Hi all !

I need to integrate Xbindkeys in my customized ISO of Porteus Kisok with the correct configuration (it's a lot simpe, it have to call a wget with a url when F12 it's pressed).

I am not able to find a way to add Xbindkeys beacuse it's not available as static complied program with all dependencies.

Of course for me it's suitable also any alternative can work with Porteus Kiosk for do same thing.

Thanks,

Hello BlackCat,

You could use openbox key bindings for this task:
http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Bindings

Have a look on /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml from 003-settings.xzm module. We have some bindings present there already.

Thanks
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Ok, tomorrow i try this, but i not understand if i can add a executable with parameters as action.
I ask beacuse i have read that i can only do actions, and as i have read the action:
http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Actions
I can't use an executable. wget in my case. Maybe with "execute" i have to try this.

And also...i have to made a new module with the /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml costumized file, like 005-customkey.xzm, right ?


Another question not related with this:
It's possibile open a webpage with shh, with same parameters as the normal browsing (so using same delay to reboot the browser, etc ?) i have try but i havent' find the correct command.
