As I wanted to try Ratpoison and other mouseless window manager, I used this .xinitrc

There's a keyboard remapping in there and I'm afraid (but not sure it's this...) it messed up my keyboard settings.

Since, I've deleted this file, however, my Alt+Tab shortcut hasnt been working anymore. In the keyboard shortcuts section, the "Switch Application" shortcut IS assigned to Alt+Tab.

More over, if I try to reassign this shortcut, and then press Alt+Tab, the Alt+Tab shortcut appears and is saved as expected.

However, the shortcut doesn't produce the wanted behavior.

Any idea why this happen and how to fix it?

Could somebody please reopen this question? I'm having the same problem. I didn't use the linked .xinitrc, but I am using xmodmap to remap my keyboard. Everything works except for alt-tab. –  Bryan Larsen Jan 30 '13 at 14:18

I have the same problem, but the reboots didn't fix it for me. –  Bryan Larsen Jan 30 '13 at 14:16
