Fresh install of 14.04 unity ubuntu. These shortcuts don't work. Was not able to find the solution. Has anybody has the same problem?

  • Could you give more detail? In what program were you trying to use these shortcuts? Terminal is a common exception were you need to use Shift + Ctrl + C for Copy , Shift + Ctrl + V for Paste. – Torrien Jan 13 '16 at 3:43
  • Hi! it's in all programs. Email, webbroswer, spreadsheet, text editor. – Sparc Jan 13 '16 at 5:00

From what I understand this may be a bug in 14.04 Unity. See bug report here looks like a few others have had some problems


Looks like this was for 13.10 but seems can affect 14.04 unity desktop as well. Maybe try using Compiz to set your own shortcuts up and see if that helps...

I am running Xubuntu 14.04 and don't have any problems. Hope this helps...

  • Thanks for your suggestion, I had been using 14.04 with lubuntu also without problem. I will try compiz. – Sparc Jan 14 '16 at 3:02
  • I didn't manage to make it work with compiz. – Sparc Jan 14 '16 at 6:11
