The usb keyboard that I have connected to my Dell E6430 running ubunthu 12.04 with gnome 3 does not open the activites overlay when i press the "windows key" on the usb keyboard.

It works just fine when I use the laptop keyboard.

I used

~$ sudo /lib/udev/keymap -i

To find what the key code was and in both cases (laptop and external keyboard) it is leftmeta.

But when I go and configure keyboard shortcuts the leftmeta on the laptop keyboard shows up as Mod2+Super L and from the external usb keyboard it is Favorites.

Solved by switching to another keyboard. –  Erik Apr 29 '13 at 14:11
