I want to query default shortcuts for Gnome 3 from my running system. Is that possible?

First, I want to make shortcut comparison between systems. Second, I want to see which shortcuts are modified. Settings app can somehow detect this.

  • Yes, it's possible if you just fresh install and then dump the settings before altering anything. – don_crissti Dec 25 '18 at 15:40
  • @don_crissti if I only knew how to run official ISO in a container.. because containers could be stripped down versions. Then there is still the question how to dump all shortcuts? – anatoly techtonik Dec 26 '18 at 3:24
  • On a fresh install if you run gsettings list-recursively | grep -E 'keybindings|media-keys' you should get all DE shortcuts (but not application-specific ones like gnome-terminal shortcuts...). If you want to see only the non-default ones use dconf dump which will only dump your settings. – don_crissti Dec 26 '18 at 16:02

What version of gnome are you using ?

in gnome >=3.22 under the settings - device - keyboard On top there's option to reset all. Or try the super + esc, that's the restore keyboard shortcuts shortcut
