Thread: Using meta key to open application dashboard

  1. #1

    Default Using meta key to open application dashboard

    I'm trying to map the meta key to application dashboard (using latte dock), but it seems like it's not possible. I can map meta+something, but I'd really prefer using just the meta. I tried mapping it to alt+F1, as someone suggested as a workaround, but that didn't help. I also tried ksuperkey, but that did nothing.
    Is this possible?

    I think your post is missing info like the Desktop Environment, where your application dashboard is installed from, if errors are thrown then what are they, etc.

    I'm using KDE, and the latte dock was installed from the default repos. I assume the application dashboard is a default KDE one.
    I haven't seen any errors.

    OK, now it works. I did this:
    Q: Can I use my super key to open the app launcher?

    A1: of course you can but you will need to add at your ~/.config/kwinrc file the following code:
    [ModifierOnlyShortcuts]
    Meta=org.kde.lattedock,/Latte,org.kde.LatteDock,activateLauncherMenu
    Then reload KWin with:
    qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin reconfigure
    A2: alternativily you can run commands:
    kwriteconfig5 --file ~/.config/kwinrc --group ModifierOnlyShortcuts --key Meta "org.kde.lattedock,/Latte,org.kde.LatteDock,activateLauncherMenu"
    qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin reconfigure
