Ctrl+Space doesn’t work in NetBeans [Ubuntu 12.04] [Solved]

I reinstalled Ubuntu on my laptop recently. Now I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS with Gnome 3 environment. Everything worked fine except one problem: the hot key Ctrl+Space (auto code completion) stopped working in Netbeans and other IDE. Of course, there was an alternative key combination Ctrl+’\’, but it is absolutely inconvenient! I’d prefer to kill myself looking for the solution on the Internet rather than to give in and use Ctrl+’\’. I’ve surfed the net for a while and found a solution to my problem!

The key combination didn’t work because some other program used it. To fix this I used gconf-editor.

  1. Open gconf-editor.
  2. Choose desktop -> ibus -> general -> hotkey.
  3. Open trigger parameter.
  4. Remove Ctrl+Space key combination from the list and press OK.

Now we can use Ctrl+Space without any problems. Let me know if you have any problems or/and better ideas. Good luck!
UPD: I returned to Ubuntu 11.10, cuz’ 12.04 turned out to be a total rubbish. I’m just wondering if Ubuntu 12.10 is any better…

Project Management with GNOME Planner

GNOME Planner is an opensource project management tool. Its goal is to be an easy-to-use no-nonsense cross-platform project management application.
