Ibus toggle key (Super+Space) not working in Mint 18.3 (Mate edition)

Hi all,

I have been using Ubuntu 16.04 gnome edition. Gnome 3 seems very buggy to me and I prefer the old Gnome 2 style personally. So I thought I would Linux Mint Mate edition a try. So far, it has been way more stable than Ubuntu and I have seen no crashes until now.

I use Avro Phonetic, which is a Bengali input tool. There is no official repository for Ubuntu versions 15.04 and onwards. Rather a guy named Mateen created a .deb package which can be used to install the software. Here is the link to the package- ... -3_all.deb.

I downloaded and manually installed it. There were some dependency issues. So after installation, I ran "sudo apt-get -fy install". Everything was fine.

I can write in Bengali using Avro phonetic, there is no issue with writing. But I cannot toggle between Avro phonetic and English US by the usual Super+Space key, which was not an issue in Ubuntu 16.04. I also tried to change the key combo in the Ibus menu. But nothing worked. I have to click on the Ibus applet in the taskbar and change the input language.

Anyone facing the same issue? Can someone suggest me a solution?
