When I set custom shortcuts from Keyboard / Shortcuts / Custom Shortcuts, all of the ones set to use Super key (e.g. Super + 1, set to open a text file using the default text editor) have a weird threshold between key presses. If Super is released too quickly, the shortcut is not registered. In practice, it requires, what I would call, an abnormally long press.
If I set up exactly same keys via Commands plugin in Compiz, the unresponsiveness is gone. What causes this behaviour? Can the the "threshold" be changed from somewhere? Does this happen on purpose - to give priority to the default Super key shortcuts in Unity?
- Ubuntu 12.10
- Seems to affect only Super key (at least I have not noticed the same on other keys)
- Super key is not assigned to show the launcher (I've changed it to Super + A, but it seems to make no difference whether Super is used)
- The command or key combination does not matter, except possibly if additionally Ctrl, Shift or Alt are used (e.g. Ctrl+Super+1), but I am not 100% sure about this, because it is hard to test this consistently as the difference is only in milliseconds
I do not want use Compiz / Commands, because the plugin only allows 20 commands (why is there such restriction in the first place?!) and setting up them in there is much more troublesome.
