Bind xfce4-terminal --drop-down on XFCE edition to F12

I noticed that Manjaro on KDE uses yakuake for a dropdown terminal from install, but the XFCE edition has no equivalent set up out of the box. xfce4-terminal has an equivalent mode if you launch it with the “–drop-down” flag. It’s not a hard change to make on my end (go into XFCE’s keyboard settings, set a hotkey to run xfce4-terminal --drop down - less than a minute) so I’m not at all fussed about it but I feel like it’s a change that should be made to standardize the user experience across the different variants of Manjaro.

Thank you to all the contributors for your hard work!

I used XFCE for almost 8 years, and never had a reason/desire to use the drop-down terminal/let alone bind it to a hotkey.

Don’t need to make XFCE act like KDE.

I used XFCE for more than 1500 years, and each day, i realize how drop down terminal is useful.


Usually, i use drop down terminal for my remote machines, it’s an habit i have, so that i am not confused with the terminal used for my local one
