With KDE you can set any key or a combination of keys to trigger an action on your computer. As an example: when I pause my work I want to lock my screen with the Pause key so my colleagues cannot baggy-pants me. Here is how to do that.

  • Call the command systemsettings
  • Select Shortcuts and GesturesCustom ShortcutsEditNewGlobal ShortcutCommand/URL and enter Pause

  • In the Trigger tab, click on None
  • Press the Pause key
  • Go to the Action tab
  • Enter
qdbus org.kde.screensaver /ScreenSaver org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.Lock

or (whatever works)

/usr/lib64/kde4/libexec/kscreenlocker_greet

or (whatever works)

/usr/lib64/kde4/libexec/kscreenlocker --forcelock
  • Click Apply
  • test it by pressing the Pause key
