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
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....
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:
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 ...
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.
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....
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/...
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".
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 ...
