I am a Vim user. <Alt + h> is mapped to move left, but, it will focus to the memu and open Help when I use vim in Konsole and press the key combination. Obviously, that is not my expectation. I don’t want to change my vimrc about the key map. How can I do for this?
I also map <Alt + hjkl> to arrow keys, but I use different ways and there’s no problem of that. Here is what I did:
- The first method I use is using kde systemsettings: shotcuts → custom shotcuts, and set <Alt + hjkl> mapped to arrow keys. But the disadvantage is when I hold <Alt + hjkl> it’s triggered only once and that’s not what I want. So I’m using the second method.
- The second method is using xkeysnail. It works perfectly and it also has lots of other features.
KDE Settings has some easy to use window management rules. I am now an XFCE user and miss this feature. When I was a KDE user, I had Window Rules to Ignore global shortcuts. This link describes this feature. This particular example doesn’t show how you can limit the rule to a specific application based on some window matching. I had rules for gimp, inkscape, imagemagick, etc. Here’s the KDE Doc for Window Rules. I assume this is still available in Plasma.
