I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04.2 on my laptop: Asus Zenbook Pro UX501VW.

In my laptop's keyboard the End key is located in the numpad alongside the key 1.

In Windows, when I want to go to end of line I need to press Shift + End (NumLock should be turned on).

I noticed that in Ubuntu when I am pressing Shift + End it goes to the end of the line BUT it also selects all the text from the current position of the cursor to the end.

How can I fix it so it only goes to end of the line without selecting text? (like Windows)

I already tried to do this:

XUbuntu: Make Shift+NumPad work like Windows

And it didn't work.

Please help me :-)


You can view edit and reassign the keyboard keys with GSettings, bellow is a link to the manual page for details.

gsettings - GSettings configuration tool http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/xenial/en/man1/gsettings.1.html

  • Can you please explain me how to configure and use GSettings in my particular problem? – Alon Yosef Mar 26 '17 at 19:06
