Description Leonid Kanter 2005-03-30 14:15:37 UTC
Description of problem:

If Russian xkb layout is active, it's impossible to use keyboard shortcuts like
ctrl-c (copy), ctrl-v (paste) etc. It makes this build of openoffice absolutely
unusable for somebody who was using other office (microsoft) or other build of
openoffice.org for a long time.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome keyboard properties and select Russian layout
2. Start openoffice writer and verify that keyboard produces kyrillic characters.
3. Try to use ctrl-c and ctrl-v for copy and paste text
Actual results:

Nothing will happen

Expected results:

Ctrl-c and ctrl-v should work for copy and paste

Additional info: 

This bug was not reproduced with openoffice.org build from

Looks like it's not openoffice.org bug, because it works great in KDE. It's
gnome bug, and it's hanging on gnome bugzilla for a long time, see

no idea what component shoud be chosen :(
