[xubuntu-users] Switching workspace with Alt-Function keys?

Okay, I found the doc on this and see that you type 
your shortcut when the window pop ups and asks you 
to compose it.

I didn't realize it was then you simply composed 
your shortcut as it recorded your key strokes.

I did a lot of acid in the 60s, folks, and I was 
only 5 in the 60s! (Just kidding)

Anyway, I am totally loving Xubuntu. The OS is fast 
and responsive on our workstations, and the desktop 
is the best I've seen!

By tomorrow we'll have all our machines on it!

I'm going to put it in my signature!
