    Desktop shortcut question


    Does anyone know if it is possible to map shortcuts to specific desktops? I saw in the shorcut menu that you can map next, previous, left, right, etc. I would like to map shift 1,2,3,4 to desktops 1-4. Can anyone let me know if this is possible?

    Thank you.

    What desktop environment are you using? KDE? Gnome? Something else?

    You can set up keyboard shortcuts with the Pager applet. (It's the little thing on the bottom right of the K menubar that lets you swap between desktops.) I believe the default is CTRL+F1 through CTRL+F4.
