10.3: Use keyboard shortcuts to run arbitrary applications
Authored by: jweaks on Mar 26, '04 12:40:22AM

This old hint has been denied by several responses, including my own experience. Can we get some confirmation on how to make this work? If it doesn't work, why is this tip still up here?
Is there any way to run a script or applet via the Keyboard Shortcuts option in the Keyboard Preference panel?

10.3: Use keyboard shortcuts to run arbitrary applications

This hint STILL only works halfway - the script works as advertised, but the keyboard shortcut produces no results. How can this be done using a keyboard shortcut??

Use Quicksilver

Thanks to everybody who troubleshot this problem and figured out why keyboard commands would not work. Instead of keyboard shortcuts I use Quicksilver to trigger my scripts and it works flawlessly.
