I've set my panel to autohide. I can make it reappear by moving my pointer to the bottom of the screen, but, I'd also like to assign a shortcut key to do the same thing. Is there any way to do that?
This should do the trick.
Long story short:
1- write a short script (yourtogglescript.sh) that toggle the hide status in gconf:
2- Make your script executable:
3- create a gnome keyboard shortcut with System -> Preferences -> Keyboard shortcuts using the following command:
Alternatively you can put yourtogglescript.sh in the PATH (~/bin for example) and simply use
as your keyboard shortcut command
(you might want to adjust the delays to fit your usage)
I've changed the script to work with all panels, including any extra panel created:
