How can I make the keyboard shortcuts keyboard-layout independent?

Reddit - Mon, 2016-06-27 12:26

Ever since I've started using a window manager the keyboard shortcuts had become dependent of which keyboard layout I'm using. This was somehow handled by the desktop environment.

I've configured all the key bindings I could find based on the keycodes rather than the actual symbols and it does seem to partially solve the problem, yet this does not apply for the program-specific key bindings.

A possible solution I've been considering is to somehow define my keyboard in a way that when a key is pressed along with any of the modifiers (Ctrl, WinKey, Alt and Shift) the resulting key would be identical to that in the U.S layout. I thought this could be done by adding a 5th level to my existing layout that would be basically lower-case English layout. The problem is to configure All the keys mentioned above as 5th level modifiers.

Other solutions such as 'xbindkeys' aren't very useful for most cases.

Any other ideas? I'd rather having this solved via editing configuration files rather than relying on software solutions.

Linux for literature courses in University

Reddit - Mon, 2016-06-27 11:38

Hey all, I'm on my second year of university. All that year I had Windows 10, but now I'm thinking to go full Linux. I need it mainly for typing lectures, making pptx's, watching videos at home, emailing and using it as my home PC In this year we'll have HTML programming. So, should I go for Linux, or stay on Windows? Thanks.
