Super+number key combos can't be overriden in GNOME 3.32
In GNOME 3.30 and older,
Super+number combos were not bound to anything by default, and I used them to switch to workspaces (so
Super+1 to switch to workspace 1,
Super+2 to switch to workspace 2, etc). In GNOME 3.32, these combos are bound to start or focus a favorite application number X from GNOME overview (so
Super+1 starts/focuses the first favorite app,
Super+2 the second one, etc). These shortcuts are not configurable (at least I haven't found a place to change/disable them). The problem is that you can override them in control-center and assign desktop switching to them, but that works only until gnome-shell is restarted (or perhaps there's a race condition, either way it doesn't work reliably).
So here's my request. Please make sure that if the user overrides these combos using control-center, they override the defaults correctly and the new combos work properly. Thank you.
Super+1/2/3/4to start favorite app X
- Use control-center and set
Switch to workspace Xto
Super+1/2/3/4, they switch workspaces (with the exception of the last free workspace, that can't be switched to, and instead a favorite app launches)
- Restart gnome-shell (
r, or re-log)
Super+1/2/3/4, they no longer switch workspaces, but again launch favorite app X
