I followed normal steps to assign Alt+Ctrl+T to open a terminal window. (Menu>Settings Manager>Keyboard>Application Shortcuts>Add and follow steps) but it just doesn't seem to work. I was following this and some other sources. Why isn't it working? How do I make it work?
I'd like to suggest the following steps:
go to 'Start' at the top left corner, and open Settings Manager
open Terminal and type
- open Keyboard
- open Application Shortcuts Tab
- click Add button (with greed-icon) below
- type xfce4-terminal
- trigger the shortcut, which is in this (Ctrl + Alt + T)
I solved this by adding the shortcut Ctrl+Alt+T for the command
gnome-terminal, using XFCE and TigerVNC. Go to the XFCE settings or run
Application Shortcuts. Press
Add and use
gnome-terminal as the command you want to trigger and finally the shortcut.
I'd suggest double-checking your command in the shortcut list. I know I still have a tendency to leave the 4 out of xfce4-terminal sometimes.
The most common and overlooked reason: see if any other program has acquired the same shortcut.
