Ubuntu – Ctrl -C, Ctrl -V not working in different keyboard layout


When I am in English, Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V works fine when I need to copy paste. But when I turn to Greek, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V and basically no shortcut almost works in Greek.
So each time I have to alt shift and go back to English in order to user Ctrl+C to copy something. How can I apply this to the Greek keyboard profile?


I also realized that when using NetBeans IDE 7.4,
I can copy and paste in Greek but I can't use the tonic system of the language over the words. In Aptana studio I can't use Copy and paste Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V
When using gedit everything works fine. Different software use different keyboard layout settings?

This is a known bug:

Workaround for some system hotkeys and two layouts (English and non-Latin): rebind all hotkeys in your local layout. For example instead of Ctrl+Alt+T use Ctrl+Alt+τ (Greek tau). That hotkey still works with the English layout. If you use English and two different non-Latin layouts this workaround helps only with one of them.
