Bug Description

I am trying to map <Control>Space to popup the application launcher. However, it keeps recording <Primary>Space. I have no idea what this is, and can't find anything on the internet about it. It will record <Super>Space, but I can't get any <Control> shortcuts to record. In fact, I changed one of the existing <Control> shortcuts by pressing the same key combination (<Control>F2), and it re-recorded it as <Primary>F2. I cannot get it back now.

I am using:

 cairo-dock-plug-ins 3.0.1-1ubuntu1~precise A set of plug-ins for Cairo-Dock

Hello and thank you for this bug report!

That should be fixed in BZR repo (I guess they have changed something in X server...) ;)

Note that as workaround you can edit the shorcuts manually and replace <Primary> by <Control>
