If you're using JWM, take a peek at /root/.jwmrc and /root/.jrm/jwmrc-personal for hotkey assignments:

Code:

<Key mask="A" key="Tab">next</Key>
<Key mask="A" key="F4">close</Key>
<Key mask="A" key="#">desktop#</Key>
<Key mask="A" key="F1">root:1</Key>
<Key mask="A" key="F2">window</Key>


Translation:

ALT-TAB will switch to the next application tab in the active workspace
ALT-F4 will close the currently active foreground application
ALT-1, ALT-2, etc. switches to the workspace number of choice
ALT-F1 is like clicking the menu button
ALT-F2 opens the ROX window for the existing app

You can edit /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal and modify existing or add new keyboard shortcuts. For instance, my F1-F12 keys are configured to open email, browser, text editor, terminal, irc client, ROX-filer, dillo, MUT, AbiWord, Bluefish, hv3 and gxine, respectively - one key launches.

Besides being allergic to iceWM, The Alien doesn't do Dew due to addiction to caffiene in another form, and nicotine: preferably Starbucks Gold Coast Extra Bold and Bali Shag Blue.

Thanks, but I tried that and it did not do it. Tried it again though, still no joy. Maybe I have the wrong keyboard installed.

@DaveS

At the command line (console or terminal), type: xev

Then hit the Windows Menu key and not how xev identifies the key. With my keyboard, it's "Menu."

AJ,

I thought xev was taken away from us? What version are you at?

xev is attached for anyone who doesn't have it.

offs!

When I do use Puppy, it's v2.12. I just booted 4.00 on the laptop and sure enough, xev is gone! Dammit.

Wonder what was the justification for removing such a helpful app? Certainly wasn't due to its size.

For the record,

The Puppy 'desktop' is a clever mix of two programs, (1) JWM and (2) Rox-Filer

The menu items are JWM items, the desktop items are Rox-Filer items, both have keyboard shortcuts. The Rox-Filer is easy and intuitive to set.

What gets precedence and under what circumstances, I don't know.

Do you have a show desktop button? If not, you can edit ~/.jwmrc-tray, to make one.

Then

<TrayButton popup="Show Desktop" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/showdesk16.xpm">showdesktop</TrayButton>

Another favorite of mine

<TrayButton popup="Xkill" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-bomb.xpm">exec:xkill</TrayButton>

If these lines display as two lines on your browsers: unwrap them into one line for use.
