Keyboard shortcuts do not trigger a start menu (SOLVED)
« on: February 03, 2017, 06:39:31 am »
Hi,

after installing Peppermint 7 recently, I've run into the first problem yesterday. I cannot trigger whisker menu with any of the default keyboard shortcuts (Windows Key, Ctrl+Esc, Alt+F1).

I suppose I've fallen into the trouble after playing with ˝Keyboard shortcuts˝ from the ˝Peppermint Control Center˝. At one point, I've decided to reset those settings and have hit the ˝Restore defaults˝ button. That's what caused the problem, I think. It seems, it restored the settings from Ubuntu or Debian... I'm not sure. However, the point is there are no more shortcuts for whiskermenu, instead I see ˝lxpanellctl menu˝ associated with start menu.

I've tried replacing those shortcuts with xfce4-popup-whiskermenu, but it won't accept the characters when I try to enter the ˝Super_L˝.

There may be other keyboard shortcuts that do not function since then, but this is the one that I immediately noticed.

So, please, how can I restore keyboard settings that were initially set when I installed Peppermintos?

Thanks.

Run:
Code: [Select]
cp -vf /etc/skel/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf ~/.config/peppermint-control-center/xbindkeys.conf
then log off and on again.
