Yeah, might as well do that... I doubt any application will use the super key.. though we never know.

comment How do I disable middle mouse button click paste?
I don't understand gpm.. in the package description they state: "This package tries to be a useful mouse server for applications running on the Linux console." What does this have to do with applications running in windowed mode?

comment How to remove envelope from Indicator applet without uninstalling the indicator-messages package?
That is one workaround, thanks, however I believe the indicator applet might come in handy in the future, since it is becoming a rather central point in Ubuntu and everything. I would rather not remove it all ;) Starting to think there is no solution without diving in the code/opening a suggestion on launchpad.

I have had trouble with such a solution, sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't work. Also, the sleep will definitely delay your desktop booting.

@Decio, No. That removes the whole indicator applet, not just the messages indicator. I still need other indicators like the sound indicator.

comment Alternative desktop managers
You should focus on fixing (or asking for fixes on) what isn't behaving as you would like, rather than ask people to fix 'everything' which is rather unlikely to happen.

From a separate .deb package.
