That is because when using Xgl, the default window manager for KDE - kwin - is 
replaced with compiz or beryl. The Alt+F2 shortcut may not be functional 
there. If you are using compiz-manager (comes with the latest compiz version 
from the SuSE repository - I am not sure if it is available for other 
distros), you can set shortcuts there. I am using another shortcut for Run - 
the Win+R and it is still working with Xgl, maybe because it is not used by 

Blade hails you...
