Created keyboard shortcuts get lost and never show up....


Description Matthew 2006-04-09 22:11:11 CEST
Hello, this has been very annoying. When ever I create new keyboard shortcut they work untill I close out of the keyboard shortcut setting box. If I go back in the shortcut profile I created will not show up. Also if I try to create a new shortcut profile with the same name I'm told it already exists (which would make sence). I marked this a major because this is very very annoying.

I cannot reproduce the problem you describe (using revision 20833).

- Do you see the shortcuts files in $HOME/.config/xfce4/shortcuts/ ?
- Is the selected theme listed in $HOME/.config/xfce4/mcs_settings/shortcuts.xml ?

I think this is a duplicate of Bug #968
Comment 3 Olivier Fourdan editbugs 2006-05-12 20:20:03 CEST
I doubt it, it's not even the same plugin as #968. I think this is because of duplicate shortcut plugins using the same channel (the one before the merge with the keyboard shortcut)

I have the same problem, it's caused by a bug in XFCE. When you add a new shortcut, which contains quotes, XFCE saves it in a XML file which is not well-formed.

xterm -name "My Xterm"

<shortcut command="xterm -name "My Xterm" -e mc" keys="Control+x"/>

Which is obviously wrong. It even breaks every time you save shorcuts (even if you manually correct it using &quot;)
