Let's say I want to open xfce4-terminal from ranger with a keybind, like

map XX shell myterm

Is it possible? How?

  • What exactly do you want to happen? If you run xfce4-terminal it should open but ranger would block.

1 Answer 1


In rc.conf

map x terminal 

Now when you press the key x on ranger, it will open the terminal you set in the env var TERMCMD.
