    I don't know if there is a simple way to create your shortcut. But you can type
    Code:
    alt+F2
    that will open a 'Run command' window. Just type 'firefox' to launch it. As there is a history the next time you will just have to type 'f' and it will propose some completions. I don't know if you find that faster than the mouse.

    But he's running Suse 9.2, and lineak doesn't really work with 9.2. There was a whole thread about lineak the other day, and that was basically the conclusion:

    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    It is only klineakconfig that doesn't work in 9.2, linEAK itsself does
