Ubuntu :: Which Allow To Use The Keyboard Shortcuts To Make A Shortcut?

Apr 8, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Evince Open File Keyboard Shortcut?

Ubuntu :: Make A Keyboard Shortcut That Runs A Script

Apr 13, 2011

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:

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?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut To Open Launcher Without Opening The Dash?

Jul 21, 2011

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?

Ubuntu :: Play An Audio File With A System-wide Keyboard Shortcut?

Aug 25, 2010

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.

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

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.

General :: A Keyboard Shortcut For The "status Menu" In GNOME 3

Jul 17, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Right Mouse Click Freeze / When Right Mouse Button To Open Options Menu It Freezes And Does Not Open Menu?

Oct 14, 2010

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.

My System Specs:
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
Western Digital 250 GB Hard Drive
Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit (Kernel Linux 2.6.35-22)
(Used Desktop Install CD)
