I know there is the keybinding file /usr/share/inkscape/keys/default.xml, and I can change it to modify the keybindings. But since it will probably get overwritten on an update, I want to know where else I can put it.

I tried to copy the file to ~/.inkscape/keys/default.xml, but Inkscape ignored my changes.

Does anyone know where to put it?

Use ~/.config/inkscape/keys/default.xml instead of ~/.inkscape/keys/default.xml
