fix for hotkeys not functional in non-latin keyboard layout in 13.10 / 14.04
tested on ubuntu 14.04, jvm7 and rubymine 6.3
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:attente/java-non-latin-shortcuts
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
restart unity-settings-daemon
now ctrl+c, ctrl-v etc should work in most java applications like IDEA, RubyMine IDE even on russian keyboard layout

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS

The command $ restart unity-settings-daemon responds with an error:

restart: Name "com.ubuntu.Upstart" does not exist

If I run it with sudo $ sudo restart unity-settings-daemon then the output is

restart: Unable to connect to Upstart: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused

How do I revert this? I think it made my copy paste a little slow
