I am trying to bind lxterminal to the windows key on my keyboard. The problem is, it only works for key kombination, such as W-r. But I would like to use W only.

I have added the following in to the <keyboard> section of my .config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml

<keybind key="W">
  <action name="Execute">
    <startupnotify>
      <enabled>true</enabled>
      <name>LXterminal</name>
    </startupnotify>
    <command>lxterminal</command>
  </action>
</keybind>

but this does not work. Can somebody please help?

UPDATE: I have just realized, that <keybind key="W"> refers to the W key (capital w), and not to the Windows key. This is illogical, because key combination W-e refers to Windows key + e.

It turns out, I have to use Super_L instead of W

<keybind key="Super_L">
  <action name="Execute">
    <startupnotify>
      <enabled>true</enabled>
      <name>LXterminal</name>
    </startupnotify>
    <command>lxterminal</command>
  </action>
</keybind>
  • It worked perfectly!! Tks! – fabiohbarbosa Dec 5 '15 at 15:32
