Thread: "Next window" shortcut under gnome Suse 11.2

    Default "Next window" shortcut under gnome Suse 11.2

    I use gnome and connect via VNC. I usually change the shortcut that let's me cycle through windows (like Windows <alt-tab>) to something else like <ctrl-tab> which will work when I connect via a windows client.. But in the keyboards shortcut configuration, I don't see the option, at least under 11.2.

    Can someone point me in the right direction?

    A really interesting alternative would be to enable Desktop Effects and use the mouse-based window switcher (top right corner, by default). But that requires compatibility with the graphics card you may not have.

    Go to Computer > More Applications > GNOME Configuration Editor

    Go under /apps/metacity/global_keybindings
    you'll see a key named switch_windows
    Modify that to your needs and then logout and login.

    Hope it helps.
