How can I set global shortcut keys to Pause and Record buttons in audacity?

Options of vlc allow assigning global hotkeys but there's not such options in audacity.

  • Can you control audacity externally, e.g. via the command line?

  • I do not know how if possible. Jul 27, 2014 at 2:01
  • I did have a quick search, but I'm not sure if it's possible to control it externally. If not, then I suspect it's not possible to assign global hotkeys either.

    One possible way to do this is to use xdotool to inject a keystroke to a particular window. unix.stackexchange.com/a/87839/18887

    thanks. But I could not get it work. There is also a key sending system in KDE. That system did not work too. Aug 5, 2014 at 7:55
