I am using the Ubuntu document viever Evince. Lately, I found out how to add custom keyboard shortcuts for the program. I was searching for a way to add a shortcut e.g. for View / Best fit (also available as a button). What I found was the Keyboard shortcut page which describes how to setup shortcuts using gconf-editor. That worked as described. However, once I restart my system the shortcuts are gone. How can I set them permanently?
For Ubuntu 12.04 and up:
dconf-editor instead of
sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
Then set the key
/org/gnome/desktop/interface/can-change-accels to true.
Setting shortcuts when using global menu:
- Open evince (or any app) with
- Browse menus, hover an entry, type your shortcut
This question is identical to another one, where I suggested a way to edit the config file to alter the keys: https://askubuntu.com/a/899956/495717
