What would I need to do if I wanted to execute: chromium & by pressing F+J ?

Preferred requirements:

  • Globally accessible across Desktop Environment
  • Independent of terminal focus or not
  • Without using modifier hack in other words if F OR J is held down, treat it as ALT or SUPER key

You mention xbindkeys in the question tags. Use that.

In $HOME/.xbindkeysrc add something like:

“chromium &”
f + j
  • Thanks, but original functionality of J key is now launching chromium every time I press it... leading me to believe something is "stuck" – Danny Z Apr 24 '18 at 6:24
