keyboard shortcuts only work ntermittently

Postby dove » 2017-12-17 00:02

I have two computers with stretch mate 64b and keyboard shortcuts only work intermittently (like alt+f2 for run) If I open firefox they work? Is there anyway to get them to work without doing this? thanx

i know it's always tricky when something happens randomly for no apparent reason, but this is not a good problem description.
we need much more information.
and you need to somehow narrow it down.
it's called troubleshooting.
also read the first link in my signature.

It is the Marco (Compton GPU compositor) that was causing this (?) I switched to Marco software compositor and all is good. TO bad I like the look of Compton better.
