[Bug 661829] Re: Cannot set up a trigger for the Calculator key

Found a workaround here:

I searched for the string "Launch (1)" recursively in my directory ~/.kde  and found it in the files


In both files I had to replace "Launch (1)" with "Calculator". Oddly enough I had to replace it with "Calculator", though the terminal application xev actually indicates the name "XF86Calculator" for that key.

After patching the two files, I killed and restarted "kglobalaccel", and
the key now works.
