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 ...
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:
(or some other text editor) and inside that file paste the following content:
To open terminal press super + T
Super key = Windows key
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.
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....
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 ...
Building on @Fratink's answer, I ran these commands to fix the issue. (For some reasons, the dconf-editor wasn't working for me.)
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-down AudioLowerVolume
gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys volume-up AudioRaiseVolume
gsettings set org.gnome....
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, ...
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.
You can put the 'Desktop' docket to Plank (the dock application).
Ctrl+Right 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/...
Ok, i searched deeper into the source code for pantheon-files and found these :)
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
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 ...
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 ...
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".
