navigate menu with keyboard

Postby snlr on Fri Nov 30, 2012 2:11 am

hi all,

I'd like to navigate the menu by letters.
After opening it with Alt-F1, pressing S for settings, then D for disk utilities etc.

Is it possible to enable this behaviour somehow?


thank you

Seems this feature is called "Mnemonics (keyboard)" …
Just in case someone else is looking for it.
Alas, it's not available in Xfce/xfwm4.
