Hmm, yeah, that's true, you need to define keyboard shortcuts to make is
For anyone who doesn't know, you can make a ~/.gtkrc-2.0 with this line
gtk-can-change-accels = 1
and then you can change keyboard shortcuts in menus, by typing them
while highlighting the menu item.
I have bound ? to select if, / to path entry and . to run a shell
So, I just removed some emacs autosaves:
? -> '#*' <Enter> -> . -> rm "$@"
xterm -e mc works fine too, of course ;-)
