Map "super" left key to whisker menu

Add sound events to xfce, there is a cool sound pack at https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1187979/, if you delete all files in "/usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/", copy the ones from the zip and enable "event sounds" it works out of the box! Maybe create an AUR package?

Create a script to automatically optimize "makepkg.conf" with logical number of processors.
The command I use to read the processors is: grep -c ^processor /proc/cpuinfo
Reference:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Makepkg#MAKEFLAGS
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?ti ... ompression

Is there a github page with the code to create the iso?

Thanks for creating this great project
Regards
Sergio Schneider

Map "super" left key to whisker menu
I map mine to super+alt.

I'd actually prefer it to be on super alone, a la windows. But since there are not separate key up/key down events, mapping it to super renders other "super" shortcuts unusable. For me, ideally a key up event for super would be mapped to whisker, and the key down + another key would be mappable to whatever.
