hey! I wish I still did, but I'm working exclusively on Mac's now, as I've moved jobs ;-) So I don't have my old config around anywhere...

comment How do I install nagios?
Hey! I think the question was quite general, and I think the majority of people would want to a) install nagios and b) setup/install a configuration for monitoring a website. So to me, I think this fits within the general nature of this question. Thanks!

i completely agree, but I don't have time to copy it all in here nicely ;-) If someone wishes, they can copy it in here as another answer. The hard part was finding these concise summaries of how to do it! Thanks!

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...
