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


and if i'm not wrong, it seems the future here will be solved by D-Bus:

in time, i hope, this solution/implementation will take hold at the WM level and this problem will be solved in a generic and universal manner for now and ever.  but, as always with new solutions, its universal adoption and implementation will take time.

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)

You do realize there's no way that is gtk responsibility. Global, system
wide hotkey is not for gtk to handle, That is for the window manager/desktop
enviroment/whatever manager you've been running, to catch and then signal
the applications to do something in response.
