The following shell script works to make the Search key another Control key on a Samsung Chromebook when swapping the Search key and the Control key is activated under ChromeOS. In addition, on the system where this worked, the "keyboard" target of crouton was not loaded. (And, yongzhy's solution above doesn't work --- the Search key still expresses "mod4" ...

There is probably no one that know exactly where the keyboard configuration is kept. It depends if you have ibus set (by default yes), which xkb settings you have, and from the registry-under-another-name which has become the gsettings database. Try to use dconf-editor and compare bits of configuration under the schema desktop.ibus and/or ...

If you don't want to get into the pain of xmodmap, you can also do it through gnome settings. sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool, open it, go to Typing, and change the Ctrl key position option to Swap left Alt and Ctrl: You could probably also do this stuff via gsettings, but am not sure of the exact config entry name.

In there, log in under an admin user, and type showkey --scancodes If you press Esc and you get 0x01 0x81 your keyboard is definitely working. After that, do a xev | grep -A2 ...

I'm running Lubuntu Desktop on top of Ubuntu Server 14.04 LTS on a virtual machine on a Macbook Air mid 2013 running VMware Fusion 7.1 on OS X Yosemite 10.10.1. Assuming you're using Keyboard Layout Handler from the panel, first remove the gb(mac) keyboard layout from your list. And make sure you have apple_laptop set as the keyboard model. Go to ...

Seems like it just started to work, but I don't know why. The only thing I've done that might have fixed it was updating the system, but it might be something else entirely, so I can't give any advice to people in the same situation.

In my case, running Yosemite and the latest version of xquartz, going through ssh -X to CentOS 6.5 in VMWare Fusion, I could not resolve that problem with switching layouts. US and Russian layouts, in my case. When I started, for example, gnome-terminal, I just couldn't switch to my RU language, using any key combinations. So, after half a day of ...

Unfortunately I am unable to post a comment to answers due to too few reputation points. But my "comment" is legit and needed since it may shed light on how to avoid Ubuntu to update the patch to its original version. So I ask if it might help using 'aptitude' to forbid the Ubuntu's official version? and if so, how it is done? Thank you.

On my Asus k55v, brightness & rfkill (wifi on/off) where not working when I install Debian.

It should see like GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="acpi_osi='!Windows 2012'" Then execute, ...

There is a slight problem with the accepted answer, in that it cannot handle custom commands with quotes in them. I only changed the processing of custom commands to generate correct output. #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; my $action = ''; my $filename = '-'; for my $arg (@ARGV){ if ($arg eq "-e" or $arg eq "--export"){ $action = 'export'; } ...

Okay, I solved the problem. First off, xmodmaprc doesn't work in Ubuntu 14.04. The solution is to edit xkb (X KeyBoard extension) config files. Find the file /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc, backup it, then open and comment out the line: key <LSGT> { [ less, greater, bar, brokenbar ] }; And on the next line, add the following: key <LSGT> ...
