Custom hotkeys?

I have this extra windows key on my keyboard, and I thought of making it control rhythmbox or something else like that. Is it possible to set "Super_L + z/x/c/v/b" to do something? If it is, then I'd like to know how. I guess it involves tweaking some x.org files.

by the way: why gnome's hotkey editor doesn't take "Super_L + something" commands? it works only with Ctrl and Alt

Are you using Gnome or KDE? If the latter, you can do this from the KDE Control Center: Select Regional & Accessibility -> KHotkeys. It may take a bit of experimenting to find the correct window settings, but I do what you want to do with XMMS just fine.

I'm using Gnome. If possible, I'd like to have those hotkeys work without depending on any particular windowmanager (like....X-wide?) I think there was someone asking the same on gentoo forums, but I never saw an answer to it.

Here's a guide I wrote some time ago for custom hotkeys in GNOME: http://foolish.fedorausers.org/gnome...uts/index.html

I want to assign my useless windows key to ctrl
so when I press the windows key KDE must behave as if pressed the ctrl key
How do I do this?

There are several place in KDE to over-ride/set hotkeys - they're all in the Control Center.

I tried that, and you can't put "<Super_L>z" in there. Gnome doesn't seem to understand the win-key as a modifier key or something.
