How to use LXshortcut

Postby KK_dude » Sun Dec 28, 2008 10:35 am

Hi everyone,

Can you please explain how LXshortcut works. After downloading and installing the application I can't seem to git it to work.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I thought it works by right-clicking an icon placed on a panel, to allow shortcut change.

Thank you.

Help: lxshortcut --help-all

Create shortcut:

Code: Select all

lxshortcut -o new.desktop

Edite shortcut:

Code: Select all

lxshortcut -i new.desktop


Shortcut Editor:
run:

Code: Select all

lxshortcut -o lxshortcuteditor.desktop

Name: lxshortcuteditor
Command: lxshortcut -i
Tooltip: "comment"

Move lxshortcuteditor.desktop to /home/login/.local/share/applications (Debian) or /usr/share/applications

How can i make shortcut to lxshortcut -o "name".desktop that "name" will be the same as i put Name: in dialog window?

i wonder to know why lxshortcut is not included on "right click --> create new --> shortcut" (on the desktop maybe?) or on "right click --> proprieties" on an already existing .desktop file

That's indeed a very good idea. It's possible through the menu at the moment.
