If you installed keyconfig, but you can't find the "Send Now" option: 1) Open Thunderbird 2) Start composing a new message (in a new window) 3) In the main Thunderbird window, go to the Tools menu > Keyconfig 4) At the top of the Keyconfig window, there is a dropdown box, with one entry for each open Thunderbird window for example: - Inbox - Write (no ...

On Ubuntu, you have to use AltGr. This key is also the one you can/should use in Windows, but as Windows predates the AltGr key, they (still) treat AltGr and the combination Ctrl+Alt the same way (most of the time) whereas Ctrl+Alt is used for navigation under Ubuntu.

Imho it's a feature, I always use it since it's faster (I don't have to move my fingers from the arrow keys to return). Though it's strange that it isn't mentioned in the manual, they only write about return...

For me, disabling Ctrl+Q shortcut system-wide is not the perfect solution, because it prevents applications other than Firefox, Chrome etc. to be notified when you use that shortcut - for example, IntelliJ IDEA uses Ctrl+Q as a default binding to show quick documentation pop-up. If you are looking for a Firefox-only solution, I highly recommend Disable ...

Bash has that but it isn't bound to any key by default. Add the line Control-o: overwrite-mode to your $HOME/.inputrc or /etc/inputrc to use Ctrl+o to toggle between insert mode and override mode. See the READLINE section in the Bash manpage for more.

Not what you asked for directly, but you can use various forms of history interaction to simplify your task: $ cat path/to/dir/file01.txt cat: path/to/dir/file01.txt: No such file or directory $ different-command !$ different-command path/to/dir/file01.txt bash: different-command: command not found $ cat !$:s/1/2/ cat path/to/dir/file02.txt cat: ...

I dealt with this issue by running xbindkeys in terminal on startup! Add Terminal=true in your .desktop file.

Ctrl+Insert for 'copy', Shift+Delete for 'cut' and Shift+Insert for 'paste' also works on most places, including GNOME terminal.

stty intr b Will make the b key send an interrupt like control c. Take a look at man stty for setting up/changing terminal settings like that.

Finally worked this out. The alt+number conflicts with gnome-terminal's keyboard shortcuts to switch between tabs. That was always the case, but in older versions of gnome-terminal the combo would switch tabs if there were tabs to switch to and switch IRSSI windows if there weren't. If you disable or re-map the "Switch to Tab ..." shortcuts (at Terminal > ...

As an alternative to installing dconf-editor and having to fiddle around with your mouse so much, you can also do this from terminal. To create the current-workspace-only value: dconf write /org/gnome/shell/app-switcher/current-workspace-only 'true' To erase it, going back to default settings: dconf reset ...

You can place a small script that checks the current state under a shortcut key, and make it subsequently switch to the other state. This works in a lot of situations, eg toggling the trackpad, toggling visibility of (many) indicator icons etc. (see EDIT, down in the post) The script below does that: #!/usr/bin/env python3 import subprocess key = ...

I have a solution. All what you need is, to start this watcher script: #!/bin/bash keySwitchApplication="switch-applications" keySwitchApplicationBackward="switch-applications-backward" backupSwitchApplications="$(gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings "$keySwitchApplication")" disableSwitchApplications="$(gsettings get ...

One ugly hackish way comes to mind... Keyboard setting should be stored in: ~/.config/dconf/user So if you have two files, one where Alt+Tab is system wide enabled, and the other where Alt+Tab is globally disabled, you could theoretically swap them. Simple script which would: Backup Alt+Tab Enabled Copy Disabled Alt+Tab over Enabled Alt+Tab Run Emacs ...

It's a bug reported for all Ubuntu like distributions (probably happens to other distros too). Mysql is using editline lib instead of readline and that's breaking a lot of features we are used to, like ctrl + ← or ctrl + → to move between words, ctrl + r to reverse search, or even writing unicode characters is not possible. Even when he bug is flagged as ...

Run sudo update-alternatives --set x-terminal-emulator $(which gnome-terminal.wrapper) The system has x-terminal-emulator , which is symlinked to a particular program. When you've installed terminator , that symlink has been somehow changed to terminator. The command above will restore that to gnome terminal.

A couple of things - you wouldn't edit ~/.config/gedit/accels as root, it's a user file. Typically any edit to an accels file would require removing the ; from line for it to hold. In the case of gedit doesn't matter, you can't successfully edit that file. To actually change just edit the plugin itself, open ...

This answer applies only to Lenovo Z470, but there's probably a similar way to solve for other models. Found the answer here: lenovo z470 keyboard gets stuck From that question: Open your Terminal. $ sudo nano /lib/udev/hwdb.d/60-keyboard.hwdb In nano editor look for "lenovo" section (CTRL + w). On Ubuntu 15.04 there should be a section similar to the ...

Whiskermenu has the xfce4-popup-whiskermenu command. Whiskermenu will pop up when you run this command. (I don't know how to assign a shortcut to the command in Unity.)

It would be helpful to know what keyboard layout you are using! It might be that in your layout they are in 4th level of the keyboard entry. In that case, you should do AltGr + Shift + ? If you are using several layouts (icon on the top menu bar, near the time), you could try changing the keyboard layout to something different and set it back to your usual ...

Take a look at xmodmap. If you want to have the changes you did with it persist, create a script in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d and just add all the xmodmap commands you executed before, each on its own line, into it. The existing scripts there seem to be bash scripts, so start with the line #!/bin/bash You will need root permissions to create that file, ...

the issue is the description is a bit misleading (for me as well) .. ctrl_L .. doesnt mean ctrl+l but the left! ctrl button so you just have to press ctrl + alt (without any other char) on the left side of the keybord

At present there is no option to customize the capture behavior of host keystrokes in VirtualBox. It is either always "Auto Capture Keyboard" or never so. This can be defined in the application preferences from Virtual Box Manager preferences dialog. A convenient way to temporarily toggle host keyboard capturing is pressing the Host-key once. By default ...

Ok, this is apparently due to the fact that recent MySQL versions in Ubuntu aren't compiled against readline anymore, but editline instead.

This seems to me very related to: How do I assign a keyboard shortcut that uses AltGr as a modifier key? Keep Right Alt or AltGr as ISO_Level3_Shift and try to use it as Alt Modifier too. Where in your case is reverse: Keep Right Ctrl or Left Ctrl as Control Modifier and an extend it to be used a Level Shift. I couldn't get it to work in both functions, ...

AFAIK with Ubuntu 13.10, They have changed the Unity/Gnome layout managing way. So it does support multiple input engines and moved the control of layout change shortcut to higher level (window manager/settings daemon). setxkbmap works with the lower XKB level, settings daemon does not query for changes in the lower level. It just applies directly the ...
