View Full Version : [gnome] Alt-Tab Doesn't Work in Gnome Classic

Alt-Tab between windows used to work (I think), but it doesn't now. The screen doesn't react at all when alt + tab are pressed.

This is my wife's computer (though I did the install), so I'm not sure what could have occurred or when. She is running 12.04 LTS. Couldn't find this addressed in any other thread.

Seems to work OK in Unity, but she's not going to use Unity.

Any help is appreciated.

Mardybear, this worked. I used the first method by using ccsm. Thank you very much.

But I first tried the last method of using System Tools -> System Settings -> Keyboard, but that already showed alt+tab configured to change applications. Nothing I did with that helped, such as clearing the key and restoring it.

The alt+tab function has a different "look and feel" from the alt+tab on my notebook, which is running the same release of Ubuntu. I remember having the same problem on my notebook back in April, and I likely fixed it the same way. I'm getting old and I don't remember stuff anymore... One difference is that the video is a little scrambled while tha alt and tab keys are pressed.

Thanks again. It's good to have this feature (back).
