I would like to setup some Gnome keyboard shortcuts to be a prefix-key, so that I can add several shortcuts with the same prefix. Eg. I'd like to be able to have Super+x be a prefix key, with the next letter determining the application to launch:
- Super+x f starts firefox
- Super+x e starts emacs
- Super+x t starts gnome-terminal
Also, something like k as a prefix to workspace manipulation commands:
- Super+k Left workspace left
- Super+k 4 go to workspace 4
and so on.
This is a natural analog to what
tmux and other applications do with configurable shortcuts, and I can do this with the
stumpwm window manager as well, but I wanted to try Unity on my new laptop and was trying to get the same efficient setup I had with
Is this provided for in Gnome? Do I have to do some trickery to do this? It would be best if I could find a way to do this in gnome's keyboard shortcut editor.
