comment How to find *why* I can't bind some keyboard shortcut (or which app took it)?
(when I start unity, it registers Alt-F2, Alt-F4, Win-S etc etc. when I start synapse it registers Win-space, when I start yakuake it registers F12 etc etc - two latter according to my config - but what is the place they register those keys in and how to access this place?)

This article is not quite what I am asking about - I do not ask how keys are translated from physical keypresses to symbols (albeit this is also interesting and sometimes confusing). I ask simpler thing: which program actually keeps and applies global keyboard shortcuts, and whether there exist any kind of util or API which would let me introspect or trace those assignments.

Not fully solving my problem, but surely useful. Still, I am curious what is the place where those active bindings are actually kept and whether it can be introspected (gsettings are place they are read from by many apps, but not every app must use gsettings...)

For the sake of history: I found that best way to resolve oracle problems was to ... binary-edit $ORACLE_HOME/bin/oracle and change strings /dev/shm into /run/shm (fortunately they are of the same lenght). Oracle wrongly calculates size in case of symlink

comment How to find *why* I can't bind some keyboard shortcut (or which app took it)?
The key which I press and which causes something unrelated to the currently active window to happen. For example global shortcut Win-S opens expo view, global shortcut Alt-Tab switches windows, F12 (in my setup) opens tilda drop-down terminal etc etc. And, as I said, whenever I press F9, the screen dims, and I have no clue which app does that and why. And something sometimes grabs Win-space. And in the past I happened to see F12 taken away from tilda (luckily this problem went away). So I'd be happy to have some way to examine those keyboard allocations.
