XFCE keyboard shortcuts stop working
Wasn't sure whether to put this in General or in Linux - Distributions, Since I'm not sure if this is an OpenSUSE problem or an XFCE problem.
Anyway, running OpenSUSE 12.1 with XFCE. For the most part everything works great. Literally my only complaint is that the keyboard shortcuts are sporadic. I'll set up a new shortcut via Settings > Preferences > Personal Settings > Shortcuts and Gestures > Custom Shortcuts.
After setting up the shortcut, it will work for a while, but eventually it just stops working for no apparent reason. I haven't quite yet determined exactly when it stops, but I think it might be when the system is restarted. When it stops working, I can simply go back into Settings > Preferences > Personal Settings > Shortcuts and Gestures > Custom Shortcuts, and it works again. I don't even have to check any check boxes...click OK or Apply...all I have to do is OPEN the Shortcuts and Gestures window, and the shortcut is back up and running again.
I've tried this with multiple keyboard combinations for the shortcut I'm interested in. All I want to do is assign a simple key combination to open a terminal. In Gnome2 I usually assign the left Windows key to open a terminal, but apparently XFCE doesn't like that key, so I assign the Lenovo "ThinkVantage" button to a terminal, which works until it decides it doesn't want to work anymore.
