After fresh install of Kubuntu 18.04 I'm experiencing a really annoying issue.

After pressing Alt+F2 (to quickly execute something) I'm, thrown into the terminal - or console - or tty2 - simply completely out of GUI.

Then I need to press Alt+F1 to get back to GUI and then the quick launch is displayed.

Similar goes for Meta+left and Meta+right.

Is there any hack how to disable this behaviour?

    That's not normal. It shouldn't happen. – DK Bose May 10 '18 at 14:46
  • @dsstorefile1, I have console-setup-linux/bionic,now 1.178ubuntu2 all [installed] and didn't see anything like what OP describes. – DK Bose May 10 '18 at 14:48

    @dsstorefile1 oh my god, restart actually helped! Who could think of that ;) – Ikar Pohorský May 10 '18 at 14:50
  • I had this installed as part of the initial installtion which I did on 2018-04-26. I haven't had any updates to this particular package since then. – DK Bose May 10 '18 at 14:51

Answered here https://askubuntu.com/a/929115/248158 and here https://askubuntu.com/a/1073515/39176. For completeness

sudo kbd_mode -s

(persistent across reboots).
