But Ubuntu no longer uses xmodmap as instead uses xkb, which despite trying I could not find a way to remap the CapsLock combo (for one), not find anyone claiming to do so.
As my fingers are stiff, so that i must life up my hands to hit each keys, and land on the wrong one every other word, and as i usually do a lot of copy and paste, thus this is very important.
But I was able to partly get Debian to do this thru the GUI keyboard customization for at least Kwrite or similar, but have not gone back to try it on other apps across sessions. But I have been unable to do so for Xubuntu on an older laptop.
With about 12 docs open and 160 tabs, I do not shutdown often, but just sleep, but when to do reboot and load Linux i will give you a report, God willing.
It can be made to work trust me.
I suppose it may using that method in some distros, or another in another flavor, but i found none for Linux Mint/Xubuntu .
For shortcuts the DE typically provides hooks - like most DEs will come shipped with CTRL-ALT-T launching the terminal but for example you could do CTRL-ALT-F to launch Firefox or I have combos that move me around amongst my desktops etc.
But why do some distros not even provide the location via right click menu on an icon in the start menu, or a create shortcut and Send to desktop option from within folders, with the ability to assign keyboard keys to launch it right there, as under Windows?
Yeah the notion of purchasing licenses to run certain software on linux is often quite a foreign one. In a corporate setting it probably happens a lot. For home users - hmmm - not so much.
Indeed. Its the legal issue for me. You can get the Fluendo ONEPLAY Player for 35.00 though. But its license is only good for one OS.
Yet even now in Windows 10 the is no more Windows Media Center by default or license for DVDs. Microsoft now charges users $14.99 to download for the Windows DVD Player, though for a limited time it is free to all Windows 10 users upgrading from Windows 7 Home Premium, Ultimate and Professional, or Windows 8.1 with a Media Center.
