      I posted a list of all the shortcuts from keys and preferences with which works or not in the “improvements” thread.

      So far no one has said its an issue with just my machines (I tried them on 2 different brand laptop keyboards and external USB standard keyboards on fresh 17.3.1 installs)

      I do have a working set of keyboard shortcuts that provide nice functionality based on what keys do work

      I can post that here for comment if you like.

        I found “VolumeDown” not working.
        Fixed by inserting a space after the tailend minus sign

        key “Alt+Ctrl+KP_Divide” amixer -c 0 set Master 5- # lower volume

        Noted: NumLock must be off for the “Set Volume” keybinds to work, but I found NumLock=On is set when I logged in to desktop session (dunno whether that’s the default behavior or something I’ve set).

        key “Alt+Ctrl+KP_Add” amixer sset Master toggle # mute on/off

        Does not work.
        Noted: Right-clicking the VolumeIcon tray icon }} Preferences }} HotKeys, mute is assigned to XF86AudioMute.
        I don’t have a multimedia kb & have no idea which, if any, of the keys on this “generic 101-key keyboard” is mapped to XF86AudioMute.

        The same VolumeIcon prefs would be recognized across WMs, right? Maybe those (VolumeIcon prefs) should/must be set to same keycombos specified in the “keys” config file for each of the WMs? Wait, the VolumeIcon audio hotkeys are not “checkmarked” by default, so would just be ignored?

        BobC, I am TERRIBLE at using|memorizing proprietary (*cough*, custom) desktop session global kb shortcuts.
        right-click VolumeIcon, choose OpenMixer.
        whyWHYwhy does pressing Ctrl+Shift_KP_Divide (with NumLock=Off) cause the window to close?
        set NumLock=On and repeat. Oh, now that keybind causes alsamixer to invite changing “Select File”.
        Test Ctrl+Shift_KP_Divide (with NumLock=Off, and again On) while leafpad window has focus. No effect.
        alsamixer. Press F2, read help. Does it mention Ctrl+Shift_KP_Divide? Nope.
        This tiny experiment reminds/reinforces my impression that “shortycuts” are too maddeningly inconsistent for me to wrestle with.

        ——————-

        FWIW, in my iceWM key file, I found all entries other than wingrid and audio-related are outcommented.
        I can’t recall whether that is/was the default.
        Okay, uncommenting all the “suggested” and “example” entries to test them.
        (here, I re-discover that iceWM lacks the ‘Reconfigure’ command of fluxbox, so must logout/login for changes to take effect after editing “keys” file) (instead, I cheated, restarted iceWM by using OtherDesktops}fluxbox ..then OtherDesktops}iceWM)

        Among the “Suggested”,
        I attempt to entirely avoid “desktop-defaults-run”, preferring to launch a specific “best tool for the job” on a case-by-case basis, but for sake of testing…

        Alt+F2 works (yah, I do frequently use that one, in fluxbox session)
        next 2 in the list work, then “Ctrl+Shift+t”. Well, it tries to do SOMETHING (dunno what. I didn’t see a new process in htop afterward.)
        The remainder of the “Suggested” entries still (I last tested these during antiX17 betatesting) do work.
        No, I don’t agree, wouldn’t “suggest” a sysadmin enable these ~~ especially not “xkill” nor “Surprise! desktop-session-exit”.
        “Ctrl+Alt+a” desktop-defaults-run -a
        ^—- I’m also reminded that, in the absence of inline explanatory comments, user has no idea (g’head, enable it and find out?) what these are/do

        The “example” entries (are accompanied by explanatory comments, yay!) are mostly redundant with the “suggested” entries. All of these still work, per my testing today.

          I’ll mention a couple points of wingrid “weirdness” I discovered during testing. First, after using the “maximize” keybind, the window titlebar restore/maximize button failed to have an effect (unless/until you close and relaunch the program running in the affected window). Second, after using the “arrange top” (?) keybind, the window became stuck-to-top-edge (dragging titlebar downward had no effect).

          https://www.antixforum.com/forums/topic/improvements-and-looks/page/3/#post-14919from Preferences
          does nothing – KeyWinArrangeN=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_8″
          does nothing – KeyWinArrangeNE=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_9″

          Wha? Where are N, SW, NE keybinds? Not seen in my ~/.icewm/keys file

          doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspacePrevTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Left”
          doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspaceNextTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Right”
          doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspaceLastTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Down”

          Aha, you’re referring to content of ~/.icewm/preferences

          Yeah, defaults mismatched vs docs vs manpages… vs actual code in the current version. I wrestled with same when revamping fluxbox.
          antiX using icewm, as maintained by bbidulock, and
          KeySysWorkspacePrevTakeWin is (still) mentioned in those pod|documentation, but seems to be absent from the code (so no-op)

          Probably the best hope for (eventually) resolving the no-ops you found would be to open an issue ticket at http://github.com/bbidulock/icewm/issues

            skidoo, I think we are in agreement that the keys we have set that are live by default should at least work?

