Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

After setting it up, it used to work flawlessly before Unity. In 12.04, there is the little annoyance of showing (sometimes) the shortcut help and the numbers in the launcher. In 12.10 ... it stopped working completely - starts the first, second etc application in the launcher.

Is there a way to use this combinations to switch between workspaces without changing the WinKey Unity function?

These are very convenient shortcuts (single hand, without much stretching) and there is no reason why Unity should eat all WinKey combinations in such a general and non-discriminating way.;)

Thanks in advance!
