System >> Configuration >> Configure Your Desktop
Accessibility >> Keyboard Shortcuts
System >> Terminals >> Konsole

At the bottom click "custom" click on the Button and choose the key you want to open Konsole...

let me see if I get this straight:

you're in an xterm. You want to create a (windows-style) shortcut to emacs; the shortcut should be placed on you desktop, and have the name "emacs ownz". You want to do it all using a text-mode program (as opposed to any gui stuff).
[modulo specific names]

correct?

since you refer to konsole, I assume you don't use Gnome.

If you were, I'd recommend this (I'd do this myself, that is):
(1) create a link to foo on your desktop
(2) grep foo ~/Desktop/*.starthere
(3) read the correct file, and understand the format
(4) create a short script that creates a file on that format

but you're not (using Gnome), so fix the procedure to apply to your situation.

I went googling for two minutes, looking for a prebuilt make-a-link (cli) program, but no luck.

PS. I assume you understand why `ln' won't do the trick for you.

Dude you do that using the KDE command center. I don't really know what file the shortcuts are held in, and frankly, I don't care.
I know how to deal commandline with commandline stuff (and some more), but creating keyboard shortcuts just isn't my thing.

If you want to start a particular program when you press a particular key, try hotkeys. It's a nifty little program with a nifty little config file and a nifty edge . Google it up, you know you want to

Ah, I see now.

If hotkeys doesn't work for you, there's also xbindkeys (I've had success with that) (just trying to provide alternatives--which is where Un*x excels).

Off topic, but anyway.... sorry to sound n00b here, but hth? the only thing that rings a bell is hand to hand (combat), and somehow I don't think that's what you ment.

Oh, and i'm all for alternatives. go *nix!+bsd
