More hidden Gnome configurability

Posted 07-04-2010 at 09:36 AM by trevorparsons
Updated 07-04-2010 at 10:34 AM by trevorparsons (Minor edit for clarity)

Today a friend asked me how to change keyboard shortcuts in Nautilus, Gnome's file browser. He had looked at System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and found no way to tweak them there.

I dug around and discovered that Nautilus's shortcut configuration is stored in the text file ~/.gnome2/accels/nautilus

A comment in the header of that file describes it as "an automated accelerator map dump". Does that mean I can edit it and have the changes stick?...

Still going...

Although life has forced me to neglect some of my projects recently, I have been able to put some more work into them in the past few weeks. I am confident that I will have more things to show by the end of the summer.

My first bit of progress this year was an easy but necessary update to Alexei: Part IX, which brings it up to version 1.2.8. Nothing really new in the release, just some code clean-up and other cosmetic fixes. Hopefully I will have more to show for my work soon....
