OK, so it's time to play "let's take a look at Bugzilla instead of immediately
saying it won't work" ;)
By simply searching for the open Klipper reports, it was possible to see at
least 3 duplicate reports about that problem (I've closed some of them), and
by reading them it is possible to see there was another bug report about this
problem which has already been marked as FIXED -- see bug 244620 .
There seem to be different issues involved here: the handling of that global
shortcut is not directly handled by Klipper anymore, but by the systray code
(for some reason, though, the option in Klipper's global shortcuts is still
present). In the end, you need to right-click the system tray, go to System
Tray Settings, click "entries" and assign the shortcut you want to Klipper.
I believe whether this was a good decision or not is beyond the scope of this
thread, as well as issues that might come up related to this change (the
global shortcuts thing, or the need to reassign the key).
But please consider looking things up before ranting about how nothing's going
to solve your problem next time :)
