I am using the Render LaTeX equation extension in Inkscape. I want to add a keyboard shortcut which would bring up the Extension window.

Any ideas?

You should find or create file "default.xml" in your <Inkscape-installation> path or in user directory ( for Ubuntu it's ~/.config/inkscape/keys since v0.48) and add this:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<keys name="My Customization">
 <bind key="k" modifiers="Ctrl,Alt" action="org.inkscape.effect.eqtexsvg" display="true"/>

I've written about it there
