I'm trying to setup Left-Win as the compose key in Kubuntu 18.04.4. Problem: whenever I hit the key, the Application Launcher popups.
I read in this AU-answer that setting the shortcut Alt+F1 for the launcher, automatically ALSO maps the Win-keys. Apparently, Win-key and Alt+F1 are mapped to each other somehow?
What I have done
System Settings -> Hardware -> Input Devices -> Keyboard -> Advanced -> Position of Compose key -> select Left Win
Also, the contents of
# KEYBOARD CONFIGURATION FILE # Consult the keyboard(5) manual page. XKBMODEL="pc104" XKBLAYOUT="us" XKBVARIANT="euro" XKBOPTIONS="lv3:ralt_switch,compose:lwin" BACKSPACE="guess"
Pressing Left-Win+e ' or Left-Win+' e results in
é. However, this only works sometimes, as if there is some toggling going on.
What I want (what I am used to) is that I can press Left-Win ' e to get
é. But this results in the popup of the Application Launcher :(
Perhaps the question is: how can I unmap Left-Win to Alt+F1?
