"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. :slight_smile:

Got it. That did it.


You’re welcome! :wink:
