25 Apr 2013 Disable Windows super key in Ubuntu

I am running a virtualized Windows 8 installation on VMware Worlstation in Ubuntu 12.10 and this can be confusing since the window manager uses the same key as my Windows machine to open the launcher. Therefore I use to disable the super key in Ubuntu so that only my Windows machine responds to the key.

This is one way to disable the super key from a console window as the user you are logged in with:

# dconf write /org/compiz/profiles/unity/plugins/unityshell/show-launcher '""'

This command does not require a logoff or restart so you can test the behaviour of the Windows super key immediately.

You might have to install the apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager package if this command does not work.
