Xubuntu 18.04: key to switch monitors brings up whiskermenu; can't switch monitor

Asked by Willem Hobers on 2018-04-15

Using Xubuntu 18.04 daily on Notebook
    product: 80UD (LENOVO_MT_80UD_BU_idea_FM_Lenovo ideapad 110-15ISK)
    vendor: LENOVO
    version: Lenovo ideapad 110-15ISK
    serial: MP16LZHW
    width: 64 bits
Linux Xubuntu-18-04 4.15.0-13-generic #14-Ubuntu SMP Sat Mar 17 13:44:27 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

When an extra monitor is connected (through HDMI) pressing fn+f10 should only bring up a menu to switch monitors. But instead whiskermenu is opened before the monitor-switching-menu.
No other fn+function key shows the same behaviour.
I have the super key mapped to open whiskermenu.

Anyone else seeing this behaviour?

Is this a bug? If so: which part of the system is likely to be doing this?

I suggest you report a bug. Bionic is not ready and not stable

Thank you.
Which package would you suggest?

Probably wayland as it is the display manager so collects the inputs too. It will be moved if the package is incorrect.

I have the same laptop. So there are no other major issues? A previous release reportedly bricked these laptops. My current version drops the wifi connection somewhat frequently. Did that happen to you? Is it fixed in 18.04? Thanks.

AZ, there are no other issues as far as I can tell - but mind you, I asked this question when Bionic was still in development, so any problems I may have experienced back then, will probably have bee solved by now.

As to wifi dropping: I'm currently testing 18.10, and wifi works well. Except when trying to connect to an Eduroam/GovRoam-wifi connection. See here for the bug report: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/network-manager/+bug/1773849.
But, as stated, this is when running 18.10.

Hope this answers your questions.

Can you help with this problem?
