Keyboard shortcuts for tab navigation

Drew DeVault
Hello! You might notice that my email subject matches the title of this
ticket:

https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=9585

This is exactly what I've come to you to talk about today. You might
notice my comment on this issue on 2014-02-05. It's now 9 months later
with no motion on the ticket, so I wanted to bring it up here.

On my system, I have a lot of different applications that make use of
Ctrl+PgUp/PgDown to switch between tabs. This includes, in part:
Firefox, HexChat, Thunderbird, MonoDevelop, and gvim. In fact, so many
of my applications use this shortcut that I've bound it to buttons on my
mouse. The only application I have installed that makes use of tabs but
does not use this keyboard shortcut is Thunar.

I can understand the desire to continue supporting a keybinding that is
already established. But give me the opportunity to change it, please.

On a less important note, thunar is also the only application where I
have to double-middle-click to open something in a new tab. If that were
an option, too, it'd be nice, but it's not so jarring as the lack of
Ctrl+PgUp/PgDown support.

Re: Keyboard shortcuts for tab navigation

Hello,

I am looking at this possibility but these shortcuts do not work because when you press GTK_KEY_Page_Up with GTK_CONTROL_MASK Thunar scrolls up and down. If you use another mask, GTK_MOD1_MASK for instance, it works. I do not know if GTK_CONTROL_MASK + GTK_KEY_Page_Up / GTK_KEY_Page_Down collides with another one.

Anyway, I think these are important shortcuts because you can use it in browsers, file manager, terminals, etc.

Cheers.
