Description Sudhir Khanger 2014-12-13 19:59:15 UTC
KDE 4 has a few shortcuts to work with Activities.

Meta+Q opens the Activity switcher widget and shows all activities.
Meta+Tab can be used just like how you using Alt+Tab for windows. To shuffle through all the activites.

Both of these shortcuts don't work in Plasma 5. SystemSettings>Shortcut doesn't have any option for these to be manually configures.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press Meta+Q or Meta+Tab or Alt+D, Alt+A
2. See if you activity switcher opens or activities are switched.

Actual Results:  
Shortcuts don't work

Expected Results:  
Meta+Q should show all activities.
Meta+Tab should be able to switch to next activity.
Meta+Shift+Tab should be able to switch to previous activity.
