Caret notation usually represents characters, not key presses. They represent the 33 control characters in the ASCII character set. Only the following control characters exist: ^@, ^A through ^Z, ^[, ^\, ^], ^^ and ^_, plus ^?. The correspondence between control characters and their notation is that ^char is the character whose encoding is 64 less than ...

This could be an answer, but my original intention was to provide useful hints for you. If I read correctly, you are trying to bind a single key to several keys presses. In your given example, you want to remap End to Ctrl+E (this is easier to understand). Known approach: xmodmap and xbindkeys The classic approach is to check your keycode using xev and ...

Terminals transmit characters¹, not keys. When you press a key or key combination like Ctrl+Alt+Enter, the terminal has to translate it to a character or character sequence. There aren't nearly enough characters to represent all keys, so most such combinations are transmitted as escape sequences: a sequence of characters starting with the escape character. ...

I'm on fedora now yet I suggest you to read Archlinux's wiki carefully, all of it: Home and End keys not working. What I did to fix it: Press Ctrl-V Home, the escaped sequence for Home key is printed. It is not \e[4~ and \e[1~ as I expected to be by looking at /etc/inputrc. It was [H and [F Extract the terminal info infocmp $TERM >terminfo.src Open ...

urxvt don't seem to be the problem here (I'm using urxvt too). Maybe awesome blocks this key sequence. Try to open urxvt alone (without awesome). To do this open another tty (ctrl-alt-fN) and type something like xinit urxvt -- :1, and try the key sequence. If this doesn't show results, try to change to sh, for example, and test again. I was in a similar ...

As far as I know there's no dedicated shortcut for the aggregate menu. You could use the ctrlalttab.js helper (also known as the accessibility switcher). Hit Ctrl+Alt+Tab: and select Top Bar, this will focus the first element on the top bar (that is, the Activities button). You then navigate with right arrow to the system tray and use the down arrow to ...

From zsh, you could do something like: cmd="stty rows $LINES cols $COLUMNS; stty '$(stty -g)'; bash" STTY='raw -echo' cat > typescript.in | script -c "$cmd" Then you'd have what you typed in typescript.in and the output in typescript.

The issue here is that you are essentially removing the Windows keys from the modifier list with clear mod4. In order to have Caps Lock available as an additional modifier instead as a replacement of the Window keys, you would have to set it to a different modifier. You can use modifiers Mod1 through Mod5 in addition to Control, Shift and Mode_switch with ...

from digging through the XML file in Matchbox's Git repo: The window manager has redefinable shortcut keys which can be used to perform window operations or launch applications. The location of the config file is PREFIX/share/matchbox/kbdconfig, this can be overridden by the user having a ~/.matchbox/kdbconfig file. The config file is made up of one ...

Some logitech mice have programmable buttons. Some of those have onboard storage to make profiles stored on the mouse. If you have access to a computer that can run Logitech's mouse setup software, you could make the mouse's USB keyboard component send multimedia-key presses (I think with autorepeat), instead of handling it in software on the GNU/Linux ...

Unix doesn't exactly have a concept of “application”. Rather than using processes, toplevel windows would be a better indicator. They're easier to detect precisely, and you won't falsely detect applications of another user. Each window has a class that identifies its application. To see the class name for an application, run the following command in a ...
