Shortcut key to do "CL_ALL=zh_big5 beep-media-player"
On the keyboard, I have this button called "media". I want to set it so that when I press that "media" button, beep media player will run with Chinese enabled. To have beep media player Chinese enabled, I need to go to the terminal and type in CL_ALL=zh_big5 beep-media-player.
So I decided to go to kHotkeys, and try to somehow put "CL_ALL=zh_big5 beep-media-player" in there. Nothing was suitable for this function. Even, the command/run line was no use. I tried the menu edit, and it was no use as well.
If there is no way of doing this, I would at least like to have beep media player with Chinese start automatically when I log in.

I have used LinEAK before, it works exactly like kHotkeys. Both of these can assign commands to keys, but when I assign the "CL_ALL=zh_big5 beep-media-player", it doesn't work. This line does not work even when I run "Command/run" from the KDE menu. It only works when I run it from terminal. I think it might have something to do with how locale works.

I dunno if this would work, but try this script:
