comment Using Ctrl-Alt for AltGr
@PiotrDobrogost I'm not familiar with the terminology you use. The keys have 3 symbols on them. One is default when pressing it, one is enabled using shift, and one enabled using altgr. IIRC, there are 5 levels you can access in total. As noted above, I'm now using programmer dvorak, and I've bound a key as the composite key so I can also type "special" characters like æøå.

comment Using Ctrl-Alt for AltGr
@pilona: X11, but the question is two years old. I'm now using programmer dvorak, so this is no longer an issue for me.

comment Get numeric position indicator on icons in taskbar?
Nice, thanks! I still have the piece of paper here :) It's also a pain when having more windows open as the icons shrink. I'll be sure to try this one.

comment gvim missing menu on arch/xfce
I ended up continuing to uninstall everything vim and deleting all settings. This helped. I guess I f.. up when installing some through manual AUR, some through yaourt, and some manually copied from a windows disk :)

comment gvim missing menu on arch/xfce
-u NONE doesn't show the menu. Without this option, the Plugins menu item appears. :version has both +menu and +toolbar. @sigmavirus24: I'm missing menu.vim - it doesn't appear even after reinstalling gvim. What to do...

comment Disable laptops built-in keyboard
It's not a real answer as it just happened to work on this keyboard. I'll let someone else answer if they know how.

comment Disable laptops built-in keyboard
@BBlake: Yes, that would be a big problem. I don't think there are any special keys I don't have on the new keyboard or don't have access for through the start menu - a bit clumsier, but workable. Of course.. I might build some sort of lid over the keys, but I'm hoping for some simpler solution.

comment Disable laptops built-in keyboard
The problem is space. The keyboard is thin, so I'd like to put it on top of the laptop keyboard. But then the keyboard keeps pressing keys like "home" which makes it a bit difficult to use :)

Yeah. Problem solved. Write the answer, and I'll accept it

comment Aero: “Close programs using mirror drives” - How can I see what programs are causing the problem?
Thanks! I think you just found my problem! I need a restart to be sure though. Remote Adminitrator has installed a Mirror Driver, and it's obviously enough for windows that the program and background service is closed/stopped for Aero to work. Mind writing your tips as an answer so I can accept it? Rebooting :)

Win7 Enterprise x64. Restarted DWM and reran the diagnostics - same problem. Also tried related troubleshooters, but I only found one that didn't detect any problems (Display Quality)

That's the diagnostic tool I've been running. And it doesn't give me any details. I tried reindexing, but that didn't report any problems, and the diagnostic message remain the same. But I just noticed that the details for the error notes a potentional issue: "Aero effects not supported on this Windows edition" - Could the problem actually be my display driver having problems for x64 and not a mirrored driver at all..?

The problem is that I cannot figure out what program is using this mirror drive*r*. I just got the new computer (laptop), and I don't think Aero has been enabled at all.

comment Dead keys and non-determenistic “plain-mode”
You mean a different layout? This is not a new problem - I've experienced it on many different computers and keyboards over a long time. I have just gotten used to doing it the hard way, but my hands are getting tired, and I need to start thinking about minimizing key presses.

comment Dead keys and non-determenistic “plain-mode”
Depends on how often you use the characters I guess. When programming in D that is using ~ for array concatenation and ` for string literals, I experience it quite often. It doesn't seem related to a specific editor or version of Windows either.
