      For Wikipedia I just create another search entry with keyword "w", so I can just type "w foo" to search Wikipedia...

      Doesn't need an extension to search with a keyword (or a keyletter). In the settings for #Chromium or #Chrome open "Manage search engines", DuckDuckGo should already be in there, then change the keyword from "" to "!". Now you can search ddg by typing "! thing-to-search-for" (yes, you do need a space). For !Firefox and […]

      I was at a political event yesterday, where it was mentioned that government provides funding to the important academic curricula like software coding in kindergarten and subsidies for business programs. But I noticed that the event's headline performers weren't coders and business folk, but poets and musicians...

      Struck a chord: "We assume that humanities faculty Do not concern themselves with Grossly material things Like health and money and the houses they live in Because they get to read books all day, And that’s hardly a job at all!"

It's obviously biased by my relative participation in each, but I'm comparing the reach of twitter, facebook, Diaspora, pump, G+, and GNU Social (plus anything that can talk directly to it...that is not via NavierStokes).

Auto-Type Keywords for KeepassX

Posted by Bob Jonkman on 1st November 2016

KeepassX logo


I use KeePassX to keep track of passwords for web sites, server logins, and encrypted disks. And, at the touch of a keystroke, KeepassX can auto-type login names and passwords to those web sites, servers, and disks.

By default, KeepassX sends the sequence


but if the Username field is blank then KeepassX just sends


or if the Password field is blank then KeepassX only sends


But what other things can KeepassX send? A quick look at the AutoType.cpp source code reveals these additional keystrokes:

  • {tab}
  • {enter}
  • {up}
  • {down}
  • {left}
  • {right}
  • {insert} or {ins}
  • {delete} or {del}
  • {home}
  • {end}
  • {pgup}
  • {pgdown}
  • {backspace} or {bs} or {bksp}
  • {break}
  • {capslock}
  • {esc}
  • {help}
  • {numlock}
  • {ptrsc}
  • {scolllock}
  • {add} or {+}
  • {subtract}
  • {multiply}
  • {divide}
  • {^}
  • {%}
  • {~}
  • {(}
  • {)}
  • {{}
  • {}}
  • {f1}
  • {f2} .. {f16}
