KeyWinArrangeN=”ALT+Ctrl+KP_Up” which you have redefined and made live. It did not work for me. It used up arrow in key pad. Does it work?
Yes, that is the key it is supposed to be, not the regular up arrow.
You can hold down control and alt, and go around the keypad moving the window to various positions corresponding to the keypad rose.August 13, 2019 at 1:07 pm #25739Member
You is right it does WORK !!! I only tested 1 shortcut and I saw nothing happen becuase window was already at top.
Sorry about that. I finally decided to read what it actually does and lo and behold it works.August 13, 2019 at 1:15 pm #25740Member
Try it with the numbers from 1 to 9 going around the keypad and then going to 5.
You’ll be shocked, its THAT cool.August 13, 2019 at 1:18 pm #25742Member
PS: Check to see in your keys file if you have the “grow” and “shrink” keys that I added on the keypad + and –
I looked and I had left them off the map. Everything I have proposed to date is in the keys file attached to this post

Testing again last night found that my 2 new keys don’t work because they don’t generate any output, so need to use other Grow and Shrink keys instead. Also, mute key has never worked. Moved it to Alt+Ctrl+KP_Insert (0 key on numeric keypad)
revised keys file attached…

Thanks. Grow and shrink seem interesting. I could just override some key to see how it works in b2 genesis usb or my installed 17.4.1
Thanks for the keys-1.txt will use to play with
Can you send a copy of preferences as well. I have genesis b2 perhaps I will learn how to do updates with differential files on download site
. Have to eventually. I coubr it’s hard.
I also have to relearn bash, sed awk Boi not enough time. FUN FUNAugust 14, 2019 at 7:42 am #25759Member
correction: I doubt it’s hard. for I coubr it’s hardAugust 14, 2019 at 7:56 am #25760Member
If you have done
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
today, then /etc/skel/.icewm/preferences file will be correct
PS: that needs to be from 19b2

That idea with resetting a variable by setting to 0 does not work. Do not use it !!!! Perhaps a simple reboot might do trick. Too lazy to research.
If 19b2 can be updated with sudo apt-get uodate et al why are there differential update files on the download site for b2 ? Am I nissing something?August 14, 2019 at 4:59 pm #25771Member
Yes, I know. It renders your 0 key useless.
Might be a better idea…

Let me know when. I’ll probably try tomorrow sometime.
Also realized to use pc104 keyboard. Instead of default of pc105. Bug not recognizing correct keyboard? I would imagine the keyboard talks to pc and identifies itself.
Maybe it effects the characters output but I doubt it.August 14, 2019 at 7:01 pm #25775Member
Anymore I try to stick to major brands of keyboards. I paid $4.99 for my fancy MS wireless one. It’s old but no problems.
Yes, not being what it thinks would sound like trouble, but not hard to fixAugust 15, 2019 at 2:26 pm #25789Member
Gee I thought I responded to your last comment. I am going to slow down with this keyboard stuff and learn some other stuff with relation to antiX. B2 to me is not that stable. I rather play with b2 when it’s released. I’ll play with 14.3 in meantime and move on learn Rox and SpaceFM. How to put links on the rox pinboard, etc..
Here is something which seems to work. Only use it if you have to reset a variable. Variable=X’00’ Copy the X’00’ exactly as written. X’00’ is zero in hexadecimal. This seems to reset a variable. But doubled check will all modifier keys such as Ctrl. Alt, Windoze, etc ad nauseum.
Don’t use it unless you have to.
