Previous to Gnome 3 I had a nice simple flat file for my keyboard settings, that I just unzipped into .gconf and all was good. Now Gnome is copying the very bad idea of a registry from Windows, you have go through the gsettings API or tool.
Locate the keyboard shortcut schema “org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings”
Now lets “export” them
gsettings list-recursively org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings > keybindings
Now unfortunately there does not appear to be a way to import that file, so I just hacked the file. Adding “gsettings set” to the front and quoting the values.
org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop ['<Super>d', '<Primary><Super>d', '<Super>d']
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings show-desktop "['<Super>d', '<Primary><Super>d', '<Super>d']"
I’ve created some keybindins that use the Windows/Super key for window management, plus this don’t conflict with IntellJ
