Several non-working Compiz keyboard shortcuts

Noticed several Compiz keyboard shortcuts mentioned in Welcome don't seem to be working.
Tried MATE Tweak 'Reset Compiz', plus system restart.

OS version:
16.04 beta 2 (clean installation +updates)

Hardware specification:
Graphics: Card: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.1 drivers: intel (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
Resolution: [email protected]
GLX Renderer: Mesa DRI Intel Sandybridge Mobile
GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 11.1.2 Direct Rendering: Yes

Below is a list of what works and what doesn't on this laptop.

  • Ctrl + Alt + D (show desktop). Working
  • Super + A (zoom out show workspace switcher) Not working
  • Super + W (scale effect shows all windows from current workspace) Not working
  • Super + Shift + W (scale effect shows all windows from all workspaces) Working
  • Super + N (invert colours of focused window) Not working
  • Super + M (invert colours of whole screen) Not working
  • Super + Mouse Scroll (zooms in on screen) Working
  • Super + Middle Mouse Button (select region to zoom into, using rectangle) Not working
  • Alt + Left Mouse Button (move focused window) working
  • Alt + Middle Mouse Button (resize focused window) working
  • Alt + Right Mouse Button (show window menu) working

If others find the same, I'll generate a bug report.

Thank you.

Cannot confirm. A fresh installation of Ubuntu MATE 16.04 Beta 2 in VirtualBox shows these shortcuts to be working just fine.

I also can’t confirm. All keyboard shortcuts work as documented.

Thank you both for your feedback.

Since neither of you have any keyboard shortcuts issues, to try and discover the source of the problem I’ve just systematically gone through my settings using VirtualBox with a live beta 2 session.

Turns out, once advanced menu is enabled, then keyboard shortcuts mentioned in first post do not function. Disable advanced menu, and shortcuts begin working again.

Would you like me to generate a bug report?

Ah, because MATE Menu totally grabs all the hooks on the super key :angry:

Apologies for late reply.

That’s one of the reasons I remap ‘Enhanced Zoom Desktop’ from <Super> to <Alt>.

Otherwise, every time you press Super to change zoom level, the desktop pans to MATE Menu (as it opens) then back. :slight_smile:
