use numerical pad for shortcuts
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 30, 2015
first of all sorry for my English.
In firefox it is possible to use the numerical pad for shortcuts with numbers, for example Alt+1 to move to the first tab. But when I switch to another program like the terminal it doesn't work. Is there a possibility to enable that generally?
Can't Use Some Keyboard Shortcuts on 14.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 21, 2014
I'm running Lubuntu 14.04 LTS live (without installing) on my UFD. I can't "Alt+F2" or "Windows key (Super)+R" to run a command. I can use other keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+Alt+T, etc. I had Lubuntu 13.10 on my UFD the other day, and this keyboard shortcut and others worked. Also I don't have the "Keyboard Shortcuts" applet under "Preferences". I thought I tested 14.04 at home (can't remember), so maybe it's keyboard specific. I'm on another machine right now.

Can I use keyboard shortcuts to open a file with an application?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 28, 2011
I was playing around with kupfer, gnome-do, gnome-launch-box and was really disappointed that I couldn't just get a program to create launch triggers like Quicksilver for Mac. Kupfer seemed the closest, but was not stable on my system (could have been user error, anyway...) I finally gave up and am now satisfied with the (gnome desktop) built-in keyboard shortcuts in system preferences for launching applications.
What I need to do now is open files with a keyboard shortcut. Is there some way to append the command to open an application so that it opens a particular file in the application?
Any help, much appreciated!
GIMP error; menu bar options grayedout, can only use shortcuts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2014
Edit: The problem also affects other apps.
Hello, I'm running the latest version of GIMP on saucy. After attempting to install the GNOME Shell yesterday, I ran into a number of problems, among them this: I can open GIMP, but I cannot do anything via the menu bar. I can open files with it, I can use keyboard shortcuts, and I can draw, but that's all. When I open GIMP via the terminal, I get the following message:
(gimp:2444): Gimp-Widgets-CRITICAL **: gimp_device_info_set_device: assertion '(info->device == NULL && GDK_IS_DEVICE (device)) || (GDK_IS_DEVICE (info->device) && device == NULL)' failed
The 4-digit number at the beginning seems to change every time, but the rest stays the same. I've tried uninstalling GIMP (sudo apt-get remove --purge gimp) and reinstalling, but that didn't fix the issue. I have no idea what the error message means, so I'm hoping someone here will. Any help is appreciated.
Ubuntu 11.04: Can not ALT+Tab, or use Superkey shortcuts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 29, 2011
I'm using 11.04 with Ubuntu Classic.
I can not ALT+Tab anymore, or use any of the Super shortcuts.
I did not upgrade. I used clean install.
I can't use any Super key shortcuts either. In 10.10 I could use Super + A to show all windows, it was really handy, now I can't.
I have Compiz enabled and everything, along with the advanced config program. Where do I go to enable these features (if they are even in Natty at all?)
I have Expose and Desktop Wall module of Compiz enabled, by the way.
Strangely enough, it does work in Unity now, I don't know why. It does not work in Ubuntu Classic.
Where can I find Keyboard Shortcuts on Macbook Air for use in Linux (Fedora)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 29, 2015
Hi, all! So I am taking a Linux O/S class for my degree requirements. The book we are using is "Linux Bible" - 8th ed. by Christopher Negus. Per our instructor, I am accessing Fedora via Oracle VM VirtualBox. Negus refers to a Windows keyboard when he instructs us to enter, for example, Ctrl+Alt+F2 to open a virtual console. Where can I find a list of MAC keyboard equivalent key combos or will I have to assign them myself?
My instructor was no help with this question and told me I would have to scour the Internet which i have to no avail.
I have an assignment due and I can't follow along until I figure this out. Any help would be appreciated.
Red Hat/Fedora Vs Ubuntu For My Career Use
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2008
I want to work with GNU/Linux for the rest of my life, and I want to know which distro will help me in the future. I really like Ubuntu, but if getting Red Hat certified will make me more money/give me a better understanding of what companies want on their servers I will learn that.
So, any professionals out there? What did you learn and make money off of?
Oh just for clarification, I would like to focus my skills in networking, whether it be in a local or world wide sense.
Let's not turn this into a bashing thread. Keep it professional.
HOWTO Use Ubuntu As A Mac OS X Time Capsule
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 17, 2013
In past versions of Mac OS X, the built in backup tool, Time Machine was a lot less picky about where you back up your files to. You could even back up to a Samba file share if you enabled the "unsupported volumes" hack.
defaults write com.apple.systempreferences TMShowUnsupportedNetworkVolumes 1
But that ended with Snow Leopard. Starting with the release of OSX 10.7 Lion, Apple started cinching down on where you could back up your system to, ostensibly for security reasons. Now, with Mac OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion", it's gotten to the point where essentially the only places you can back up your system using Time Machine are either on another Mac OS X File Server or on an Apple Time Capsule. My assumption is that their intent is merely to bolster their hardware sales.
I don't know too many people who stay exclusively within the "walled garden" for all their computing needs. Certainly people with a lot more money to burn than me.
