Any xbindkey experts here that can help me

#1 Post by 14u2ponder » Wed Feb 14, 2018 10:53 am

I have looked through a bunch of information and I can't figure this out. Things I know are that my config file IS being loaded. I see it. Though even cntl + shift + q doesn't work. I just don't know what I am doing wrong.

Sorry, but I have no idea what you're talking about. What config file? Have you defined Ctrl-Alt-q in Settings > Keyboard > Application Shortcuts?
Production: 4.15.0-1-amd64, MX-17.1, AMD FX-4130 Quad-Core, GeForce GT 630/PCIe/SSE2, 8 GB, Kingston SSD 120 GB and WesternDigital 1TB
Testing: AAO 722: 4.15.0-1-386. MX-17.1, AMD C-60 APU, 4 GB

It's part of the xbindkey program. Xbindkeysrc. Basically it allows you to map your mouse buttons and your keyboard shortcuts to key combinations or Mouse clicks.
I know that in Windows tweaks I can set key bindings for programs but that is limited to the keyboard and what I'm really trying to do is map Mouse buttons for a Logitech anywhere 2 Mouse.

it would be useful to post the contents of your configuration file.

It is just the basic config file. Looking at it, cntl + shift + q should do something but it doesn't.

Code: Select all

# For the benefit of emacs users: -*- shell-script -*-
###########################
# xbindkeys configuration #
###########################
#
# Version: 1.8.6
#
# If you edit this file, do not forget to uncomment any lines
# that you change.
# The pound(#) symbol may be used anywhere for comments.
#
# To specify a key, you can use 'xbindkeys --key' or
# 'xbindkeys --multikey' and put one of the two lines in this file.
#
# The format of a command line is:
#    "command to start"
#       associated key
#
#
# A list of keys is in /usr/include/X11/keysym.h and in
# /usr/include/X11/keysymdef.h
# The XK_ is not needed.
#
# List of modifier:
#   Release, Control, Shift, Mod1 (Alt), Mod2 (NumLock),
#   Mod3 (CapsLock), Mod4, Mod5 (Scroll).
#

# The release modifier is not a standard X modifier, but you can
# use it if you want to catch release events instead of press events

# By defaults, xbindkeys does not pay attention with the modifiers
# NumLock, CapsLock and ScrollLock.
# Uncomment the lines above if you want to pay attention to them.

#keystate_numlock = enable
#keystate_capslock = enable
#keystate_scrolllock= enable

# Examples of commands:

"xbindkeys_show" 
  control + shift + q

# set directly keycode (here control + f with my keyboard)
#"xterm"
#  c:41 + m:0x4

# specify a mouse button
#"xterm"
#  control + b:2

#"xterm -geom 50x20+20+20"
#   Shift+Mod2+alt + s
#
## set directly keycode (here control+alt+mod2 + f with my keyboard)
#"xterm"
#  alt + c:0x29 + m:4 + mod2
#
## Control+Shift+a  release event starts rxvt
#"rxvt"
#  release+control+shift + a
#
## Control + mouse button 2 release event starts rxvt
#"rxvt"
#  Control + b:2 + Release

# End of xbindkeys configuration #
