I know how to map a single key to a command using the gconf settings. I also know how to map a single key to another key (F1 -> ctrl) using Xmodmap. My question is how can I map a single key such as F1 to a multi-key operation such at ctrl+c. I am basically trying to set up a single key to simulate copy. I can think of two ways to possibly do this:
- Map single key to multiple keys so that when the single key is pressed it is essentially pressing ctrl+c.
- Use gconf settings to execute the copy “command” upon the single key press. I am not sure if there is a “command” to copy text.
