Fix: Control+Space does not work on Eclipse on Kubuntu 14.04

Problem : Ctrl+Space does not trigger auto-suggest in Eclipse, on Kubuntu 14.04.

Reason: IBus captures ctrl+space keystroke.


1. Right click Ibus Icon from task bar

2. From the preferences, remove the option Ctrl+Space as the short cut for next command. (Or simply quit this program every time you boot up)
