    VLC ctrl+ shortcuts are not working

    I have Ubuntu 15.10 and ctrl+ shortcuts in VLC 2.2.1 are not working, for example ctrl+N. Is there any solution to fix this?

    I accidentaly found a workaround. If VLC window is maximized, CTRL+ shortcuts doesn't work, if window is unmaximized, CTRL+ shortcuts works. I guess it is Unity issue (or feature).

    Re: VLC ctrl+ shortcuts are not working

    Now I have installed Ubuntu 16.04. VLC, version 2.2.2-5, manage shortcuts (CTRL + m, n, p, o... ) doesn't work even if window is not maximized.
    Any idea what seems to be a problem?

    Aaaargh. Once again I found out it is probably Unity desktop bug. If we have global menu turned on, this specific shortcuts doesn't work. The workaround is to open media file, press F for fullscreen and F again. Than menu is not in global menu and the shortcuts start to work.

    That came up during xenial dev, gather nothing done,
    If you want to keep global menus in general & just return to vlc see here -
