Keyboard shortcut not working
Last modified: 2008-05-10 09:49:32 EDT
Description of problem:
The keyboard shortcut to activate gnome-launch-box is not working. Also some
information on how to use gnome-launch-box would be nice. I had to look through
gconf-editor to find the shortcut.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install gnome-launch-box
2. log out and in again
3. press ALT+SPACE
gnome-launch-box should appear
Keyboard shortcut ALT+SPACE is already used for "Activate window Menu" in
gnome-keybinding-properties, so it can't work at all.
Yeah, it needs a better default, or maybe none at all, so that people need to
associate it in the keybindings capplet.
Ideas for another default? Otherwise I'll disable the default config.
How about STRG+SPACE? AFAICS it's not beeing used by default (at least in
Gnome). Otherwise I have no idea because all other combinations with SPACE are
problematic. Or you disable it and tell people to enable it with
gnome-keybinding-properties or gconf-editor.
I guess you mean AltGr. Does it resolve to "<Mod5>space" for you when setting it
I meant Ctrl+Space which resolves to "<Control>Space" in gconf. AltGr resolves
to Mod5, this is correct.
