    Post desktop key for Ubuntu 12.10

    Hello all,

    The desktop key ctrl-alt-d is not working in 12.10.

    Is there any way to enable this?

    BR,
    Terry.

    In 12.04 Ctrl+Super+D says: Hide All Normal Windows (System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Navigation).
    Is that the option what are you looking for?

    On my desktop, Ctrl-Super-D hides all windows and shows the desktop (Super = Windows key).

    You do not tell us what you are expecting ctrl+alt-d to do in 12.10. Some key mappings have been changed in 12.10 from 12.04.

    Hold down the super key and a desktop overlay will appear. See if there is a key combination that does what you want. I cannot find any reference to Ctrl+alt+d in System Settings>Keyboard>Shortcuts. Maybe Ctrl+Alt+d is not designed to do anything in 12.10.

    Regards.
