    Keyboard shortcut

    Ubuntu 12.04

    I am trying to create a keyboard shortcut to "simple scan". I enter a new custom shortcut and name it simple scan and use the same name as the command. I give it the key combo of ctrl+s.

    It does not work.

    I tried opening it in a terminal using the same command and it does not open that way either.

    The app is installed as I just used it. <g>

    What am I doing wrong.

    Thanks in advance. Bob.

    Any time you are adding a shortcut. You have to hit add then under command use the
    script to run it with your key command. Like open a Terminal "gnome-terminal" without quotes.

    How about "simple-scan" without quotes.

    If you run this in a terminal below, copy and paste it in a termial you will get a text file
    with all your installed with the correct correct command in your Home.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg --get-selections > installedsoftware
    You can also look in Ubuntu software center and hit "more info" and will give you correct command for any software (under version.)

    Copied and pasted "sudo dpkg --get-selections > installedsoftware" into a terminal and all it did was return me to a prompt.

    That is what it is suppose to do, now look in your Home and there will be the text file with all your software in alphabetical order.

    And just simple-scan worked!
    glad you got the hang of it.
