I use Ubuntu 11.10. And I have a big problem.

In some programs Ctrl+A doesn't work. For example in Chrome Ctrl+A doesn't work; only in text areas. In Gedit Ctrl+A doesn't work at all. In Qutim Ctrl+A works well.

I had this problem too, but with Gnome 3.10.

After reading the @Sk8er, I found my mistake, the Key Theme should not be EMACS.

To fix it:

Run gnome-tweak-tool > Keyboard and Mouse > Key Theme

Set the Key Theme value to Default.
