I'd really like to use the Windows (Meta) key for all of my window manager
shortcuts and the Key Bindings section of the Control Center seems to support
this, but I can't create new shortcuts with Meta. When I click on the button
to enter a new shortcut and hit the windows key nothing happens. Shortcuts
that already exist but use Meta don't work either, behaving as though Meta was
Using xev and pressing the windows key gives me this:
KeyPress event, serial 27, synthetic NO, window 0x3000001,
root 0x32, subw 0x0, time 860364067, (79,1), root:(83,819),
state 0x0, keycode 115 (keysym 0xffe7, Meta_L), same_screen YES,
XLookupString gives 0 characters: ""
So it looks like my modifiers are set up correctly. I'm not sure what else to
check. Do Meta shortcuts work for anyone else?
