I am using Ubuntu 15.04 and they changed a hotkey.

Is there a way to turn off the system's CTRL+~? It shows a popup in the top right about connection settings, and I do not want this.

I use hotkeys in several applications, but I can't figure out where to find this one. I can't find it in the keyboard bindings.

  • Tried finding in Compiz Config Settings Manager
  • Tried gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings | sort | more but it doesn't show.

All that pops up is this at the top right:

connection established popup


That is actually dunst notifier. You could disable this shortcut by copying /etc/xdg/dunst/dunstrc to ~/.config/dunst/ and commenting out line history = ctrl+grave in shortcuts section


Try going to System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts

Find the shortcut you're trying to disable click on it to set a new shortcut Press Backspace to disable that shortcut

  • Hey I have looked in here for CTRL+` but I promise I can't find it in there. – JREAM Jul 28 '15 at 17:31
