Ubuntu – Set a hotkey to show an auto-hiding Plasma panel


I've set my Plasma panel to auto-hide.

How do i map a hotkey to pop out the panel so that i can have a look at it without moving my hand off the keyboard to the mouse and then dragging the mouse all the way down the screen?

I've looked into the Global Keyboard Shortcuts control, found the Plasma Desktop Shell section, but failed to find a relevant item.

Best Answer

Toggle Panel | Panel Toggle

There are (at least) two plasmoids to toggle the panel visibility. Both have the option to add the keyboard shortcut.

From the old KDE svn playground: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/togglepanel/

From the KDE-Apps.org: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=149654
