You can set the default terminal by changing the alternative for x-terminal-emulator. Installing gnome-terminal creates an alternative symlink so all you have to do is set it. sudo update-alternatives --set x-terminal-emulator /usr/bin/gnome-terminal.wrapper Edit: It seems like the shortcut implementation is not using the alternative, but rather a ...

To open terminal press super + T Super key = Windows key EDIT: To customize your shortcut key: Open System settings -- > Keyboard --> Applications Now select terminal on right side of window, then just press the shortcut key you want to assign. For example: If you want to assign ctrl+Alt+T After highlighting terminal on right side of window, press ...

The difference is that Super+Space is hardcoded right in to Slingshot. It does not check system settings for different keybindings. I grabbed the latest source code and had a look for the word "Super". I came across this in one of the source files: // Handle super+space when the user is typing in the search entry private bool search_entry_key_press (Gdk....

I personally like to use Hot corners to show the desktop. To do this, first install devilspie with: sudo apt-get install devilspie Then create a script file with: io.elementary.code ~/minimize.ds (or some other text editor) and inside that file paste the following content: (if (begin (not(is(application_name) "wingpanel"))) (if (begin ...

Go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts Choose Custom and click on the + sign. You'll be requested to enter a command. Type this as a command: screenshot-tool. Click on the Disabled string next to it. Press your Print Screen button. You'll get this dialog. Press the Reassign button.

Open the Terminal by holding Super and pressing T Run this command: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu "['Super_L', 'Super_R']" Either revel in the glory of your newfound shortcut, or change back by running: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu "['<Super>space', '<Alt>F2']"

Just in case someone else stumbles upon this issue, I managed to address my media keys issue with elementaryos loki by using dconf-editor and xbindkeys. First to identify your keys in terminal type sudo xbindkeys -k and press the the bind key on your keyboard and/or click under the window. You can use one of the two lines after "NoCommand" in ~/.xbindkeysrc ...

Actually this issue touches two different bugs in Loki: Printscreen "PrtScn" button doesn't actually take a screenshot Custom keyboard shortcuts not working, loki fresh install

SuperKey + Right/Left might be the easiest if your more of the casual user and are not fully using all the workspaces all the time. This will let you view the desktop.

Default shortcut for switching layouts is Alt+Space. If you’d like to use a different shortcut, you can set one in System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> Universal Access as “Next Keyboard Layout”. However, it is not possible to select shortcut Shift+Alt or Shift+Ctrl. You can do this through the terminal, but I strongly not recommend doing so, ...

just set org.pantheon.terminal.settings.follow-last-tab in dconf to true. Or you can execute in terminal: gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings follow-last-tab true

There are two easy options. Ctrl + right click on plank and go to preferences. There is a show desktop docklet. Hot corner solution. Install wmctrl sudo apt install wmctrl Then you can use wmctrl -k on in the custom command box.

Building on @Fratink's answer, I ran these commands to fix the issue. (For some reasons, the dconf-editor wasn't working for me.) Volume down gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-down AudioLowerVolume Volume up gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-up AudioRaiseVolume Mute gsettings set org.gnome....

You can put the 'Desktop' docket to Plank (the dock application). Ctrl+Left-click on the dock and select Preferences from the menu. In the Docklets tab you can find Desktop, just drag-and-drop it to the dock application.

I just posted this question in case others had the same problem as me. Here is what I discovered. The problem stems from SuperShiftLeft and SuperShiftRight already being assigned as shortcuts. Install dconf-editor and navigate to org > gnome > desktop > wm > keybindings. From this you will see that move-to-workspace-left/right is assign both SuperShiftLeft/...

You can disable save-exited-tabs and then Ctrl+D can be used for bash. Just run: gsettings set org.pantheon.terminal.settings save-exited-tabs false

In the Pantheon Terminal you can move between terminal tabs with Ctrl+Shift+← and Ctrl+Shift+→ respectively. You might as well be interested in List of keyboard shortcuts for Terminal

Ok, i searched deeper into the source code for pantheon-files and found these :) ("win.quit", {"<Ctrl>Q"}); ("win.new_window", {"<Ctrl>N"}); ("win.undo", {"<Ctrl>Z"}); ("win.redo", {"<Ctrl><Shift>Z"}); ("win.select_all", {"<Ctrl>A"}); ("win.bookmark", {"<Ctrl>D"}); ("win.find", {"<Ctrl>F"}); ("win.tab::...

As far as I know this isn't supported by elementary. If you really want this feature then you will have to write something custom. If you can trigger a script by hotkey (autokey etc) then you could run "wmctrl -l" and count the lines of output by piping into wc like so: "wmctrl -l | wc -l". Since plank and wingpanel are also counted you would write an if ...

When you have enabled that setting you can press AltGr+4 to create a ₹ Just tested it myself, you do not need to restart your computer or even exit the settings window. It just works. But I do agree that it is a bit assuming to just call the setting "Rupee on 4". Although it is rather intuitive on a Scandinavian keyboard-layout like mine, it might not ...

In System Settings > About There is a button "Restore Default Settings". You can use this to reset all system settings back to their factory defaults. This will not affect any application settings.

You can set slingshot to launch by only pressing the super key by typing the following command into your terminal: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu "['Super_L']"

So I futzed around with this for a day (gsettings, built-in shortcuts, xkb, xmodmap) and no turnkey solution is forthcoming, though I filed a feature request that might lead somewhere. In the meantime and short of rewriting the actual system shortcuts (which is the longterm solution), I'll try to list what I felt was the best way to approximate the OS X ...

To be able to use the F10 inside the terminal edit your settings.ini file at ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini and add the line: gtk-menu-bar-accel=""

By default, elementary OS has a magnifier that can be used by pressing ⌘++ to zoom in and ⌘+- to zoom out. Note that ⌘ refers to the "Super" key, which on your hardware might have a Windows logo, an Ubuntu logo, or the word "Command".

Often this is easier with the compose key. With the compose key configured you use key combos to produce special characters. For example: For ë: Compose + " + e For ẽ: Compose + ~ + e For ô: Compose + ^ + o For á: Compose + ' + a Note that you do not have to hold down the compose key; just press each key in order. To set the compose key Open "System ...
