Rox Hotkeys

Fed up with having to navigate through to your folder or files from the launched rox-filer? Want to get there in a single or at most 2 clicks? Here's how.

I will use the example of my music and video folders.

Open rox-filer, Menu>Files

Navigate to the folder/file you would like to hotkey to.

 /mnt/hda3/Video
 Press the keys, Ctrl+1

Navigate to Music folder in Rox

 /mnt/hda4/Music
 Press the keys, Ctrl+2

Now, within Rox-filer, pressing the 1 key will take you to your Video folder and pressing key 2 will take you to your Music folder.

Note: You must use numbers.


  • You can also do this through the fluxbox keys file.

Open keys file from Menu>Fluxbox>File Editing>Keys

Add these lines:

 Mod1 v :ExecCommand rox /mnt/hda3/Video
 Mod1 m :ExecCommand rox /mnt/hda4/Music

So Alt+v opens you Video folder and Alt+m your music folder.

Save and click "reconfigure' in fluxbox menu.


  • You can also do this through the fluxbox menu.

Open menu file from Menu>Fluxbox>File Editing>Menu and add:

  [exec] (Video) {rox /mnt/hda3/Video}
  [exec] (Music) {rox /mnt/hda4/Music}

Save and click "reconfigure' in fluxbox menu.
