I just installed 0.4 Loki and I notice that CTRL + SPACE doesn't bring up the Applications menu like it did in 0.3.2 Freya. Is this a bug or am I missing something?

    In Freya too Applications menu was triggered by Super-Space. That can be changed though.

  • Interesting. Typing gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.wm.keybindings panel-main-menu gives ['<Primary>space'] in Freya, but ['<Super>space','<Alt>F2''] in Loki. What's the difference between Primary and Super?

It uses the "super" key + space.

super = windows button.

It's basically an effort to work more like Mac OS
