Description of problem:
According to the help for gnome-keybinding-properties (i.e. go to the GNOME menu
| Preferences | Keyboard Shortcuts and click Help), you can add custom
keybindings by going to gnome-keybinding-properties and hitting the Add button.
However, there is no Add button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. GNOME menu | Preferences | Keyboard Shortcuts
2. Press "Help", read about "Add" button
Actual Results: There is no Add button.
Expected Results: There is an Add button that allows you to create custom
keybindings to arbitrary programs.
I just noticed there is a GNOME bug for this:
which indicates it is fixed for 2.2.1. I'm not clear if they mean they've added
the feature, or removed it from the documentation.
I think the feature should be added/included/backported to RedHat 9. To the
friend who pointed this out to me, being unable to customise his keybindings is
a killer bug (a "workflow" bug, sure, but a killer one), and it is a regression
in the sense he could set custom keybindings in RedHat 7.3.
It was removed from documentation.
I'm not sure why Sun patch is not upstream, ccing Mark
