How to use another distro keyboard shortcut?


Hello,
I'm testing MX 18 for about a week now from a SD Card and probably will install it definitively. It's been great but I miss some keyboard shortcuts from other distros for window manipulation. So I'm figuring out search for the xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml file from others and substitute it in my system.
I would like to know if it works and if I need to download the whole distro image to get it.
Thanks.

if you have xfce4 on another system setup how you like, as you're doing find the keyboard file, which should be in the home dir .config/xfce4 some subdir, just copy it over in the same place for the same desktop.

I tried it and lost the default shortcuts. I installed it in my HD and after some tweaks founded the keyboard shortcut editor in the Window Manager configurations. Since then I dont tried anymore and get the impression that this way is more secure to modify the system.

yeah I suppose xfce4 has it own edit KBSC gui then use that, for ones like openbox, fluxbox its a text editor.
