Good morning
I am trying for years already to get friendly with linux, but have not
much luck with it.
Right now, I am (again) experimenting.

A new installation of (X)ubuntu 14.04 on two different machines comes
with LibreOffice.
However, the shortcut keys I am used to are different or non-functioning.
E.g., F11 is suppoed to bring up the styles menu.
-> Linux -> has to be Alt+F11

AFAIK, F11 brings up the Styles menu on both Ubuntu & Mint.

Ctrl+F10 -> show non-printing characters
-> Linux -> brings up the file menu

AFAIK, Ctrl+F10 shows non-printing characters in Writer on both Ubuntu & Mint.

Perhaps the difference is XCFE.

Is there some consistent, COMPREHENSIBLE system of assigning these
shortcut keys?
Or do I have to find out and learn one by one through trial and error?

(File) Tools / Customise - Keyboard tab, will let you look at all the
keyboard shortcuts and change them.
