After installing my iAtkos v7 on my Intel Chipset i found a very Critical issue,Specially for the Previously Windows users that is Shortcuts are now working Correctly So after a frustration i Wrote this post that might solve your issues This post explains the steps I took to make my PC keyboard work more like a Mac keyboard. The goal here is not necessarily for keys with the same names to be in the same position (e.g., the Ctrl key), but rather to have the same functionality across platforms when pressing keys located in the same positions. When I started using OS X, I quickly realized that it uses a different set of key bindings. For example, the key binding for copying is Command-C, and the Command key on a Mac keyboard is located in a different position than the Ctrl key is on a PC keyboard. I decided right away to modify the Mac key bindings so they would be more like the bindings that I was familiar with. If I was committed to completely switching platforms, I would have given more consideration to learning a new set of key bindings. However, since I was still planning on using multiple platforms, I wanted to make switching back and forth as seamless as possible. Here are the steps for configuring the Mac’s keyboard to work like a PC keyboard. Step 1. Configure Modifier Keys The first step is changing the Modifier Keys… settings in the keyboard settings in system preferences. The settings are shown below. Click Apple icon on Menu Bar >> System Preferences . . . >>Keyboard & Mouse >>Modifier Keys After that Configure the settings as in the picture. . .same to same... Step 2. Create DefaultKeyBinding.dict The next step is to create a DefaultKeyBinding.dict file to add additional settings that make the bindings more similar to a PC (e.g., Ctrl-Left to move the cursor one word left, which will now be Command-Left on the Mac since the Command key is now—after Step 1—located where Ctrl is on a PC keyboard). I used KeyBindingsEditor to create the following DefaultKeyBinding.dict file: DefaultKeyBinding.dict DefaultKeyBinding.dict.zip The file should be saved to ~/Library/KeyBindings/, where ~ denotes your home directory. If you can’t see the Library directory in Finder, then click Go –> Go to Folder…, and enter ~/Library. Here Generally You Would not find the KeyBindings folder So go ahead and create it and place the DefaultKeyBinding.dict DefaultKeyBinding.dict.zip file in it . . .Thats it Done!! Restart and Works
Ok, so I am not sure if this is the best place for this post, but from the descriptions of the categories, it seemed to me to be the most fitting. Anyways, on to the topic of the post: The command key; an incredibly uncomfortable key to use, for me, and with the frequency in which I move between windows and OS X, it is just inconvenient to have to get used to the physical difference that often. So, what I am looking for is a way to remap the command and control functions to the inverse keys, except in terminal (where Control+C is still Control+C). This would obviously have no affect on shortcuts that use Command and Control at the same time as I would be pressing both keys regardless (yes, someone on another forum, actually tried to tell me that this is a reason that such a remap would be a bad idea). Doe anyone out there know of an application that will let me do this. P.S if your response is "Just get used to it", please keep it to your self. I am obviously looking for this solution specifically so I don't have to sit there and be uncomfortable, and so that I can be more productive.
