How can I bind alt-space to open Gnome-Do in Ubuntu Precise 12.04? I disabled the "activate window menu" Unity alt-space shortcut from the keyboard settings, but Gnome-Do still doesn't receive the alt-space shortcut.

In the next version of Do (0.9.1) this should work a little bit better - I've got some code that checks that Do can register the keybinding before it accepts it. So there will still be key combinations you can't use, but at least you won't be able to set key combinations that won't work. –  RAOF Jul 22 '12 at 11:11

Solved this. I had to disable the Alt-` shortcut

Run compizconfig-settings-manager

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
ccsm

Go to Ubuntu Unity Plugin => Switcher and change Key to flip through windows in the switcher to something other than "Default". (Default means that Alt-` is used)

Install via the software center

Or by terminal:
