If you mean you want to navigate using C-n instead of ↓ ...


This is a real GtkWidget, so you can't just change the key-bindings, just as Sawfish can't change the key-bindings for eg. Firefox. But there's a trick.


window-matcher keymap-trans.




( add-window-matcher '(( WM_CLASS . "THE_WINDOWS_WM_CLASS" ))

'(( keymap-trans . (( "C-n" "Down")))))


That means: you press C-n, but the window receives Down. With that you can basically "adjust" any windows' key-bindings to your likes.
