I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.10 and wanted to boot with the unity environment, but when I did, I noticed that the keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+Alt+T for the terminal were not working(only when I boot in unity).
How can I fix that?

The comments on the bug linked there suggest to switch from LightDM to GDM3 until the bug is fixed.
sudo apt-get install gdm, and then your password when prompted, or run
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm. (Taken from here)
As already mentioned in the comments by Aramil Rey, removing the following configuration files seemed to fix the problem:
And in my case it was a permanent solution and not a temporarily one. For example this can be done by:
mkdir ~/backupFixSO972940 mv ~/.compiz ~/.gconf ~/.gnome* ~/.kde ~/backupFixSO972940
If this does not work, you can also add
~/.config to the list, but be careful as this folder also contains a lot of application related configuration files, thus I advice to make a backup (mv) instead of deleting (rm) all folders directly like from the original solution.
