How do I hardbind
Tab to Show Desktop Grid? When I press
Tab it cancels out the custom input. I even tried exporting scheme and editing file than importing scheme but that doesn’t work either.
How do I hardbind
On my system here, Meta+Tab is bound to switching between Activities. Perhaps you should pick another combination?
I have Meta+F11 for the desktop grid here, although to be fair, I never use that shortcut because I normally bring up the desktop grid by hitting the left edge of the screen with the mouse pointer.
I had the same problem, finally I did set
I did the following (work around):
System Settings > Workspace Behavior > Desktop Effects, and search for grid.
Desktop Gridwas displayed and it is checked.
Click on the
Desktop Grid. On the right hand side there are two icons. The last one is the settings for the
Desktop Grid. Click
The Kwin shortcut key is shown (
Ctrl+F8). Click to the right of
Global Alternatecolumn. I see the following:
x Default: None
O Custom: None
Note: Imagine two radio buttons above. Initially
Default is selected.
Customradio button by clicking it.
Click the textbox with the word
Meta Tab, and in my case a popup was displayed asking me to reassign it.
When I go to
System Settings > Shortcuts > Global Shortcuts, type kwin, and click on
KWin and scroll down to
Show Desktop Grid, it shows
Meta+Tab, Ctrl+F8. I removed the
Meta+Tab and tried to enter the shortcut here. You are right, the
Tab key is not accepted as part of the shortcut, but actually acted upon (tabbing to the next control). It’s a known bug.

This post reminded me that kde5 doesn’t support different wallpaper on virtual desktops any more
To fix that you can use vallpaper, it’s a
desktop type . You can get it from
get a new Wallpapper in desktop configuration
That has been relegated to the Activities now. Activities can different wallpapers, as well as different desktop widgets and different privacy settings.
