Hotkey

☑ The session can be started with a hotkey. A hotkey consists of one or more modifiers and a key.

Modifiers: A modifier or a combination of several modifiers for the hotkey. You can select a set key symbol/combination or your own key symbol/combination. A key symbol is a defined chain of characters, e.g. Ctrl.

Do not use [AltGr] as a modifier (represented as Mod5). Otherwise, the key that is configured as a hotkey with AltGr cannot be used as a regular key anymore. Example: If you configure [AltGr] + [E] as a hotkey, it is impossible to enter an "e".


These are the pre-defined modifiers and the associated key symbols:

  • (No modifier) = None
  •  = Shift
  • [Ctrl] = Ctrl
  •  = Mod4

    When this keyboard key is used as a modifier, it is represented as Mod4; when it is used as a key, it is represented as Super_L.

  • [Alt] = Alt

Key combinations are formed as follows with |:

  • Ctrl +  = Ctrl|Super_L

Key: Key for the hotkey

To enter a key that does not have a visible character, e. g. the [Tab] key, open a terminal, log on as user and enter xev -event keyboard. Press the key to be used for the hotkey. The text in brackets that begins with keysym contains the key symbol for the Key field. Example: Tab in (keysym 0xff09, Tab)
