    how to permamently disable or change default key bindings

    Hi,
    I want to know how I can modify the default keybindings on my Ubuntu 12.10 system using Unity window manager.
    I want to disable 'move window' keybinding ALT-F8 and ALT-F7.
    I changed it in keyboad->shortcuts but every time I reboot my machine the default settings seem to be back.

    Does somebody has got an idea what I can do ?

    thank you,
    detlef

    Run each command in terminal...
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings begin-resize []
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings begin-move []
    To revert changes use...
    Code:
    gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings begin-move
    gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings begin-resize

    Hi,
    thank you. I added these lines to my .profile.
    One thing is still open for me:

    When I check the keys I can find 'panel-main-menu' is bound to ALT+F1.
    This I also want to 'free' for my application. If I set it to [] however,
    this has got no effect.
    Seems there is another key binding config for unity ?

    Maybe you know that.
    Thanks in advance.

    The gsettings command
    Code:
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu []
    should disable alt+F1 in dconf and
    ccsm > Gnome Compatibilty

    However there is another setting to disable in
    ccsm > Ubuntu Unity Plugin
