I have set from to minimize all windows settings to super + d button.

Some time later this Super + D button does not works.

When I check the setting i see that it is disabled.

In 14.04, Super+D does not seem to work (at least to reveal the Desktop).

I would rely on the same shortcut as the one defined in the Unity Compiz plugin: Ctrl+Super+D

To enable Super+D without the need of defining a shortcut, just activate the Desktop Launcher icon in System Settings → Appearance → Behavior:

    @akikara: In order to use Super+D you need to activate the Desktop launcher icon, nothing more. May 15, 2014 at 14:29
