I'm trying out gnome shell on my test machine to see if I will be running it on my main machine in the future. Right now I really like the way it is set up but I have some questions that I can't seem to find answers to on any of the online literature (most of the gnome shell stuff seems to be outdated and mostly useless to me).
The first question is: Is there a way for me to bind keyboard/mouse buttons to various gnome features? For example, right now if you go to the top left of gnome shell it will take you to a kind of overview of your workspaces and applications, is there a way to do that via a mouse gesture or keyboard sequence?
Second question: One of the new features in gnome shell is the ability to use the 'sidebar', which allows you to quickly access applications and such. Is there a way to get a different theme for this or are you stuck with the gray one that it comes with?
Right now those are the only two questions that I have (I just started using it a short time ago) but the first one in particular is very important to me and if anyone knows the answer, please share.
EDIT: There has to be a script that is being run upon the mouseover of the top left. I just need to know that script so that I can bind it in compiz and do it that way. Or if there is an easier way, meh, I guess that'll work as well
