    Linux Mint KDE 16 - Copy & paste shortcuts stopped working


    Completely weird problem here. The primary keyboard shortcuts don't work. The secondary DO work. I can also copy & paste using mouse but who does that???
    It worked until it stopped, I don't know what changed.

    The primary (CTRL+C/X/V) are configured as the defaults.

    I have a shortcut for a show desktop widget set to META + D, that doesn't work either. Copy & pasting works on Chromium, but not on Kate text editor, Dolphin, even on Yakuake
    (the terminal manager, there the shortcuts have an added shift, like CTRL + SHIFT + V)

    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    I do! I never use the keyboard apart from entering text or numbers.

    OK, this is SO weird.
    I had 2 layout languages. Russian was the default (I'm learning the language and for the on screen keyboard to work, I need to keep it as default).
    Latin american Spanish, the secondary.

    Most of the time I use it in Spanish.
    So, the error was present when using it in Spanish.

    I just had the crazy idea that maybe it was using the keys in Russian for the system commands.
    I deleted Russian and now it's working!!!

    Should I report a bug? I mean, if the text is entered in a language but the system commands in other, it sounds like a bug to me, it drove me completely crazy!
