What are Unity's keyboard and mouse shortcuts?

I want my cake and to eat it too. And in Linux I can usually do that. (And it's free cake!) I'm a little shocked that it hasn't been easier (or as far as I know, even possible) to change the keyboard shortcuts for Unity. Someone suggested in another post that the Unity launcher can be changed from Super to Ctrl + Super, then I can map the other keybindings that I want. But I like a lot of the features that Unity has with only pressing the Super key (I find it a lot easier to press Super+e than Ctrl+Super+e). However, I want to be able to change what some of the bindings in Unity are, primarily change Super+t from opening trash to opening a terminal (currently Ctrl+Alt+t).

With that background, here is my question: is Unity working on allowing users to customize the keybindings to their preference?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Many of keybindings you can change in Compiz Config Settings Manager (ccsm command).
