I've read many online resources, but got nothing.

Shortcuts like Ctrl+c | Ctrl+v | Ctrl+x don't work in most of applications when I switch to Russian layout, but when I switch back to English (US) everything works ok. -- It is terrible!

I tried to move English layout to the top of layouts' order, but it doesn't help.

  • Could you give some examples of applications where it fails? I just tried this by switching between Greek (which also has a different alphabet and should have the same problem) and English and Ctrl+X/C/V worked fine in firefox. Other shortcuts will fail but these tend to work. – terdon Apr 13 '14 at 14:00
  • Only FF and Chrome works correctly, the other programs like Phpstorm, nautilus, skype, kingsoft office etc doesn't deal with russia layout – Timur Fayzrakhmanov Apr 13 '14 at 14:05

    Which version of Ubuntu and which desktop environment are you using? That looks like Unity, is that correct? I tried on Ubuntu 13.10 and Unity and the shortcuts worked fine in nautilus (version 3.8.2) as well. – terdon Apr 13 '14 at 14:17

    @MahdiParsa Hello now I'm using 14.04.1, but it doesn't matter in solving layout problem. I solve my problem by using another software as far as possible. For example, I used Kingsoft Office and because of the problem I switched to LibreOffice. However Phpstorm 7 still makes me to switch layout if I want to copy/paste/cut – Timur Fayzrakhmanov Aug 1 '14 at 15:47

    I had the same problem and I solved it using following instructions: 1) sudo add-apt-repository ppa:attente/java-non-latin-shortcuts 2) sudo apt-get update 3) sudo apt-get dist-upgrade Hope it will help you too. – Bakhtiyor Dec 5 '16 at 11:37
