I know it may be useful feature for someone, but i don't use it at all.

Is there any way to protect HUD key from beeing set up after every/some update of Ubuntu?

  1. You can create a dconf override file:

    sudo nano /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/30_disable_hud_shortcut.gschema.override
  2. Append override keys & values to it, example:


The new users and the users uses default will have it disabled.


  • Will try it and hopefully i'll accept your answer later (if it won't enable) :)

  • Unfortunately it had enabled itself again... so cannot accept this answer. The file was left intact (the override one)
