Gnopernicus and Slackware 9.1.

Hi, again.

Just an idea. To start gnopernicus i am using alt+f2 keys. But at the
moment i don't have any sighted person around to look and see if this
combination works. So i'd better explain how i set up gnome. After
installing all gnome packages from the second Slackware CD i copied to
my home directory the /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.gnome file as ~/.xinitrc.
After running the 'startx' command i see a lot of gnome related stuff
in my home directory so i can conclude that at least i have gnome up
and running. But i don't know where can i look for all key
combinations available in gnome. 

Thank you all for your patience,
