Conditional Key Remapping

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

I used bettertouchtool.  Where I can define keys global or specific to an application.  When I first switched to Mac, I kept using Windows shortcuts in Chrome, so I recreated a large set of them this way.  And, then Firefox.  I even have some Ctrl shortcuts for Safari, even though I never used Safari elsewhere...  Just muscle memory that Ctrl-F is find rather than Cmd-F...

 

The only thing I haven't gotten working using BTT is some way to shortcut "Open Link in New Tab" that get's around sites that hijack such attempts, etc.

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
        - Simple to use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process
        - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside of its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers)
        - You can use any volume you want that can be erased and is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will format it to make it GUID!)
        - Works on Mac OS recovery, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery, and you can use TINU to install macOS too.
        - All vanilla, the bootable macOS installers created with this tool are 100% vanilla, just like you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in the terminal
        - Open source, you will know what this program does on your computer and also you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code
        - Does not require to do anything of special first, just open the program, and make sure you have a USB drive pulugged in and that you have a macOS installer app in the system.
        - No need to go in disk utility first, TINU can format your drive/partition for you
        - Uses recent and more modern APIs and SDKs and Swift 3 language
        - Transparent graphics style available (use alt + s on the keyboard or View->Use transparent style)
        - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without needing for an update
        - Advanced section, to customize your bootable macOS installer
       
        Features that are planned for some future versions:
        - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool (TINU can already mount EFI partitions from version 2.0, but a dedicated section which allows to mount every EFI partition in the system will be added)
        - Install clover and configure clover
        - Install kexts inside the kexts folder of clover
        - Clover drivers customization
        - Use custom dsdt in clover
        - integrated pre-made clover config templates database from a remote and open repository
        - Support for other languages, at least Italian
       
      Rquirements:
       - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer)
       - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of at least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer
       - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive in your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media)
       
      Download:
        - You can download the pre-made and code signed binary from the releases section of the github repo: https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU/releases
        - Or you can just build your own copy by just downloading the source code and then using Xcode (requires Xcode 8):  https://github.com/ITzTravelInTime/TINU

      Hi guys, Ive been through some Audio turmoil since upgrading to High Sierra with my recent rig
       
      i7 7700k @5100mhz on a
      GA Z270-UD5.   F5 BIOS
      16gig 3000mhz
       
      GTX1070
       
       
      The awesome audio command script did not give me any audio throughput. The devices were displayed but not working, thus neither iTunes nor Youtube were playing anything.
       
      Since the script worked flawless in Sierra I looked through the 130 one for HS and maybe got confused, but it seemed not to patch the Z270-UD5's ALC1220A chip properly
       
      looking at the plist I found that it applied the normal ALC1220 patch to my ALC1220A.
       
       
      I tried changing the kext patch in the config file, but this did not gave me the desired result.
      Thus there seems to be the patching in the AppleHDA affected as well.
       
      With the older 124 command script working perfectly in 10.12 I dived into that script (which is a lot shorter than the 130) and changed the limitation of the OS (10.12.x) to 10.13 and ran it.
       
      and voila perfect Audio as usual..
       
       
      I'm gonna attach the changed script, maybe someone with connections can contact Toleda
      And a screenshot of the kext patch.
       
      Hopefully this is useful to some one out there with a ALC1220A who did not go the DSDT route yet.
       
      Have an awesome week everyone

      I have a Mac mini server with Yosemite, and I plugged a VGA Display using a VGA/HDMI adapter.
      The issue is, when I shut down or restart the server, the display is not recognized, then I need to go to unplug and plug again, and server now recognizes the display.
      I need to know how to make a logical "reconnection" for the adapter.
      For example on Windows I use a devcom application to enable or disable the devices.
      I was reading that the possible solution is using a kextunload command on terminal.
      I don't know which kextfile I need to "unload" for the HDMI adapter.
      On terminal:
      /System/Library/Extensions/
      kextunload exampleflile.kext
      kextload examplefile.kext
      Anybody have an idea about my issue? Another way to solve it?
      Thanks in advance

      More info at: http://www.thegroovykosak.blogspot.pt   Here is a video I made demonstrating the procedure.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04SLD2Kft60     Download your distro of choice, in my case Ubuntu Gnome edition   Once that is done, use the command that follows to convert the iso to img: 
hdiutil convert -format UDRW ~/path/to/target.iso -o ~/path/to/ubuntu.img 
Note: OS X tends to put the .dmg ending on the output file automatically, delete the ".dmg" ending.   Run diskutil list to get the current list of devices   Insert your flash media   Run diskutil list again and determine the device node assigned to your flash media
(e.g. /dev/disk2)   Run
 diskutil unmountDisk /dev/diskN 
(replace N with the disk number from the last command; in the previous example, Nwould be 2)   Execute the following command while replacing /path/to/downloaded.img with the path where the image file is located; for example, ./ubuntu.img or ./ubuntu.dmg).   sudo dd if=/path/to/downloaded.img of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m   Using /dev/rdisk instead of /dev/disk may be faster.   Run diskutil eject /dev/diskN and remove your flash media when the command completes   Restart your Mac and press Alt while the Mac is restarting to choose the USB-Stick or restart your PC and choose the USb from BIOS. This USB should work for any computer.   Note: (If you see the error dd: Invalid number '1m', you are using GNU dd. Use the same command but replace bs=1m with bs=1M. If you see the error dd:/devdiskN: Resource busy, make sure the disk is not in use. Start the Disk Utility.app and unmount (don't eject) the drive. )
        Thanks for watching

      Hi,
       
      Is there any PCi-E audio interface that works out of the box and supports the OSX volume control so I can control it by apple keyboard.
      If not, any USB interface that does it?
       
      I have currently a Digidesign 002 rack which is has a firewire interface. It's works well but volume control by OSX is not supported.
      I know there is a workaround with SoundFlower but I don't want that because it delays the signal.
       
      Hope to here your suggestions!
       
      Thanks in advance.
