PCLinuxOS MiniMe keyboard shortcuts

I am an Ubuntu user and used to the sudo system in Ubuntu. I am not accustomed to switching user to operate as non-root.

I was in "root" under MiniMe and set up keyboard shortuts i e Alt+s runs seamonkey.......etc.

They work okay running as root. Those keyboard shortcuts do not work if I switch to my user name and operate as non-root.

If I set them up under my user name, they do not work in root.

Is there a way to universally set up keyboard shortcuts?

Update: If I allow user to operate as root, I can create shortcuts as user. It would be necessary for root and each user to setup their own shortcuts,so this thread is solved.

Thanks for your help.

Thumbs up

Thanks for posting the solution. That's the LQ spirit.

A suggestion for the future: If you answer your own question, put the solution in a separate post; this does 2 good things:
  • It generates e-mail to anyone who subscribed to either the thread or the forum.
  • It avoids the creation of oxymoronic 0-reply solved threads.


keyboard, minime, shortcuts
