I installed Gnome Do and really like it. Just one problem: the keyboard shortcut would not work! Here is what I did to fix it:
Start Key (Super Key) Issue
From this thread, I found that I could create this text file —
File Name: $HOME/.xmodmaprc
Put the following two lines in the text file:
keycode 115 = Super_L
add Mod4 = Super_L
Run the following command in a terminal window:
The Start key worked right away, but when I rebooted, it asked me if I wanted to load the file. I put the file in the loaded column and it continued to work after the reboot.
Gnome Do Shortcut
I decided to change the command from Start + Space to Start + R (like Windows Start … Run). Here is what I did:
I used Yum to install gconf-editor. You may already have the tool, but I did not.
Then, I opened the Configuration Editor — Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor.
On the left side, I opened the path: / > apps > gnome-do > preferences.
Then, I changed the key_binding on the right to <Super>r.
Umm… My Super Key Just Stopped Working…
One thought on “Gnome Do Issue”
Easy (Vista-like) Super (windows-key) only summoning of Gnome Do.
Open (as above) the Configuration Editor — Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor.
On the left side, I opened the path: / > apps > gnome-do > preferences > core-preferences.
Change the key_binding on the right to Super_L.
