Ubuntu Mate 18.04 – How to Disable Emoji Input

18.04emojimateubuntu-mate

Just noticed this annoying emoji input ("Emoji Choice") popping up every time I press Ctrl+Shift+E in 18.04. I really need this shortcut to switch to the file explorer in Visual Studio Code but instead I only get the emoji input. Is there a way to disable this or at least change the shortcut? Don't want to change the VCS's shortcut because of this, I'm really used to it

Just a small hint: In case you don't find the IBus Preferences dialog, open a Terminal shell and type

ibus-setup

A dialog like this will appear on your screen:
