I can be short about this, I'm used to that Ctrl-z clears my previous action, for example when typing. Now running Debian 8 With GNOME 3 it does not work, when I press Ctrl-z the "Enter a command" dialog is shown.What is the debian/GNOME3 equivalent for Ctr-z (undo) or even better how can I make Ctrl-z do the Undo'ing?

Thanks anyway.

  • help.gnome.org/users/gnome-help/stable/… is probably what you a looking for. Let me know if it helps and I'll type it up as an answer proper so you can accept it. – Lefty G Balogh Jan 25 '17 at 19:13
  • Thanks, I already been through this, nothing mentioned about undo-shortcut or something like it. – Beach Chicken Jan 25 '17 at 19:18
  • So it is not the shortcut but the "undo" functionality you are after, right? What exactly are you trying to undo? – Lefty G Balogh Jan 26 '17 at 17:01
  • Yes it is the undo function. Usage example: when making typos. – Beach Chicken Jan 26 '17 at 17:22

Sounds like you've defined a custom keybinding for Ctrl+z, to clear it you can remove the custom shortcut, or re-assign the shortcut key: Settings → Keyboard → Shortcuts → Custom Shortcuts
