I am having some difficulty getting certain keyboard shortcuts to work in xfce with beryl as window manager. What I'd like to do is have the main xfce menu open up when I hit, say, <Control><Alt>m. I can get the menu to open if I open up a terminal and type "xfce4-popup-menu" but nothing at all happens after I set the keyboard shortcut I want to run the same command. Other shortcuts work just fine. For example <Alt>a opens up a terminal, and my shortcut for that simply consists of the command "gnome-terminal." All of this is set in the beryl-manager. Is there something I am missing about the way terminal emulators or window managers work that would prevent me from doing what I want here?
I used to use fluxbox with a ton of different keyboard shortcuts including one to open the fluxbox menu, but I seem to have gotten, um, hooked on the whole 3d desktop thang.
Any ideas anyone?
BTW I am running Slackware 12.0, with dropline gnome and the default version of xfce that is included with Slack 12.0.
