keyboard – Play / Pause button to answer phone calls

I listen to music on my iMac while working. When I get an incoming call (either FaceTime or a mobile call), I want to pause the music and then answer the call (either through the iMac or the phone). In a reflex, I always put the play / pause key on the keyboard (the shared key) F8), which does not interrupt the music at this moment, but sends it to the FaceTime app to answer the call.

Which means that I have no choice on which device I want to respond while the music continues to play in the background … I can not find a setting in either the Keyboard settings or the FaceTime settings to do this control.

How can I prevent FaceTime from using the play / pause button to answer the call?

Pairing Freedom keyboard with the Huawei Smart P

I'm trying to get my Freedom keyboard up and running with my Huawei Smart P.

Freedom keyboard

I turn on the keyboard. Then I turn on Bluetooth on the phone. Then I search for nearby devices. When the keyboard is turned on, the KEYBOARD device is in the device list. When the keyboard is off, the KEYBOARD device disappears, so I assume this device is my keyboard.

I choose KEYBOARD. Enter 0000 as the connection key. The phone now lists KEYBOARD among connected devices.

I had expected to finish now. But when I use the keyboard, nothing happens on my phone. Do I have to tell the phone somehow that it should also use the Bluetooth keyboard, or is a further step required?

Why is there no keyboard shortcut to maximize the current window under macOS Mojave by default?

I'm used to doing things with keyboard shortcuts. I recently switched from Windows to Mac and miss maximizing the current windowing features on Mac.

I searched for a solution and found that we needed to add shortcuts to the keyboard or use third-party tools to accomplish them.

However, I was curious to understand why such "basic / frequently used" functionality is not assigned a link by default.

I know that this question is primarily an opinion-based question, but I was wondering if there is a historical context for why that decision was made. If possible, we would appreciate references.

Keyboard – Win key (Create) shows Application Launcher in Kubuntu 18.04

I try to set up Left-win as a composition key in Kubuntu 18.04.4. Problem: When I press the button, the Application Launcher is displayed.

I read in this AU response that the link is set Alt + F1 for the launcher the ALSO is also assigned automatically victory-Key. apparently, victoryButton and Alt + F1 are somehow assigned?

System Preferences -> Hardware -> Input Devices -> Keyboard -> Advanced -> Compose Button Location -> Select Left Win

Also the content of / etc / default / keyboard:


# Consult the manual page of the keyboard (5).

XKBMODEL = "pc104"
XKBOPTIONS = "lv3: ralt_switch, compose: lwin"

BACKSPACE = "guess"

To press Left-win + e & # 39; or Left-win + & # 39; e leads in é, This only works sometimesas if there are some changes.

What I want (what I'm used to) is that I can push Left-win & # 39; e to get é, However, this leads to the popup of the Application Launcher 🙁

Maybe the question is: how can I unmap Left-win to Alt + F1?

Keyboard – How can I enter Lithuanian characters (eg, ì, m)?

This is an unclear use case, so I'm not surprised that nothing looks like it online. I already know how to type accent characters in general and how to change keyboards. However, I could not find a way, for. m with the Lithuanian, ABC Extended or US International PC keyboards. I thought Option-N followed by M would work in ABC Extended, but that does not work. Here is a complete list of the characters I would like to enter:

Note that only a part of it is a problem. For example, I can of course enter é in any of the above keyboard layouts.

Every advice is appreciated. I would prefer not having to select characters from the symbol selection table.

keyboard – error caused by spacebar

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS on a virtual machine (Virtual Box version 5.2.18 r124319 (Qt5.6.3)). I encode in C for Visual Studio code. Every time I enter a & # 39; = & # 39; input or a space (for example, a variable declaration) or a prefix character in front, the compilation does not work because the space appears to be recognized as a special character (see screenshot in the appendix).

Has anyone noticed this problem and can fix it?

Many thanks

physical keyboard use Japanese script on Android

I have a Logitec k480 connected to LG Stylo 4 via Bluetooth with Japanese and Spanish so I can switch between them. My problem is that I can switch languages, but the Japanese layout does not obscure romaji to kana and the spanish layout does not give any ñ! How can I fix this? edit spanish layout works now but japanese still does not convert with the hw-keyboard (on the on-screen keyboard that works fine of course)

Keyboard – Get an ir keytable to recognize an external Philips IR receiver

I have a Zotac ZBox that came with an MCE IR remote and has both internal and external IR receivers. I run Ubuntu 18.04. ir keytable sees the internal receiver but not the external. However, the system sees the external receiver. There are (some) key clicks recognized, eg. For example, the mute key that triggers the appropriate system action. So there must be a driver for the external receiver.

Due to the problem "(some) buttons" I think I have to provide my own Keymap ir keytable This will work all buttons for use with the Kodi HTPC software. Note that "(some) buttons" apply to both X11 – I know the problem with the key code> 255 – as well as Wayland.

How can I identify the external receiver with an ir keytable so I can provide a mapping table?

Google Docs says I'm using an Apple keyboard even though I'm not a browser (not a Chrome browser).

I'm using the Gnome web browser on Linux, which is my favorite browser. I have a problem with all Google Docs applications, which is assumed to be using an Apple keyboard when I'm not. This means that I can not copy / paste Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V because it is looking for something Key that I do not have. If I am and use Ctrl+ Ctrl+ it jumps to the beginning and the end of the line instead of jumping between words. This makes it difficult to work on something. Is there a way to manually set the input to the PC keyboard, or do I have to change something in my user agent string?

What is the best mobile keyboard for alphanumeric input types?

I have to set the most user-friendly keyboard for anyone who enters the license plate of his car.

In the country I'm developing for, these are alphanumeric (I do not know a country where they are not, I'm just saying).

I looked into the keyboard's visual guide on my platform and nothing satisfies my needs.

I find it very annoying when entering the number WW1E1E, that is a valid mark. And I'm fast on my mobile keyboard.

I can only imagine the frustration of someone who is inexperienced and has to switch Alpha and Numeric up to 4 times while entering a 7-digit long string.

Which keyboard type should I use?

Left side is iOS, right side is Android (where visible password is fine, but does not work with automatic capitalization and is hacky overall, I think).
