So, confession time: I have this really bad habit of using the wrong shift key. For instance, if I were to type "Where" with a capital "W", I'd use the left shift key, instead of the right one as I should. This means I have to rotate my left hand a bit and stretch my fingers in an awkward way, which means I type a bit slower, have a few more mistakes, etc.
Is there a tool that can catch me doing this, and thus help me retrain myself? I'm looking for:
- Linux or Mac; Linux is preferred
- I'm specifically using Mint 14 on my personal computer.
- My work laptop is a Mac on Mavericks.
- Free or a few bucks (this is only a minor nuisance!)
- Should be easy to install (deb, etc for linux). I don't feel like chasing down compilation dependencies for this.
- I'm looking for relatively unobtrusive feedback; something like a popup that goes away after a second or two
In case it helps illustrate what I'm looking for, the inspiration for this question is an Eclipse plugin called MouseFeed, which trains you to use keyboard shortcuts by popping up a little alert any time you use a menu option to perform an action that could be done via a shortcut.
