snap to grid not working in Ubuntu 64 bit

using 64 bit Blender on Ubuntu 8.10, control is not snapping to grid, and when I click on the snap option in prefs nothing happens either. Anyone else experiencing this?

well its working on my m/c

Perhaps Control is being intercepted by Compiz?

Hmmm I think compiz is off, since Blender starts up :wink: I tried to lower my screen effects to the lowest level, still no snapping. Control actually works for key commands, just not snapping. Using 2.48a.

Oh my I’m an idiot, I must have clicked the new snapping mode somewhere along the line and then Ctrl-U’ed it. D’oh!
