I'm trying to use gnome-session-fallback on an Ubuntu PC running an xrdp+vnc server (So that I can remotely connect to Ubuntu using a Windows RDP client). The problem I have is that the “d” key seems to be bound to the action “hide all normal windows”, even when I am using a program that captures text. This is a bit annoying because everytime I would press “d” I need to copy and paste a “d” character instead.
I went into “System Settings” > “Keyboard” > “Shortcuts” and found that the action was bound to “Alt+Super+d”. I tried binding the action to another key sequence, but (as expected) it didn't fix my problem.
At first I assumed this was because the setting I changed is for Unity and not for Gnome fallback, but if I just log in normally using Gnome fallback “d” does not minimise all windows – it just works normally.
I also tried connecting directly to the vncserver, from my localhost and got the same behaviour.
I get the same behaviour regardless of whether I use a Windows, or Ubuntu based client. The instructions I used for setting up my Ubuntu xrdp+vnc server are here:
Does anyone know why this is happening?
Is there any further information that I can provide?
