Provide configuration for Alt+F2 / Run behavior


Description Andrew Conkling 2005-12-09 01:40:48 CET
There is a program called gmrun which is a bit more enhanced than
xfrun4/gnome-run but some users may like to use it (I'm at least going to try it
out).  However, Alt+F2 seems not to be configurable, either in the Window
Manager settings or the Shortcuts settings.  It would be nice if this were added
to the Window Manager settings so the resulting action could be changed.

You are using svn trunk version. I know, I'm woking on it. The thing is the
functionality is to be removed from xfwm4 and implemented on a separate shortcut
editor, that will allow unlimited number of shortcuts. JF and I are both working
on the shortcut editor, in the mean time, if you need to change existing
shorcuts, either switch back to the stable branch or edit the keythemerc by hand.

OK, again, I didn't want to be a pest. :P  Thanks for the workarounds.

Wait a second; I thought I was replying to
http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1265.  For this one, you're saying that
I can change Alt+F2/xfrun4 in the keythemerc and that this will be working for 4.4?
Comment 4 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2005-12-09 17:15:47 CET
Nah, I'm saying that we are in the middle of changing the way shortcuts work.
When finished, you'll use a shortcut manager totally independant from the WM.
But for now, to change the existing shortcuts, you have to edit the keythemerc
and change the fields by hand. That will not work with 4.4 when released, as
you'll have a working shortcut manager then.
