I want to assign <Super_L>d to show the desktop, as I'm trying to make a Ubuntu installation look as transparently like windows for a very non-power user friend. However, Super_L is already assigned to show the panel menu, which is a good deal more important, so as soon as the key is pressed the menu shows and the d is irrelevant. I assume windows does it by having the key activate on release rather than on press. Is there any way to implement this in linux? Many thanks in advance for any help.
( I've posted two separate posts for somewhat related keyboard assignments as I find a) two queries at once doesn't usually work and b) it's simpler and more specific if someone else is searching for the info if there's a solution posted. )
