As my first post in this forum recource I would like to ask a linux question. Also, this is something that I thought would be super straight forward, especially considering linux...
The Situation: I can't find a way to use shortcuts to directly open applications in GNOME.
I really enjoy this functionality when using windows7 and would like to forward it into my ubuntu 10.10 partition. I noticed that ubuntu doesnt use the windows key that I have on my laptop keyboard...so I figured that it would be the perfect key to do such shortcuts for it wont overload any other shortcuts offered by ubuntu or most other applications.
In the end I'm trying to acheive this...
"super+a" opens Terminal.
"super+b" opens Firefox.
It's the only convenience I found out of native windows7 functions!
Has anybody found a fairly straightforward way to accomplish this?
