I want to change the shortcut to navigate between applications on my Gnome shell 3.4.1 from Alt+TAB to Super+TAB ( Since I RDP to a windows box sometimes and it "eats" away the ALT+TAB)

I followed the instructions on the Gnome website and changed the navigation shortcut from Alt+Tab to Super+Tab .. but it still is not working... even after restarting the gnome-shell

Any ideas ?

  • I use the plain vanilla Ubuntu, and I've re-defined the same keyboard short-cut using CCSM and that works... How did you re-define the short-cut?

  • Try CompizConfig Settings Manager (unsure myself if that exsists for Gnome) in the application switcher plug-in and change the [alt][tab] to [Super][Tab] and that will remove [alt][tab] as well as adding [Super][Tab]... Report back whether that worked or not.

  • I do not think Compiz can help ... I think its more of a dconf-editor setting that i need to change.

  • Please edit your question to reflect that you don't want any compiz solutions in the first place! :-(

open dconf-editor and changing the setting for

org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings switch-applications to the value ['<Super>Tab', '<Alt>Tab'] worked for me
