    Keyboard shortcuts

    USEFUL KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS

    There are probably a lot of places on the net where these are published, but why not one more time... If you guys have some more, lets collect em here.


    General keyboard shortcuts

    Ctrl+A = Select all (In Documents, Firefox, Nautilus, etc, not Terminal)
    Ctrl+C = Copy (In Documents, Firefox, Nautilus, etc, not Terminal)
    Ctrl+V = Paste (In Documents, Firefox, Nautilus, etc, not Terminal)

    Ctrl+N = New (Create a new document, not in terminal)
    Ctrl+O = Open (Open a document, not in terminal)
    Ctrl+S = Save (Save the current document, not in terminal)
    Ctrl+P = Print (Print the current document, not in terminal)

    Ctrl+E = Send To... (Send the current document to an email recipient or remote location, not in terminal)
    Ctrl+W = Close (Close the current document, not in terminal)
    Ctrl+Q = Quit (Quit the application, not in terminal)

    Ctrl + Alt + F1 = Switch to the first virtual terminal
    Ctrl + Alt + F2(F3)(F4)(F5)(F6) = Select the different virtual terminals
    Ctrl + Alt + F7 = Switch to current terminal session with X

    Ctrl+Alt++ = Switch to next X resolution (Depends of your X configuration)
    Ctrl+Alt+- = Switch to previous X resolution (Depends of your X configuration)

    Ctrl + Alt + Backspace = Kill X server

    Alt+Tab = Switch between open programs
    Printscrn = Print sreen


    Command line / Terminal shortcuts

    Ctrl+C = Kill process (Kill the current process in terminal, also used to copy elsewhere)
    Ctrl+Z = Send process to background
    Ctrl+D = Log out from the current terminal. In X, this may log you out after a shuting down the emulator.

    Ctrl+A = Home (Move cursor to beginning of line)
    Ctrl+E = End (Move cursor to end of line)
    Tab = List available commands from typed letters (Ex: type iw and click tab, output = iwconfig iwevent iwgetid iwlist iwpriv iwspy)

    Ctrl+U = Delete current line
    Ctrl+K = Delete current line from cursor
    Ctrl+W = Delete word before cursor in terminal (Terminal only, also used to close the current document elsewhere)

    Arrows up and down = Browse command history
    Ctrl+R = History search (Finds the last command matching the letters you type)

    Shift+PageUp / PageDown = Scroll terminal output
    Ctrl+L = Clears terminal output
    Shift+insert = Paste


    Misc

    Mousewheel click or 3rd mouse button = Paste selected text (Select any text in any window and paste where you want. Terminal / Firefox / Gnome apps)

    They let you change the screen resolution, but I guess those depends of your X config. I'll correct it with a note.

    Thanx

    Re: Keyboard shortcuts

    WOW thank you for the link to how to change my keyboard shortcuts to the ones like photoshop. I was a pretty experienced photoshop user on windows and when I switched to linux I had to re-learn all the commands, which I haven't even scratched the surface of. This will make my life a lot easier.

    Did you ever work this out? I just nuked the short cut for F1 accidently and I'm not sure what it was before.
