Ubuntu – How to unbind Super key from menu in Lubuntu


I just installed Lubuntu 11.10. I spend quite a bit of time in Emacs, and I have a bunch of key bindings that rely on the Super key. However, Lubuntu captures the Super key press and opens the main menu every time. This is quite frustrating.

How I do I unbind this super key behavior? I've tried tweaking lubuntu-rc.xml with no luck.

Editing .config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml (Lubuntu 12.04) worked here. It's line 177, and the original relevant part looked like this: <keybind key="Super_L". Changed it to <keybind key="", logged out/in, and the Super key does nothing.
