I just installed 11.04 and am using the dvorak keyboard layout.

When I press Ctrl+Alt+T to bring up the terminal it doesn't bring it up, but when I press Ctrl+Alt+Y (the key that would be t in qwerty) it brings up a terminal.

I have no other keyboard layouts installed, but have switched caps lock and control.

In the Keyboard Shortcuts configuration it shows up as Ctrl+Alt+T to launch a terminal.

I would like the terminal shortcut to respect the keyboard layout.

  • What is the output of gconftool --get /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_terminal, and what letter is reported by xev | grep XLookupString when you press the T key? – ændrük May 18 '11 at 19:55
  • <Control><Alt>t XLookupString gives 1 bytes: (74) "t" Also, the keyboard shortcuts work in applications just fine, and <Control><#> works for switching desktops, etc. – Daniel X Moore May 18 '11 at 20:46
