I upgraded Ubuntu 14.10 to 15.04 and ALL my Keyboard shortcuts are broken.
I mean shortcuts like ctrl+alt+t, fn+any arrows.
I checked keyboard settings and all is turned on.
Any idea how to fix it ?
Am using notebook y50-70.

gnome-settings-daemon isn't starting on boot, for some reason. The workaround to that is to add
gnome-settings-daemon to Startup Applications or add it as a
.desktop entry, into
/home/yourusername/.config/autostart/ directory. The
.desktop entry could be named
gnome-settings-daemon.desktop and look something like this:
[Desktop Entry] Type=Application Exec=gnome-settings-daemon Hidden=false Name=gnome-setting-daemon
This is my guess on why that daemon isn't starting: Ubuntu 15.04 , from what I've heard, has switched for different system for starting processes at boot - there used to be
upstart and 14.04 (which is what I use) has that. Meanwhile 15.04 uses
systemd . My guess is that this transition has broke some things, but hopefully by the time we get to next LTS release, everything will be fixed
I made a clean install to Lubuntu 18.04 I found myself with the same issue, hotkeys were not working. After reading openbox-lxde help web pages I noticed that the required software packages were missing. When installing the OS I recalled having selected a minimal install; I thought that would account for the missing packages. The working solution I applied was to issue the following commands:
sudo apt install openbox-lxde-session sudo openbox-lxde --reconfigure
