Set Ctrl-Alt-T for terminal as default

  8 years ago
  Under dev. review

There is no keyboard shortcut to run terminal enabled as default.I was searching for a few days in various forums to no avail.

I just "discovered" that there is an option for it in keyboard shortcuts and I am now able to use it.I used to give up after reading a bit about XF86(what is that ?) something for volume increase,decrease,XF86WWW etc in the keyboard shortcuts program menu.

It would be nice if a keyboard shortcut is enabled for terminal as default preferably Ctrl-Alt-T as it is the "standard" shortcut.

Thank you for your time.

I am using Linux Mint Maya MATE edition in which it is not enabled by default.I suppose the default implementation in Cinnamon would explain abnvolk's comment.

??? It seems that on my Mint, the shortcut is enabled by default.

One of the main strong points of linux mint is it's balance between ease of use and ability to customize. Perhaps this subject would be better served as a tutorial for those among us who wish to enable the terminal ks.
