Description Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-08-07 16:49:12 EDT

Note that Alt-space as far as I know this particular keybinding is not
configurable with metacity (I could be wrong though), so this bug is not a
special case of the "should use metacity keybindings".
Comment 1 Kristian Høgsberg 2006-08-23 15:04:23 EDT
I don't think there's UI for changing it, but there is the
/apps/metacity/window_keybindings/activate_window_menu gconf key.

compiz has /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/window_menu_key which
defaults to <Alt>space, which works for me here.  Also I just changed it to
<Control><Alt>space so it doesn't interfer with emacs' keybindings - that also
