works fine here. What key did you set it to ?

> works fine here. What key did you set it to ?
$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/run_command_terminal_key

$ gconftool-2 --get /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/command_terminal
No value.

$ gconftool-2 --get /desktop/gnome/applications/terminal/exec

Is this compiz bug?

Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2008-03-31 11:21:49 UTC
In the compiz file in /usr/share/gnome-control-center/keybindings/, you can
change which GConf key is used for the keybinding. Maybe they got it wrong?

It's a compiz problem in all cases.

Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 08:25:53 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 5 Ben Gamari 2008-11-27 13:38:00 UTC
This issue in my case has been fixed by switching from the gconf plugin to the ccp plugin as suggested in several places [1][2][3]. I had a discussion on #compiz-fusion with maniac103 who seems to be fairly familiar with the compiz configuration subsystem and he said that there are known issues with using the gconf plugin directly. In fact, ccp is the only supported configuration if using ccsm. Considering OpenSUSE and Ubuntu have both used ccp by default for some time, it seems that Fedora should probably make the switch as well if we want to have a working compositor out of the box. I have attached a log of my conversation with maniac103.

FWIW, this seems to work for me with F11ß.

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:55:55 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-07-14 18:08:09 UTC
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
