Kubuntu 11.10 keyboard shortcuts fail

Asked by Antonio Sánchez


It seems keyboard shortcuts custom associations are not working in Kubuntu 11.10 (64 bits).

I have created a shortcut for opening E-mail client (Thunderbird) using 'Mail' hot-key, using 'Standard shortcuts' preference window. The hot-key is detected and the shortcut is configured, but pressing the hot-key does nothing. The same for other keyboard combinations.

Conversely, audio volume hot-keys are working, even the corresponding association in 'Global shortcuts' for Amarok is empty, while shortcuts for 'stop/pause/next...' are attached to the corresponding hot-keys but these are not working.

What am I doing wrong?

It is a fresh installation.