            I saw other distros had the sound control keys mapped using the X names rather than to specific keys, but I only own one keyboard with those keys and would have to risk life and limb to steal my wife’s keyboard. Sadly, she probably never uses those keys.

            I would be fine with removing the ones that don’t work, since if they don’t work anyway, there really isn’t much point, and worse, because they are mapped, any attempt at parsing the mappings will produce wrong information of keys that don’t function as expected, which is what happened to me… Just imagine if we could edit a list, like IceSound, or better yet, parse them to load data for a graphical remap program that would show a picture like representation of the keyboard and light up the special functions as you pressed the modifier keys, and allow you to go edit those mappings, and save the changed map, generating new keys and preferences… But no degree of coolness has any hope of ever working if the defaults don’t actually function.

            Are you saying that restarting IceWM doesn’t work for changing IceWM key mappings? If true, I should retest changes that I didn’t think worked.

            The ones that really frustrated me were the ones to move, cascade, tile and arrange windows. Or maybe I didn’t understand what they were supposed to do.

            The WinGrid ones did work, thankfully.

            I came up with a pretty good layout, in general. One thing I would like would be a Center/partial zoom window, that would take it from 1/4 screen size, and instead move it to center, bring it to front, and increase the size to 2/3 or 3/4 of the screen, and be able to toggle it back to its corner, or maximize to full screen. I was looking at the WinGrid code and came to the conclusion that its pretty doable. I had created that once before for my Brief Editor under DOS as a macro there once upon a time, and loved it.

            I will reply more later… Yes, I didn’t know that page was now the real IceWM, and I also see there is a newer version there…

            PS: On maximize, I don’t think its a good idea to use 2 different maximize systems, and would not use the WinGrid one.

            As for the NoOps as you call them, I didn’t know they were missing from the code. Perhaps a Wingrid mover could be created if none of those can be made to work, if its actually important to have those functions. I think its fine to just use the Window menu’s move option, myself, but don’t like having the keys assigned if they aren’t going to perform the expected functions, or worse, will do something unexpected.

              Ok, I created a new WinGrid option called centerzoom, filename /usr/local/bin/wingrid-centerzoom.sh and it works on Ctrl+Alt+Keypad 5 with numlock off (called KP_Begin). Try holding down Ctrl+Alt and going around the numeric pad slowly in sequence 12369874151 to get a feel for how it works

              Here are my entries in ~/.icewm/keys for wingrid and volume controls

              ### Wingrid 
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Left" wingrid-left.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Right" wingrid-right.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Up" wingrid-top.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Down" wingrid-bottom.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Home" wingrid-topleft.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Prior" wingrid-topright.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_End" wingrid-bottomleft.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Next" wingrid-bottomright.sh
              ####key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Insert" wingrid-maximize.sh
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Begin" wingrid-centerzoom.sh
              ####key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Subtract" wingrid-close.sh
              ###
              ###Set Volume
              key "Ctrl+Alt+Num_Lock" amixer sset Master toggle # KP NumLock Mute
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Divide" amixer -c 0 set Master 5- # KP / Volume -5%
              key "Ctrl+Alt+KP_Multiply" amixer -c 0 set Master 5+ # KP * Volume +5%
              

              Here is the code for /usr/local/bin/wingrid-centerzoom.sh give it a try

              #!/bin/sh

              Summary:
                 The screen is notionally divided into 4 rectangles in a 2x2 grid.
                 Each window may occupy any 1, any 2 adjacent, or all 4 rectangles.
                 Launching is normally done using the keyboard via a combined key press.
                 The combination of keys are assigned by the system window manager and can 
                 be reassigned if desired.

                I didn’t know that page was now the real IceWM

                Technically, it is… but, in practice it is not.

                as does the debian/control file within the debian-maintained package.

                Both the debian and antiX packaging strip out the “genpref” utility provided by the author,
                but during package build it is run, and it generates /usr/share/icewm/preferences

                  wingrid is independent of icwWM, works (or does not work, heh heh) with other window managers also.

                  We’ve covered testing the icewm “keys” file.
                  Repost here the list of “broken” deprecated//invalid preferences you’ve found in the shipped /etc/skel/icewm/preferences file.
                  Fixing or dropping those are within the scope of this topic.

                  Wingrid customization is a separate consideration. If you have a dapper “for icewm” set of working wingrid keybinds, y’all (not me) can decide whether antiX ought to ship ’em in place of the currently shipped wingrid keybinds.

                    skidoo, Here is the IceWM keyboard shortcuts test results. I only brought up the WinGrid because it was suggested to use it last time I was having problems with the supposedly built in IceWM functions to arrange the windows which my testing showed to not work. Thanks for your time and suggestions. All of the non-working options are commented out in all the other distros I tested (most recent release of each).

                    I installed Absolute Linux, Debian 9, and OpenSuse Leap 15, Mageia, Slackopup, and Scientific Linux, all with IceWM setup to try to find an IceWM desktop with keyboard shortcuts that work similar to antiX, and few have many keys redefined, none have the window tiling or cascade or window/workspace options for the keys, so I can’t tell if they are is an IceWM issues or not, other than to say all of them also occur on my Dell D620 laptop as well as my HP DV9000 series laptop, with and without external keyboard.

