I'm using xfce 4.6.0 which comes with ubuntu 9.04. When I upgraded from the previous version, all my keyboard shortcuts were lost. No problem, I just reset them all. They all seem to work except alt-f3 (which I map to "Workspace 3"). When I map it, it works fine. However, after rebooting my computer it doesn't work anymore. It's still listed in the Window Manager Keyboard Settings, it just doesn't work. If I reset it there, it starts working again. But then next time I reboot it goes away. Any thoughts on how I can fix this?
Also, as a semi-related question (and this probably isn't the place to ask but just in case someone knows...) - will 4.6.1 ever make it into ubuntu 9.04 or do I have to wait until the next ubuntu version?
Thanks in advance,
I can't easily check because I've already modified mine, but you might check Settings > Window Manager > Keyboard and see if ALT+F3 is already defined there.
Xfce 4.6.1 is already in Ubuntu repositories for "Karmic". I don't really follow Ubuntu, but since it's just a rebranding of Debian, I imagine all you have to do is modify your /etc/apt/sources.lst (or with 3rd party repo), or download all the .deb's and install them manually, etc.. Ask #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net.
Hi Thanks for your reply. It is defined there as "Workspace #3" but it stops working after a reboot. It still shows up there, correctly defined, but it doesn't work unless I set it again.
Also, I just noticed that I can't bind an application shortcut for alt-c, is that now reserved? In the last version of xfce I was using I bound it to start a calculator application. Now it seems to close the window.
