[manjaro] let “Super + d” show the desktop

Problem
The “Windows key + d” (aka “Super + d”) minimizes all windows, i.e. it shows you the desktop. It works under Windows, it works under Ubuntu, but for some mysterious reason, under Manjaro (XFCE), it’s “Ctrl + Alt + d” that I’ll never get used to.

How to use the well-known “Super + d” shortcut?

Solution
There must a keyboard shortcut editor for this, but I never find it. So I created a new shortcut that calls a command-line application that minimizes all windows. This way you get the same result. The command-line command for showing the desktop is “wmctrl -k on“. You may have to install the package wmctrl.

Go to the Start menu, start typing “keyboard”, and open the Keyboard application. Go to the “Application Shortcuts” tab and add the “Super + d” shortcut to the command “wmctrl -k on“.
