[SOLVED-ISH] Re: Debian Bullseye LXQT key binding to an app?

maybe re-solved... So I found SMPlayer does have an option as a tick box against "Use the multimedia keys as global shortcuts" Found it in Options->Preferences and then Keyboard and mouse section near bottom. This worked as global keys on the first day fine. But occasionally it seems to st...

Debian Bullseye LXQT key binding to an app?

So if SMPlayer has the focus the multimedia keys on my keyboard for pause/play, previous track, next track and stop all work as expected.
Is there some way to always direct these keys to SMPlayer even when it does not have the focus?

Re: Bullseye Thunderbird Gmail broken

so if I'm reading it right the Bug https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=989839 has been resolved? But I've not seen an update via Synaptic, should I? or is it still finding it's way?

[RESOLVED] Bullseye Thunderbird Gmail broken

Where is best or correct place to raise a bug with Bullseye?
After recent update I can no longer access Gmail with Thunderbird as I did before. Non Gmail email mailboxes are fine.
It still works fine from Buster and other units and web browser.

Re: [SOLVED] QEMU/KVM send F10

Thankyou
$virsh list
So that returned an empty list, doh... but in my case

Code: Select all

$sudo virsh list
Does return expected deb9-vm
so

Code: Select all

$sudo virsh send-key deb9-vm KEY_F10
does what I need. this seems to work whether using VNC or Spice
and as found with Spice the F10 is honoured anyway.

[SOLVED-ISH] Re: QEMU/KVM send F10

Focus is confused - pay close attention to mouse location - The only variation to focus is locking the kbm in the vm. Without this then a tablet like trigger will follow the host cursor - all context hints from this location - for the F10 to work, mouse needs to be within the window. The mouse is w...

Re: QEMU/KVM send F10

The GUI can't, use 'virsh send-key' so can I use that command if the VM has been started via Virtual Machine Manager? the help says the syntax is send-key domain [--codeset codeset] [--holdtime holdtime] keycode... How do I determine the domain? on second thought, you must be hitting F10 while the ...

If I start up a virtual machine and then "open" from Virtual Machine manager how can I send F10 to it? When I press F10 the File menu option is selected on the VM Viewer. The "Send Key" appears to be a hardcoded list of key combinations and the Print key, doesn't appear to be an ...

Re: External monitor not detected with USB adapter

Also look out for the spec of the adapter if you want 4K and at 60Hz. There are a number including Dell ones that only do 4K at 30Hz. Might have been the previous version of Debian but I couldn't get the Displaylink to recompile under Debian because of some outdated toolset on that version of Debian...

Re: Debian 11 "Launch Application" and "Choose other applica

so I've resolved this by creating a script file /usr/bin/firefox-esr2.sh containing

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
/usr/lib/firefox-esr/firefox-esr --private-window $1

And I associate Thunderbird http and https to that, opens links in private window as I wanted.
