Quickly Show/Hide Hidden Files on macOS Sierra, OS X El Capitan & Yosemite | Ian Lunn - Front-end Developer
Since the release of macOS Sierra, when in Finder, it is now possible to use the shortcut:


Not sure if this actually (still) works. I'm pretty sure I restarted Finder.

xorg - how to type “smart quotes” (U+201C, U+201D) - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange |

With a Compose key:

Compose , " → „
Compose < " → “
Compose > " → ”
Compose < ' → ‘
Compose > ' → ’

You can enter the last two characters in either order, at least in most locales. There may be locales where it only works in the order Compose < " works or only in the order Compose " <.

If you need to press Shift or AltGr to enter some of these characters, you'll need to hold those modifiers down as usual. You can press and release Compose before the subsequent characters, or you can press Compose and keep it down, as you prefer.

Most keyboards don't have a key marked “Compose”, but you can configure one and your environment may already have one configured. On a PC, a popular choice is the “Menu” key between the right Windows key and the right Ctrl key. The keyboard settings of most desktop environment include an option to make this key or some other key a Compose key.

Looks like you need to install either or both of libdbus-1-dev and libdbus-glib-1-dev.

On later Ubuntus (18.x-ish) and elementaryOS Juno (5.0) you randomly needed to install gir1.2-gtksource-3.0, otherwise you get an error about namespaces not being available.

1. Click the place in your document or message where you want the character to appear.
2. Press Control–Command–Space bar. The Character Viewer pop-up window appears:

GitHub - peterldowns/iterm2-finder-tools: Open iTerm2 from the Finder |
You need to change the (bundled) Automator app to open a new window rather than a tab, if that's what you want by default.

As of 2019-09-05, I had to remove the "try" block and leave behind just the 'set newWindow to (create window with default profile)' so it wasn't trying to open a tab (invisbly) using the drop-down hotkey window.

Two separate services (one internal and one not) can be confusing · Issue #409 · quicksilver/Quicksilver · GitHub |
So I've started looking into this, since the ⌘⎋ shortcut doesn't work on the Mac at work. Interestingly enough, this is not the fault of QS, but the fault of the keyboard (?!?). The ⌘⎋ just doesn't seem to work AT ALL. I've installed key codes and when I press ⌘⎋ it doesn't register. All other shortcuts do. This is on 10.7.4, new Mac Mini with an Apple keyboard
(P.S. international English is so annoying. Where's the £ sign?!)

The intersesting thing, however, is that when QS simulates the ⌘⎋ keystrokes using carbon (in QSGlobalSelectionProvider.m invokeService) it does work (this is invoked when you use the 'current selection' object with the 'pull selection from frontmost app' option enabled.

Seeing as there seems to be this huge limitation with ⌘⎋ not actually registering as a keyboard shortcut, here's what I propose:

We remove the 'send to quicksilver' service
We keep the get current selection (internal) service, but rename it to something more obvious so as it isn't changed. e.g. Quicksilver Internal Selection (Private)
We make a new default trigger called 'get selection' that literally just does select current selection in command window. People would be told NOT to touch the ⌘⎋ shortcut in the keyboard preferences (if they do, things will) but to edit the trigger keyboard shortcut.
For those who still like the ⌘⎋ shortcut, and for whom it still works, since it'll still be enabled (as a 'private' service) you can still use that.
Added bonus: Using the current selection proxy works more consistently than the service in Finder (e.g. try the service on a folder in Finder when in column mode) so it should fix a few problems

Once we're down to one service, I'll start working on the few bugs with the 'current selection' proxy :)

Issues with Finder Selection (Proxies and Service) · Issue #485 · quicksilver/Quicksilver · GitHub |
Mentioned in IRC, but ⌥⌘G is "Grab 'n' Drop". It's a shortcut for "move the Finder Selection here". Hitting it should result in the interface showing [Finder Selection] ⇥ Move to… ⇥ [Quicksilver Selection], at which point you can hit ↩ to confirm.

keyboard shortcuts - Universal Access Zoom In/Out - elementary OS Stack Exchange
This still seems to work in Loki (0.4)--but is sometimes flaky?.
By default, elementary OS has a magnifier that can be used by pressing ⌘++ to zoom in and ⌘+- to zoom out.

Note that ⌘ refers to the "Super" key, which on your hardware might have a Windows logo, an Ubuntu logo, or the word "Command".

keyboard shortcuts - How does one swap two panes in Tmux? - Super User -
The swap-pane command can do this for you. The { and } keys are bound to swap-pane -U and swap-pane -D in the default configuration.

So, to effect your desired change, you can probably use Prefix { when you are in the right pane (or Prefix } if you are in the left pane).

The -U and -D refer to “up” and “down” in the pane index order (“up” is the same direction that Prefix o moves across panes). You can see the pane indices with display-panes (Prefix q, by default).

By default, its Ctrl+F6. However, its useful if you map you keys to Ctrl+Tab to switch between open editors like Windows.

You can change your preferred keys in Window>Preferences>General>Keys and change "Next Editor" to any key of your choice(Ex: Ctrl+Tab). Hope this is what you needed.

Get back the ctrl-alt-backspace behavior in Ubuntu | gHacks Technology News
NB: The 'dontzap' package doesn't seem to be in the Ubuntu >= 12.04 default repositories (maybe 'universe' wasn't enabled)?
If you don't want to install the dontzap application you can hand-edit your xorg.conf file to include the correct DontZap entry. To do this enter the following command to open up your xorg.conf file for editing:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf

What you want to do is add the following lines to the end of your file:

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "DontZap" "off"
