How to make Super Key Open whisker menu In LM xfce 15?

Postby pion33r on Tue Sep 10, 2013 10:10 pm

Accessing menu using mouse is kinda awkward. So I try to look for a way to open it with super key/ windows button, then I stumble upon this forum viewtopic.php?f=110&p=742232#p742081

I already updated my whiskers menu using the guide in this link viewtopic.php?p=747854#p747854 However I still can't make my super key to open it.

Any suggestion? :wink:

I got mine to work by following this

To open Whisker Menu using a keyboard shortcut, do the following: from the Xfce Settings > Keyboard, on the "Application Shortcuts" tab, click "Add" and use "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu" (without the quotes) for the command. Then assign it a keyboard shortcut (make sure it's not already in use) and that's it.

Hi, I tried that, but get:

Failed to launch shortcut "Super_L"
Failed to execute child process "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu" (No such file or directory)


Which is true, as there was no file called "xfce4-popup-whiskermenu" (without the quotes) for the command in the /usr/bin directory.

I've checked and have the latest version of Whisker installed, (by trying to reinstall it! :-) ). Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Rob. :oops:

I think you didn't update your whiskers menu.
