#StackBounty: #keyboard #autohotkey #razer-mouse #razer-synapse How to bind F13-F24 keys to the 12 side buttons on Razer Naga?

Bounty: 50

I’m trying to use the Razer Synapse configuration app to bind the 12 number buttons send extra F keys from the 13..24 range, but I’m not having any progress. When I’m in the right menu, I can press F1 through F12 on my keyboard (or onboard keyboard) as usual, and it registers and works fine.

But because I don’t have any real F13+ keys, I’m using AutoHotKey to send them virtually, and that doesn’t work. If I try to send keys within F1..F12 range or any other common key, it works, so the AHK script is working, which means the Synapse software doesn’t seem to want to accept F13..F24 keys.

Just for reference, I’m using A:: Send {F10} autohotkey script code with different numbers, there’s nothing complicated about it.

Is there a way to bind the side buttons to F13-F24 keys? Maybe somehow without the Synapse app or by editing some of its config files and uploading the custom configuration into the mouse manually?

#StackBounty: #keyboard #libreoffice #keyboard-layout #google #internationalization How to use a virtual keyboard inside Libre Office W…

Bounty: 500

My current laptop has a standard (QWERTY) English-Hebrew keyboard that came with my Dell Latitude laptop; nothing is customized.

I need to use Thai letters in general and in a Libre Office Writer (LBW) document in particular.

My problem

I thought to install a Google Virtual Keyboard but I am not sure output would automatically be inside a document edited with LBW.

My question?

How to use a virtual keyboard inside Libre Office Writier?

That is to ask; This Gmail solution seems nice but how could I implement this or similar FOSS and Gratis solution (not necessarily by Google) in the OS layer?

#StackBounty: #linux #xorg #keyboard Bind key combinations to commands and suppress all others

Bounty: 50

I’m trying to make my keyboard function a bit like a stenotype (but not). I want to bind combinations of keys to commands and ignore the standard individual key presses.

I am on GNU/Linux, using Xorg. I don’t mind if the solution relies on Xorg.

Utilities like sxhkd and xbindkeys can bind key combinations to commands, capturing those events but I don’t know how I could make them suppress everything beside the specified key combinations.

Does anyone know how I could do this? Could you point me in the right direction in Linux generally, a utility, or something in a programming language? I know shell scripting, Python, and I am just beginning to learn C. This keyboard module for Python looked good but there’s currently no key suppression for Linux .

#StackBounty: #keyboard #icons #19.10 #debugging #logs Debugging Error Overlay Icon

Bounty: 100

I have an error icon that keeps showing up on by desktop (Ubuntu 19.10) at first I thought it was due to a key being pressed. Next, I thought my computer was being hacked.At this point I am completely clueless as to why this happening as I have applied fixes for all of my theories and the issue is still here. This started happening right after I tried installing a pinyin keyboard through fticx. I’ve since purged anything that has to do with a keyboard from my computer.

enter image description here

When I’m typing all of a sudden this icon shows up and I’m unable to type for seconds at a time. After the hiccup, the keys I pressed DONT appear. While it is frozen I can still use the mouse. I’m not getting any keystrokes when monitoring it and I cant match the event to any system, auth, or journald logs.

Completely baffled here. Can anyone give more information as to what this kind of error icon could indicate is wrong with my machine, or how I can figure out what it is, or how I can fix it?

[EDIT]: I was able to prevent the icon from appearing by disabling my keyboard, proving that it is a keyboard issue. Can anyone advise on how to reset my keyboard settings to the defaults. Keep in mind I have already tried resetting dconfig GNOME and ubuntu-desktop and this issue persists. Where might I find stray files or config files that would be the source of this issue?

#StackBounty: #keyboard #gnome-terminal #control-characters gnome-terminal: strange control characters on Alt key

Bounty: 50

I probably misconfigured something, but I don’t know what. In gnome-terminal, when I hit Alt (without any other key), it immediately sends ^[< to the terminal (I tested by hitting Ctrl+V before Alt). Since I use Alt+Tab a lot, this is very unfortunate, because the control sequence will, for example, move to the beginning of history or do strange stuff in vim
The Alt+Tab, however,
does still work and cycles through the windows as wanted.

What might be the reason and how can I restore the default behavior in gnome-terminal?

  • Kernel: 5.3.0-24-generic
  • Shell: bash 4.4.20

#StackBounty: #windows #windows-10 #keyboard #keyboard-layout #language Windows 10 – Windows Display Languages cause automatic keyboard…

Bounty: 100

I have troubles with Windows 10 keyboard settings. I wish to keep the only two languages and keyboards:

  • English (United States) – US Keyboard
  • Czech – Czech Keyboard

However, I see the following settings. The list of preferred languages is complete and there appear only 2 languages – these I want:

enter image description here

However, upon restarting, the keyboard is somehow set to 4 keyboards, which is annoying and I want to remove both United Kingdom-based keyboards:

enter image description here

I tried to list all the languages in the PowerShell using the command:

Get-WinUserLanguageList

Giving me the following output where only the wanted languages appear correclty:

LanguageTag     : en-US
Autonym         : English (United States)
EnglishName     : English
LocalizedName   : English (United States)
ScriptName      : Latin script
InputMethodTips : {0409:00000409}
Spellchecking   : True
Handwriting     : False

LanguageTag     : cs
Autonym         : čeština
EnglishName     : Czech
LocalizedName   : Czech
ScriptName      : Latin script
InputMethodTips : {0405:00000405}
Spellchecking   : True
Handwriting     : False

However, upon restarting, the United Kingdom variations of the both English and Czech are somehow imported (sometimes one of them).

I have also tried to remove the content of the following Registry folder with no luck:

HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTKeyboard LayoutPreload

How can I fix this issue? My only goal is to remove all languages and keyboards related to the United Kingdom at all.

My Windows version is:

  • Edition: Windows 10
  • Version: 1803 1903
  • Installed on 25/07/18 20/09/19
  • OS build: 17134.885 18362.356

#StackBounty: #keyboard #19.04 #msi MSI GS65 Stealth Thin 8RE less than symbol printing ç symbol

Bounty: 50

In Ubuntu 18.04 the keyboard worked very nicely. I selected either the “Spanish (Spain)” or “Catalan (Spain, L with dot)” and every key was fine. Even the less-than and great-than symbols, which for this laptop, the key is between the SPACE BAR and the ALT-GR keys.

However, after installing from zero (not updating) the Ubuntu 19.04, the less-than and great-than symbols aren’t working. They display the ç and Ç symbols whey I press them.

I have been searching around but haven’t really found anything that seems to help.

If someone can help, would be lovely! It’s awful not being able to code without these symbols 🙁

#StackBounty: #gnome #keyboard #shortcut-keys #keyboard-layout remap Caps + L to dash

Bounty: 100

I want to remap the four keys ()-= to Caps+jkl; respectively.
The idea is to not leave the home row for typing these characters which are very common in programming.

Any ideas how to go about it?

What I’ve tried already:

  1. https://github.com/simos/keyboardlayouteditor – Installation has syntax error
  2. https://www.bedroomlan.org/projects/evrouter/ – No support for multi keys
  3. editing /usr/share/X11/xkb/symbols/pc – I don’t see an option for combinations, and couldnn’t figure it out from the docs
  4. evdevremapkeys – no support as described in this issue
  5. xdotool – works but it’s very slow …
  6. Mapping directly in vim – that would be my fallback, tho I want this available system-wide

Any help appreciated, probably some guidance would be enough for me to crack this one.

Thanks!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m grateful that we have a touchscreen keyboard.

All the good keys are there for normal language…
