When I press F10, the indicator datetime opens up. How can I disable that? Another app use that as a keyboard short cut and I can't use it!

Using Ubuntu 11.04 Unity

I don't see F10 listed in my keyboard shortcuts too

  • F10 is supposed to open the applications menubar, though you can navigate to the indicators using the arrow keys. Commented Oct 16, 2011 at 14:32

If you have gconf-editor, press Alt+F2 then type gconf... and Enter
While in gconf-editor, press Ctrl+F and type F10 then tick on both radio-buttons. This should give you nice list at the bottom screen, where F10 "might" be assigned and an option to change it.

I also think that this shortcut is spammed. In my case I have it at:

  • /desktop/gnome/interface/menubar_accel
  • /apps/compizconfig-1/profiles/Default/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/panel_first_menu
  • /apps/compiz-1/plugins/unityshell/screen0/options/panel_first_menu

And of course can't close MC right now, using only keyboard ;)
