I'd like to change my Alternate Desktop shortcut in Xubuntu. How do I do that? I don't see the option under Keyboard's Application Shortcuts?

Xubuntu 13.04 has two different sets of keyboard shortcuts,

  • Application Shortcuts
  • Window Manager → Keyboard (shortcuts)

You're simply in the wrong screen. Close out of Application Shortcuts, that's for starting an application with a keyboard shortcut. What you want is to go under Settings → Window Manager → Keyboard. Then you should be able to set new keyboard shortcuts.
