How to update shortcuts

Update sparky-desktop-data package to the latest version, then:

LXQt

Copy the file:

/usr/share/sparky-desktop-data/lxqt/skel/.config/openbox/lxqt-rc.xml

to:

~/.config/openbox/

then restart Openbox:

openbox --restart

Openbox

Copy the file:

/usr/share/sparky-desktop-data/openbox/skel/.config/openbox/rc.xml

to:

~/.config/openbox/

then restart Openbox:

openbox --restart

Xfce

Add the shortcuts manually:

Web browser:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>w" --create --type string --set "x-www-browser"

Email client:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>m" --create --type string --set "exo-open --launch Mailreader"

Terminal emulator:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>t" --create --type string --set "x-terminal-emulator"

Screenshot:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/Print" --create --type string --set "xfce4-screenshooter"

Thunar:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>e" --create --type string --set "thunar"

Printer:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>p" --create --type string --set "system-config-printer"

Monitor:

xfconf-query --channel xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts --property "/commands/custom/<Super>d" --create --type string --set "xfce4-display-settings -- minimal"

It can chanage your fonts settings, so reset it via the Xfce Config tool back after.
