New keyboard layout changer in Ubuntu 13.10 introduce old-new bug. Any system or application hotkey witch use char (for example: ctrl+alt+t for terminal or ctrl+t for new tab in browser) become unfunctional when selected non-latin keyboard layout.
Hotkeys with F1-12, numbers and other non-character buttons works perfectly.
Window manager hotkeys not affected by this bug. All hotkeys in system
parameters->keyboard->hotkeys->windows works perfect with any keyboard
Workaround for some system hotkeys and two layouts (english and non-
latin): rebind all hotkeys in your local layout. For example instead
of ctrl+alt+t use ctrl+alt+τ (greek tau). That hotkey still work with
english layout. If you use english and two different non-latin
layouts this workaround helps only with one of them.
Dear Ubuntu users and developers!
Please include the following information to your comment about non-latin shortcuts problems:
1. What Ubuntu version do you have (Ubuntu 13.10, Ubuntu 13.10 GNOME, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 14.04 GNOME and so on), upgraded (describe version) or clean installed
2. What keyboard layout do you have
3. What shortcut for keyboard layout switching do you use
4. On which session you have problems - that is one from Unity, GNOME Shell, GNOME FlashBack/Fallback (Metacity), GNOME FlashBack/Fallback (Compiz)
5. With which program and its version and origin (Ubuntu repositories, PPA, non-deb binary package from some website) you have problems.
By providing this information you can make bug-fixing much simpler and
may be faster.
