Changing keybinds

Would like to be able to use W-d for dmenu, at present its used to show desktop. Thought about W-i (iconify windows?) or W-tab.

If there are any other useful keyboard bindings you miss or would like to see then please let us know.

Re: Changing keybinds

At first I had dmenu set to alt-f3 because gmrun was set to alt-f2.  On my newest install I set it to W(super key)-d.  That was before even reading this!  So I would say W-d works for me.

Re: Changing keybinds

See this post on how my keybindings are; I use the W key + letter as much as I can for applications except for some exceptions.
See http://stillstup.blogspot.nl/2010/06/ke … ndows.html

Pastebin for xml code: http://pastebin.com/6400yCJE
which I use most:
Super F11 Maximize full, toggle [Obkey options Action:ToggleMaximizeFull]
Super F12 Iconofy
Super d Show desktop
Super z Focus Next window [Obkey options Action: NextWindow; Raise AllDesktops or Desktop, linear; finalactions: Focus, Raise Unshade]
Super F1 Go to Workspace 1 [Obkey options Action: Desktop desktop: 1]
Super F2 Go to Workspace2

Super Up Go to the workspace on the left [Obkey options Action: PreviousWindow]
Super Down Go to the workspace on the right [Obkey options Action: NextWindow]

Super Alt F1 Send window to workspace 1 [Obkey options Action:SendToDesktop, desktop:1 follow:yes]
Super Alt F2 Send window to workspace 2

Used a conky to learn them:

TEXT
${color beige}Manipulate Windows
${color orange}Change the Active Window
Super+z$alignr Raise Nxt Wind
Super+Alt+z$alignr Raise Prev Wind
Super+Le$alignr Raise Half wind Le

${color mauve}Move between Windows

Super+down$alignr Go Right Wind
Super F1$alignr Go Desktop 1
Super F5$alignr Clientlist Combined Menu

Re: Changing keybinds

I feel so powerful with all those keyboard short cuts; it works so fast and productive; to my amazement not so many people use them daily it seems with all their possibilities of keyboard control..

Re: Changing keybinds

Do you use dmenu to manipulate your windows? I only use it to start programs.

Re: Changing keybinds

No I cannot ...

Use for windows

W-m toggle maximize
W-i toggle iconify
W-d for dmenu
W-Tab for desktop

Stuff I need on the desktop gets started from autostart

And I have a W-t terminal that is maximized and borderless

Tiling stuff I use stock ArchBang binds if I need them
