Ubuntu 22.04: ctrl + ; (semicolon) or strg + . (dot) does not work

The shortcut “ctrl+;” or for German keyboard layout “strg + .” inserts the current date into Google or Excel spreadsheets. With Ubuntu 22.04 this shortcut cannot be used. To change this behavior, enter the following command in the terminal:


The IBus GUI opens. Then go to the Emoji tab and remove or change the keyboard shortcuts.

Emoji annotation shortcuts overwrite the shortcuts and therefore it was not possible to insert the current date. After the adjustment, the shortcuts work as usual again.
