Linuxmint 14 Cinnamon 32 bit up to date
The following problem does not occur when I boot into the Gnome Shell Desktop Environment; I only have this problem in Cinnamon.
I installed a Cinnamon extension called 3D App Switcher 3.0.1 (http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/extensions/view/18
) which not only didn't work; it also killed my Alt-Tab switching. Alt-Tab worked fine for months before I installed the extension.
By "killed" I mean that repeatedly hitting Alt-Tab no longer cycles through my open windows like it once did. When I first hit Alt-Tab, the panel showing my open windows appears and my current active window is selected, but Alt-Tab and Shift-Alt-Tab do nothing now.
What does work after hitting Alt-Tab is using Alt-LeftArrow or Alt-RightArrow to cycle through my open windows.
It was extremely difficult to uninstall this extension, but I'm rid of it but not its bad effect, viz., repeatedly hitting Alt-Tab or Shift-Alt-Tab now no longer cycles through my open windows.
Cinnamon Settings->Keyboard->Keyboard shortcuts->"Cycle through open windows" shows Alt-Tab as the keyboard binding. To add insult to injury, I can't change the keyboard shortcut for "Cycle through open windows" to something else.
So is my only option to reinstall Linuxmint?
