I've already spent much more time in finding a combination that works in every app (universal) than in creating the actual service. The shortcut triggers a service for increasing or decreasing the brightness of my external monitor.
I tried a ridiculous Control + Alt + Command + F1 / F2, but it doesn't work in apps like Finder, Preview etc. It only gives an error beep. (But is it already assigned? Or its portion is assigned and gets triggered?) I haven't found anything else since.
How do I find a free keyboard shortcut combo? Otherwise there's no point in creating them.
