Bug Description

Trying to figure out why Alt+click wasn't working in Visual Studio Code, I discovered that mouse-button-modifier was set to Alt.

This was supposedly changed to Super upstream per https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=607797. Could we please use Super as the Ubuntu default too?

This bug was fixed in the package ubuntu-gnome-default-settings - 18.10.1

---------------
ubuntu-gnome-default-settings (18.10.1) cosmic; urgency=medium

  * Drop some gsettings overrides that are no longer needed
  * Reorder some keybinding overrides so upstream defaults are
    shown in gnome-control-center (LP: #1770909)
  * Switch mouse modifier button to <super> in line with upstream GNOME
    and also Ubuntu, as <alt> conflicts with various apps (LP: #1704580)
