Re: How to implement a global hot-key listener ?

i think he means system wide, i wanted to do that in the past too
and gtk seems to lack it.
windows can qt maby too but gtk can atm there is a libhotkey for gtk
but it's independent and not very active atm.

so i think system wide hotkey registrations and management is something 
at least GTK 3 should so support!!! (so this is something for the
gtk-devel list i think)

i really like gtk am a gnome user (and started to like vala) but i do
develop a lot of applications who need global hotkey registration
and atm i can't do that with gtk so i might switch...
