I guess that depends on your window manager

With my WM (i3), I can program key-combinations, like:

bindsym control+mod1+m exec ~/
Note, the above is the syntax of my WM config file, NOT a console `bindsym` however if you want to bind keys in the console, use:

shell$ bind -x '"\C-m":~/'

and while that works well, I have found it also seems to make the console act weird sometimes.

Your best course of action is to configure a key-combo using your WM, however it does that.

Speaking of WMs, I noticed that dialog boxes seem to appear on the wrong monitor, even Yakuake (a terminal that slides out from the top of the screen) pops up on the secondary monitor, while the taskbar is in the right place!
