quick shortcut key to start xterm - how?


Hi

I use KDE with fedora core 2 on a 2.6.7 kernel. I was wondering is there a way i can assign programs to different key combinations - so that for instance i could press ctrl+alt+t for a terminal window or something like that. Can someone help me if they know how to do this?

thanks.

KDE Control -> Regional & Accessibility -> Keyboard Shortcuts


A grain of curiosity could have led you there ;)



Cheers,

If you do not use KDE, you will have to use a file ~/Xresources. I do not know the format of it, so do some searching.

It's ~/.Xresources, and the format is described in
man X

And he is using KDE :}

Sorry, It been a long time since I messed around in ~/.Xresources. Usually man does not well put config files or commands, so I have to resort to the internet on the format.
