I suppose your WM catches keyboard events. Unfortunatelly I don't know
how to change it in xfce (I don't use it). You can try KDE where it's
easy to change shortcuts settings.

Well i have deleted all the configurable shortcuts in settings manager
but i have the same problem, anyone here knows how to fix that? Thanks
in advance.
