The problem was that I had ClipIt 1.4.2 installed and Ctrl+Alt+O is set by default to the Off-line Mode hot-key.

@dobey's solution works if you want to have only one keyboard shortcut for increasing / decreasing the volume. If instead you want to have multiple key bindings controlling the volume (like to keep the default volume buttons on your laptop working, while adding additional keyboard shortcuts to use when you connect an external keyboard that does not have ...

Use Alt+ Numbers. For example, Alt+1 to go to the first page, Alt+6 to go to the 6th page, etc. But this shortcut works only when less than 9 tabs are opened. For managing a lot of tabs consider using Tabs Menu extension. Once it is installed you can go to menubar by pressing Alt+F10, and there will be tabs menu with the list of all opened tabs. See ...

I'm very sorry to say but you want Ubuntu to be Windows, which is not going to happen tomorrow... :-( Ubuntu is based on Linux, and although it has "windows" than can be dragged around a "desktop" and that it adheres to the CUA like Windows, it's just not the same thing! Asking for something and ruling out all possible answers is just going to leave you ...

It's just the way it is in the new version. As I use cross-references a lot, I never even noticed because I've got a short-cut key defined for that: Ctrl+Alt+E Go to Tools then Customise and click on the Keyboard tab. navigate to the shortcut key Ctrl+Alt+E as in the above screenshot click category "Insert", function "Cross-reference" hit Modify and ...

I assume that you are referring to a session like an ssh/putty. In that case, AFAIK, no. As an aside, CTRL-ALT PgUp or PgDn will let you scroll one line at a time.

When Keepboard is activated, the second item in the history is selected by default (because the top item is in the clipboard anyway and can be pasted directly without activating clipboard manager). Thus you can quickly paste the second item by using Keepboard activation hotkey and pressing Enter right away.

You can check Keepboard. It provides configurable shortcut keys for activation and other common operations.

2 possibilities if you cannot enable the webcam under windows and do not have the exact model number of the webcam: (no, the brand of the laptop doesn't count: we need the brand/model of the webcam itself) Before you choose one of the solutions, take pictures of all your BIOS screens (or painstakingly write them on a piece of paper, or if you have an ...

I had the problem with d showing the desktop and other single key issues. I found that I made a mistake in my "~/.vnc/xstartup". I had 2 window managers configured: "startxfce4 &" and "x-window-manager &". After I removed the later, I no longer had the single key issues.

For those who do not have /active-card, it is not needed anyway, nor is the xfce4-mixer. The sound is going through PulseAudio and therefore the "default" device is selected by the configuration of PulseAudio, and xfce4-volumed will only change the "default" outputs volume. However you can use PulseAudios configuration tool for this, pacmd. $ pacmd Welcome ...

You could add global shortcuts to write special chars. I use this often for my German keyboard layout with Ubuntu (on Windows this work out of the box). I added the following shortcuts: Shift+Enter+7 to write the letter { Shift+Enter+0 to write the letter } Shift+Enter+8 to write the letter [ Shift+Enter+9 to write the letter ] To add these shortcuts ...

Finally I was able to bind on the dead grave key, the issue was due a keyboard language conflict. You can try to binding on two different characters that represent the dead grave key, namely: dead grave and the ` character, and one of them will win. The character that worked for me was the ` character.

In order to disable global <Super>p keybindings, and NOT any other media keys (tested in Ubuntu 15.04) I had to 'emtpy' the following dconf keys.

Sorry for posting this as an answer but the comments don't give enough space and mark-up to properly test whether these keys work or not. If it works, I'll delete this answer and we'll go hunting for what is wrong in software. Remember that Ctrl+Alt+F7 is your friend! That is the key combination to press to get back here so you can read the rest of the ...

Yes, the tabs are numbered 1-10. Keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Fn gets you to the nth tab. So, Ctrl+F1 gets you to the first tab, Ctrl+F2 gets you to the second tab, Ctrl+F3 gets you to the third tab, and so on.

There is a plugin which restores the expected Ctrl+Tab, Ctrl+Shift+Tab tab switching. It was originally created for Gedit 3, but I updated the plugin for Gedit 3.8 and above.

ibus causes me nothing but headaches. Everytime that I try to change the settings, when I reboot, the Ctrl+Space comes back. Here's my solution: sudo apt-get purge ibus sudo killall ibus Now everything works until Ubuntu decides their next stupid thing. Maybe the letter 'o' will map to turning off the computer?

You can disable vim from the tools menu (instead of uninstalling it) For those who actually use vim (which is awesome) - there is an issue with copying from the run console and other outputs (this is how I stumbled onto this question), ctrl-c doesn't work there. The issue is that vim is wrapping those panels too, so you can just highlight and press 'y' :)

Answers: Don't use Alt+key, but Alt+Super+key or Ctrl+Super+key as a lot of Alt keys have been reserved over the years. It's a reserved keystroke for opening the window menu in applications since 1987 in the CUA. It's like Alt+F4: that's close and "cannot" be re-defined. This is hard-coded in Unity. Again: "cannot" be done. Now having said this, It's ...

What you want to do will not work as: for the Shift and Ctrl: You cannot bind mouse-down and mouse-up events to key-press and key-up events only to keys... for the PgDn: Mouse buttons don't have a repeat function: only mouse-down and mouse-up (no "mouse-repeat") Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news (but at least, you will not be losing any more time ...

Boring answer. Until somebody else offers a better explanation, this is a case of hardware failure. I replaced the problematic keyboard and no more keycode 180 following a keycode 37. Curious thing, not in favor of hardware failure diagnostic, is that the same problematic keyboard don't generate the keycode 180 when CTRL is pressed on the other PC where I ...

Using the Static Application Switcher made my Alt+Tab work, but Alt+Shift+Tab was somehow bound to a different application switcher, which meant that I could not go back and forth by keeping the Alt key down, and alternating between Tab and Shift+Tab.

Check this stack overflow question about a similar problem. But my advice is to keep Ctrl+k and Ctrl+r as is and get used to, because Ctrl+k is used to erase from the cursor to the end of the line which is a very useful shortcut.

You can use the shell builtin command "bind" for that. What you specifically want is: bind '"\C-k":"\C-r"' Put that in your ~/.bashrc file and it should work each time you open up a shell. For more details checkout the bind section at http://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/Bash-Builtins.html
