Reasign keyboard keys


Is it possible within Linux to program Ctrl + 1 to type my name and address? If so, how?

Thanks RockyRX

"Within Linux" is too vague. Some programs may allow that, for example I can do that in Vi. But if you want to achieve that globally, that may be more difficult. I have tried to do that in KDE, but never found a way. If you use Gnome, maybe it's possible. I don't know. At any rate, no one will be able to help you until you are more specific: tell us if you want to do that in any particular program or, if globally, what desktop environment you're using.

You didn't say what desktop environment you're using: KDE, Gnome, XFCE...

OpenOffice and Note Tab Pro support macros. I don't know about Bluefish.

But it seems you want to do it globally, so one configuration fits all. I don't know how to do that. I just searched a little and found something called xmacro. It is available in the Ubuntu repositories, I installed it, but won't have time to investigate it anytime soon. I have other priorities. Why don't you give it a try, maybe it is just what you're looking for.
