I have a problem with keyboard shortcuts such as Alt+Ctrl+T and Alt+Ctrl+Backspace. They don't work anymore. I have logged out, logged in, rebooted, powered off completely, and restarted Compiz several times. But Ctrl+Alt+T does not open a terminal or anything else.

Can anyone suggest a fix or what I should look at?

The first thing I would recommend is checking the settings in Keyboard, which is found in System Settings under Hardware section.

Keyboard settings in Ubuntu 11.10

You will see here that the setting is set to Ctrl+Alt+T. If this is different on your system, just click on it and then press Ctrl+Alt+T to reassign it.
