English discriminates 6000 millions people. Esperanto language is better.

That's nice, but this is still a mostly English-spoken forum, and I'm glad you posted in English because otherwise almost no one here would have been able to read your question.

Also, please provide some information on your OS and precise version (including desktop environment). Make it easy for people to help you. Thanks!

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!

I assume you are using the MATE desktop environment. Otherwise, why post the question to the Desktops & Window Managers - MATE forum?

Go to the Control Center and click Keyboard Shortcuts. Click Add, fill in the boxes, and click Apply. Scroll down to Custom Shortcuts, select the shortcut you just created, and press the keyboard shortcut you want to use. If you select a keyboard shortcut that is already in use, you will see a warning and be asked to confirm you want to replace the shortcut.

I use three calculators. I use Gnome-Calculator the most because the UI is clean, simple and familiar. I use Qalculate! because it is much more capable. And I use ConvertAll because (until it started throwing a Segmentation fault) it is my favorite unit conversion calculator.

Here are the keyboard shortcuts I assigned.
Program (Shortcut)
Gnome-Calculator (Calculator)
Qalculate! (Alt-Calculator)
ConvertAll (Shift-Calculator)

After upgrading from LM18.2 to LM18.3, ConvertAll would not run anymore.
After running ConvertAll via the Terminal as root (sudo -i), ConvertAll runs now.
sudo -i convertall
No more "Segmentation fault" errors.
