Change keyboard shortcuts


Hi. I use the new hybrid Superx. Nice distro.

I need to change the default keyboard shortcuts to change workspaces. How do I do that? thanks.


The default shortcuts for switching desktop workspaces are: Control + 1, Control + 2, Control + 3, Control + 4 .

You can change this, to do so open the Terminal and type: kcmshell4 keys. This will being up the Global shortcut editor.

In th editor, in the dropdown labeled KDE Component, select Kwin. Here you can define your new shortcuts. I have attached a screenshot for your convenience.


Thanks – worked nicely. I wish this ere more intuitive.

I appreciate the help.


We have hidden it as majority of users will just be happy with defaults. And for anyone else, we are here to help :smile:
