Thanks for your answer.

Other shortcut keys I have set work fine (I am on Linux Kubuntu 10.04)

If the OS was using Ctrl++ and Ctrl+-, it wouldn't necessarily affect other shortcut keys. Didn't think it likely that the OS would use those anyway, though.

I know, and that is why I tried out other bindings such has Alt+F2
and it does not work neither,

Ah, I didn't realise you'd tried these other things.

I googled around and found out that it/was
a long standing bug, that is zoom in and out cannot be bound to a key!

I am using LO 4.2. Did you try it out, successfully? If so which version
do you use, because I then might upgrade.

Afraid not; I usually do check before responding but was in a bit of a rush this time. I was thinking the problem was specifically with Ctrl++ and Ctrl+-, and assumed "Zoom In" and "Zoom Out" in the list of available functions would work if mapped! Just tried (4.0.4 and 4.3.0) and indeed they don't work :(

Another option (if you have a mouse with a scroll wheel) is to hold Ctrl while scrolling the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Not exactly what you were looking for, but it may be easier than using the menus or buttons at lower right.

Or set up a shortcut for View > Zoom, which brings up a dialog to adjust the zoom. Again not as convenient as zoom in/out, but another option...
