Use xbindkeys to change KDE 5 virtual desktop

April 10, 2017

Content of .xbindkeysrc for use with my M570 trackball…

"qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin org.kde.KWin.previousDesktop"
   b:8

"qdbus org.kde.KWin /KWin org.kde.KWin.nextDesktop"
   b:9

Using xte commands is also an option…

"xte 'keydown Alt_L' 'key Left' 'keyup Alt_L'"
   b:8
