[Bug 1489205] Re: ctrl+alt+left+up desktop switching doesn't work


I now have two keyboards connected:

1 Logitech K270 wireless via a USB dongle
1 built-in Lenovo X220 laptop keyboard

My logitech one works fine, the built in one doesn't work.

Therefore this bug is the actually related to keyboard hardware and not
Unity.  It's weird I grant you, but there it is.

Bug description:
  I filed a new bug as requested in Bug #1108342

  ctrl+alt+<arrows> works for up, down, left, right, up+right,
  down+left, down+right. It does not work for up+left.

  When I filed 1108342 I mentioned that this behaviour used to work in
  12.04 LTS. I no longer have an easy way to boot 12.04 LTS on this
  hardware to verify that it did work, but that's the most logical
  release for me to have installed on this machine when it was brand

  How do I test for the possible lack of hardware support for
