I recently migrated from macOS to Ubuntu 20.04 operating system (and a new laptop fwiw). Out of the box, Ubuntu offer a smooth experience. Though I'm still hardwired to use specific shortcuts or tools from macOS, after 5+ years usage, and I didn't have the liasure to put effort into learning new shortcuts and tools.
CMD ⌘ is an integral part of my keyboard usage. Want to copy text?
⌘ + C Paste?
⌘ + V.
To replicate the same behavior I wanted to map my keys as follow:
SolutionKinto - A better Linux & Windows keyboard layout for professional mac users.
The installation step was easy to follow.

I'm concedering an alternative where I use plain text files, but still yet to find a working routine.
