I am on a quest and I'm accepting any and all nuggets of wisdom you
might wish to give. The quest is two fold:
a) to get the menu popped with a right click on the root window to
start a terminal with a login shell. Currently it's not and if I
start one with the panel and re-login, then it doesn't seem to be a
b) to assign some arbitrary strings to function keys. I can't find
any none-source documentation for gnome-terminal or kvt which
allows me the sort of functionality that the Translations class
class for xterm does.
I am aware of and would be happy for your guidance on:
a) the fact I might be using the list inappropiately; I have watched
the list for a short time and see much more traffic on the design
and development of gnome apps rather than usage. I am not aware
of a better place I came here from the gnome.org web page.
b) my assumption that gnome apps would rely on X resources for
configuraion information. While most X terminal emulators have
previously used this method, gnome may have a different approach.
I admit to being unaware of it, I have used gnome for less than a
week but I am trying to find this information w/o resorting to
For the record I installed RedHat 6.0 on my desktop PC while a SUN
server was on it's back at work, decided to take a gander at gnome and
while it seems highly configurable I am stymied by the lack of
information about config NOT done by mouse. I am relatively
proficient with Linux and X.
What say you, people?
