I am using LibreOffice, installed from the repos, on Xubuntu
13.10, but on my old computer it was whatever was in the repos for
Xubuntu 12.04, and the problem was the same. I just decided that it was
time to fix it.

The problem is that some keyboard shortcuts are not working,
specifically Ctrl-F12 (opens insert table dialog box) and
Ctrl-Shift-End / Ctrl-Shift-Home (selects to end / beginning of
document). However, Ctrl-Shift-Right / Left Arrow select to the
end / beginning of the current word, as they are supposed to, as does
Ctrl-a (select all).

I have checked in the settings editor for Xubuntu and Ctrl-F12 is set
to "Workspace 12", although I have only two workspaces enabled, and I
can't tell if "Workspace 12" is just part of a preconfigured list where
it is not actually enabled, or whether anything in the list is
automatically enabled. I also can't figure out what the keyboard
shortcut list in the settings editor actually does - e.g., if a document
window is open do the settings editor preferences override the
application keyboard shortcuts, or the other way around? 

As for Ctrl-Shift-End and Ctrl-Shift-Home, neither is listed in the
Xubuntu settings editor, so they should be completely free for
applications. More importantly, these two shortcuts do not work in
Gedit or my mail client's compose window either, although I can't check
the Ctrl-F12 in them because these applications have no table function.
And all of these shortcuts are enabled in the LO customization dialog

I'm tired of having to use the mouse/menus to select to the
beginning / end of a document or open the insert table dialog window.
Does anyone have any suggestions for places to poke around in? Can
anyone with LO on a 'buntu duplicate the problem?
