What I love most about the Steam Overlay
The fact that it releases all grabs while it is active, so if your volume keys, alt+tab, etc doesn't work in a game, just shift+tab to bring up the overlay then they will work :)

Not specific to Linux, but it seems much more common for Linux games to disable these keys.

This is actually an awesome workaround until a definitive solution comes around.
Thanks.

Well, I sure am glad to hear about this because games that claim all my keys and don't allow me to alt-tab annoy me to no end.

good to know that works, but I wish that the keys worked while running games without the overlay
