Using latest Kubuntu KDE, I try to open up DevTools in Chrome by hitting Ctrl+I as given in the Tools menu. But it does not work. Ctrl+J however opens Javascript console.

Can you suggest a solution? Is there a way to find out which key binding overrides the Chrome key bindings?

The correct combination is Shift+Ctrl+I and it is used by Kopete. You can remove the key combination by assigning Shift+Ctrl+I to any other action and then changing it back (See Custom Shortcuts, for example).

Or just use F12.
