Fluxbox switching between desktops


Linux Install: Slackware 10.1
Window Manager: Fluxbox


Hi,
In fluxbox you are able to flick between desktops using Alt + F1/F2/F3/F4... just wondering, is there any way i can change it so that just F1/F2/F3/F4 allows you to flick between desktops rather than having ot use Alt as well as F1/F2 etc. are not in use.


Thanks,
Coloenl-1990.

so you'd rather have it be just F[1-9] instead Alt+F[1-9]? I think you can edit your ~/.fluxbox/keys file, and just remove the word Mod1(which is how it recognizes Alt) from the beginning. I personally prefer the Alt+F[1-9] combination. Your 'keys' file may be in a different place, but that's the file you need to edit.
