Binding keys to events in KDE


Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to bind keys to events in KDE. I want to bind my F1-F4 keys to a Pager desktop, so that when I press say, F3, KDE will switch to the third desktop. Also, I would like to bind both Windows keys to bring up terminals upon being pressed, for the Menu key (between the right Windows and Ctrl keys) to bring up the KDE menu, and for the Home key open my home directory in a KDE window. I'm running KDE 3 and Redhat. Thanks for any help.

Yeah, I found that after I posted. However, I still haven't found a way bring up to bind the Windows key s to terminal, or the Home key to my home directory. Any further help is appreciated.

try

from a terminal window. It is the kde menu editor and allows you assign shortcut keys to menu-entries so it should be possible to get the key bindings you want.
