I am using Mint Linux 14 with OpenBox. I am trying to use "Ctrl-Shift-A" on my IDE but it is not being triggered. I am guessing it is mapped to something else, but there seems to be no simple way to find out the system key mapping. I went through rc.xml file for OpenBox specific mapping, but nothing is mapped to that key. Here are the applications I've installed on top of a vanilla Mint Linux installation:

openbox dmenu tint2 terminator thunar wmctrl conky nitrogenv clipit lxappearance

If simple key-map look up is not possible, how can I detect everything that is triggered on an X server?
