[manjaro-dev] confusion over gconf settings

Hi Kendell!
I think that the keybindings were simply using the wrong key codes. When 
I use mate-control-center to change them, modifiers are being referred 
to as Mod4 instead of Super and Ctrl instead od Primary ;)
Later tonight I will have more time and will try with the overrides 
again with those names and then also see if I can get the custom 
keybindings to work like that :)
I can also see for the panel configuration with a properly placed menu. 
I think I know how to fix that.
Also I am wondering if it will be a good idea to make it a little larger 
and about gtk-theming if we could use something with better contrast maybe?
At the moment theming defaults to Menta and I am wondering if 
Adwaita-Manjaro-Dark with britght items on a dark panel and dark window 
title bars wouldn't be better... Could you check that?
I'm afraid I have not idea about the default volume level, yet...
