I'm using the Gnome Shell extension Workspace Matrix in Ubuntu 18 and would like to change the hot key for it (it's currently Super+W) but haven't been able to find where that's set.

Using dconf Editor, I'm not seeing any option for it under /org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings or under /org/gnome/shell/extensions/wsmatrix.

How is this done?

  • Is this a standard Ubuntu desktop with Gnome Shell, or is this about a specific application? In the latter case, provide more information on the application. – vanadium Jan 29 '20 at 17:18

  • @vanadium, this is standard Ubuntu with Gnome Shell. I've added a link to Workspace Matrix. – Noel Yap Jan 29 '20 at 18:13
  • Look for the option to change the hotkey under the gsettings of the extension itself. If not there, and not configurable in the extension's options, it will probably be hardcoded in the extension. – vanadium Jan 29 '20 at 18:33

From https://github.com/mzur/gnome-shell-wsmatrix/issues/47:

$ sudo cp ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions/wsmatrix@martin.zurowietz.de/schemas/org.gnome.shell.extensions.wsmatrix.gschema.xml  /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
$ sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/

Then use gsettings or dconf to set org.gnome.shell.extensions.wsmatrix-keybindings workspace-overview-toggle.
