The Super key shortcut trigger by "keyup" instead of "keydown" would be nice

By default, the shortcut Super is bind to start xfce4-popup-whiskermenu.
Because of keydown event will trigger the Super key, it is not working when I make another shortcut like Super + M. Every time I press Super + M, the whiskermenu always popup :frowning:, and it did not open mine application exactly.

Apologized to my poor English:expressionless:

Welcome to the Forum!

Take a look at this thread as it might help you solve your problem:

  • Rebind whisker menu to something else e.g. Alt+F1

  • Install xcape

  • xcape -e 'Super_L=Alt_L|F1' << Add to startup, test in terminal first.

Tapping Super = menu, Holding = Super.
