    Default Shortcut to application launcher?

    Hi. Anyone knows if there is any keyboard shortcut key to the main suse menu (appliation launcher), so that I wouldn't have to click with the mouse on that "green lizzard"; or maybe how can I create one shortcut for it. I'm on suse 11.1. Thanks for help.

    The default is Alt+F1.

    You can change it in Configure Desktop --> Keyboard & Mouse --> Keyboard Shortcuts --> under "KDE component" select "Plasma Workspace" --> change Application Launcher shortcut.

    For some reason its not working here

    freedguy, I just stumbled upon a solution to the problem with ignored keyboard shortcut to start Application Launcher

    Compare your ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc with another user on the same machine, e.g. login as root.

    The entry

    [Containments][3][Applets][17][Shortcuts]
    global=Alt+F1

    had disappeared from my ~/.kde4//share/config/plasma-appletsrc for some reason. Put that entry below the entry

    [Containments][3][Applets][17]
    geometry=0,2,36,36
    immutability=1
    plugin=launcher
    zvalue=0

    and make sure that [Applets][17] is the same for the two entries - edit the
    [Containments][3][Applets][17][Shortcuts]
    line to match your launcher's entry.

    I hope it helps.

    Best regards, and good luck !

    thanks fredvej, i had the same problem and your solution worked for me, too. i just added an entry with the format

    [Containments][3][Applets][nn][Shortcuts]
    global=<key here>

    to the ~/.kde4/share/config/plasma-appletsrc, where [nn] is the number of the launcher applet entry in the file. then logout+login and it was working.
