I would to define Windows-like shortcuts using the Super ("Windows") key. I'm running Xubuntu 11.04 (Natty).
Using Settings->Settings Manager->Windows Manager->Keyboard I assigned Super+D to "Show desktop".
Then, using Settings->Settings Manager->Keyboard->Applications Shortcut I assigned Super+E to thunar. So far, everything works perfectly.
But, at least, I'd like the Super key when pressed alone to open the Applications Menu but, being Super a modifier key I wasn't able to assign it alone to a shortcut. For reference this problem is also described here.
Based on this forum post I used to xmodmap to make it behave like a normal key - ie. not a modifier key. And guess what, it works. Sorta.
Super alone works perfectly. Super+E still opens thunar but also opens the Applications Menu. Super+D no longers works at all.
Of course, I can just remove my
.Xmodmap file and assign a Super+A or similar to Applications Menu. But if there's a way to get just Super working it would be great.
Can someone shed some light on this issue?
