After upgrade to ubuntu 14.04, I had the same problem. What I did. In Ibus preferences: System > Preferences > Keyboard Input Methods. There is an option: Next input method it was set to ctrl+space, I removed that and then all started to work back again.

Alt+Tab can be used to easily switch between windows in Unity and most other Desktops - holding Alt down and pressing Tab repeatedly can be used to quickly switch between windows. Alt+` (the second key is just above Tab on a few keyboards) can be used to switch between windows of the same application Ctrl+NUMBER can be used to select items from the ...

If you are using Unity 3d it's "magic-key" + w. In Unity 2d it's alt + tab.

Yes, Ctrl+Super+↓ is a Compiz shortcut,: Open ccsm → Grid plugin (Window Management category) → Binding tab → Restore.

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.

This is very weird. It turns out that if my mouse button is still pressed (not yet released) when the Super+W keystroke is simulated, nothing happens. I don't know who to blame for that (perhaps Cinnamon?). I have worked around it though, by adding a short delay to the xte command: xte 'usleep 100000' 'keydown Super_L' 'key S' 'keyup Super_L' It now waits ...

You probably just need to unset the lock screen shortcut first: Just click on the right side of the shortcut, and when it says 'New Accelerator', press Backspace to unset it

This feature is already available. Pressing Super+1-9 has the same effect as clicking on the icons in launcher (numbered 1-9 from top to bottom). Since clicking on the icon goes to the window, you can use that. The Super for you is likely the Windows key. You can long-press on the Super for a list of shortcuts.

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.

This problem has resolved itself when I upgraded to the latest kernel. Don't know what caused it but it's gone now.

This is a known bug at Launchpad. On the meanwhile, these shortcuts work on Gedit 3.4.1 on Ubuntu 12.04: Zoom In: ctrl + shift + - Zoom out: ctrl + - Normal size: ctrl + 0 ctrl + mouse wheel don't work in either zoom in or zoom out.

I have also faced that type of problem earlier and initially used to restart. But now any type of such problem, then by using following command: kill -9 -1 This will kill processes and return to login screen, then after login all works well & successfully.

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! To make a shortcut to work ok, select an action you want to reassign and click 'Clear' button until it will really empty. Sometime if there is some (hidden?) duplicates, you will still ...

I had the same problem. For information see here and here (comment #221 and #232). It happened that there is a problem with applications which use java. I followed the things in comment #232 and did the following: add-apt-repository ppa:attente/java-non-latin-shortcuts; apt-get update; installed package gnome-settings-daemon 3.8.6.1-0ubuntu11.2ppa1; ...

Can be fixed by installing Compiz and enabling Static Application Switcher sudo apt-get install compiz sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager you might need to install compiz-plugins-extra as well and then ccsm

According to this bug thread, one of the recent versions of ibus was either added in 14.04 or added a new key binding for switching input methods. Luckily, removing the binding is trivial.

Noticing from your previous questions: How do I get my Compiz window decoractions back? Laptop using 14.04 won't get past login GUI That you are using ppa:eugenesan/ppa (same as me) which has couple of inconsistent package builds with higher versions then the ones in Ubuntu repository. As it seems bringing many issues for you. Better to ...

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 ...

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.

If you use NetworkManager, you can try this command to toggle wifi off and on: nmcli radio wifi off nmcli radio wifi on This commands works over D-Bus and is about the equivalent to rfkill block wifi; rfkill unblock wifi.

Yes. Go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Custom Shorcuts, then add a new one. In the "what command to be executed" line, type: dm-tool switch-to-greeter And then assign your chosen keypresses to it. Reference

About the workspaces, you also have to change it in compizconfig-settings-manger. Run ccsm in a terminal: ccsm Click in General, then General Options, click the Desktop Size tab, change the horizontal and vertical size there as you like.

I generally use the basic: Ctrl+F10

Regarding the alt+tab question, all I can advise is for you to install Compiz Settings Manager. Open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager compiz-plugins-default After installing you can launch it with ccsm Scroll down to Window Management and enable "Static Application Switcher". As for the work areas, I can't help. I ...

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.

In Linux, one can do any kind of adjustments on one's keyboard layout. You don't necessarily need a keyboard layout. You can simply modify your existing xkb keyboard layout. The xkb keyboard layout files are kept in directory /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/. From there just select your language with the code, for instance fr for french, es for spanish, or us ...

You can use Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts, but I think it is limited to a single character key. On the otherhand, the shortcut I use to make "@" is shift-2

Just do this to create it with the same access rights as .bashrc: touch ~/.inputrc chmod --reference=~/.bashrc ~/.inputrc NOTE : --reference : it inherits permissions of specified file .

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. Or definitely NOT due to it is also might be useful. However I do not deletes my first suggest about Vim mappings and should to say that answer to your question exist here: System wide ...

1.Run a command, it means run a command and a program name is not a command most of the time. 2.I would guess this may be a gnome or gtk issue/feature.

IMO Unity is a bug from the outset...:P. Those are not really bugs, simply a lack of added features that have become the norm on other systems. I don't think they have the same keywords/tags or at least the universal desktop search only recognizes the actual names instead of how the desk search in the menu uses a more complete system of scanning. This allows ...

Okay, just rubber ducked a solution here. Found the answer right after posting the question. After pulling my hair out for an hour, I checked the Custom Shortcuts config section one more time and found a place where you can enable/disable gestures for various components. There is a KMenuEdit component that I had accidentally disabled. So to re-enable ...

Okay, I guess I figured this one out myself. To change the keys in Xubuntu, you have to enter the following in the terminal: sudo xmodmap -e "remove mod4 = Super_L" sudo xmodmap -e "add control = Super_L" This worked for me, even after reboot.

I believe the new shortcuts are SuperSpaceand ShiftSuperSpace. To change them, go to the Input Sources section of the Region and Language settings.

I am also facing this issue. At this time I don't have a solution other than to suggest you to press super-d again to unminimize the windows and then press super-w for window spread. This is actually a bug in compiz package/unity. Here are the 3 bug reports I'm following and hoping to get resolved soon. Bugs 1 2 3

I don't have the gnome environment installed, but still ran into the same symptoms. I'm not certain why, since my install has been working fine for a few months, but just today all the shortcuts in the "Keyboard settings" ceased to work. As is hinted at briefly at the bottom of this thread, there seems to be a bad gnome configuration. I tried removing my ...
