    After Ubuntu 14.04 upgrade, Gnome3 keyboard shortcuts not working

    I've just upgraded from 13.10 to 14.04. Quite a few problems along the way, but I've managed to get everything working again except that my keyboard shortcuts in Gnome are not working. For example, I have ctl-alt-/ bound to the terminal launcher. Nothing now happens when I use that shortcut. I've gone into Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts, and re-assigned the shortcut. Still not working. I've tried different key combinations, also not working, and tried creating a custom shortcut in case the launch terminal command is borked somehow. Standard keyboard actions like alt-tab, etc, are working fine, it's just my custom settings that are not working.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Thanks,
    Ian

    I have the same problem plus the keyboard configuration is lost after the login: as short time remedy I'm using

    $ sudo dpkg-reconfigure keyboard-configuration

    but as soon I reboot the system and I do the log in, the configuration is lost again. This may be a bug, but to be honest I'm not that confident with system level stuff, so for now I'm waiting for some help before fileing it as such. I tried to remove the other languages from the Text Entry Settings, but it did not work. TIA

    Thank you for the tip, I have the same problem.
    However your command is only to reconfigure the keyboard and in my case it does not fix the keyboard shorcut issue.

    If any has a solution ....

    Just in case anyone is counting, I also have the same problem.

    I'm having the same issue. The odd thing is that it works in a guest session, but not in my main user account. Can anybody confirm whether their guest account has working shortcuts?

    I have the same problem.
    Deleting the ~/.gconf file and logging out and back in fixes it for me until the next reboot, after which I have to do it again.
