIDIA again! Luckily for nvidia I'm only 17 years old and have 40 years of life left to buy computers without nvidia in them. Until I save up dough for a new computer "without nvidia" I'll keep trying to fix this. P.S this nvidia chip is tied down to my motherboard.
