Bug Description

Binary package hint: metacity

I bound F4 to this shortcut, but it has no effect. The related shortcuts "Raise window above other windows" and "Lower window below other windows" work fine.

This is on an upgraded Ubuntu Hardy system.

Never mind, metacity doesn't run by default on Ubuntu Hardy systems.

I see this problem and I am not running metacity. Just Gnome desltop.

This bug is actually in compiz - if you switch to the 2-D mode you get metacity, and in that mode it is possible to get raise/lower to work. In 3-D mode (which is really necessary to get decent performance these days) it is not possible to bind the raise/lower operation.

as part of the bug clean up ahead of 16.04 LTS I'm marking this as invalid because it affects an Ubuntu release which is now unsupported. If you can still recreate this bug in a supported release please do open a new bug and we can triage it for consideration in the 16.04 LTS development cycle.
