Re: [vox-tech] what Windowmaker has that Gnome does not


I think that's the window manager thing, not the Gnome thing.  'Cuz when
Gnome runs, it runs alongside a window manager, there are some things that
Gnome manages and some things that window manager manages, and some things
that are managed by both.  I think what you want to do depends on the
window manager side of management, not Gnome's side (though I guess Gnome
*could* do it, too.)

So if you want to do what you wanna do under Gnome, you might wanna tell
Gnome to use a different window manager that does support such shortcut.
Then look in that window manager's control panel for options for such

Gnome + FVWM is awesome... (JUST KIDDING!!!)
