[Tex/LaTex] TeXstudio on Ubuntu 14.04: some shortcuts are not working, when some others do


I'm using TeXstudio 2.10.8 (that was compiled with Qt 5.2.1 R), running on Ubuntu 14.04.

Issue: Some default shortcuts of TXS (e.g. Ctrl+C, F6, etc.) are working, when some others (Ctrl+E, F8, etc.) don't.
How to fix this?

I have found two related tickets in the sourceForge repo (#1467 Shortcuts does not work after upgrade to 2.10 and #1495 Keyboard shortcut for segment preview doesn't work ). However, the suggested solution is to wait for a newer (relative to the date of the post) release (that is TXS 2.10.4) since there was a bug due to Qt 5.5. But the version I'm using (2.10.8) is newer (and the most up-to-date public release as far as I can tell)…

Best Answer

As explained on TXS webpage:

For Ubuntu 14.04 use Qt4 Version.

Thus, I stored my personnal settings (own shortcuts, etc.) stored in ~/.config/texstudio/texstudio.ini and made a fresh install using the right version.

sudo apt-get remove texstudio
sudo apt-get install texstudio-qt4
