[Bug 1246583] Re: All hotkeys of LibreOffice don't work in non-English keyboard layout [ubuntu 13.10]


*** This bug is a duplicate of bug 1226962 ***

In ubuntu 14.04 libreoffice I have removed libreoffice-gnome and
libreoffice-gkt packges and it have solved the problem. Now when i use
Hebrew layout the kaybord shrtcuts are working.  My problem before this
removal was only within libreoffice applications so i think this bug is
not a duplicate of bug #1226962

  All hotkeys of LibreOffice don't work in non-English keyboard layout
  [ubuntu 13.10]

Bug description:
  Hotkeys (Ctrl+b, Ctrl+s etc) in LibreOffice are language dependent and
  work in English language only. While writing in any other language
  i.e. any Cyrillic, it's impossible to use hotkeys, they just don't do
  anything. Switching to English input language enable hotkeys once
  again. This is very frustrating as user needs to switch language to
  save document, to make it bold, or italic, etc.

  This was not experienced in Ubuntu 13.04.

  Steps to reproduce:
  1. System Settings > Text Entry.
  2. Add another keyboard layout beside English [In my case it is Bengali (Probhat)] 
  3. Now launch Writer.
  4. Switch the keyboard layout from English (US) to Bengali (Probhat) by pressing Ctrl+Space.
  5. Press Ctrl+B to change font weight to bold.

  Font weight does not get changed.

  Font weight should change to bold.

  none other system hotkeys work as expected. I.e. Ctrl+s to save, or Ctrl+b to subscript, or Ctrl+i to italic etc.

  The only way is to -
  1. change the keyboard layout to English
  2. then press desired hotkey
  3. then switch keyboard layout back to Bengali.

  The issue is critical, as it make writer very slow for keyboard-only
