How can one get more than 12 comands in Compiz->Comands?

It's mainly for screen bindings.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts

That allows you to add conceivably an infinite amount of key bindings.

Im sorry, it's exclusively for screen bindings. Thanks anyway. – qox Aug 5 '10 at 16:53

I don't know if Compiz will accept this, but these settings are stored in gconf.


Run that, then navigate to /apps/compiz/plugins/commands/allscreens/options/

Try right-click -> New Key

Name it command12 and make it of type string For value, put the command you want to run

Add keys named

  • run_command12_button
  • run_command12_edge
  • run_command12_key

Also of type string

For edge, you can set any of the following:

  • TopLeft
  • Top
  • TopRight
  • Left
  • Right
  • BottomLeft
  • BottomRight
  • Bottom

If you want it to make it able to activate on top or bottom, put it like Top|Bottom

For button, if you want it to activate when you left click on the top edge, that'd look like <TopEdge>Button1 or if you wanted it to be for Ctrl+Alt+Click, that'd be <Control><Alt>Button1

Extrapolate from there

For key, you're probably getting the pattern. <Super>Q to make it Win+Q, etc.

I have no evidence that Compiz will read past command11, but if it just reads everything in that part of GConf, then this could work.
