Global key/shortcut for Delete and Next features

Asked by Adrian Skar on 2014-08-12

I'd like to be able to use the function "Delete to Trash" using a custom global hotkey/shortcut (i.e: Ctrl + Alt + Home).
I don't know if it is possible but I think Global Hotkeys is one of those features that make apps even more awesome.
Thank you!

Run /opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety --help.
Use your global keyboard configuration to define shortcuts for any of the available commands.

Great, thank you!

For those using Ubuntu 14.04 and Gnome this might help when using the Delete to Trash function (on an existing custom entry):

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom1/ name "Trash Variety"

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom1/ command "/opt/extras.ubuntu.com/variety/bin/variety -t"

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.media-keys.custom-keybinding:/org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/media-keys/custom-keybindings/custom1/ binding "<Control><Alt>End"
