multi-aterm


Hey, multi-aterm is a godsend. But I've got one question:

How can I create keyboard shortcuts for switching between tabs?

Its kind of tedious to rely on my mouse every time I want to switch back and forth between terminals.

If this is blatently stated in the man page I appologize (but I couldn't find anything on it there).


Thanks, in advance.

Hi [WebCarnage]!

What Desktop environment are you using? Most of them provides a tool for configuring keyboard shortcuts. Some, specially the light weight ones as Blackbox, won't. But you can always use a third part program to make them run as bbkeys. But it's better if you tell us about your desktop first

Cool, then you might want to add a line like this to you .bbkeysrc at /home/user directory:

Code:
KeyToGrab(Tab), WithModifier(Mod1), WithAction(NextWindow)
And restart Blacbox. That would give you a similar "Alt-Tab" windows like!

Regards!

Oh yeah, you might want to get a tool called bbconf to make your life with shortcuts much, much easier, as well as desktop customizations. It really rocks

Cheers!
