Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

Open Setting>Keyboard>Application Shortcuts and go through the motions to reset the ones in question, look for conflicts.

I did not see any conflict
I applied the reset option by default, but the problem was not resolved .

No, not reset to default, pick the actual shortcut and define the new key combo.
If the same, ok, do the actual desired keystroke. the point is to get the action from your keyboard, not the defaults.

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

<property name="&lt;Primary&gt;&lt;Alt&gt;t" type="string" value="exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator"/>

TerminalEmulator on my machines is not valid, no such thing. Maybe part of 'sensible', but?

Redo the shortcut and redefine the executable. Pick one that exist.
perhaps /usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator

Yes it works.
For example, I can run the terminal with F8
But I want to run with default options.
And I don't like to see this bug or error.

Consider the defaults EXAMPLES.
Examples that need to be tailored...

Your example should prove the point, F8 would conflict with many things on my systems, so I us 'Super L'.

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

are you expecting terminal on F8?  it's not set that way in the file you posted.  have you tried Ctrl+Alt+t or Alt+t ?

My shortcuts settings are by default.
That is, terminal = Ctl+Alt+T
But it doesn't work.
While (app finder = Alt+F3) works.
Yes I tried Ctl+Alt+T but it doesn't work.
This is my problem.

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

What happens if you run the shortcut command directly in a terminal window:

exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

Issue one: does your keyboard work? To test reassign a working shortcut to "Ctrl+Alt+T"

Issue two: is "exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator" valid. Substitute  "/usr/bin/x-terminal-emulator" or other...and try in a terminal as ToZ suggested.

I still don't know which issue is your problem. I suspect a keyboard issue.

For me "Ctrl+Alt+T" works for anything I assign it to, so my keyboards works...
Newer Debian Bullseye has the full range of "exo-open" options and they all work...

Older 5 year old installations without "exo-open" had alternates set already, they reassign to "Ctrl+Alt+T" just fine. actually, since upgraded "Ctrl+Alt+T" mapped to "exo-open" also works...

I find no bug,

Yes, the keyboard is safe.
By ctl i copy text.
By Alt, i open app finder = Alt+F3
By T i type.
I don't know too.

Install xdotool (if not already installed) and run this command:

xdotool key Ctrl+Alt+t

Does the terminal window open?

Also post back the contents of your ~/.xsession-errors file after you press Ctrl+Alt+t.

Install xdotool (if not already installed) and run this command:

xdotool key Ctrl+Alt+t

Does the terminal window open?
Also post back the contents of your ~/.xsession-errors file after you press Ctrl+Alt+t.

No

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

Tell us about your computer.
- desktop of laptop?
- Which distro are you using?
- Which version of Xfce?
- any special keyboard configurations or language settings?

Try running xfsettingsd in debug mode and post back the output (after pressing Ctrl+Alt+t):

XFSETTINGSD_DEBUG=1 xfsettingsd --replace --no-daemon

Also, post the output of:

xset q

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

when you run "xev" and press Ctrl+Alt+t does "xev" show all 3 keystrokes?

Re: [SOLVED] shortcuts doesn't work

interesting...
i have Alt+A set to do "dm-tool switch-to-user admin".  while in user phil, i just tried it with "xdotool key alt+a" and my terminal fed it to bash which echoed "^[a" and the switch did not happen.  manually entering Alt+A on my keyboard switched me to user admin (from user phil).  now i am wondering about how these things actually work.  how does xdotool's X input fails when real key input works.   i assume xdotool interfaces to X (it works even w/o XFCE running) and i assume something in XFCE does the shortcuts.

  how does xdotool's X input fails when real key input works.

Escalating permissions is another issue. The keyboard is 'local', xdotool may be not considered 'local'. When any automation tool allows a path of escalating permission that method should be scrutinized. If xdotool passes as if local, that would be a security bug, unless some mechanism is in place to know better...
