Hello everyone. I have following problem. Shortcuts like ctrl+C ctrl+V ctrl+A don't work in applications like dolphin, kate kwrite.

In settings of kde, in shortcuts I can overwrite existing shortcuts. So, when the dialogue ask me to input new key combination, I can see, ctrl+something combinations succsessfully bound there. Bot it still doesn't work in apps. In konsole, other kinds of terminals, in rename dialogue of dolphin, in address field of browsers and in browsers at all everything is working fine.

In IDE WebStorm ctrl+ shortcuts don't work, but if I try to rebind shortcuts there it shows, that the key has undefined keycode. Even without ctrl, every letter on keyboard has undefined keycode, but it's ok with numbers, F1, F2 ... F12, numpad keys, ctrl, alt, tab, etc... I have no idea why things go this way.

P.S. in liveCD ctrl+ shortcuts go fine.

I've found how to fix dat crap! You've got to edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/00-keyboard.conf file. There will be an option Option "XkbLayout", there list of your keyboar layouts. Make sure us option is the first option in that enumeration.
