OS X basics
From Bitpost wiki
Going thru the pain of an OS change, not THAT bad, here are the essentials...
- Use ~/.profile and /etc/profile instead of .bashrc
- DAMN the OS X designers, fruity mouse lovers want you to use corners of screen for workspace, window navigation - WAIT, there is a better way. KEYBOARD PLEEEEZ...
- Fn-LeftCursor = HOME (combine with other keys as usual)
- Fn-Enter = INSERT (combine with other keys as usual)
- Alt-` = tab through current app's windows
- Fn-F10 = tile current app's windows, navigate with arrows
- Fn-F9 = tile desktop windows, navigate with arrows
- Ctrl-1/2/3/4 = show desktop n
- Fn-F8 = tile desktops, navigate with arrows
- Alt-X = maximize window; Applescript here: ~/Library/Scripts/Click Green Maximize Button of Frontmost Window.scpt
- Command+Option+Esc to force-quit apps that aren't responding
- I still MUST find a way to flip thru code files faster!!
- full CMS cut/copy/paste are NOT supported, use ctrl-x/c/v HATES IT
- firefox home key can't be customized - use fn-option-leftarrow, rrrr...
- firefox address bar: command-L seriously peeps??! why is it different?!
- The following are available from the Apple icon (top left): sleep, restart, shutdown
- See ~/scripts/readme.txt for scripting details, you can run from terminal, double-click in finder, drop in the dock, nice!
- A good primer
