View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hotkeys? Can this be done in ubuntu?
July 13th, 2009, 05:19 PM
I want to make a hotkey so that any time I press it commonly used text is placed into whatever document or form I'm currently in. So for example, say I write out my address often so I assign it to a hotkey like Ctrl+G. Then anytime I'm writing an email or a word document or whatever I can just press Ctrl+G and the text is placed into the email/document.
Can this be done in ubuntu?

Thats for multimedia hotkeys on a laptop, not what I'm looking for. I'm looking to assign text to user defined hotkeys.

not veryfied but you ca work with it:
> write a file with your address inside: /myT/text.txt
>then write a script file (= a text file):
#this is my command that paste myaddress
>then save the previuos like /bin/mycommand.sh
> test in a shell:
[jonny@mypc bin]$ ./mycommand.sh
>then go to System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and associate your mycommand.sh to a shortcut
would it work?
