Noob Question: CTRL+C won't work any more (Xorg6.8)?

This is very odd, for some reason I can't seem to CTRL+C any more from my PC directly. CTRL+(anything else) works though.

I'm sure this isn't a major system problem since I am able to ssh into my machine from my laptop and I'm able to CTRL+C from there. I'm sure it's probably some configuration problem in my xorg.conf in the keyboard section, here's a paste of it below:

Section "InputDevice"

    Identifier	"Keyboard1"
    Driver	"keyboard"

    Option	"XkbModel"	"pc101"
    Option	"XkbLayout"	"us"


This issue should be a simple one ( Hopefully )

Thanks in advance,

type ssty -a at the command prompt and see if there is an entry for intr ^C

if there isn't then issuing
stty intr ^C
will set it.

If that works, make that entry in your .profile or .bash_profile startup file
Better even might be the /etc/profile so it will work for everyone

No luck

stty -a has an entry with ^C and I did stty intr ^C, no luck after that either.

Here's a paste of what stty -a shows:

speed 38400 baud; rows 24; columns 80; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^?; kill = ^U; eof = ^D; eol = <undef>;
eol2 = <undef>; start = ^Q; stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W;
lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;

Ah, I figured it out

I assigned copy to CTRL+C for konsole, it seems like KDE will consume CTRL+C for copy first before it handles it as a signal.
