Adding keyboard shortcuts in Gnome


Hi group,

How can I add a key to the keyboard shortcut:
System-->Preferences-->Personal-->Keyboard Shortcuts?
Right now 'Alt-F7' is used to move a window. I don't know where this is defined? I want to change it and it is not in the shortcut list.
There is also 'Alt-mouse_1' but I am using 'Desktop effect' which as a bug where the window headers of new windows are obscured, which is why I want to move the window.

not sure what you are trying to do but any configuration beyond the basics are made using gconf-editor

Gconf-editor waqs not installed on my FC8 system, so I found it and installed it.

Now how do I use it. It is not very well documented.

Is there a 'How to' for gconf-editor??

After messing with gconf-editor I now know what I want it to do.

I want to add keys to the gnome-keybinding-properties GUI. So how can this be done???

Thanks for your time.
