I am currently using my personal Lenovo laptop with the KDE Plasma DE. Everything is great except that everytime I restart my computer the ‘Esc’ key gets set as the shortcut for the audio volume control widget in my system tray. No matter how many times I go into the shortcut settings and delete this shortcut, or set it to something else, when I restart the ‘Esc’ key is back at it with these shenanigans.
Please help me stop this madness.
You mean this shortcut ?
Make sure you set your session to start empty
so it not getting the settings from the previous session …
Thanks for the reply. It is indeed the keyboard shortcut you indicated. My Desktop session settings are currently set to ‘Start with an empty session’. I don’t think I ever set the shortcut to be ‘Esc’ but may have accidentally done it at some point.
Take a look inside the following files:
for this content there:
activate widget 9=Esc,none,Activate Audio Volume Widget
for this content, or something similar:
and delete them manually, save the files, log out and back in.
Thank you so much! This did the trick. Previously, I tried to tinker with ~/.config/kglobalshortcutsrc and set
activate widget 9=none,none,Activate Audio Volume Widget but this didn’t really work. After making your suggested edits and restarting, things seem to be back to normal. Thanks again!
