Bug Description

In 18.10, we made use of the fact that lxqt-globalkeys can define the Super key by itself to open the menu. This had no effect on any Super key combinations defined in lxqt-globalkeys. Unfortunately, this had the negative consequence of essentially disabling all of the key combinations that used the Super key as defined by Openbox.

Luckily the workaround is simple: remove the definition for the Super key. You can do this in the GUI or deal with this section of the config file at /etc/xdg/lxqt/globalkeyshortcuts.conf:

[Super_L.9]
Comment=Show/hide main menu
Enabled=true
path=/panel/mainmenu/show_hide

In fixing this there's a larger discussion of auditing all the shortcuts:

Ah, here is probably the cause of it all, deprecated packages from 18.04 are not deinstalled... https://phab.lubuntu.me/w/bugs/
