View Full Version : Can KWin global shortcuts be disabled by an application?

5th May 2014, 09:19
I am porting a .Net application to Qt. Unfortunately the original application run under Windows and uses shortcuts such as ALT+F3, which are captured by KWin. I know KDE can be configured to ignore such shortcuts for a specific application, but is there a way for the application to request it programmatically? I`d like to save users the trouble.

Not sure if it can be done programmatically, but the application could most likely install a rule file.
