There is some crazy speculation on the "super+M" shortcut in Ubuntu.

It does 2 things:
1. Either invert the whole screen
2. Open that small Envelope Menu containing mail & chat notifications

now, what i want is for the 2nd to happen and NOT the first >.<

So i went to the ccsm, and disabled Negative. But now Super + M is completely unbound and neither of the shortcuts are working

Please help!

good question; I'm investigating as I want to know the general answer too, back soon.. – msw Jun 27 '10 at 5:33
have you tried to reassign the key after deleting the combination? – Michael K Jul 1 '11 at 10:20

In Ubuntu, you can reassign your keyboard bindings through the gconf editor. If memory serves me correctly type gconfig or gconf-editor in your terminal prompt and reassign away.
