[fontforge-users] No keyboard shortcuts on precompiled Linux build of Fontforge

Mark Garland
I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, installed your FontForge PPA, and downloaded
and installed the 20141014 version of FontForge.  (I also needed to
install libtiff4_3.9.7-2ubuntu1_amd64.deb.)  There are no keyboard
shortcuts listed on the menus, and no key combinations seem to work.  Am
I missing something or is this a bug?

Answering my own question:  FontForge could not find the file
usr/share/fontforge/hotkeys/default, so I created the hotkeys directory
and copied the "default" file from the github site. Keyboard shortcuts
work as expected now.

Seems that this file was not included in the precompiled Linux build.

Same problem for me. I worked with the ubuntu 14.04 repositories without problems and after installing from the ppa today the keyboard shortcuts became unavailable.
