XFCE is a great DE but I'm a little irked at their choice to use Ctrl+Esc to open the "start" menu

I would also like to see pinning to the taskbar become a thing. It's annoying enough that the Whisker Menu is opened with non-standard keys, but then you can't even use the taskbar as a dock?

@brandon you can change both of those things. There is a keyboard shortcut manager, as well as the ability to add launchers to the dock


@blaubachn making the super key as the whisker menu is a problem now though. I can't snap my windows anymore

@brandon Yeah, I usually do super+<another key>. Lately I've been using super+d since that's the default i3 config, and I've been using i3 a bit.

@brandon Or if you are running xubuntu, i believe xfce4-appfinder might be mapped to super+r by default
