Allow xfwm4 to bind multiple keys to the same actions


Description huggie 2008-02-25 17:02:07 CET
We had a feature request (a while ago) to bind multiple keys to one action.

i.e. allow both ALT-F1 and CTRL-F1 to both be bound to "Go to workspace 1" for instance.

You can see the bug at:

I don't know what you think about this but if you have strong views one way or the other then we can either tell the user it'll never happen or that it'll happen at some point.

Any news on this?

Not really, I am not sure I see the benefit of this, while I certainly fear the implications.

But if you have the time to propose a patch I would review it. Note that the implications of such a change are not to be underestimated.