                    Here are the results of testing all the keys mapped. I wonder if I need to be using a special keyboard somehow for my HP DV9000 series laptop (17″ with separate numeric keypad built in):

                    from Preferences
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeN=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_8″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeNE=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_9″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeE=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_6″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeSE=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_3″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeS=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_2″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeSW=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_1″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeW=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_4″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeNW=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_7″
                    does nothing – KeyWinArrangeC=”Ctrl+Alt+KP_5″

                    works – KeySysSwitchNext=”Alt+Tab”
                    works – KeySysSwitchLast=”Alt+Shift+Tab”

                    works – KeySysWinNext=”Alt+Esc”
                    works – KeySysWinPrev=”Alt+Shift+Esc”
                    works – KeySysWinMenu=”Shift+Esc”

                    not tested – KeySysDialog=”Alt+Ctrl+Del”

                    works – KeySysMenu=”Ctrl+Esc”
                    works – KeySysWindowList=”Alt+Ctrl+Esc”
                    works – KeySysAddressBar=”Alt+Ctrl+Space”

                    works – KeySysWorkspacePrev=”Alt+Ctrl+Left”
                    works – KeySysWorkspaceNext=”Alt+Ctrl+Right”
                    works – KeySysWorkspaceLast=”Alt+Ctrl+Down”
                    doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspacePrevTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Left”
                    doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspaceNextTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Right”
                    doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspaceLastTakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+Down”
                    works – KeySysWorkspace1=”Alt+Ctrl+1″
                    works – KeySysWorkspace2=”Alt+Ctrl+2″
                    probably works if workspace was active – KeySysWorkspace3=”Alt+Ctrl+3″
                    probably works if workspace was active – KeySysWorkspace4=”Alt+Ctrl+4″
                    doesn’t move the window, same as without shift – KeySysWorkspace1TakeWin=”Alt+Ctrl+Shift+1″

                      I cleaned up the wording and posted an issue on github. Maybe there is something else causing some of them not to work.

                        Yes, weird. In case I didn’t mention it earlier, while in iceWM I discovered that an F5 keypress (while firefox window had focus) caused antiX ControlCenter to luanch, vs the expected “Reload this browser page/tab”

                          the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+WorkSpace# isn’t properly (as per the the preferences config file) moving an Application/Window from one WorkSpace to another. This can be done with the mouse by Right Clicking on the Window and choosing “Move To”.

                          This does work properly when using antiX with Debian 10 Testing/Buster which has ICEWM 1.4.3~pre20180822 but it does not work with Debian 9 Stable/Stretch which uses IceWM 1.4.2. Not sure if this is an antiX or an IceWM issue. Regardless, it would be great to have this functionality (whatever the key combo) out-of-the-box in AntiX 19.x.

                          I mentioned this here:

                            TBH our icewm .configs are very old and clearly need changing. However, I’m not too concerned about changing them for antiX-17x series (and earlier).

                            If you want to make changes, I suggest you make them for our next buster/stable release.

                            Icewm version (and its config files) can be found in debian/buster here.

                            http://packages.debian.org/buster/icewm

                            Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

                            antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

                              I was doing some more testing and found that many of the functions with problems work if I remap them to different keys.

                              Not that I am any authority, but I like things setup so that each level of the system uses a different modifier or modifier combination, so that the Window manager ones are different than the combined terminal and command line program ones, and different than the x-window application ones as well. I also like it where navigation can be dome easily with the numeric keypad rose when numlock is off. It makes it easy to remember what does what that way and avoids problems.

                              I’ve decided that I should stop asking others to do anything that I like, and so there is no need to change the keyboard anything to suit me at this point. I need to learn about dotfile management in my spare time, I guess. If anyone has antiX based dotfile management working, please fill me in. Thanks…

                                They MUST be different, else will conflict. Window manager (its global keybinds) gets first dibs.
                                Only if the keycombo doesn’t match any of the defined global (wm config) does it passthru to the application window having focus.

                                Inside the context of a terminal emulator window, the shell in use (commonly “bash”) as well as the configuration of a given program can introduce new keybinds and override existing (key mappings recognized by the parent process). Example: launch nano editor ~~ it is configured to swallow/ignore Ctrl+C

                                  I have all the IceWM functions that I need working on my laptop keyboard as well as external keyboard. Hierax-ca can see if I met his needs as well. I would also be willing to help test this when a new version is in process. Here are the helpfile, keys, preferences, and wingrid-centerzoom.sh used:

                                  Summary:
                                     The screen is notionally divided into 4 rectangles in a 2x2 grid.
                                     Each window may occupy any 1, any 2 adjacent, or all 4 rectangles.
                                     Launching is normally done using the keyboard via a combined key press.
                                     The combination of keys are assigned by the system window manager and can 
                                     be reassigned if desired.  
                                     Optional configuration items are available in
                                     /home/USERNAME/.config/wingrid/wingrid.conf
