Sun DeskSet is the collection of tools you get with OpenWindows; some of these are being ported to Motif for COSE/CDE: cm, mailtool, maybe others. [1] What are the default key bindings in textedit and elsewhere? [2] What can I put in my .ttysrc? Where is it documented? [3] Is there a tty-based interface to cm (Calendar Manager)? [4] How can I arrange to have my .signature included in my outgoing mail? [1] What are the default key bindings in textedit and elsewhere? See the man page for textedit(1) for some of them. In general, the editing/moving commands go in the opposite direction when shifted - e.g. Ctrl+w deletes a word, and Ctrl+W deletes the word to the right of the insert point. Meta-i - include file Meta-f - find selection (forward/backward) Ctrl-a - start of line Ctrl-< - back word Ctrl-e - end of line Ctrl-> - forward word Ctrl-w - delete word Ctrl-u - delete to start/END of line Ctrl-Return - move to end/START of document See the O'Reilly XView Reference Manual for a list of some of the default keys; see also the olwm or olvwm manual page. [2] What can I put in my .ttysrc? Where is it documented? See the manual page for shelltool. Subject: DeskSet, Mailtool, Calendar Manager, etc. [3] Is there a tty-based interface to cm (Calendar Manager)? Yes, cm_delete, cm_insert and cm_lookup; these all have manual pages. If "man cm_delete" doesn't work or gives strange messages, see under Trouble Shooting: Strange Error Messages, below. On Solaris 2.3, cm_lookup may be broken (and maybe cm_delete & cm_insert are too), as it always uses a date in 1970 if you give it an invalid date. The Solaris 2.2 and 2.4 ones seem more tolerant of date formats. [4] How can I arrange to have my .signature included in my outgoing mail? The best way is: $ cd $ cp /usr/lib/.textswrc . $ chmod +w .textswrc edit .textswrc (use vi, textedit, or whatever you prefer) add the follwing: KEY_RIGHT(3) FILTER cat ~/.signature (you might need to change ~ to $HOME) Now pressing R3 will insert your .signature file. [5] How can I get mailtool to send mime messages by default? Add the following two lines to your .mailrc: set strictmime set sendrfc WARNING: some versions of mailtool (up to and including Solaris 2.3, maybe 2.4 as well) will corrupt MIME messages that they receive when you save your mail. There's a patch for this. Also, the sendrfc and strictmime options are unsupported and undocumented.
