In 10.04, I've had a keyboard shortcut defined via it's keyboard settings applet.

Recently I have upgraded to 11.10 (I use gnome-classic). This shortcut still works, but I can't find it in System Setting's Keyboard applet. This means I don't know how to disable it.

Not that it bothers me too much (now, at least), but not being able to control my own computer doesn't seem very pleasant.

Where does Ubuntu store my keyboard shortcuts?

BTW, I do not use compiz, and I can't find my shortcut in gconf either.


Sory, I have just remembered, that shortcut was defined using xbindkey, so it has nothing to do with gnome/unity/whatever. Thanks for your attempts to help me and sorry for your wasted time. The question should probably be deleted.

gconf is being deprecated. Check dconf (you can do so with gsettings or dconf-editor) – Anonymous Nov 27 '11 at 1:34
You can find keyboard shortcut settings in gnome-control-center. Click on the keyboard icon, then the shortcuts tab. – Anonymous Nov 27 '11 at 1:35

I could not find it in dconf too. And gnome-control-center is what I've called System Settings in the question. – Mike Dec 3 '11 at 0:33

The second post above is correct. If you hit the SuperKey and in the search bar of the Unity Dash type in: gnome-control-center or just the word: keyboard, an Icon labeled Keyboard will appear. Click on that, and switch to the second tab, in order to add and view existing shortcuts.

As I have said, I can't find my shortcut in the System Setting's Keyboard applet. That's exactly the window you talk about. – Mike Dec 3 '11 at 0:17
