Ubuntu :: Ctrl+Alt+Delete Keyboard Shortcut Accidentally Replaced?

Jan 16, 2011

I thought it would be a great idea to make Ctrl+Alt+Del a keyboard shortcut for the System Monitor (counterpart of Windows Task Manager). (So it wasn't really accidental)I want to revert to default, how do I do that?

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 :: (Gnome) Panel Shortcut Not Working?

Mar 16, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu for years now, and I don't think I've ever seen this problem before. I've given as much relevant detail as I can think of below;On Ubuntu 10.10 (32-bit), I have compiled TOra 2.1.2 from source (obtained from the repo) to enable Oracle support. I need to run it socksified, which works just fine by executing it from the terminal:Code:toxsocks torHowever, a panel shortcut using that exact command doesn't launch anything.I don't think it has to do with the `toxsocks` part, as I have a Firefox launcher using a similar command working perfectly:

toxsocks firefox -no-remote -P username
And, for the record:

Ubuntu :: Making A Shortcut Panel For Tablet (Gnome)?

Aug 2, 2011

I'm trying to make a panel on the right side of the screen that can be hidden/shown by pressing a shortcut on the top panel. I can probably figure out the hide/show script without a problem, but what I can't seem to figure out is how to keep this panel on the far right side of the screen without it stopping my windows from stretching that far. If I drag it away from one of the sides of the screen, it behaves like a window and I can stretch my windows as far as I want. Is there some way to make it behave like a window, while still staying at the far right? I don't want to use auto-hide, because not only will it pop up when I don't want it to, but it will make it more difficult to use with the touch screen.

General :: Launch Application With Keyboard Shortcut In Gnome

Dec 13, 2010

I use ctrl + shift + s to launch synaptic in KDE. That works wonderful and it is standardized on all my systems. I want to define the same in gnome, so that it does not matter if I'm in gnome or KDE.Where can I do this?Now before you start mentioning, I am familiar with keyboard launchers like launchy or gnome do (but have to admit that I don't know that much what gnome do does in all extents), so I am not looking for a program that launches an app after typing a few letters. I want exactly that keyboard combination, everything else will not do it.

I just mention that, because it happens all the time that I see in my posts that I ask:
How can I do B with Y? I don't want to use Z. (specifically asking the question) and then hear as an answer: you can do B with Z!And I am always tempted to answer: That is not what I asked, I asked something specific and got an answer that does not concern it.

Ubuntu :: Use GNOME Panel Icons With Keyboard (shortcuts, Accessibility, Navigate, Keys)?

May 26, 2011

Surviving without mouse or touchpad I have been looking for this without initial success: only 2 oldie questions like the one I was going to place:
[URL]... But I found it!!: [URL]...

So the key keyboard shortcut is:

With it you change the focus from the desktop to the panel, and vice versa When the focus in in the panel you can move from icon to icon with TAB (to the right) or SHIFT+TAB (to the left). Then Enter key (sometimes F10 instead) makes the same as left-clicking with the mouse, and SHIFT+F10 makes the same as right-clicking with the mouse. ESC key (sometimes Enter instead) takes the menus out.

There is something about this in: [URL]...

Fedora :: Get Rid Of Recent Documents Under Places Menu On Gnome Panel?

Oct 18, 2009

There are measures to stop this in Windows even though there are still things you can't get rid of. Now on to my question, Why can't I edit the Places menu but I can edit the Applications and System menus. I really want to get rid of the Recent Documents menu header. I don't like things like that right up on front street. I am quite a stickler about privacy and one of the reasons I decided to try out linux is because I heard it was better in the sense of respecting privacy. But now I am seeing that you don't even have the ability to get rid of a tracking item such as Recent Documents. Quite disappointing.

I can understand tracking recent changes to the system but it is not necessary to track what you open or what you browse on the internet. Hence Firfox's ability to not store history and the clear cache, history, etc. on shutdown of Firefox. So Am I misinformed about the fact that linux does respect privacy? What kind of world are we coming to that it is necessary to track everything. Especially here in the U.S., I mean I'm thinking 1984 here lol. Anyway, how to remove these tracking features in Fedora. I mean in the sense of just stopping it. It sucks to have to go through and "clear" everything that tracks you every time you want to log off or shut down.

Ubuntu :: Replaced Pulseaudio With Esound; No Sound Control On Panel

Jul 2, 2010

I have Ubuntu 9.10. I was having trouble with sound in Skype. So I read on the forum that I needed to replace pulseaudio with esound, more or less as described here:


I did that and skype is working!

But now there's no more sound control on the panel. It doesn't offer a sound control when I right click and look through "add to menu". I saw a post that said that the sound control would appear in the "indicator applet" on the the panel, but that didn't work.

Preferences--sound gives me a message "waiting for sound system to respond." The solutions that I've read on forums seem to imply that I need to reinstall pulseaudio. But that will bring me back to my original problem with Skype.Do I need to upgrade to the new version of Ubuntu to fix it? I hadn't upgraded because I've been told the newer version is a bit slower.

Ubuntu :: Replaced Gnome - Terminal Icon?

Sep 22, 2010

I created a menu entry to run MATLAB using

gnome-terminal -x /usr/local/bin/matlab After using MATLAB a few times, I realized that my gnome-terminal icon has actually been replaced with the MATLAB icon, even when I'm running the terminal by itself. Meaning that it shows the MATLAB icon in the taskbar and the Run Applications dialog when I type in gnome-terminal.

Ubuntu :: Shortcut To Partition On Panel?

Jun 11, 2011

Running 10.10 and trying to create a shortcut to an already-mounted partition on the panel. I've tried every command line argument I could think of in the "create custom launcher"'s "location" or "comment" textboxes. I've tried using the UUID. I've tried dragging the partition from Nautilus to the panel and that allows me to do that. When I execute the panel shortcut it still errors with no application associated. I tried adding "nautilus" to the command lines but still errors.

how to add a shortcut/launcher on the panel to a mounted partition?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Shortcut For Ssh?

May 10, 2010

I recently switched from GNOME to xfce, and I can't get working a simple keyboard shortcut to ssh to another machine.

In GNOME, I made a launcher (which gnome-do found); the first time I ran the launcher I'd get an X11 popup asking for by ssh passphrase, and then it would be saved for the rest of the GNOME session, making logins nice and fast.

In xfce, a similar launcher opens a new xfce4-terminal, which asks for the passphrase every time. I made a keyboard shortcut to "ssh -X me@server" -- this open an X11 popup for the passphrase, but no terminal, because there is no "run in terminal" option for keyboard shortcuts.

I'd be okay with running "ssh-add" at every login, but it has to be system-wide, rather than attached to one terminal instance. Passphraseless ssh is an options but a creepy one.

OpenSUSE :: Add An App Shortcut To KDE Panel?

Feb 11, 2010

I rebuild my desktop after deleting my plasma config files but for the life of me cannot figure out how to place application shorts onto the panel. The solutions I found by googling don't seem to apply to KDE4.4.0 or oS's implementation of it.

I've tried right clicking on the panel which according to KDE's docs should bring up a context menu which has the option to add application to the panel. This does not exist on my installation.
