This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Per the FAQ, questions about unreleased versions of Ubuntu (12.04) are off-topic. Do you experience this problem with 11.10? If not, please see – zpletan Mar 27 '12 at 21:35

Right now this feature to disable isn't in Ubuntu yet.

You can set it by command line for now till the feature is available

gconftool --set "/apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/shortcut_overlay" --type bool false

In case you get gconftool not found, then you can first install the package gconf2 either from Software center or command line

sudo apt-get install gconf2

Installing gconftool in USC

In my case it shows installed as I have already installed it

Perfect answer, thank you! Sorry about the dupe and asking about precise beta.. didn't want to raise it as a bug and waste developer's time! – James Mar 28 '12 at 16:45
Actually I am working on a tool called Ubuntu Tweak which will be out soon. It is very easy to use – Manish Sinha Mar 28 '12 at 16:50
