So I have a Mac, and rather than boot debian/XFCE directly and have to configure hardware drivers I'm using VirtualBox.
This means that my multitouch trackpad works well, and I can jump in and out of the VM very easily. I have correctly configured my keyboard mapping, including those pesky alt shortcuts, and everything.
The problem comes from the lack of
In OS X, I've got used to using
end, which works everywhere (Terminal, obviously, plus TextMate, and even in forms in Chrome).
However, in XFCE this only works inside a terminal by default. I'd like to extend that shortcut (or, indeed, something like
Ctrl+E seems to actually be used in applications like eclipse) to map to
end as global keyboard shortcuts.
However, the two places where we can configure shortcuts in XFCE (Settings -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts, and Settings -> Window Manager -> Keyboard) the first wants a "command" to run on a particular shortcut, and the second doesn't allow you to add custom actions.
Do I want to do this in a lower level configuration, like Xorg or something, or is there a way to configure global shortcuts like this in XFCE?
