Description Thomas Bettler 2004-12-08 01:16:33 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.1)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages
OS:                Linux

I would be crazy cool if you could add a special tab to "window-specific settings" -> "modify" -> new tab "key events".

There you could select/add several critical key combinations - the ones normally catched up by KDE - (i.e. Ctrl+Alt+Del, Alt+F4, Ctrl+Fx, ... maybe based upon "keyboard shortcuts") to be redirected to the application level and ignored by KDE.

I'll give an example.
I run win4lin in kde.
Pressing Alt+F4 doesn't affect the mswindows application but instead tries to close the win4lin application.
Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't affect mswindows but instead asks to shutdown kde/Linux.

Theese are my whishes.

Has anyone a better idea / another solution, just tell me.
* But I don't like another Xsession only for win4lin, neither I want to change the shortcuts for KDE.
