I have 2 bugs in my Ubuntu 12.04 fresh installation using a Macbook Pro keyboard. Note: I swapped the Ctrl and Cmd keys (Ctrl and Super on regular keyboards), but that should not affect the shortcuts I program.)
I changed the
Switch application shortcut from Alt-Tab to Ctrl-Tab. It saves this correctly but the change does not seem to take effect. I rebooted and it still doesn't. Alt-Tab stays working and Ctrl-Tab does nothing. I know Ctrl-Tab is used by the Chromium browser, but outside the browser the shortcut isn't working either.
Can anyone confirm this? I changed another shortcut in the
Navigation section but this change isn't working either.
Windows section, I want to change the shortcut for
Close window from Alt-F4 to Ctrl-W (as it is in Mac and because the Function keys can only be used together with the Fn key). For some reason in some application through Ubuntu's defaults the Ctrl-W shortcut is programmed for closing windows already (although only a few) but it seems that in the System Settings it is as well. So when I click the
Close window item and want to enter Ctrl-W as a new shortcut it closes the window. I cannot set the Ctrl-W hotkey anywhere since it closes the Shortcuts window as I type it.
Can anyone using a regular keyboard confirm any of these 2 bugs? Does anyone know a solution for them? Anyone knows if these bugs are already filed? If not I will look for them and file them myself, but I just wanted some feedback first.
