Bug Description

I'm running latest Karmic. Since the RC my gnome-do shortcut stopped working (<super>+x). I tried to use another shortcut (<ctrl>+z) and it seems to work fine. Can it be that gnome-do stopped recognizing the <super> button (the one with the windows logo on it) for some reason?

No. The default is <super>-space so you'd be hearing a lot more people complaining if that were the case.

Most likely some other program is bound to <super>-x. Try binding to <super>-space or <super>-something else to verify.

Changed in do:
status: New → Incomplete

Also, run from a terminal with gnome-do --debug and see if there is
any relevant information that gets logged when you try to bind
super+x. I believe the keybinder will report failures and successes.

<super>space seems to work!
When running gnome-do with --debug in console, as suggested, I get the
error:

(Do:8705): libdo-WARNING **: Binding '<Super>z' failed!

When trying to bind <super>z in preferences. No other process uses this key
binding.

Works for me!

[Debug 04:01:48.165] [AbstractKeyBindingService] "Summon Do" now mapped to "<Super>z"

My guess is *something* is bound to that key. You just don't know what! Chris might have more insight though since he just rewrote the keybinding code.

Changed in do:

Great! I'm pretty curious what that could be. Let me know if I can be of any
help, Chris.

Cheers
