Some of my notes on using Ubuntu Linux.
Disabling touchpad tapping
For some annoying reason, it’s very difficult to disable touchpad tap clicking, which is on by default. TODO: Figure out how to disable this. Maybe try making a karmic package of kcm_touchpad.
Right Alt produces wrong keysym, ISO_Level3_Shift
I had this problem on my Debian machine too. It should
produce Alt_R. The solution is to run
sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup and select No AltGr
key. I suspect this is related to selecting Dvorak as my keyboard layout.
