Author Topic: [SOLVED]Terminal keybind not working, I must be overlooking something  (Read 20928 times)

I just discovered BB last night and I love it. I'd been spending too much leisure time on Kali, which is bad.  So I am glad I stumbled on BB when I did. It fills a niche.
Anyway, as the title states, I am having a hard time keybinding the terminal. I remapped the default bind in Terminal > editor > preferences first, but the shortcut only spwned a shell when I already had one open. It wouldn't launch one otherwise. So I installed gconf thinking that would solve the problem but again, same thing. I assume there is a tweak that I am overlooking because I've been searching around for posts with similar problems and haven't found any. So it's PEBCAK. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi schema,
you are looking in the wrong place  ;D
What you are looking for is at Settings manager -> Keyboard -> Application Shortcuts. We love XFCE  ;)
I think you should remap back the bind in terminal preferences (if you changed it), or you'll get 2 terminals. Ctrl+Shift+N is the dafault.

Welcome to BackBox!
Have a nice hack!
