I would like to improve my efficiency. I recall seeing some tool to use gui applications on linux with the keyboard, but I do not recall much else about it! Please advise how I can go mouseless(for the most part at least)
I can't seem to find much on this, despite how useful it would be.
I will be using windows 10 for a while, as I am interested in checking out unity5 engine. But I am a linux fan and I enjoy it as my main environment.
My setup before I switched to my new machine recently was ubuntu 15.04 with unity, I liked to hide the dock and use 4 workspaces(though I would prefer more, 4 was the most I was comfortable with on the old machine) and I used keyboard to to navigate workspaces and use the dock(I liked that I could just hold the superkey and press a number) I also had guake terminal startup automatically so I can just press a single key to get my terminal and another to fullscreen it. I use a single tv as my monitor, and I like to sit or stand a few feet back. As a result I ahve to extend my arm quite a bit to access the mouse, so it is greatly inefficient. And as a vimlover I can't stand it!
I liked to keep my Desktop clear(though I would use conky with a toggle option, if I can get that working)
Thats generally how I would use it. I don't want to use a i3 or anything like that.
Applications I would be interested in using in particular under a linux environment are things like unreal engine 4, gimp, inkscape, blender etc
I will add more info as requested.
Thanks for the answer, I used tmux and I will continue to do so, but I don't want to use a window manager like i3. I have been using vimium, though it still frustrates me at times, as it is far from perfect.
