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)...

    I'm not really sure if there's anything we can do here, it sounds like a bug. (Bug reports are also generally considered off-topic.) Have you reported it at SourceForge? – Torbjørn T. Apr 7 '16 at 8:17
  • @TorbjørnT. you're right, I think it's a bug report. Should I then delete my question? (I've just posted a ticket on SourceForge.) – ebosi Apr 7 '16 at 8:20
  • Either that, or you can add a link to the bug report and we can close the question. – Torbjørn T. Apr 7 '16 at 8:27

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a bug report (reported at sourceforge.net/p/texstudio/bugs/1732). – Torbjørn T. Apr 7 '16 at 8:33

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

    I had the same problem - non-working shortcuts - in Ubuntu 16.04. I switched to the Qt4 version, and now the shortcuts are working, but there are other problems - the tools in the toolbar are invisible (I can click them, but I do not see them). – Erel Segal-Halevi Aug 3 '16 at 18:51

    Henry's comment here: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/185760/… solved the problem: close TXS, run sudo apt-get install libqt4-svg and restart. – Erel Segal-Halevi Aug 3 '16 at 18:57
