[Solved] Disturbing Xfce keyboard shortcut: pressing ctrl+f calls terminal

Hello,

Please help me to remove the keyboard shortcut in Xfce, which calls terminal when I press ctrl+f (yes, I cannot search anything anywhere anymore due to this). I do not really know why/how I created it, but it just works this way now. I do not see this shortcut listed neither in Settings -> Keyboard - Shortcuts, nor in Settings -> Windows Manager -> Keyboard. Also the following command does not list the wrong shortcut:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-keyboard-shortcuts -l -v

Re: [Solved] Disturbing Xfce keyboard shortcut: pressing ctrl+f calls terminal

Hello and welcome.

A couple of things to check:

1. Make sure that xfsettingsd is running and that you don't have another settings daemon (e.g. gnome-settings-daemon or krunner) running.
2. Check that you haven't created any bindings with xbindkeys (look at ~/.xbindkeysrc).

Re: [Solved] Disturbing Xfce keyboard shortcut: pressing ctrl+f calls terminal

Thank you very much, ToZ, it worked!

~/.xbindkeysrc indeed contained the shortcut. I commented it and run
killall -HUP xbindkeys
in order to reload the contents of the file.

No problem anymore.
