Hi people, I am just new to linux world and trying to learn things here. I am having a problem with the dock to work properly. I also tried reinstalling it. Here are the error/warning messages. Need help here and thank you.

the shortkeys <Super>L and <Super>Return are used 2 times (either by 2 applets, or by another process)
you can see that in the configuration window of the dock, in "shortkeys", and then you can assign another shortkey to these actions
