Keyboard shortcuts: Faster than the speed of mouse

Post date: November 26, 2005, 00:11 Category: Miscellaneous Views: 3236 Comments
Tutorial quote: My computer set-up is suboptimal. My desk is too high for me to type on comfortably. My workaround? I type with my keyboard on my lap. That puts the keyboard at just the right height and is kinder to my wrists. My mouse, however, has to sit on my desk. Using my mouse involves moving my hand a foot in each direction.

While this action might conceivably bulk up my arm muscles, I would rather not do my arm exercises while at my computer. Using the mouse is time consuming, distracting, and, most importantly, less ergonomic. While your computer may be better situated than mine, chances are you, too, would work faster if you did not have to use your mouse.

To minimize my mouse use, I learned many of the keyboard bindings for various applications. Many applications use similar bindings, making them even easier to remember.

I have compiled a list of keyboard bindings here for some of the more prevalent applications. Feel free to print them out and keep them next to your computer. It may take you a little time to remember them, but once you do, you will wonder how you ever did without.

Post date: April 13, 2005, 02:04 Category: Programming Views: 3585 Comments
Tutorial quote: Kommander is a simplified and modified version of Qt Designer which lets you add scripting abilities to the dialogues it makes. It saves the result as a designer UI file which can be run with Kommander Executer. It is the easiest way to make simple programmes, I like to think of it as graphical shell scripting.

Konstuct is a program to download and install KDE from sources. This tutorial takes us through using Kommander to make a graphical program to configure and run Konstruct.

Using a console shell or the graphical environment are two possible methods of working on a SLES machine.
