[INFO] Tip to disable Alt + left key / Alt + right key variety behaviour

Post by javierar » Sun Nov 12, 2017 6:55 am

You may have noticed that when you press Alt + left key / Alt + right key in your browser or file manager you don't get the expected behaviour (going back and forth on your history). That's because Variety, the (awesome, by the way) desktop wallpaper changer binds those key combinations to cycle the available wallpapers. To delete those key combinations type 'keyboard' on the launcher:

In the application, go to the 'Application Shortcuts' tab. Find 'variety -n' and 'variety -p'. They are duplicated since Variety binds Alt + N and Alt + P for cycling the available wallpapers. Remove the shortcuts that use Alt + left key / Alt + right key. You have have restored the expected behaviour of such combinations! :D

Thanks for this tip.

I didn't really care about changing wallpapers and couldn't effectively use my file manager.

Really is a great tool for learning linux generally and arch linux specifically.
