Actually, there's a much easier way:
- - Use the KDE menu editor (right-click on the K menu and select "Menu
- - Create a menu for your own commands -- e.g. "Justins Apps" in my case
- - In that, create entries for all the actions you want to be able to
take, e.g. "Next Track", "Prev Track", "Start Playing", "Stop Playing",
and use the 'Current shortcut key' to set a key binding for each
Name: Stop Playing
Command: xmms --whatever-switch
Current shortcut key: Ctrl-Whatever
- - Save and Quit.
KDE is sensible! ;)
