I have a strange problem with my keyboard. I just wanted to set a keyboard shortcut on my xfce desktop (Settings Manager > Window Manager > Keyboard) but when I press
ctrl + alt + shift + up
(which is the shortcut I want) it prints
This is what happens exactly, when I put in the shortcut (new key --> new line):
key | shortcut shown by settings manager Ctrl | Control_L Ctrl + Alt | <Primary>Alt_L Ctrl + Alt + Shift | <Primary><Alt>Shift_L Ctrl + Alt + Shift + Up | <Primary><Shift><Alt>Up
and if I press Shift before Alt:
key | shortcut shown by settings manager Ctrl | Control_L Ctrl + Shift | <Primary>Shift_L Ctrl + Shift + Alt | <Primary><Shift>Meta_L Ctrl + Shift + Alt + Up | <Primary><Shift><Alt>Up
Any idea what's wrong? My keyboard layout is set to
de-latin1-nodeadkeys which should be correct.
UPDATE April 2014: I still have this issue. Now with mate. I don't think it's a problem with the window manager. I think it's a problem with the driver or the hardware. Not that the hardware is faulty, I assume this is a wanted feature with this keyboard but I don't want it. My notebook is an HP 8440p.
