[ubuntu] problem with hidden file key(s)

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Not sure how to solve this: When I click the checkbox in the View menu to get the show hidden files option in Nautilus, it works. All the hidden files appear. But when I try to use the key-combo option which is Control-H, it doesn't work. Anybody know how I can get the key option to work? (Hardware)
