Can someone explain how GNOME 3 executes commands that are bound to keyboard shortcuts? I'm asking because all commands that I've bound execute only after double pressing. I've checked it with:

  1. modkey + F1 -> chromium
  2. modkey + F2 -> ~/ownBashScript

Here are my log's lines that are appended while I'm double-pressing modkey + F1:

Windows manager warning: Log level 16: fetch_connections_done: error fetching connections: (25) Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1.
Windows manager warning: Log level 16: nm_client_get_devices: error getting devices: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 1

Full log can be found here.
