keybinder is a library for registering global keyboard shortcuts. Keybinder works with GTK-based applications using the X Window System.
The library contains
- A C library,
- Gobject-Introspection (gir) generated bindings
Compile and Installation Notes
keybinder compiles against GTK+ 2 while the package
keybinder-3.0 compiles against GTK+ 3. The two packages can be
installed in parallel.
NOTE: the old “
keybinder” is in the branch
keybinder-3.0 is the active development.
Both packages support generating gobject-introspection (gir) bindings,
even if these bindings are more relevant for the future, hence the GTK+
3 package. For
keybinder-3.0, the gir bindings are strongly
recommended over any other language bindings.
If you want to compile with reduced library linking, configure using:
CC="cc -Wl,--as-needed" ./configure
- GTK+ 3.0 (
- gtk-doc 1.14
This library originates in Tomboy and has been widely reused without having a separate release. This package has taken the python bindings from the Deskbar Applet project, and broken it out to a standalone project. The library was subsequently rewritten in major parts.
