Alt-Shift-Up in the NetBeans Java Editor on Ubuntu

When you press Alt-Shift-Up to move a selected piece of code upwards in the NetBeans Java Editor on Ubuntu, you'll find a clash of keyboard shortcuts with Ubuntu's own keyboard shortcuts.

Thomas Kruse from the Munster JUG told me how to fix that:

  1.  sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

  2. Start the settings manager by, for example, going to System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager.

  3. Then go to Window Management -> Scale -> Bindings and then rebind or disable "Initiate Window Picker", which is bound to Shift-Alt-Up by default.

The above solution works for me. Thanks Thomas!

    It's a pity this keyboard binding could not be find at standart system settings and additional application install is required =\
