Expo opens on it's own

Postby homr » Fri Feb 08, 2013 11:06 am

I recently installed LinuxMint 14 with Cinnamon into a VirtualBox VM on my Windows 7 machine. It seems to randomly open "Expo", showing me small versions of all of my workspaces while I'm working -- as if I had clicked on the hot-spot. Could I be doing some gesture or something to trigger this?

CTRL+ALT+UP goes to Expo
CTRL+ALT+DOWN goes to Scale

Apparently, so if you are using those shortcuts that would trigger it.

It's happening when I'm not touching the keyboard. It seems to always be when I'm moving the cursor around with the mouse -- which is why I was wondering if there's a gesture for it or something. I've never seen it happen when the machine is just idle.

Maybe VirtualBox just randomly generates a ctrl-alt-up keypress from time to time?

The top left hot corner triggers expo. In a virtualbox it's best to disable it. Got to Cinnamon Settings and disable hot corner.
