I have many scripts which I call with khotkey. For example I have a hotkey which executes:

bk_starts_or_brings.bash 'Konsole' konsole

On updating to Quantal -- it stops to work: if I call that key -- it searches

bk_starts_or_brings.bash 'Konsole' konsole

in google in default web-browser.

I tried:

sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
sudo apt-get install build-essential cdbs dh-make dkms execstack dh-modaliases fakeroot libqtgui4

When I start the command from konsole -- it works as expected, but when I call it with khotkey -- it doesn't. I guess someone shadows my keybiding. Or some daemon is not run on startup.

I also had to install kdm on updating to Raring. – Adobe Apr 26 '13 at 9:17
