Bug Description

In the keyboard shortcut preferences I had set CTRL+Fn for the actions "Navigation/Switch to workspace n " where n is the number of the workspace

Unmarking as duplicate. This sounds separate than the Launch Terminal keyboard shortcut problem.

I can confirm this, now, too. I didn't have any custom shortcuts, but I downgraded gnome-settings-daemon to 3.4.2-0ubuntu8, and made some. gnome-control-center-* needed to be downgraded to the same version, to run properly. Shortcuts under 0ubuntu8 did not survive into 0ubuntu9. I could make new ones under 0ubuntu9.

I was thinking this might be the same as bug 1040954, since the Terminal keybinding seemed to be one of the custom keybindings from Gnome's point of view, just installed by default by Ubuntu. And because it came and went with the same upgrades and downgrades. I still think it might be, but I certainly don't grasp the whole situation. I don't know the particulars of what's happening in the code, at all.

Either way, from my testing, it looks like the relevant code is in gnome-settings-daemon (and possibly gnome-control-center). I can see this bug, or restore the old behavior, by changing the versions of those packages, without touching compiz.

I'll see what you guys think, before changing the bug any more. Thanks!

Confirmed. Though this is only really a problem if it also happens when upgrading from 12.04 to 12.10, which I think it might.

I just duped bug 1046910 to this. Matthew, the reporter, said:

"After upgrading 12.10 beta, I found that my custom maximize (ctrl-super-up) and minimize (ctrl-super-down) shortcuts weren't working. The default shortcuts (super-up, super-down) did work, and were reported in the shortcuts screen (hold super).

Re-applying the shortcuts in the keyboard shortcuts panel didn't fix them, but disabling them and re-setting them did."

I guess that may be the sort of upgrade case that you are talking about, Daniel. Thanks.

Hey, I've just seen that Didier has a report going on this issue, with work apparently in progress: bug 1046190. Any objections to duping this one, there?
