Remap arrow keys to win+ijkl on linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 20, 2010
How can I remap arrow keys to windows key + ijkl? I can do this easily in Autohotkey on windows, but I'm struggling on Ubuntu.
I'd really like the solution to work independently of whether I'm using a window manager or not, and to involve modifying as few files as possible; I work on a lots of different machines and am always building new ones, so would like to minimise reconfig effort.
I've tried to understand .Xmodmap, but couldn't make it work (was hard to find detailed docs on modifier keys).
Am also considering win+hjkl, but am probably not that hardcore!
(Same question asked on Superuser here)
Is it possible to use arrow keys alone to expand tree node in package explorer in Eclipse on linux?
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 25, 2013
When using Eclipse I browse through the package explorer tree using the keyboard arrows a lot.
In Windows I can expand a collapsed node by pressing the → key. In Linux I need to press Shift + →. Is there a way to reconfigure this so that Shift is not required?
Linux vi arrow keys broken in insert mode

My arrow keys don't work in vi in insert mode at home, they just each insert a newline and a capital letter, like 'A'. Is there a way to fix that?
Arrow keys in vim (linux) in insert mode broken for me
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
When I use the arrow keys in vim in insert mode I get letters inserted instead of movement.
Up produces an A
Down produces a B
Left products a D
Right produces a C
Does anyone know what would cause this?
Thanks in advance
Remap Win, Ctrl and Alt keys on Linux
location: linuxexchange.com - date: December 4, 2015
How can I remap (swap) modifier keys system-wide on Linux?
I want to install Debian Jessie on my PC to use it with Emacs. I have a MacBook with Emacs and use it primarily. Here is how keys are arranged on laptop:
fn ctrl alt cmd spacebar cmd alt
fn is unused in my Emacs workflow, other keys configured as listed below:
ctrl acts as Hyper
alt acts as Meta
cmd acts as Control
These configuration eases for me Emacs experience (big thumb hits Control cmd key) and I got used to this kind of key bindings.
by default alt is used as Meta, while ctrl is used as Control, the keys are swapped and big thumb lays on Meta
I want to configure my keys on Linux same way, here is what I have on my PC's keyboard:
ctrl win alt spacebar alt win menu ctrl
So, to correspond to my laptop keys, I want win keys to be mapped to Alt modifier, and alt keys to be mapped to Control modifier. In this case ctrl could be used as Super modifier, while menu could be kept untouche
12.10 arrow keys resize window's size in VNC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 26, 2012
i've got an headless ubuntu 12.10 server, i connect onto it with my Chicken Of Vnc client
from a Mac Book Pro.
When i use the terminal inside my VNC session (full screen mode), the up arrow key doesn't browse the commands
history as usual, but it resizes the terminal window..
How do i avoid such behavior?
Experienced the same issue with VNC Client on Windows 7. So maybe it's something wrong in my vncserver settings...
Thank you in advance

How to remap the keys with a higher code 255 without /lib/udev/keymap ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 20, 2013
Hi , sorry for my english, I will try to explain my problem...
Many applications doesn't work with high (> 255) key code (like the key configuration in kde, xev or other applications...), so I remapped the keys.
Before Saucy, I changed the special keys of my keyboard with /lib/udev/keymap like this :
1) Keys identification :
sudo /lib/udev/keymap input/event3
> scan code: 0xC1021 key code: zoomreset => 100%
> scan code: 0xC101F key code: zoomin => zoom -
> scan code: 0xC1020 key code: zoomout => zoom +
> scan code: 0xC0192 key code: calc => calculator
2) Choose keys name available in /usr/include/linux/input.h file :
define KEY_PHONE 169
define KEY_SPORT 220
define KEY_SHOP 221
define KEY_WWW 150
3) Remap keyx with /lib/udev/keymap :
sudo /lib/udev/keymap input/event3 0xC1021 phone
sudo /lib/udev/keymap input/event3 0xC101F sport
sudo /lib/udev/keymap input/event3 0xC1020 shop
Arrow keys in nethack
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 21, 2004
this is driving me nuts...at least at the moment i do not want to learn how to use the hjkl method of movement in the linux version of nethack...i want to use the arrow keys. yet the i cannot figure out for the life of me how to get the arrow keys to work. yes i can use the number_pad command...but that doesn't enable the arrow keys.
how can i get this to work?
