I'm very new to Linux and just downloaded F17 onto my box. I'm used to running Win7 and having tons of desktop hotkeys and shortcuts. I know that some of these quick tricks must exist in the Fedora environment, but I'm not sure where they are/how to configure them.

Do I have to yum install some sort of hotkey package? Any advice or tips is MUCH appreciated.

Distros don't have hotkeys, DEs have hotkeys. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Aug 15 '12 at 13:18
By DE do you mean Desktop Environment? – piperchester Aug 15 '12 at 13:25
Hotkeys will depend on the desktop environment such as KDE or Gnome. Which one are you using? – retracile Aug 15 '12 at 14:19
I'm currently using Gnome. version 3 I believe. – piperchester Aug 15 '12 at 20:28
