For some reason my custom shortcut for the System Monitor that I created according to this instruction does not work. Is there a default shortcut for System Monitor?

When I press it, it just does nothing. Any ideas?

My shortcut is ctrl+shift+esc.

Here is a screenshot:



For some reason there is a problem using Esc key within Custom shortcuts. Here is the same (unanswered) question: Ubuntu 16.04 escape key doesn't work in custom keyboard shortcut. I found also this question: Keyboard shortcut Shift + Ctrl + Escape does not work, where in the comments @Cas says: I have opened a bug report: #1350527.

Мy suggestion is to use another key combination, for example Ctrl+Alt+Z, and command to be executed: gnome-system-monitor.

  • Thanks! Very strange problem with esc indeed. Works now with a different shortcut. – Willi Fischer Mar 24 '18 at 10:39

    @WilliFischer, it is already reported as bug: #1350527. – pa4080 Mar 24 '18 at 10:41

    I see. Unresolved for four years, though :D Will check it once in a while. Until then, I just use another shortcut. Thanks again for your very thorough answer – Willi Fischer Mar 24 '18 at 10:43
