Key combinatons and shortcuts under Fedora


Hey,

is it possible to create a shortcut to connect the key combination ctrl alt delete with the system monitor and the Windows key with the main menu under Fedora?


Just by the way I'm curious, exist there something like a Linux Keyboard, I was just wondering..
Thanks
KTL

If you use kde, you can use menu editor which is one right click (in the menu k icon) away from you.

Look into Start ->Preferences->Keyboard Shortcuts, this is where I set up my dell laptops keyboard so that I could press the Fn+PgUp so that I could control my volume just as in Windows when I had windows on my laptop.

Hey, thanks a lot. I never saw this option. Sometimes I'm running blind through the day

Hey,
since I configured that the key combination ctrl+->(right) skips to the next track and ctrl+ <-(left) skips to previous track, my right and Left Arrow keys don't want to work anymore. I can't even skip tracks now with the above combination, and when I want to use just the right and left keys in OpenOffice for example, they don't want to work anymore. The surprising thing is under Mplayer the Arrow keys work just fine to skip tracks without the ctrl key.
Has anyone an Idea how to fix this problem.

Thanks

KTL

Try going to where you made the shortcut keys and delete them, then see if the key works alright if so, you might have to come up with a different type of shortcut.
