  • What's the proper way to learn the little tricks?
    You can also do a copy and paste any where with Cmd-C/V when using my http://kinto.sh app for Linux. Keeps it pretty simple.

    For me, who would like to transition back to using Linux, after 2 decades of Mac use, I wanted to do the opposite: Make the Linux desktop work with macOS shortcuts. that seemes to be solved by https://github.com/rbreaves/kinto but the inverse of that is not trivial, because there is a huge diversity between shortcuts on Linux desktop environments, since there a multiple ones.

    That then also created issues remote collaboration as MS Teams had all sorts of issues when using it with RDP or even locally on my Macbook while also using it on the work computer.. All in all.. I was constantly fighting ridiculous issues all because they wanted to save $100-200? They could have literally shipped me a Macbook instead with Windows preloaded and I would have been 1,000x happier with that and more focused on the work at hand instead of fixing stupid problems Windows laptops often still have. As far as the shortcut differences go I fixed that awhile ago with my http://kinto.sh app.

  • Can I install this as a VM into Virtual Box? +
    You're not really going to ever simply forget what OS you're on, if you are going for the mac look and feel. In my opinion you should be looking at https://ubuntubudgie.org and install my http://kinto.sh app, the global menu is easy to activate in Budgie. If you also really want imessage then you can also take a look at https://airmessage.org and setup a VM on another box if you need to - but you will need to gather some genuine mac values https://github.com/myspaghetti/macos-virtualbox.
  • When they say Win + X ),:
    Just FYI, there's a cool project that remaps all Windows keys so they fit to the Mac control scheme: https://github.com/rbreaves/kinto

    > Any advanced Mac user knows about Karabiner, BetterTouchTool, Choosy, Alfred, Automator, and more.

    > With Linux, you can achieve almost the same feature set, but it is harder and more limited.

    > For example. To customize your keyboard, you will need a combination of xdotool, xbindkeys, xcape, xmodmap and setxkbmap to capture some event and then run a shell script. There is a Gnome Shell plugin that allows you to tweak your keyboard, but it's nowhere near Karabiner.

    Much of what you said is true, but you may also want to checkout my mac-style shortcut keys for linux project over here https://github.com/rbreaves/kinto. It takes a lot of the effort and annoyance of remapping out of the equation imo.

    Generally it is more difficult to find working alternatives on changing basic linux behaviors quickly, whether those solutions be free or cost money.

    And yes libinput-gestures can be difficult to work w/ I spent over an hour until I realized I needed to log off and back on -.-. Also it is concerning that you say screen tearing is back under Wayland - I haven't spent much time in Wayland because I have not yet worked out a good solution for porting my kinto project to it.
