Question about keyboard shortcuts


Hi,

Can I make a keyboard shortcut to a button? There is a show desktop button that I can add to
my panel but I would prefer a keyboard shortcut with the same functionality (like windows-button+d) in winXP.

thanks

Knowing your WM/DE would have helped :)

In KDE (with the KDE default theme) it's a Ctrl+Alt+D
To change it go to kcontrol -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard shortcuts



Cheers,
Tink
