I've changed shortcuts for terminal to copy, Ctrl+C, paste, Ctrl+V, and interrupt the application, Ctrl+J.

Copy and past works fine but interruption doesn't.The terminal just doesn't react on Ctrl+J shortcut. So then I should put command stty intr ^J for every session to make terminal work properly.

Is there the possibility to fix this problem?

Appending stty intr ^J to ~/.bashrc should do it.
