Hi! The problem is that while in a game (windowed) my terminal dropdown hotkey is still active.
I’m already running a script that continually checks whether I’m in the game (for doing mouse settings), so I’d like to control my hotkey in there too.
Is that possible?
thanks for the reply, but that’s not really what I want.
However I got an idea, instead of binding the key to the xfce4-terminal command directly I just bind it to a script where I wrap the command in a condition, checking if Overwatch is not the focused application. And, after checking, this doesnt work unfortunately as the key is blocked by the OS. The game doesnt receive the input. Seems I have to stick with my original idea of disabling the hotkey when in game.
I asked at xfce directly (unfortunately cant give link). Looks like it’s not possible to change shortcuts programatically
Then perhaps you can search for another application that manages the shortcuts? No, I don’t have examples, as I’ve never needed something like that. But I’, sure there must be something like it out there…
You can change the shortcut for a command using xfconf-query, see few examples here :
works perfectly, thanks a lot! Why wouldn’t I find this via searching …
