Ubuntu Ctrl+Z problems solved

After Installing Ubuntu 20.04 on my Home PC and setup everything needed as developer and started doing my work – writing code in PHPStorm, I have faced an issue with my keyboard shortcuts.

As developers we do to much get backs in coding process and Ctrl+Z is used more than in any process of writing in PC-s so without it we would feel the emptiness of our keyboard.

So i started looking in web for similar problems and could not found the solution. Tried this link from: https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360000397779-STRG-Z-deletes-the-line-instead-of-an-undo but weakness of information did not help. I’ve tried stack-overflow many posts but could not found the solution at all.

Digging deep in my setup history on my brain memory it came to me that i have added other languages on my Region & Language settings and have changed the order of Languages in the interface and this was my problem.

How to solve Keyboard shortcut problems for different languages in Ubuntu:

  1. Go to Ubuntu settings from the top right corner.
  2. Region & Language

  3. And make the order as in the image so that all default keys be in English if your keyboard is English Version.


If your keyboard is in different language, please make sure to order first the real language your keyboard is made for.
