I'm running Fedora 17 with Xfce 4.8.
I use Eclipse daily.
I use only one workspace in Xfce, so no need for workspace switching functionality.
However the problem is that standard key bindings of Xfce conflict with those of Eclipse.
Ctrl+F6 and Ctrl+F8 I would normally use for in-Eclipse editor/perspective switching, in Xfce this is however not allowed. Even if I don't have any desktop set up, these are simply not propagated to eclipse.
Is there any way to fix it?
I see there multiple options, not sure which would be feasable for you guys:
- add these to "keyboard options -> keyboards shortcuts" by default, to provide an option to remove/deactivate them (as the current problem is that they're not listed at all, but still used.)
- propagate them if there is no such workspace to be switched to configured (no need for extra configuration)
Going the other way - changing eclipse key bindings is not the way to go for me.
hey, even though there was no activity on this one from the community, I've been able to find workaround myself that works for me.
The place to look at is the file holding all the xfce shortcut definitions: ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml
To see the way I got it solved, see my blog post: http://peter-butkovic.blogspot.de/2013/02/xfce-changing-standard-global-keyboard.html
Grabbing the Ctrl-Fn keys is an unfortunate default; it is not obvious to users that XFCE prevents several common Eclipse shortcuts from working: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8276776/eclipse-hot-keys-dont-work-in-xfce
