After upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04, I have problems with the compiz key bindings.
I use gnome flashback and compiz, and want to use some window managing compiz plugins such as put and grid.

Since I upgraded, all compiz key bindings using super key are not working anmyore.
For instance, when I open nautilus and hit super + numpad key, a search popup form appears with the typed number instead of the a compiz action bound to that key combination.
How can I restore the old behavior that compiz hooks into these key combinations involving the super key?

Thanks in advance!
