My new (several months old) Teclast f5r laptop has a
very small keyboard without pg-up/dn home/end ins/del etc.
I installed -current64 dual booting with the pre-installed
win10, but haven't been able to find any ctrl-??? or alt-???
keys that act like pg-up/dn etc. So what files do I edit,
and what do I put in them, to create keyboard shortcuts
for all the missing keys?
Most programs have some alternative of their own. i.e. C-v/M-v in emacs.
Space and shift-space should work in most browsers and pdf readers.
To do it in general I guess you can edit $HOME/.xbindkeysrc and you
will need to keep running xbindkeys. Or try with xmodmap.
This in $HOME/.xbindkeysrc should work (assuming you have function keys)
"xdotool key Next"
control + F12
Thanks for the info. Yeah, I guess I'll have to install xbindkeys
or use (the preinstalled) xmodmap. When I tried googling
"linux keyboard shortcuts" (and similar) before posting,
almost all the hits were about ubuntu, which apparently
has a screen users can navigate to and easily create
all the keyboard shortcuts they want. So I was hoping for
some similar slackware setup, maybe in the extra/ directory,
but nothing like that seems to exist as far as I can tell.
emacs not a problem. I use it and vi(m) a lot, but not so
much on this very small-and-cramped uncomfortable keyboard.
But the f5r's the perfect size to carry along in my Coach
portfolio as a "portable library", with about 6500 pdfs
of papers and books I've downloaded over the years.
Firefox's "preview in firefox" preference works pretty
well, but it doesn't recognize the f5r's touchscreen,
except along the scrollbar. Setting the preference to
"ask" and "open with okular" involves an extra keystroke,
but okular recognizes the touchscreen inside the window.
But neither seem to have an alternate pg-up/dn, at least
not that I could discover by trying pretty much every
conceivable keystroke combination.
P.S. glad to hear you solved your eth0/1 problem.
