Ubuntu seems to have changed the half-window shortcuts from Ctrl+Alt+NumPad-Numbers to half using the NumPad and Ctrl+Super+Left/Right (which I find absolutely ridiculous). How do I change it back? I can't find it under "Keyboard".

It's from Compiz.

sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

Launch it from the dash or with ccsm and then go to Grid

Package doesn't exist apparently (maybe I'm missing the PPA?), I found the settings manager in software center though. Thanks. – mpen Nov 6 '12 at 18:37
@Mark, my bad, ccsm isn't the package name but the name of the executable. I've made an edit. Glad you found it. – user55822 Nov 6 '12 at 23:09
