How can I map KSnapshot to the Print Screen key on my keyboard? Ever since I've updated it always had to call the program explicitly.

By setting it as a global shortcut?

I remember it was kinda hard to do in KDE 4, but in 3.x you can easily set this up with kcontrol. Otherwise you'll have to poke around systemsettings.

Seems like it is in System Settings, under the Advanced tab and then Input Actions; PrintScreen action that calls ksnapshot when Print is pressed, yet it does nothing. I tried mapping it to a different key (combo), but to no avail.

If people accepted Linux as it was 10 years ago we'd still be using FVWM-95 or something just as revolting.

Hmmm I thought it was more about dealing with the influx of ex windows users in a sensible way and also understanding where some of the vocal minority are coming from.

As the blokey put it, let Linux change from the inside out and not from outside in.

Here goes a strange question... I was recently re-organising my music collection, both on my desktop (ext3 partition) and my music player (FAT32) and I came across some strange behaviour. For some weird reason my player acts all weird when I transfer the files from Ubuntu to it, so I have to go through a roundabout way of dumping it onto a Windows partition and then doing the rest in Windows, unfortunately. Anyway, some of the files have characters like "?" in them, which ext3 supports, but NTFS doesn't (or at least Wikipedia seems to say so). Strange thing is though, that I can copy the files from ext3 to NTFS under Ubuntu, and then open them just fine under Ubuntu. However as soon as I boot into Windows I can't open the file at all, and not even change the filename. Anyone has some explanation of the different behaviour between the two systems, even though the filesystem used was the same? Second one is, is there some application that allows me to convert the filenames to something that Windows won't crap out on when seeing, or am I just better of writing a script to do it?

NTFS specifications were not disclosed by microsoft, other OS beside Windows can't handle it 100% correctly, if you have to tranfers files from windows to linux or vice-versa is better to use only FAT32/16 partitions, they are more compatible with linux.

Right... so that still applies. *sighs*

Time to write the script then...

It's entirely possible those are Unicode characters. Also, which implementation of NTFS are you using under Linux? If you're using a recent release of Ubuntu, you should be using NTFS-3G which is a so-called "FUSE filesystem" in that the driver runs in userspace. ext3 and NTFS both support Unicode, I believe.

I'm running ntfs-3g. And yeah, I think they do support Unicode.

Not to mention, I've found that hitting tab when you have enough of a filename you can actually type helps. Furthermore, if you can get into the machine using PuTTY, even better since PuTTY also supports Unicode (it also works with the IME on a Windows box).

Like IRJustman mentioned, NTFS does support all of those characters -- it's just that the explorer file manager (and all the win32 apps using the same API) does not. I can get around this using Microsoft's SFU (services for unix) package which comes with Korn shell. Maybe MS Powershell or even Cygwin would work too.

Anyways, you wouldn't have to deal with that using ntfs-3g.. but I've heard about issues of corruption or a broken filesystem after writing and removing the device (example cited sudden power-off instead of hotplug; but it's almost equivalent) when all of the writes haven't been flushed to disk yet.
