Need help adding new Keybindings.

Post by floweringmind » Thu Jul 12, 2007 2:28 pm

Is there anyway to replace the current gnome keybinding system? It totally sucks. For starters it only has a few things you can keybind. Second there is no way to add new keybindings. Third I can't switch a default app to another app. So I can't make a different filemanager my default one.

Is there a replacement to the gnome keybinding system?

key binding is creating keyboard shortcuts customized to the way that you would like to work.

If you want to change the binding for common functions, like copy and paste (Ctrl + C/V) or if you want to create a keyboard shortcut for a less used function, for opening a program, or virtually anything.
