Hello. I just recently bought Zorin OS Pro and been looking for a way to rebind CRTL + ALT + DEL so it would launch Htop. As a power and windows user, I'm used to launch windows task manager via this shortcut and I do think many Zorin OS power-users would find it helfpul to launch a similar application in this manner as well.
I coulnt'd find a command to launch it yet. Please let me know the answer if you have it. Thanks.
Htop is not launched as a GUI application, but is a CLI command launched in terminal.
Zorin OS comes with
Have you tested if it suits your needs?
I'd honestly just install it through
sudo apt install htop) and then just add it like this:
Name : Htop
Befehl : x-terminal-emulator -x htop
Ctrl+ Alt+ Delete is usually an embedded command to look at shut-down, logout, reboot options so you would have to look at changing the command for that - is it really that essential?
the settings shortcuts section takes care of that, also it just shows the logout prompt/shutdown prompt (depending on DE)
x-terminal-emulator -x htop it does launch the terminal, but not htop within it.
gnome-system-monitor works fine and is a good alternative.
You may try
gnome-terminal -x htop on Pro and Core and try
xfce4-terminal -x htop on Pro Lite and Lite.
-x is deprecated for Gnome-Terminal, use syntax like this instead:
gnome-terminal -- htop
Brilliant . It works. Thank you so much
