I stumbled upon a terminal cheat sheet here and I started wondering if there was anyway to display this in Ubuntu 12.04, much in the way that holding the [Super] key displays tips for window managing and shortcuts.

Is there any app or desklet or something that provides this effect? I'm very new to Linux and this quick reference would be very useful to me.

  • Why don't you just save that image on your Desktop and open it whenever you want to take a look? – terdon Mar 12 '14 at 12:42
  • That would be one way of doing it, but I was wondering if I could simply map a keyboard shortcut to it or something. – Joum Mar 12 '14 at 12:47
  • I managed to do it with Compiz/Shortcuts to run shotwell filename.jpg but it looks kinda clunky. It serves it's purpose, but I wondered if there was a cleaner alternative... – Joum Mar 12 '14 at 12:55
  • Not really, not if you want to display that image at least. There may be an app for this but I doubt it. Not much point in it really since you can always just open an image or equivalent. – terdon Mar 12 '14 at 12:56
  • The image was to illustrate what I meant. The effect I'm looking for is displaying something like Unity's Desktop Shortcuts overlay. – Joum Mar 12 '14 at 12:57

Essentially, you're looking for this app http://www.mediaatelier.com/CheatSheet/ but for ubuntu. I was also hoping to find something like this.
