I just updated from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04. However, now the Super + m function does not change my desktop and open windows to a negative view as it previously did.

I changed the keyboard shortcut for the Compiz neg to Ctrl + Alt + m, but it still doesn't do anything. Does anyone have any idea how to make this function work again with 11.04?

Can you make sure it does not conflict with others shortcuts? – desgua May 5 '11 at 17:49
Have you tried setting it to any other keyboard shortcuts? – Christopher Kyle Horton Jun 1 '11 at 6:55
  1. Make sure you enabled extra repositories
  2. Install CCSM sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager
  3. Open System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager
  4. Uncheck Accessibility > Negative
  5. Now open System > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts and you should be able to create any binding that involves <Mod4> (Windows key) and m
