I've just upgraded my distribution from 13.10 to 14.04, which seems to have broken global keyboard shortcuts.
They are still present in the "Keyboard settings" as before. Although media keys are affected, so are other global shortcuts like Ctrl+Alt+T for Terminal. Other keyboard shortcuts work at an application level still, however.
I am also currently using Gnome Shell as my desktop environment, although the Alt+F2 shortcut for shell commands still seems to work.
Does anyone know of how this could have been caused?
