In Ubuntu 16.04 I have added many custom shortcut keys to launch various applications such as Skype or Firefox.
In the case of Skype I have simply put the word
skype in the command box. But when I put any terminal command in that box the shortcut key is ignored.
Just for the sake of argument I put
echo 'abcd' in the command box and assign Ctrl+Alt+5 to it - nothing happens when I use that shortcut key.
I also tried to launch bash script and also python script from the command box of Customs Shortcut Key and again got nothing when I used the assigned shortcut key.
Are there certain restrictions on what can go in the command box of Custom Shortcut Keys? Or am I not using the command box correctly?
