Best Answer

    1. Go to System settings... -> Keyboard Layout -> Options...,
    2. unwind Miscellaneous compatibility options,
    3. check Special keys (Ctrl+Alt+<key>) handled in a server.

    Please, be aware it will also disable some other shortcuts (e.g. ctrl+alt++ and ctrl+alt+- used to switch video modes).
