Having just moved my mouse to the left of the keyboard in order to put my notebook on the right*, I am now hyper-aware of how much I use the mouse and that this is less comfortable than using the keyboard. So, a few questions, if anyone can help:
- I love my MacBook keyboard/trackpad - use the mouse without having to move your hand! Adesso make a contoured keyboard with trackpad but I’m not sure if this will play nicely with Linux. Any experiences, or other recommendations?
- I’m trying to increase the amount that I use keyboard shortcuts. The two GUI programs I use most often are Firefox and Thunderbird (actually these are pretty much the only GUI programs I use; everything else is terminal-based and I have a Gnome shortcut to launch a terminal window). I have the “frequently used shortcuts” tip pages for both of these; any other good resources?
- In particular, I can’t find any way of searching my bookmarks, or in particular accessing the quick bookmark bar, in Firefox from the keyboard. I’ve tried the Vim Firefox extension before but it didn’t work well for me. Any suggestions here?
* It was pointed out to me that constantly reaching across the keyboard to make notes was a bit daft. I have been sat at this desk for nearly 3 years and this has never previously occurred to me.
