    Heey all, I've got a very stupid question.

    I'm pretty new to OSX but I can't find out to start the terminal with the F19 key on my keyboard.

    I did go to -> system preferences -> keyboard -> keycombinations
    and add the terminal with F19 by applications but that doesn't seem to work.

    Can anyone help me out with this problem?

    Already thnx in advance :)

    I use Quicksilver for this type of stuff. You set it up as a "trigger". The keyboard shortcuts only work if there's a menu command, and since there's no menu command to launch Terminal, that won't work.
