I'm trying to install Cinelerra because it has a plugin to do chromakey. I found a .deb and installed it, but now I don't know how to start the program. It didn't make a shortcut in my main menu, and typing "cinelerracv" returns "command not found"Did I install it wrong, or not at all? What should I try next?
Ctrl + L to give focus on address barCtrl + K to give focus on search barLike these, is there a keyboard shortcut to give focus on the main content (where webpage is displayed).By default when a new webpage loads, it automatically gets focus. However, what to do if I am already working in the address bar and want to reach the main content area (without using mouse)?
After upgrading Opera browser, by old shortcut for it became invalid. The new was added but the old one stayed and is invalid. I can not remove it through normal means as it doesn't appear in the menu editing window but it's there in the menu. Is there any way to manually remove items from the menu? Or to rebuild the entire menu?
I wrote bash script that uses zenity and a choice to install various programs, tested it and it works, but only when I call it from terminal. I wanted to add it in gnome main menu. The script is /home/eee/zenity.sh. In accessories I added an entry with command:
Code: /home/eee/zenity.sh , but since there is no terminal it starts zenity, but it does not work. I have also tried Code: gksu gnome-terminal -x /home/eee/zenity.sh
I'm just wondering if anyone knows the command to access the menu bar, as in the file edit view bar, not the applications places system one. I'm trying to create a keyboard shortcut to access the menu bar and I need to know the command for this.
First off, I have been quite clumsy lately. I recently poured water into my computer by accident; and it works somewhat fine, though the keys A and E do not work. At this point I am using an external keyboard, but since it's a laptop and I am using it at school, that is not what one would wish for. So, my question is; is there any way which will allow me to use the Keyboard Shortcuts to make a shortcut which will for example use ALT+Ctrl+<button> to write the letter A?
My second question is; Do anyone know what has happened with what I will describe in the following text; or perhaps recognice the problem and a solution? One of my friends has installed XUbuntu on his netbook. It has been running just fine; and for a while after he upgraded to 9.10, his computer went somewhat broke. It boots up fine, and it loads the login screen; but instead of being able to log in, it switches to a terminal. We have tried using it to log in, but as none of us are any good with the terminal we have not succeeded.
For some reason, Evince has the open file keyboard shortcut set to "A", which means that if I'm searching for text in a pdf and I type the "a" key, the "Open Document" dialog box is called. How can I fix this?
I've been searching for a while now but can't find what I'm looking for. I want to make a keyboard shortcut that runs a script that types keystrokes wherever the cursor is. For example, if I am in a text editor and press "ctrl+alt+q", I would like it to type some predetermined string to the page. On Windows, AutoHotKey does this. I can't seem to get it working in gnome, though.
I have installed lineakd, and I have a file ~/.scripts/type.sh that looks like:
#!/bin/sh xsendkeys "blahblahblah"
I have the command sh ~/.scripts/type.sh set to the key combination I want in system->preferences->keyboard-shortcuts.
I'm sure I'm not using xsendkeys correctly, but couldn't find much documentation on it. Anybody know how xsendkeys works or how I might solve this problem another way?
In natty, if I hit the super key once, it opens the launcher, but it also opens the dash. And the launcher doesn't work the same when the dash is open. It takes two clicks on a program icon to open the program when the dash is open, and only one click when the dash is closed. Just enough to keep me from getting into a rhythm.Hitting the super key twice will open the launcher and close the dash, but only if you don't hit the super key twice too quickly. Is there some way I can configure unity so the super key (or some other key) opens the launcher but does not open the dash?
Was wondering if there is a simple way to make the kickoff menu slightly larger than the panel similar to the way Windows 7 can have their (formerly-known-as) "Start" button larger?I have KDE on my laptop and am trying to make the best use of the small screen space. The Plasma Netbook Workspaces is alright, but I ended up returning to base KDE instead.
After a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 and having installed a bunch of apps, I wanted to adjust the main menu but have found that I can't actually launch the main menu from the System / Preferences menu. Nothing happens.ried typing the Main Menu command alacarte into terminal, and I get the following read out.
jvc@CF1:~$ alacarte Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 36, in <module>
I do a bit of script writing, and part of this involves reading the text aloud and reacting to audio cues. What I'd love to do is set up a method of playing audio files at whim based on a general shortcut. So, say if I pressed <Super>C1, I could play ~/Music/cue1.mp3, <Super>C2 would be ~/Music/cue2.ogg etc.
Currently the closest I've got is using the terminal and a modified .bashrc to play via VLC's ncurses.
Code: alias cue1="vlc -I ncurses ./Music/cue1.mp3"
Obviously this isn't very near to what I want. Entering a Keyboard Shortcut using the usual methods (xbindkeys, gconf-editor, the KeyShort Preferences GUI) to run
Code: vlc -I ncurses ./Music/cue1.mp
doesn't play anything. Is it possible to launch these kinds of commands as shortcuts, or am I hoping for too much? My Google trawls have been pretty fruitless. I'm running Lucid, btw.
I recently managed to install it on a PC alongside Windows XP (seperate hard disk's). Anyways I downloaded AVG 8.5.732 (avg85flx-r732-a3168.i386.deb) and installed the package (Synaptic Package Manager lists it as being installed) but I can't find in the Ubuntu Software Centre nor can I find it in the system/main menu list.
Is there a keyboard shortcut, or can a keyboard shortcut be defined, to open the GNOME 3 "status menu" (the one in the upper right corner with your name on it that you use to log out, restart or shut down the machine)?
I want to be able to reboot or shut down the machine without using the mouse. In GNOME 2 I could do Alt+F1 and a short arrow key sequence, and now I want something similar.
Terminal is not an option - the GUI already has the necessary permissions and I want to take advantage of that, not sudo shutdown -h.
I'm using Image Viewer to go through a bunch of pictures and most of them need small fixes which I'm doing in GIMP. At the moment, I'm going through the right-click menu to open them in GIMP, but I wondered if there was an easy way to add a keyboard shortcut to do this. Think I figured out how to make a keyboard shortcut to open GIMP in general, but not sure how to do "Open With"

just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.
