Shortcut Overlay

Translation status

A native OS-wide shortcut overlay to be launched by Gala.

This GTK+ applet reads window manager and OS keyboard shortcuts from dconf and exposes them to the user when launched. Inspired by the similar feature of Ubuntu Unity introduced in Ubuntu 12.04.

Screenshot

The shortcut window opens centered on the primary display. The gear in the titlebar opens the system keyboard settings.

Included Shortcuts

We need to decide which shortcuts are included, how they're sorted, and if they're grouped into smaller categories. Read this document to that effect.

Building, Testing, and Installation

You'll need the following dependencies:

  • libgee-0.8-dev
  • libgranite-dev >= 5.4.0
  • libgtk-3-dev
  • meson
  • valac

Run meson build to configure the build environment and then change to the build directory and run ninja to build

meson build --prefix=/usr
cd build
ninja

To install, use ninja install, then execute with io.elementary.shortcut-overlay

sudo ninja install
io.elementary.shortcut-overlay
