    [11.04] Keyboard shortcuts do not work after window close, if conky is running

    1. I open an application e.g. terminal
    2. I close the application's window
    3. Keyboard shortcuts do not work at all and if I want them back working, I have to click on the desktop's background
    I bet it has something to do with focus or compiz settings, because I've already had some problems with those in Unity. Now I'm on the "classic" ubuntu desktop. It didn't happen before upgrade.. Please help me. This is very inconveniant.

    I've got an update. The problem occured only when I closed the last window. Then the shortcuts didn't work. I've found that conky did it, because when I killed it, the k. shortcuts were working again, after the last closed window. The question now is: how can I use conky and prevent it from destroying my keyboard shortcuts?

    Thanks for figuring this out. Too bad that this setting gets rid of the transparency for the window - it doesn't look nearly as good, now.

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
