- Run gconf-editor (Alt+F2, and type gconf-editor in the dialog box).
- Drill down to apps | compiz | general | allscreens | options.
- There are a series of commandx keys (command0 through command11). Pick any empty one(s) and type the command to start the application(s) you desire, e.g. for command0: speedcrunch
- For any commandx you entered, find the corresponding run_commandx_key node further down the screen. Type the keystroke you desire to trigger running the command. Special keys are:
- Control: <Control>
- Alt: <Alt>
- Windows key: <Super>
- Shift: <Shift>
Does anyone know how to represent the escape key? It used to be "Escape", but that doesn't seem to work with any of the combinations I tried.
Under its Command options, you can enter the commands that get stored in the commandx keys above. Then on the Actions tab under the Commands section, you can click in the Key column and type in the keystroke you wish to set for each command. I still had problems getting the Ctrl+Shift+Escape keystroke mapped, but for many keystrokes this is much easier.
