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

Its a simple one: I want to change the keyboard shortcut of the 'system activity' from 'Conrtol + Escape' to something else, possibly eliminating the keyboard shortcut altogether (I have other means of handling gone-wild processes... :-) . I've found nothing relevant in System settings -> shortcuts and gestures.

I've seen several similar posts on the subject but none was describing my options exactly and therefore none was suitable/working for me.

Hm..., perhaps it's not that simple after all. –  mikewhatever Aug 29 '13 at 13:26
should definitely be simple, or simply a bug :-) –  Boaz Rymland Aug 29 '13 at 13:33
