Ubuntu – Keyboard shortcuts stop working after upgrading to Ubuntu 17.10


I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.10 and wanted to boot with the unity environment, but when I did, I noticed that the keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl+Alt+T for the terminal were not working(only when I boot in unity).

How can I fix that?

The comments on the bug linked there suggest to switch from LightDM to GDM3 until the bug is fixed.

Run sudo apt-get install gdm, and then your password when prompted, or run sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm. (Taken from here)
