Hi to Everyone,
On my new Debian Stretch with Gnome 3.22, I wanted to define a keyboard
shortcut to launch an Xterm. If I go to 'Settings' ==> 'Parameters' ==>
'Keyboard', and '+' at the bottom of the list so as to add a new
personnalized shortcut, a new box get displayed, in which I am supposed
to write a name, a command name, and define a shortcut. As for 'name', I
entered 'Terminal', and as for command name, I wrote :'gnome-terminal',
since this is what works in a terminal whenever you want to open an
But this didn't work ! Once this entered, the system did not allow me
to define a keyboard shortcut, only to 'modify'.
I tried to replace 'gnome-terminal' by '/usr/bin/gnome-terminal' and by
'.//usr/bin/gnome-terminal', but none of these worked either.
What should I do to enter that personalized keyboard shortcut ?
Thanks in advance for your help
