I'm still switching back and forth all the time from linux to mac, and I can't figure out how to stop getting confused in my keystrokes, especially with browsers, and unix apps.
Here's the situation: * Emacs, vim, shell, and other unix apps use the ctrl key the same on both mac and linux * Some VERY common keystrokes of copy, paste, cut, all are swapped cmd on the mac, and ctrl on linux.
Some things I tried: * Using cmd as ctrl in emacs -- kind of works, but then it confuses other unix type apps * Swapping the position of cmd and ctrl on the keyboard -- good for copy, paste, all, and not much else.
I can't possibly be the only one that goes back and forth between mac and linux having this issue.
Would it possibly be better to approach this from the Linux side and change the mappings there so that I can have the same ones on the Mac?
The main problem is browser apps (Chrome/Firefox) and then unix type apps (Emacs, IntelliJ, Rubymine, Vim, tmux).
