I'm on Kubuntu 6.10 with KDE 3.5.5. I'm puzzled by the
behavior of accelerator keys, which sometimes work and
sometimes don't. For example, Firefox has a "_T_ools"
menu which I can get to with alt-t. Kate also has a
"_T_ools" menu, but alt-t in Kate doesn't work as an
accelerator; it just puts a "t" into the current document.
It seemed odd that accelerator keys would work in a
non-KDE-native app and not in a native one. Figured that
might be a clue, so I looked in the "Keyboard Shortcuts"
section of System Settings. Couldn't find any assignment
Any help appreciated; it would be nice to be able to avoid
reaching for the mouse so often.
