How can I open a new window?

Asked by Pig Monkey on 2012-03-05

Previously I was able to open a new window with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + N. This shortcut has now been changed to setting the tab name (Bug #342444). The `new_window_key` configuration setting doesn't seem to do anything anymore.

Attempt #1:

I have `new_window_key=N` and `set_tab_name_key` removed from `~/.config/sakura/sakura.conf`. I then launch a new Sakura process. Hitting Ctrl + Shift + N causes the tab rename dialog to open. I close the Sakura process, check sakura.conf, and see that `set_tab_name_key=N` has been re-added.

Attempt #2:

I have `new_window_key=N` and `set_tab_name_key=R` in `~/.config/sakura/sakura.conf`. I then launch a new Sakura process. Hitting Ctrl + Shift + N causes nothing to happen. Hitting Ctrl + Shift + R causes the tab rename dialog to open. When I open the config file after closing the process, nothing has changed.

So it seems like Sakura requires `set_tab_name_key` to be set and does not respect `new_window_key`.

How can I setup a keyboard shortcut to open a new window?

From 3.0 version sakura doesn't open new windows. That's a window manager's task.

You can use your window manager launcher or window manager terminal keybingding (typically Ctrl+Alt+T) to open a new terminal.
