Hi All,

on fedora 19 lxde (beta), pressing C-M-f (Control-Meta-f) opens an application named 'Manage History'. I can't find this in $HOME/config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml so I have no way to remove this keybinding as it clashes with paredit's default paredit-forward binding.

Tl;dr need to disable the C-M-f keybinding to 'Manage History' app, where is it defined?

grep -n C-A-f ~/.config/openbox/lxde-rc.xml

edit retag flag offensive close merge delete


This issue did not exist in fedora 17 lxde.

I'm having the same issue for the same reason in emacs. What person decided this was a good idea? Worse yet to have hidden it in an un-documented place?

EDIT: I've been struggling with this issue for a while and found a post that referred to the "clipit" program's "manage history" feature: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic.php?pid=251957

Removing this program and it's running instance solved the issue for me, the following commands should work. This was done on a "Fedora 20" system, but should work for "Fedora 19" as well:

sudo yum erase clipit
killall clipit

You could request upstream to change the mapping since it conflicts with an application as popular as Emacs.
