How to setup custom keyboard shortcut to launch terminal on KUbuntu?

PS. I have tried setting up shortcut that would issue xterm command, but that shows raw terminal, that looks a lot differently from the one that can be opened from the menu.

I didn't have CTRL+ALT+T by default after a fresh install of Kubuntu 12.04

Here's how I assigned in.. right-click the Kickoff Application launcher icon -> Edit Applications -> System -> Konsole -> Advanced Tab -> Current Shortcut Key

The "Kickoff Application Launcher" is the blue "K" button icon usually at the far left of the "Panel" bar usually at the bottom of the screen. For ex-Windoze users, it's the "start button". – Rhubbarb May 27 '14 at 22:05

Ctrl+Alt+t opens a konsole window.

I have Kubuntu and this doesn't work for me. – Mien Nov 7 '12 at 13:04

The one from the menu is called "Konsole" so use whatever keybinding you have for the quick launcher and then type Konsole and it will come up as a choice and you are good to go.
