How can i if possible disable the Run command dialog?. It keeps appearing even if i don't press the Key combination. ( I have disabled the Key combination ALT+f2)

You can disable the Run Command dialog by creating an custom definition in the file kdeglobal.

You can find the kdeglobals file under your home dir.

#cd  /your-home-dir/.kde/share/config

#vim kdeglobals

Add the entry like

[KDE Action Restrictions][$i]

Here is the help link for kde system admin
