I face the same issue. The magic trick is in the order of the keys. You have to: press and hold Ctrl press and release Shift release Ctrl If you release the Ctrl before Shift, or use any other order, you will face the issue. Pressing those keys together at the same time makes the order random. BTW. It doesn't depend on the WM at all. It seems to be ...

RandR may fit your needs. You want to have a look at the --rotate option: xrandr --output LVDS --rotate left You can ask for output devices using xrandr -q.

You can use the setleds command to change the keyboard leds. setleds -num -caps -scroll You'll need to run this from a script executed during shutdown. How to do this depends on what init system your system uses.

Ok, after a sleepless night of googling and trying things out (like reinstalling unity and the x drivers), I decided to try out Intel's approach. Apparently they officially support linux and they have a graphics driver installer (link below). After downloading and installing everything started working again. I'm in Ubuntu heaven again. Enjoy! ...

I think you want some variant of vnc. It runs an X server on Linux machines and the result can be displayed remotely. If you don't want to see the screen anywhere use the older answers about headless X servers.

Depending on your xrandr you could use this api to use multiple monitors, as damien said you the better way to solve this situation is using : xrandr --output VGA1 --auto --left-of LVDS1 asuming that your first screen is LVDS1 and you want to use your VGA1 port. --auto is for autodetection of recommended resolution.

You need to define a new xkb type. You can see examples in your xkb/types directory (usually /usr/share/X11/xkb/types). There you can define arbitrary combinations of modifiers to get different levels of shifting. For your problem, you can use something like this: type "C_A_to_L3" { modifiers = Control+Alt+Shift; map[None] = Level1; ...
