Hey, so I installed Xubuntu 11.10 on an Acer Aspire One 722 and there a few things that I cannot seem to figure out:
- keyboard shortcuts made through Settings>Keyboard>Application Shortcuts seem to be forgotten every so often; upon opening up the dialog again, and re-establishing the key combination, the shortcut it then removed from the list completely, making me have to add it again. What is weird about this is that the shortcut remains in the XML file, until it is strangely removed from the list after re-establishing the key combination. Also, using "xfdesktop --reload", or "killall xfdesktop", does not work in re-establishing the shortcuts in the XML file.
- more specifically, is there a way to establish keys to control the volume? Right now, I map the volume-up/volume-down keys using the Application Shortcuts (mentioned above), but it is forgotten quite often. It is using "amixer -c 1 -- sset Master playback".
- It seems that using "xmodmap -e "clear Lock"" does not disable the caps-lock key. Why would that be? Though, I can use "xmodmap -pke" to output a config file, edit it to clear the caps-lock key (key 66), and load it with xmodmap.
