comment How to make keyboard work like OSX System Wide?
hey! this looks very promising... i've installed, and can run the above xte command from the terminal, and it outputs "^C" in the terminal... which looks good to me! but when i map it in Keyboard Shortcuts, it doesn't do anything... I tried mapping another program to Meta-C, and it works fine (ie launches fine when I press Meta-C). I also tried specifying the full path to xte (/usr/bin/xte) and that didn't work either... can you try this on your system and see if it works? thanks!

hey @danizmax - thanks for the reply... but I'd specifically like to avoid changing the complete behaviour of Ctrl... I find it screws with other things if I do... I'd really like to map just the keyboard shortcuts that I mentioned in the post... thanks though!

i took a look at this, and can't see how to get it to work... It looks like it maps to the same options available in "System/Preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts/Custom".... For example, how would I get it to paste using this approach? It looks to me like I can only configure it to run applications... thanks....

and for what it's worth, I use the exact same PC keyboard on my macmini as well, as I bought it second hand and it didn't come with a mac keyboard. thanks again.

hi leo... i'm not using a Mac keyboard with Ubuntu though... I'm using a standard PC keyboard, ie "Generic 105 key (intl) PC" did try switching my "keyboard model" to Vendor Apple / Model Apple but that didn't seem to make any difference.... I also tried Vendor Apple / Model Macbook and that didn't seem to change anything either...
