That kinda sounds like what I would like, but ... where can you define the Super key? The only thing that I have been able to Google is that "the SUPER key is the Windows key on most keyboards" I don't have most
keyboards - no Windows key.
Also, "not a valid replacement" is almost blasphemy. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=63734
lol, well, colour me educated!
Didn't know that fluxbox could replace metacity and Gnome still work, but it is good to know, thanks
In keyboard preferences, advanced layout options you can fiddle about with mapping the win, alt, super keys but I don't know how much that will help; alternatively I suppose one just rebinds the compiz commands. That said, given that fluxbox would work except for that overriding middle-button setting... I had a lookyloo in gconf-editor and found the following key:
which determines what metacity would do; but then I'm confused about that setting taking effect when fluxbox is being used as the wm instead, besides which there's only a limited number of valid options afa metacity's concerned, nothing fancy (see description in gconf-editor). Compiz has a similar setting but it's something weird like alt+button 6(!), so I guess it's not compiz.
Wish I knew better the terrain; good luck in any event
