I used to be able to use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+← → to cycle between workspaces and Ctrl+Shift+Alt+← → to move windows to different workspaces in ubuntu 12.04.

Now for some reason it doesn't work. I think there might be a conflict of the shortcuts, or Ubuntu is recognizing the keyboard shortcut at all.

How can I tell what event, if any, I am triggering with any specific keyboard shortcut?

Go to Settings → Keyboard → Shortcuts.

You can actually bind shell commands and even entire script files to keys. Some of the key shortcuts are caught by the display manager directly to switch workspaces, for example.

The problem is that when I go to settings -> keyboard -> shortcuts I see the shortcuts set as I expect, but the shortcuts don't work. – Idr Nov 7 '12 at 4:20
