SettingsConfigure Shortcuts

Opens a dialog which allows you to configure the Krusader key bindings.

With the Import shortcuts and Export shortcuts buttons you can load and save a Key-binding profile. This allows Krusader to have the Total Commander©, Midnight Commander, foo-commander, or your custom Key-bindings. The only limitation is that global Plasma™ key-bindings and some Krusader key-bindings cannot be changed yet, as well as some features in foo-commander that we either do not have or need. The Key-bindings are stored in /usr/share/krusader, contains a description, foo.keymap is an ini file that holds the Key-bindings. Until Krusader-1.70.1 this was a binary file, Krusader is backwards compatible for importing this legacy binary format. If a * text file exists, Krusader will display it, showing additional information regarding the loaded Key-bindings file. Here you have a chance to exit without importing the proposed Key-bindings file.


A Total Commander© Key-bindings file is provided. Please upload your favorite Key-bindings schemes so that they become available for the Krusader community. Thanks!
