Which shortcuts do you mean? Do they work with control instead of alt?

Comment 2 adam.huffman 2001-10-23 15:35:06 UTC
The shortcuts to switch between different windows and to change to a different
desktop/workspace e.g. M-F1, M-Tab.

They didn't work with control either.

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-10-23 15:43:33 UTC
If you run "xev" and type the shortcuts into that, what does it output for the
key press event?
