New Users / Re: Using arrow keys as keyboard shortcuts?

Regrettably, I couldn't get it work just yet. This what the keyboard shortcuts editor looks like:
.

Also, the contents of ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts.xml:

I wonder if it's my laptop's hardware at fault here. It's a pretty basic one - lenovo ideapad 110.

I'll try this out later today and will report on the results.

Agreed, zeppelin0110 !  Gives you and 'warm & fuzzy' feeling, doesn't it ?

Only thing I use '10' for is the Office 2016 suite.  I need to collaborate with the winders apocalypse army.  :)

Welcome aboard !

Thanks for the welcome! Myself, I actually ended up installing Office 2010 via Wine/PlayOnLinux. It works flawlessly and saves me from having to run dual OSs. Libre office just doesn't cut it for me when it comes to spreadsheets.

I'm curious, what are the must-have features? Are you referring to the 'Ice' tool? I have not tried it just yet.

New Users / Using arrow keys as keyboard shortcuts?
« on: July 20, 2017, 08:15:25 pm »
Hi all,
I would like to emulate a few windows shortcuts I'm very fond of. One of them is Super+UP arrow. This would maximize the active window.  However, it's just not working. I verified in 'Keyboard shortcuts' tab of Peppermint Control Center that the Super key is working just fine. For example, Super+n works just fine for maximizing. I then just typed in 'Up' in the input field, since pressing the arrow key causes input to shift to the next control in the form. But this did not work. Please advise!

Hi all,
I just got Peppermint set up on my laptop and I'm liking it a lot so far. This laptop is meant mostly for web usage and maybe a little bit of documenting editing. But it couldn't handle Windows 10! I even reinstalled win10 from scratch to ensure that no OEM bloatware was responsible. That still didn't cut it.

Meanwhile, Peppermint is just flying! And it makes plain Ubuntu seem like bloated mess. Long live Peppermint OS!
