Unity's keyboard shortcut screeen has vanished
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 12, 2012
After updates yesterday (12.04 Ubuntu), the pop-up that lists the keyboard shortcuts is no longer visible. I talking about the pressing and holding the "super" (windows) key. The numbers on the launcher apps still appear, though.
My wife is trying to adapt to using unity on her new laptop (no mouse) and getting this shortcut hint screen back would be a big help. Any ideas how to get it back?
VS2010 CTRL+L keyboard shortcut has stopped working
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I use CTRL + L all the time to delete rows in visual studio, but the shortcut stopped working recently. My symptoms are similar to the ones described here: VS2010 CTRL+M keyboard shortcut has stopped working after the Bing Toolbar was installed.
CTRL+M works for me, and I don't have Bing installed. I have installed a few apps recently, including Paint.NET, Gimp, and Directory Opus, all three of which have have CTRL+L keyboard shortcuts that are working as expected.
Has anybody run into this issue and know how I can resolve it?
[SOLVED] path to libreoffice writer and calc Xubuntu 12.04 keyboard shortcut
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 18, 2012
I have installed libreoffice suite on Xubuntu 12.04.
I can make a keyboard shortcut for the libreoffice "suite", but cannot find the path to writer and calc, so I can setup a single keyboard shortcut to launch Libre Office writer, for example.
Since there is an app launcher for Writer, Calc, Draw and Impress in the Menu, there has to be a way to set up shortcuts, esp for Writer or Calc.
EDIT: SOLVED: don't know the path but the command is
Change a keyboard Shortcut Ubuntu 11.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2011
Before upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10, I had my printscreen key pointing to ksnapshot. After my upgrade my printscreen key is firing up a different snapshot program. How do I change this to start up ksapshot?
Ksnapshot allows me to draw a retangle of different sizes to create a snapshot. This is easier than editing a snapshot of the entire screen.
I went into the system >> keyboard >> Shortcuts >> Screenshots, but I cannot change what program is triggered by the clicking of the Printscreen key.
Appreciate any help, thanks...
Keyboard shortcut to "show desktop"

Xfce 4.10 has an icon in a panel that can be clicked to minimize all open windows and show the desktop. But I want a keyboard shortcut that will do the same thing. Is it possible?
Keyboard shortcut for moving a window to a specific display
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 23, 2010
I noticed that while Compiz has every keyboard shortcut imaginable for moving windows between desktops, there's no shortcut for moving a window to a specific display when using dual monitors. I thought I'd publish my own solution to this problem here.
So far, I've found the best method is to use the command line automation tool: xdotool - http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/...xdotool.1.html
Here's what I did:
Test out the xdotool in a new terminal window using this command
xdotool windowmove `xdotool getwindowfocus` 100 100
This should move your terminal window 100 pixels in from the top left of the leftmost display.Find out the top-left coordinates of your rightmost display by using the Nvidia X Server Settings tool in Main menu > Administration or via the terminal:
Go to X Server Display Configuration and click the rightmost Display in the layout section. Its position offset should be displayed in the position field. Make a note

fix: launch media player keyboard shortcut
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 22, 2006
I decided to find out how I could go about changing which media player opened up when I pressed the Gnome "launch music player" keyboard shortcut. I found that there was a bug filed because there is no way to change it in Ubuntu.
There is actually a very simple way to get around this bug. This requires either uninstall rhythmbox or renaming /usr/bin/rhythmbox and then creating /usr/bin/rhythmbox as a symbolic link to the executable of the music player you want to launch. I didn't want rhythmbox so I used apt-get to remove it, but I'm sure many users would rather rename the executable for rhythmbox.
Here is what you could do to make my media launch key quodlibet:
Terminal keyboard shortcut
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2011
I really cannot find this anywhere. What I want to do is learn how to make the keyboard shortcuts using System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts. I can't find how to open the terminal with it. (Yes, I know there is already a preexisting shortcut for it. I just want to know how to add another shortcut for it.)
Terminal keyboard shortcut
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2012
After installing Ubuntu 12.04 on two PC's (One even multiple times) the default open new terminal keyboard shortcut ctrl+alt+t does not work. Had to use a workaround and make a personal shortcut to open x-terminal-emulator. Anyway to fix this and make the default work again?
