Software shortcuts doesn't work on EEE

Postby kaww » Sat Sep 27, 2008 5:46 pm

Hi fellow minters!

I have two laptops, both of them is running mint. I am used to use Alt+C to open up a Terminal. I want that on my Asus EEE 900 too. But something is wrong in Gnome, and i have no idea how to investigate further.

I can create shortcuts in "Keyboard shortcuts" in control center, but when i hit my keyboard combination nothing happens. The same thing happens with the keyboard shortcuts in Compiz under "Advanced desktop effects".

Anyone out there that can direct me to how to debug this to find a solution?

Thanks, Kasper.

You may have to choose the right keyboard layout first - you find the settings in the Control Center
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
