Restoring Super+<Num> Window Switching in Linux Mint 19.3
UPDATE: This is no longer needed as an update has been released which restores this functionality.
Linux Mint 19.3 “Tricia” has recently been released. After upgrading, I was disappointed to find that one of the most used feature, switching applications using the Super+<Num> (Win+<Num>) key has been removed with no configuration option to enable it back.
And I’m not the only one
This is the patch: https://gist.github.com/pawitp/fb74c6da0a8e9e5f6738669c8e502195
And here’s how you can apply it
cp -pR email@example.com ~/Desktopfirstname.lastname@example.org
# Apply the patch
curl https://gist.githubusercontent.com/pawitp/fb74c6da0a8e9e5f6738669c8e502195/raw/0c145dc936253fd339574bb18b81c720a42e8855/super_num.patch | sudo patch -p0
After logging out and back in again, the shortcuts should now work!
Note that this is just a hack which may get overwritten the next time you upgrade Cinnamon.
