I don't usually ask questions but I can't find a working solution anywhere.

I went to Settings > keyboard > shortcuts > Navigation > Hide all normal windows and changed the shortcut to Super+M to match windows minimize all shortcut. However Super+M opens music search (that I certainly don't need).

How can I remove the this music search binding?

gsettings/dconf location would certainly help, but couldn't find it myself.

Found this in another thread. What I needed to do is to rewire Unity launch button as a whole.

in the Compiz Config open the Unity Plugin page, change the "Key to show the launcher" to anything other than just Super. Mine is Alt+Super. original thread

Afterwards all started to work fine.


Open terminal by pressing CTRL+ALT+T

Enter the command below.

sudo apt-get remove unity-lens-music

Enter the root password when prompted.

Now goto Settings > keyboard > shortcuts > Navigation > Hide all normal windows and assign the Super+M keys

  • Then try this one. sudo apt-get purge unity-lens-music Jun 26, 2016 at 7:20
  • its not installed so it was not removed. ive also done autoremove (if that was the next step). I have a feeling that its not called "unity-lens-music"
