I am using Sublime Text 3 which uses CtrlAlt$key hotkeys for a few important functionalities, but CtrlAltLeft (for example) switches workspaces. Is there a way I can disable the OS functions of these hotkeys while I'm using Sublime Text 3?

I'm running Linux Mint 16 Petra with Cinnamon desktop, and the latest version of Sublime Text 3

  • this highly depends on your desktop environment. When using KDE try the command systemsettings. There you will find settings for the keyboard including hotkeys. – Thorsten Staerk Dec 20 '13 at 6:28
  • While it's not exactly what I was looking for, I was able to change the hotkeys through the System Settings > Keyboard menu. – Jehy Dec 20 '13 at 7:26
  • Not sure if Cinnamon has anything similar, but KDE has this: unix.stackexchange.com/a/79513/28489 . Also this, but does not seem to apply to Ctrl+Alt+Arrow though: sublimetext.userecho.com/topic/89378-support-unbinding-of-keys (As in it is not captured by Sublime, at least in my tests.) – Runium Dec 20 '13 at 9:36

You can simply un-map the keys.

Run dconf-editor. Head to org.cimmamon.muffin.keybindings. And empty or change the conflicting key bindings.

I recommend you edit the keybindings in Sublime Text though.
