I am migrating over from CrunchBang (well, using both of them), and my favorite feature of that is being able to bind Super+W to firefox, Super+F to the home folder, etc. I just find it much more clunky to use ctrl+shift+w. Is there any workaround for this?
I was having a similar issue to that - Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts would not (and still won't) let me bind things using Super as a modifier - it would just detect the button as Super_L (or Super_R) regardless of what other buttons I pressed. I tried disabling the Ctrl+Super shortcut for the MintMenu (as I don't care to use it) and it didn't take effect... until I restarted X (Ctrl+Alt+Backspace). After that, the Firefox shortcut I made in the "Commands" plugin of Compiz Config Settings Manager also worked. So the Gnome "Keyboard Shortcuts" thing still won't let me set shorcuts including Super, but Compiz will so it's all good.
For anyone with problems like mine, hopefully this is useful information?
