Enabling pointer position (ctrl) in mouse settings disables synapse shortcut (ctrl +space)

Bug #1134443 reported by Anton Kanishchev on 2013-02-27
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
synapse (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce

Either in gnome classic or unity:

1-Enable "show mouse when ctrl key is pressed" (1.png)
2-now try to invoke synapse with its default shortcut (ctrl+space)


When the option to show the cursor is enabled , synapse would not display its search prompt.

This is a bug as pressing the ctrl key should show the position of the mouse pointer while ctrl+space should display synapse.

All other shortcuts ( including custom created shortcuts and common system shortcuts, ctrl+v etc) defined in keyboard settings are unaffected by this, they are still accessible via ctrl+"key" command.

temporary workaround: create a new accelerator (shift+ space for example) for synapse.

synapse version ==> apt-cache policy synapse
