Ubuntu 11.10. The Super + D stopped minimizing all windows. The combination does nothing. It worked a couple of days ago as I was using it a lot.

Any ideas?

Thanks, Bob.

Are you using Unity2D? – Bruno Pereira Apr 2 '12 at 17:00

Use Ctrl+Alt+D

if didn't work --> open system settings --> keyboard --> Shortcuts tap --> Navigation --> Hide all normal windows --> set it to super+D keyboard shortcuts

That's the one that works for me, not super-D, which does nothing. – Marty Fried Apr 2 '12 at 18:33
I think it is the default for Ubuntu 11.10 i don't know how super+D work with Bob until now, but you can change it if you want as i mention above – Black Block Apr 2 '12 at 19:20
I thought about that too (the fact that it reputedly worked before), but as a person that helps users with problems fairly often, I know how users often misremember things like that. :-) – Marty Fried Apr 2 '12 at 19:23
Thanks, that did the trick. Super + D will work in the upcoming 12.04..... Sorry about that.<g> – Bob Brazie Apr 2 '12 at 20:18
