I've just installed Ubuntu 6.06 with Xfce 188.8.131.52. I'd like to set up some keyboard command shortcuts, but it appears that the option to do so is missing. How do I do this?
Specifically, I'd like to set up a shortcut to open the desktop menu by running "xfdesktop -menu".
shortcuts for non wm stuff have been moved to the keyboard mcs-plugin.
Open the keyboard plugin form xfce settings manager and you will find it in the shortcut tab
Thanks. (The Documentation should be updated.)
One additional problem: it does not recognize the Windows Menu key. If I enter "Alt + Menu" it just shows "Alt". Worse, it won't let me edit the shortcut, so I have to remove it and re-enter it.
I've managed to fix this by mapping keycode 227 to F35 instead of Menu. (Apparently the Menu key triggers right-click events in applications.)
Sorry for the late reply, I did not see your post.
Try setting the setting XkbModel to pc105 in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf e.g.
Section "InputDevice" Identifier "Keyboard1" Driver "kbd" Option "XkbRules" "xorg" Option "XkbModel" "pc105" Option "XkbLayout" "gb" EndSection
make sure you do not change the Identifier.
Thanks, but those options are already set in my xorg.conf file, so that clearly wasn't the problem.
