I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and am trying to disable the Alt + F1 shortcut as I need it for usage in Pycharm. I have already gone through How can I disable the Alt+F1 / Alt+F2 shortcuts?. But it is not working for me. What am I doing wrong?
The steps I have followed to disable Alt + F1:
I modified in dconf using the following command:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu ""
Logged out and logged in. Still Alt + F1 sends the keyboard focus to the Unity panel.
- Restarted the machine. Still Alt + F1 sends the keyboard focus to the Unity panel.
Also verified that the configuration is still set using the following command
gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu<br><br>*Output*<br>@as 
Environment: Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS. And I don't remember switching to Unity 2D. But I think I'm using Unity 2D from this question.
