I recently switched to Manjaro(KDE).
So when I create a custom shortcut to open an app,for example
It doesn’t work.
all the default shortcuts work perfectly but none of my custom shortcuts work.
Please let me know if I’m doing something wrong or provide me with assistance to solve this issue.
Hi. I asked the same question a couple days ago:
Have a good day!
I still couldn’t find the solution. Can you please explain the solution in detail here?
Oh sure, I should have been more explicit.
The thing is, this is supposed to be fixed with an update next month. However, this workaround is good enough for me:
KDE Plasma is in a bit of reshaping process. With that in mind, “Custom Shortcuts” is for now dealt with the khotkeys package, and will provide this interface to set things up:
Hence custom entries will be created trough this menu at the bottom:
In newer KDE Plasma that is easier to deal with, and all custom entries will be in the same place:
So, by pressing + Add Application… will provide a simple command window for it.
Basically, use Custom shortcuts instead of Global. Then go to Edit > New > Global Shortcut > Command/URL and set up the key combination and the command you want to execute. I know, it was more comfortable to just pick the action from a pre-made list, but it’s not so hard to figure out the command and options you want to run. You can first do some testing with the console.
I hope this works for you.
I don’t have
Custom Shortcuts in my settings. I can see only
Did I miss something here?
Most likely you are missing the
That’s true. Does this package come by default with Manjaro?
I have no idea why the package was missing. Now my custom shortcuts work.
I just booted into the Manjaro live image and it had
khotkeys by default. Have you by any chance upated the distro recently?
Yes, I update my Manjaro regularly. It seems I lost that package whilst removing orphans:
Pamac already had a reported bug in older versions, therefore I felt like swimming in the unknown. After somewhat unnecessary “panic-mode” steps in order to prevent any damage to my Manjaro system prior to my first orphan removal, I finally succeeded to clean my system by using the above command. Overall, I needed to review the list one-by-one and when I identified the packages I wanted to keep, I did the following (before removing the orphans) to mark them as explicitly installed:
$ sudo pacm…
I wonder if I’ve lost some other important package within the same process. If someone of you have time to take a look, I would appreciate it:
