Question super key in xfce


I'm looking to switch from Ubuntu to another distro and decided to try live Crunchbang with xfce.

To my surprise it requires super key + some other key which isn't a big deal until I realize my super key isn't working in Crunchbang. I held down super and hit every conceivable key to no avail.

My computer is an Acer Aspire 5534 if its keyboard layout is considered to be wonky. I am using a US layout. The super key works fine with Ubuntu 10.10 when I want to see the desktop among other commands.

Did you set up your keyboard the same way as in Ubuntu? I normaly use the PC-105 layout and I haven't ever had problems with the super-key on any distribution.

For a start, try running xev to see what the super keys are actually being recognised as.
