Small Details – Ubuntu 17.10 – Configurations

There are some minor details that  I want to mention about my upgrade to Ubuntu 17.10

  • The command key for window switching  <alt>+<tab> is mixing  with vitualbox guests ( even when they are fullscreen). I could not find a way to fix but there is a workaround to fix to acceptable status. I have changed the <alt>+<tab> keyboard combination to <super>+<tab>.
    • Install dconf-editor
    • Change the “/org/gnome/desktop/wm/keybindings/switch-applications” value to [‘<Super>Tab’] ( which means remove the <alt>+<tab> entry
  • Add folder to nautilus folders in the sidebar ( bookmarks of the nautilus)
    • Edit the file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/bookmarks
    • Add the folder you want to add as bookmark to nautilus
