Bug Description

I want Ctrl-Alt-T to be a hotkey for "Run a terminal" in Gnome. Choosing "Key combinations" from "Preferences", I can set it, but pressing it does nothing. However, if I create a new command in that window, with "terminator" as run string, it works. If I assign the "XF86Reload" key to "Run a terminal", Terminator opens too (it is set as default terminal emulator in Preferred Applications.
Some more investigating: Ctrl-T works fine. Ctrl-Alt-W, Ctrl-Alt-U, Ctrl-Alt-S all work fine.

thanks for the report, that works fine for me, I've just assigned that combination to open gnome-terminal, which keyboard layout are you using? does it works fine with a new user created on your system? thanks.

It works with the new user (guest user which I got from the user switcher). I'm using Russian and English layout, ans also SCIM. However, running SCIM and adding those layouts in guest doesn't reproduce the problem; neither does killing everything SCIM-related solve it under my account. What might be the difference?

I have the same problem and I'm using a UK keyboard and UK locale.
Pressing Ctrl Alt and T does nothing.

I've noticed that ctrl-alt-t never works on with left ctrl in anything (including xev), but right ctrl works fine. I also have my left ctrl and caps swapped.

Ctrl+Alt+T is the default shortcut to open a terminal in Unity or GNOME.
