[SOLVED] Using multiple non-modifier keys in Openbox keybindings

Hello,

I'm new to bunsenlabs and used #! a long time ago. Yesterday, I downloaded it again and am configuring the keybindings of Openbox. All is working, except that I'm unhappy with some keybinds. I'd like to use the following keybinding: Super+Ctrl+Left+Up to resize the window to a quarter of the screen estate and move it to the top left. The resizing and moving is no problem, however, I have to use a different (and somewhat unintuitive) keybinding. Is there a way to use a keybinding with two non-modifier keys?

Edit: Just found out about keychains. Still a bit of a hassle having to release the keys before pressing the next one.

Thx a lot!

You could map another key as a modifier, or specify eg Ctrl_R, AltGr (use xev to get the signifier)

Super+Ctrl+Left+Up

What is that binding currently mapped to?

If something you don't use often (or at all) change it, then set up "Super+Ctrl+Left+Up" for your resize and move.

i was going to suggest that.

you could also use the keypad numbers, that would also give you the diagonals (7,9,3,1).
without keychaining.

please mark your thread SOLVED by editing the first post.

Thank you for your answers! Unfortunately, my keyboard doesn't have a numpad. I'll stick to using a keychain.
