Was looking for this myself and stumbled upon this link. Before following those instructions though, make sure you have run: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install git Also, the link has the incorrect FINAL command to run. It should be: sudo nodejs server.js This works on my MSI GT60-2OC. It is a little cumbersome to configure, but not too bad once ...

Ubuntu 14.04 have no more "Miscellaneous compatibility options" in the keyboard settings. Editing /etc/default/keyboard also is not a working solution. But dconf database contains the required options with key /org/gnome/desktop/input-sources/xkb-options. This options should be completed with numpad:microsoft to something like ['grp:alt_shift_toggle', ...

Reload the custom keyboard shortcuts as follows: Restart compiz. Open the terminal and type: setsid compiz --replace Restart unity shell. Open a run window, not a terminal, with the keyboard combination Alt+F2 and type unity. Click on the unity icon to restart unity shell.

I had the same problem but found a solution by changing my BIOS settings of my Lenovo Flex 15 Easypad. I had to change the BIOS-setting "UEFI optimized for Windows 8" (was preinstalled on this laptop, I erased it and installed Lubuntu 14.04) to "Other OS". That did the trick for me.

I solved it by modifying keyboard layout. First I checked what symbols were used in current layouts with $setxkbmap -print -v 10 Then modified /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/inet lines key <I180> {[XF86HomePage]}; key <I225> {[XF86Search]}; to lines borrowed from /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/altwin key <I180> {[Alt_L, ...

The best solution in your case would probably be a custom keyboard layout. Now unfortunately these are quite hard to create and install, but you can look through the following tutorials as a starting point: How to add a new keyboard layout (Custom keyboard layout definition) Howto: Custom keyboard layout definitions Building an XKB Keyboard. The main ...

Simply go to System Settings Keyboard Text Entry (under the tab "Typing") Add input source (the plus) choose "French (eliminate dead keys)" This is for Ubuntu 14.04 so some of the names may vary. But all you have to do is eliminate dead keys.

Alternative method using xmodmap. First, find out the keycode for the replacement key. Hit your required replacement key after executing the following command. xev | grep -A2 --line-buffered '^KeyRelease' | sed -n '/keycode /s/^.*keycode \([0-9]*\).* (.*, \(.*\)).*$/\1 \2/p' You will see keycode and its name echoed to screen. Close the other window which ...

I'd suggest double-checking your command in the shortcut list. I know I still have a tendency to leave the 4 out of xfce4-terminal sometimes.

You might still be missing some fonts. Use winetricks to get all basic fonts: winetricks corefonts If the error persists, you can try getting all fonts: winetricks allfonts This should help, according to this WineHQ AppDB test result.

This looks like it could be bug #1292290 - Window manager keybindings don't work after reboot. A workaround is mentioned there: I found a workaround: clear before reassign!

Somehow the updates had been interrupted, due to which the packages were not properly configured. To fix this problem, login through tty(CTRL+Alt+F1) and type the command, sudo dpkg --configure -a This should fix all problems.

For that you would need to submit a bug report. So, press Alt+F2. In the input box type ubuntu-bug xkeyboard-config then press Enter. The apport program will begin to collect information about your system, and the page for the bug report will be opened in your default web browser. Just fill in the blanks and read the instructions.

You can not directly add the layout to the distribution release, you'd need to ask the devs for that. If you are talking about adding it to a disk yoursbeslf, the absolute easiest thing to do is just install it normally

Figured this out as I was asking. It's possible to click the category itself, ie. the line above "Northern Saami (Norway)" in the screenshot. (Not quite obvious, since it's quite a stretch to call e.g. Northern Saami a variant of Norwegian …)

Well it seems like I have forgotten an old problem: keyboard rollover. Certain USB keyboards seem to have a limitation on certain key combinaions - and it would appear that my keyboard has one on a quite inconvenient spot. I think I'll start using the wireless keyboard that does not seem to have this specific problem. You can read more about this on this ...

The problem is because of the inappropriate driver used. Ubuntu's default drivers might not suite your keyboard. If You have a dual boot use the keyboard on windows to confirm it is because of Ubuntu only. If yes then you will have to try additional drivers that might be provided by Manufacturer or Download from Internet. There is a additional driver option ...

Well, solved it. I had to type in setxkbmap -layout ro std in order for it to use the STANDARD Romanian keyboard. One issue is that on some websites swapping between layouts like that focuses out of the page and I have to click on the page again, but I'll just have to figure that one out.

Set your updates back to servers in the UK. Hong Kong servers cannot download updates in the UK keyboard layout. Besides, Canonical HQ is in the UK, so it is likely the servers in the UK are best.

Well, I saw the Belgian AZERTY keyboard. It has four full levels, so I tried to find a way to define DELTA on the menu key. It’s easy. Let’s do this in steps: Open the layout file for editing.

I found the answer in AltGr key combinations do not work in Linux virtual machines that are remotely accessed by VMware Infrastructure Client running in a Windows RDP or VNC session (1022454). This issue is caused by multiple protocol translations by third party software. When you press AltGr in Windows, VK_CONTROL and VK_MENU virtual keys are generated. ...

Check if you have USB Legacy Support enabled in the BIOS (also check for other USB/keyboard related settings) If that doesn't help: Does it work with other bootloaders? With other wireless/non-wireless keyboards?

You open System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts (tab) -> Typing (sidebar tab) you change either the "Switch to next source" or the "Switch to previous source". By default I think the shortcut for the next source is Super + Space. Super Key stands for the Windows button in case you are using a pc / laptop and in Mac is the cmd button.

It is surely very strange idea to turn Ubuntu into the codename "VimOS". I think much more adequate to map Vim's keys to some free and equable more cluster of the keyboard.

I found an amazing answer to this here: How do I swap Escape and Caps Lock. The answer was to install Tweak. It worked like a charm for me in swapping Caps Lock with Control.

The answer is surprisingly simple. 1) Under Settings / Keyboard / Layout Settings / Options you can swap around the alt/⌘ keys to your liking. I'm trying this option, which swaps Alt and ⌘ just on the left side of the keyboard. But the other option "Control is mapped to Alt keys, Alt is mapped to Win keys" also works, while removing the stupid "⌘" key ...

Sounds like a hardware problem possibly.. try the keyboard on another computer to find out. Also, as a stop-gap you can use ctrl+a and ctrl+e as home/end (the emacs way) which I much prefer personally.
