Linux:Mint 14 Mate
I am trying to bind the left control to open the Run Dialog on Linux, usually opened by Alt-F2, but the configuration manager refuses to assign this single key to a macro.
I tried using xmodmap to remap it to key bad subtract which is "KP_Subtract", this key can be used for this purpose. but this did not work although the key turned into (-) it didn't run the dialog. you can run the dialog from the (-) on the key pad.
Between the tries I succeeded for a temporary time, but that is it!
I tried this today on a friend Ubuntu and it worked after remaping with xmodmap.
