This question already has an answer here:

I would like to not copy all settings from my previous Ubuntu install, but I would like to restore my keyboard shortcuts.

Are these shortcuts stored in some hidden folder in my home folder, and if so which?

I would like to restore as few other settings along with them as possible.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Everything is inside the .gconf folder in your home directory

You can run the following command to see which files in that directory contain information about your keybindings:

$~ ls -aR | grep 'gconf.*keybindings'

However, you should ALWAYS search before posting, this question is the same as yours as far as I can tell, and has some good answers.
