I'm used to working with os x on apple computers. I need os x key bindings / keyboard shortcuts, two finger scrolling and the trackpad of this device to not respond to my hands resting on the keyboard... any mac users who have successfully made the switch to ubuntu without going insane, please help.
I just installed ubuntu on an asus laptop and there are a few things driving me insane:
The trackpad on this laptop is located where my hands normally rest... so while i'm typing in order to keep focus on the thing i'm typing i have to essentially hover above the keyboard. I need to fix this problem. How do? I don't even know how to phrase that in a way that makes googling the answer possibwle.
I need the alt key on this computer to serve the function of the command key on a mac.
I need os x key bindings. Thankfully the alt + tab command functions the same way as the app switcher on a mac but... i need to be able to hit alt + spacebar and have it launch the ubuntu equivalent of spotlight.
I do not know how to scroll on this computer. There is no scroll thing on the trackpad. Is there a way to turn enable this trackpad to be a multi-finger recognizing trackpad?
I've tried: this post and the posts he mentions. pommed is running but it doesn't seem like it's doing anything.
A lot of these problems I haven't been able to solve because I don't know the correct phrasing or terminology to get relevant search results in google or even here.I feel like there has to have been someone in the history of ubuntu who came from a mac environment and made ubuntu feel like os x.
