Where to find the info as to how to edit accels.smc?

Hey,

Trying to uniformize shortcuts accross a bunch of apps, and I want to switch tabs within a terminal with alt+tab (alt+shift+tab).

Apparently to do that, I need to edit ~/.config/xfce4/terminal/accels.scm:

From some other place, I gathered that it would look somehting like this:

(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/terminal-window/copy" "<Primary>c")
(gtk_accel_path "<Actions>/terminal-window/paste" "<Primary>v")

Ahem... sure... but how to I know what <primary> is (or, for my purposes, what "alt" would be), the list of action, the context (I guess that's what terminal-window stands for)? Surely there's some doc somewhere listing this?


By the way, I think this info should find its way in the relevent doc, perhaps with one example if anyone has edit rights?

Re: Where to find the info as to how to edit accels.smc?

Most are pretty straight foward:

  • <Shift> is the shift key

  • <Super> is the windows key

  • <Alt> is the Alt key

In GTK 3.4, the GTK devs changed "<Control>" to "<Primary>".

Note that in 4.18, mousepad, thunar and xfce4-terminal will have shortcut editors - so you won't need to directly edit the file anymore:

Feel free to create a bug report, it but it won't really be relevant anymore as of 4.18.
