Possible Duplicate:
Do do I change the trash keyboard shortcut?

In the launcher, the Rubbish Bin is given the shortcut Super+t. I assume this is because it was named 'Trash Can' or something in the original language. I just wondered if there is any way of changing the letter of this shortcut because it's something that's mildly annoying to me. I'd rather have Super+t open a terminal like I had in 10.10.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I believe we usually call this 'bin' or 'trash'. 'Rubbish bin' or 'trash can' contain rotten food, not rotten files. – user7182 Jun 4 '11 at 18:10

I am currently unable to help with rename the shortcut Super+t to trash in the launcher, but I am working on it. However, I can point you in the direction of where to change the shortcut for the terminal.

To change the default shortcut CTRL+ALT+T, you will need to ensure you have the 'Compizconfig Settings Manager' (CCSM) installed. To install, issue the following command from a terminal:

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Once installed, or if it is already installed, start CCSM. In CCSM, select 'Gnome Compatibility', and select the 'Commands' tab. Here you can change the terminal launcher shortcut.

UPDATE There is indication that the shortcut for trash is currently hard-coded in Unity. See => Do do I change the trash keyboard shortcut?

I actually already have Hyper+t set to open a terminal. It's close enough. – Echogene Jun 4 '11 at 18:41
