Hey Guys, thanks again for the replies. Sorry for the delay replying back to the thread had a busy morning today…
Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I followed your instructions and when I tested the keyboard layout by clicking the little keyboard button on the “layout Options” page all the key were registering correctly.
So I then went back to the keyboard shortcuts page and went to enter the new shortcut for the Gnome Terminal Launcher as “Ctrl+Alt+T”, but again when I did that I still only see **“Alt+T” **as the shortcut… But for some reason “Ctrl+Alt+T” is the ONLY shortcut that opens the Gnome-Terminal window… Not Alt+T, nor Ctrl+T, just Ctrl+Alt+T… Strange huh…?
I thought since the Terminal one ONLY works when I do "Ctrl+Alt+T" I was thinking that maybe it was working and just not showing the “Ctrl” portion of the shortcut, or something like that… So I went into Custom Shortcuts and added a new one for Gedit. I entered **“Ctrl+Alt+G” **as the shortcut and what displays is “Alt+G”. But for this one, ONLY **“Alt+G” **will open Gedit and NOT Ctrl+Alt+G…
Strange… I know both Ctrl keys are working fine for everything else, like for cut, copy, and paste… And they were working for that as well before I changed the layout, so I’m not sure what is going on with this thing.
In KDE4, we can access Input Devices ->Keyboard ->Keyboard Model ->Hewlett-Packard Mini-110 Notebook
Can you access a dropdown menu in GNOME that provides a list of keyboard models?
Yea, I wish I had a section like that in the GNOME setting’s menus… In KDE I’m guessing that menu isn’t in YaST, but a KDE specific settings menu, right? It would be nice if I was able to select the exact model for the laptop, like you seem to be able to do…
Unless a reboot or anything like that was required after I followed your instructions *(which I assume isn’t necessary), is there anything to try?
Thanks Again for the replies, much appreciated!
EDIT: As far as a newer version, would you guys recommend upgrading this laptop to the newest version, even though it is a fairly old laptop…?
