    Xfce: How do I refresh keyboard shortcuts without restarting Xfce?


    Xfce's Keyboard Properties doesn't recognize all the buttons on my keyboard. Thus, to set all keys I edit shortcuts manually. Unfortunately, the only way I know of refreshing the shortcuts once I'm done is to restart Xfce.

    I there a way to refresh Xfce's keyboard shortcuts after I made changes to the shortcut theme file (~/.config/xfce4/shortcuts/keytheme.xml) without restarting Xfce?

    Thank you.

    EDIT: I'm using Xfce 4.4.2 on Xubuntu 8.04.1 (Hardy)

    I think if you kill and restart xfce4-settings-helper, it should re-read the config files.

    So something like
    killall xfce4-settings-helper
    And then relaunch.
