    Question GNOME keyboard shortcuts


    Is it possible with GNOME to create specific keyboard shortcuts, except of the given ones? I mean, under KDE I've used 'Ctrl' + '+' to open DVD tray and 'Ctrl' + '-' to close it.
    If you need a CD/DVD catalogizer, give a try to my program:

    I'm not running Gnome right now but if I remember correctly, it's under System / Preferences / Keyboard Shortcuts.

    I've already discovered that, but it is very poor in possibilities. I cannot assign key sequences to certain programs, actions etc. I want more!
    Other suggestions?

    You can assign any key combination to any program easily.

    Press Alt+F2 and type gconf-editor.

    Navigate to app -- metacity.
    Assign key combination in global_keybindings and Package in keybinding_commands.

    e.g. Assign Alt+X to Xchat.
    global_keybindings -- run_command_1 --> <alt>X
    keybinding_commands -- command_1 --> xchat
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
