[Bug 950160] Re: Unity blocks other programs from receiving <super> key-press events.


I would love to see a fix for this bug too. However making one that
still gives Unity complete control over the Super key and doesn't
accidentally open the dash on fast Super+other_key taps, does not
presently appear to be possible. But I'd like for someone to prove me

Workaround: Run CCSM and under "Ubuntu Unity Plugin" change the key
binding for "Key to show the launcher" to something else (e.g. Super+U).
Then log out and in again. As long as no compiz plugin is bound to the
single Super key any more, compiz will no longer block other apps from
binding to Super+other_keys.
