I found how to have different layouts on 2 different connected keyboards here, but I want to re-map the keys on a second keyboard for web development. Preferably, I'd have keys that would type out code snippets. However, if I can even re-map the keys on the second keyboard, I can do the code snippet hot-keys inside of my IDE.
Another idea/option would be to see the keyboard as a game controller.
After installing Ubuntu 12.04 on my ASUS G10AC, several keys on my keyboard (ASUS G01 KB) are not working at all. This includes both CTRL keys, both ALT keys, and both WINDOWS keys. When I use the keyboard layout utility I can see that pressing the CTRL and ALT keys correspond to using the left SHIFT key, whereas none of the WINDOWS keys gives any sort of response (no key is highlighted).
I just noticed that the media keys on my keyboard are not working: volume up, volume down, mute,...Also, ctrl+alt+L is not locking my screen.I'm wondering if this is a gnome-settings-daemon issue. g-s-d is running, and working in part because it sets my background, but why are none of these other keys working?Which application actually handles these keys?
I have reassigned my workspace switching keys to uper+h, +j, +k, and +l because the arrow keys are too cumbersome. They work perfectly except for +l which instead just locks my screen. This key combanation is very convenient for me as I don't need to move either hand from the homerow keys to switch between workspaces.
After upgrading to Gnome 3.10, my keyboard volume keys and screenshot key no longer register. In the keyboard shortcuts settings window, the bindings are still there, and if I reassign them, they seem to recognise the volume up and down keys on my keyboard. For some reason, using these keys still doesn't effect the volume.I've also tried this on more than one keyboard.
I have troubles with two of my keyboard's (PS/2) keys, those are right arrow and "]" (might be more, haven't been able to test the function keys). I've tried the keys in BIOS and they work well, so I doubt it's something hardware related. What I've also tried is to uninstall the driver and install it again, however that doesn't work, still the same problem.
My arrow up and right keys don't work in Grub or terminal, nor any applications opened from terminal. My cat likes to sit on my keyboard which has the tendency to make keys not work because they're laptop keys and cat hair + laptop keys = not working keys. However, I have noticed that the keys work in applications not starred through terminal.
