Binding super key to launch nautilus

Postby peterroach » Mon Jan 26, 2009 12:56 pm

Hi everyone. I'm having problems binding my super key + e to launch nautilus like Windows Explorer. I'm using gconf-editor under metacity to set a command (nautilus) and run it using <Super>E. I've tested it using gedit instead of nautilus and the program launches properly, but nautilus won't. Any ideas?

Try to bind the shortcut in CCSM. Please follow these simple steps:
- Pop up the Run Application dialog box (ALT+F2 by default) and enter this:

Code: Select all

ccsm

- CompizConfig Settings Manager window should now appear. Go to General Options > Commands tab.
- Enter this into an unused command box under the 'Commands' section:

Code: Select all

nautilus computer:///

- Still in the same tab, expand the 'Key bindings' section and assign your desired shortcut key for the command.

Note that this will take effect even if Compiz effects are disabled.
