This works here under linux/ubuntu gnome window manager.

What window manager and system do you use?

I can confirm the issue. I'm using 0.9.25 r12977M i386-linux-gtk (Ubuntu with FVWM2) and Lazarus set to English (default).

If the Editor Window has focus, _none_ of the main menu shortcuts work.

If the Lazarus Main Form has focus, only 4 main menu shortcuts work.

The following menus don't:

Here (Mandriva 2008) + KDE the menu shortcuts don't work too. They don't work with gtk 1 either for me.

Menu '&' shortcuts (like Alt+F) are not visible and not working.
Ubuntu 8.04 + Gnome
lazarus-, gtk2, fpc-2.2.4, fpc-source_2.2.4-0_all
(all installed to home directory)

Initially I installed FP and Lazarus from Ubuntu 8.04 repository (0.9.24/2.2.0/gtk1) - Menu '&' shortcuts was visible but not working.

Note: shortcuts are not working when editor window have forcus and not working when main window (with menu) is focused.

This was fixed in 0.9.27 version some time ago. Plase check out our svn sources and build lazarus from them. If it works ok then please close this issue.

Menu '&' shortcuts (like Alt+F) are visible but not working if main IDE window IS NOT focused - for example, not working if source editor window is focused.

If main IDE window IS focused, then Alt+F works perfect - open file menu. And all other '&' shortcuts are working fine.
