VL 6.0 LightEd - keys-shortcuts
« on: June 06, 2009, 01:10:36 pm »

I've VL 6.0 LightEd new installed.
In ~/.icewm/keys the terminal is mapped to "Alt+Ctrl+t". But if I press "Alt+Ctrl+t" a text-editor is opening?
Are there additional key-mappings elsewhere? Any ideas?
Thanks for any advice!
Gomez

I think you can get the terminal by pressing f4.  Not sure about the keymapping though, only just started using light, for packaging purposes.

Try Win+s for a shell, Win+a for root (administrator).

Hi, thanks for your replies.
Unfortunately no keys worked.
But I found why leafpad is opening.
In ~/.icewm/keys there is also the entry
Code: [Select]
key "Super+t" leafpadSo I commented this line and the
Code: [Select]
key "Alt+Ctrl+t" xtermworked as expected.
But I still don't understand why the "Super" key overwrite the "Alt-Ctrl" key-combination.
Has somebody else this experience in Icewm, or is this a problem of my installation or notebook?

The keys in Light are set up the way I like them.  ;)

Realizing that's not necessarily what everyone wants, instructions leading to editing the keys file was included in the welcome document that pops up on first run (or launched from desktop icon).

I read this document, but it doesn't work like expected.
If your Super-key doesn't overlay the Alt+Ctrl Keys at your installation then its a local computer problem I think I have.
Fortunately I've found an workaround (commented Super-keys) in the keys - file.

Yeah, looks like mixing in the Super key may lead to some unexpected results. IceWM has a lot of options and features, more than I use on a regular basis. Glad you got it working the way you want it.
