I've set up the Super key to open the main menu. It works.
gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/panel_main_menu --type string "Super_L"
I have a shell script
super.sh which injects a Super keypress into X. It works; the menu appears.
#!/bin/bash echo "KeyStrPress Super_L KeyStrRelease Super_L"| xmacroplay -d 1 :0.0 &> /dev/null
xbindkeys to associate Alt+F1 with
super.sh. It should work, but it doesn't!
However, when I associate Alt+F1 with
nautilus, or make
nautilus the only active command in the script, then Alt+F1 successfully launches
nautilus... so I am a bit puzzled about what's happening to the script.
Any ideas, anybody?
If there is a another way, I'd like to know about it,
and I'd still like to resolve this macro-generated key-press issue.
