[Bug 622129] [NEW] Cannot set <Super> to open the Main Menu in Gnome, like I can do in windows


Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: compiz

I want to have my old practice of using the <super> (windows key) to
open the main menu in Gnome panel. I have also configured my Main menu
to appear Botton left as in windows os (see the pic included). This is
my natural practice and I have pain to leave it.

Although option appears to set any shortcut to open main menu, I cannot
have it working rather I have any other option working like <super> + q
, it works perfectly fine but only <super> does not work.

This option exist in Main Menu>System>Prefrences>CompizConfig Settings
manager > Gnome Compatability>General   (see pic uploaded)

I cannot also set the <super> with Grab key, only I have to manually
edit the command and write <super> to it, This works for any other
command like run but doess not work with 'Show Main menu'
