  • Install the compizconfig-settings-manager Install compizconfig-settings-manager package
  • The setting can be found in Desktop, Ubuntu Unity Plugin, Switcher
  • Change Key to flip through windows in the switcher from disabled to something else.

And the reason you can not find it: disabled means it uses alt+` so it is impossible to find if you did not already know where it is used for ;)

This isn't working for me with Ubuntu 12.04. I gave it another key. I've ticked the "Enable Ubuntu Unity Plugin". I've rebooted. But it doesn't respond to the new key and Alt+~ still functions. –  Tergiver Dec 27 '13 at 19:52
