  • Mod4 on a Space bar
  • Fed up with the Mac, I spent six months with a Linux laptop | 2021-04-02
    For key mapping, I wish the author had discovered interception-tools. It is far more powerful and easy to use than karabiner.

  • Using &lt;Enter&gt; as a modifier in normal mode? | 2021-03-26
    Bit more advanced | 2021-03-26
    Sorry, I meant this plugin for interception tools which does the same as xcape and mapping caps to ctrl. It just does this with minimal dependencies a fair bit nearer to the kernel.
  • System76 Launch keyboard | 2021-03-22
    FWIW if you don't have a board that you can reprogram (I am looking at you ducky and Keychron!) then this is invaluable:
  • How to hide cursor when inactive xx seconds on Wayland? | 2021-03-21
    I haven't tried it and I don't see how that would be useful, but this seems to do it:
  • How to remap one key to another arbitrarily? | 2021-03-17
    I recommend interception-tools, which gives you full programmatic control over key mapping.
  • Kinto: Mac-style shortcut keys for Linux and Windows | 2021-03-11
    I might suggest remapping caps lock to control on hold and esc on tap [1].

  • Help with mapping "ö" and "ä" to "{" and "}" | 2021-02-07
    Too little known
  • The new lvl of "how to exit vim" | 2021-02-06
    This is what I use.
  • CAPS LOCK as an alternative/equivalent modifier for $mod | 2021-02-06
  • Can i use function key as modmask? | 2021-02-04
    Hey I hear you, I also had issues with the win key and my wrist, now I mapped Tab and \ to behave like the super key when they are combined with other key and like normal on single press. If you don't have Caps Lock already mapped to something you could also use it. Take a look
