xbindkeys is an open source command-line software written in C and designed to associate mouse buttons or keyboard keys to shell commands under Linux-based operating systems.

With proper configuration, users will be able to use xbindkeys to start many Linux shell commands, just by using their keyboard or the mouse buttons. For example, you can start an xterm session using the CTRL+ALT+X key combination.

The software can display the actual keybinding, set a specific X11 display, use an alternative rc file, give users more information on xbindkeys when executed, identify a pressed key, and much more.
