Deleting GNOME's hidden keyboard shortcuts

tl;dr - gnome has shortcuts that are installed by default and not visible in the control center. if setting a shortcut doesn't produce the desired result, it's likely that a hidden shortcut already exists and gnome is ignoring your "redundant" one. which is terrible UI design, but that's another story

to fix the problem, do something like: gsettings list-recursively | grep "\['6'\]" | while read schema key line; do gsettings set $schema $key "[]"; done leaving this here mostly as a note to myself for the next time i run into this
