I've enabled few Keyboard-shortcuts and they work weird.

  1. Shortcuts with Ctrl+Alt+

    I've enabled Ctrl+Alt+C to open a Google-chrome browser.
    Works only when I hold the Ctrl+Alt for a while.
    Works fine for default shortcuts like lock-screen (Ctrl+Alt+Delete) and gnome-terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T)

  2. Shortcuts with Super+
    I've enabled "Super+F" to open a Google-chrome browser with facebook URL
    Works only if I press "F" twice without releasing the "Super" key

Can someone help me fixing the issue (or) Confirm this behavior/bug?

OS - Ubuntu 12.10
Gnome - 3.6 (PPA)

  • I have similar strange behavior on 14.04, all modifier doesn't work well (control,shift,.. ) I have to press many time to get control+c works ... very frustrating Mar 29, 2014 at 4:51

Try disabling the "Show location of pointer" using the Gnome Tweak Tool.
