How do I modify or disable the HUD's use of the Alt key?

The new HUD in 12.04 uses the Alt key, which conflicts with the way utilities like IBUS switch input methods. Is there a workaround?

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.

This might be a bug. If you don't get a response in a few days, you may want to consider filing a bug against unity – Thomas Ward Jun 6 '12 at 18:22

You can go to System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts, and change the key to show the HUD.

*note: the ALT key is named "ALT L" and is bound to (System Settings -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts) -> Launchers -> Key to show the HUD
