problem with unwanted Klipper (or other) keyboard shortcut

Hi!
There seems to be a global shortcut set on my system that invokes a list of clipboard history items from which I can "Select to paste". This happens when I press "CTRL+;" in any window. But I need this shortcut for something else...
I have searched in all the global and custom keyboard shortcut settings, but this does not seem to be set anywhere. Not sure if this is the KDE built-in Klipper Clipboard utility, or something else.
Does anyone recognize the dialog box I am getting, or know how to disable this behavior?

Ctrl + ( using non-numeric-pad + )

NUM + and regular +

are separate keys.

if its truely a global scut it must be visible in the shortcut KCM

else it may be some weird DBUS script outside of KDE

ctrl + (not NUMpad) is ZOOM-function usually - wait - may not be quite global ... ???

pls add back some Karma to me thx ^-^

Hi Zachus,
Thanks but I am not typing a "+" sign. Rather I am holding CTRL and hitting the semicolon. (It is standard to separate parts of a keyboard shortcut notation with plus character, but I am not actually touching any plus key). Perhaps any other ideas?

CTRL ;

gotcha!


CTRL ;

is being used in Kate for a config dialog. otherwise non KDE standard. sry for confusion...

its possible , some app used DBUS instruction to add that shortcut. maybe poss to remove that via DBUS too ! o)

I get it in all apps though, not just Kate. Any idea how to track it down or disable it, whether it is DBUS, etc?

xbindkeys

let me point out that xbindkeys package allows reconfigure of hotkeys as well.

there are GUI tools to see the key bindings , meaning what key does what.

Tried running xbindkeys but got error below, so I do not think the offending combo is set using xbindkeys... Any other ideas?
Error : /home/john/.xbindkeysrc not found or reading not allowed.
please, create one with 'xbindkeys --defaults > /home/john/.xbindkeysrc'.
or, if you want scheme configuration style,
with 'xbindkeys --defaults-guile > /home/john/.xbindkeysrc.scm'.
