On Linux Ubuntu 14.04, MATLAB uses the weirdest hot key combinations I've ever seen by default. For example, to copy is 'Alt+W' and paste is 'Ctrl+Y'. I want the standard 'Ctrl+C' and 'Ctrl+V' combinations. How do I control this?

Yeah, it's set to emacs defaults, a lot of Linux purists prefer it.

Change the Shortcut's Active setting to Windows Default Set:
HOME > Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Active settings
