Ubuntu: Press any key - Which key to press? [closed]



Question:

I see press any key... on my screen and:

  1. I'm wondering which key I should press...

    OR

  2. I'm pressing a key, but nothing happens!


Solution:1

TL;DR In most cases the Any key is the space bar.


Check your skills

sudo apt-get install xautomation  sudo apt-get install xbindkeys  printf "%s\n\t%s\n" "\"notify-send 'Any key'\"" "space" > ./foo  xbindkeys -f ./foo  

check your skills and after that killall xbindkeys, maybe with copy'n'paste ;)


BTW, I have the Any key. Works great.

Solution:2

I've found that Enter or Space always work.
