  • Kernel: Linux 4.15.7-1-ARCH
  • GNOME: 3.26.2

I am unable to assign a program to Super+O. When I try setting it in Gnome settings, it doesn't even get registered as a shortcut (i.e. I open the "Pick shortcut" window, press Super+O and nothing happens).

I used dconf-editor to set the shortcut, but Gnome still refuses to acknowledge it.

Other programs pick up Super+O just fine. However, after setting the shortcut (which works in e.g. Guake settings), the shortcut itself doesn't work.

    Works fine here (same distro, same desktop).Most likely that key combo is already grabbed by another application. – don_crissti Mar 9 '18 at 22:06
  • @don_crissti if I send the shortcut with xdotool, it gets assigned just fine :/ Nothing shows up in logs, either. – Artyom Mar 10 '18 at 11:34
  • Odd... As I said, it works fine here, so not sure what to advise... – don_crissti Mar 10 '18 at 11:36
  • Probably some other app that you have installed is somehow hijacking it. – Mike Nakis Apr 17 at 13:23
