Dear Jim,

For UNIX/Linux, please see the GNOME Accessibility Guide which describes 
in detail all of the keyboard shortcuts available on the graphical GNOME 
desktop of many UNIX/Linux systems, as well as the shortcuts used in a 
number of GNOME applications.  Note please further that Java Swing 
applications when using the "GTK+ Look and Feel" (or the "platform 
default L&F" when running on a GNOME desktop) will likewise utilize 
those shortcuts.

Find the GNOME Accessibility Guide at 
http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/stable/ (and 
specifically the keyboard navigation section at: 
http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/stable/keynav-0.html.en), 
or you can read the entire guide as one file at: 
http://library.gnome.org/users/gnome-access-guide/2.22/gnome-access-guide.html
