Author Topic: XBindKeys won't start up  (Read 1905 times)

I installed XBindKeys http://hocwp.free.fr/xbindkeys/xbindkeys.html, it installed correctly, if I start it from the command line with xbindkeys & it starts up, I set up a shortcut for xterm, it works, but I can't get it to start up at logon.

At it's homepage it says:
Quote
You can now use xbindkeys by typing :
 xbindkeys &
or by loading it automatically when X starts up by adding the preceeding line to the file $HOME/.xsession.

I tried this, added that line to the end of the .xsession file, it didn't work. I added it to the ~./fluxbox/startup file, but that doesn't work either (xterm and gkrellm are both started from there and it works).

Any ideas? Thanks!

Try putting it in the .fluxbox/apps file, you need the correct syntax though, check the fluxbox website.

Sorry for hooking up into your Post but I think it is useless to make a new thread for this.

Does Xbindkeys also have the possibility to save up alt-codes (characters) and display them after assigning them to a shortkey(s)?
Like in Windows you type in alt + 130 and you get 'é'

Thanks!

From reading the docs the answer appears to be yes.
