Ubuntu – Super Key does not invoke activities in Gnome Shell 3.8


Pressing the Super key does not launch the Activities, although the hot key to the top left corner to activate Activities do work. I tried following the link here but the solution there does not work for me.

I am running Ubuntu 13.10, Gnome 3.8 Shell. I had a similar issue with Unity few days back but I resolved that via Unity plugin in ccsm.

Having the same problem I ended up here. Though it was Super Left in the dconf-editor, my super key was not working. Inspired by adiyaarun1's comment, I opened up Tweak Tool—>Keyboard and Mouse. If you change Switch between overview and desktop to Super left the problem should be solved as it was my case.
