I often use my keypad keys for navigation. I'd like to change my keyboard behavior so that, for example,

control + (keypad) page up

functions the same as

control + page up.

There's a similar option in Keyboard Layout -> Options -> Miscellaneous compatibility options that makes shift + (keypad) page up behave the same as shift + page up, but there is no such option for control. How can I do this?

  • By keypad do you mean the arrow keys or the number pad? – Seth Mar 28 '13 at 0:19

It may depend on the version one is using.

For Ubuntu 20.04, this is how to set keyboard shortcuts:

To change the key or keys to be pressed for a keyboard shortcut:

  1. Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.

  2. Click on Settings.

  3. Click Keyboard Shortcuts in the sidebar to open the panel.

  4. Click the row for the desired action. The Set shortcut window will be shown.

  5. Hold down the desired key combination, or press Backspace to reset, or press Esc to cancel.
