# this is for running the AIORemote server from my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS Laptop to run with my Android device as remote control mouse pad and wireless file transfer.

I know how to create keyboard shortcut which execute .jar file but i'd like to know how to make a shortcut that would toggle (start/stop) the program either with .jar or .sh files provided by the program developer.

On the same note, is there any way that I can edit the Keyboard Shortcut message that pops up on pressing the "Super" key? I am not sure if this make any more sense but I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit with 3.13 mainline kernel.

This is certainly possible. The only way to kill the java program would be with something like kill though. –  Seth Jan 26 '14 at 19:42
is that how the scripting behind 'toggle' feature are written? –  harayz Jan 27 '14 at 19:59
Toggle features? If you mean like settings within Ubuntu, no, it's a bit more complicated than that. –  Seth Jan 27 '14 at 20:00
