interesting to see this problem on lxqt 0.10, too.

i am using the latest git build of lxqt and i am experiencing the same problem. i am relatively certain qt5.6 is the cause of this problem. it used to work perfectly in qt5.5.
qt5.6 is suppposed to be a LTS release...

it is also crazy to see ctrl+c and ctrl+v working in firefox and other non-qt applications.
also, i can copy and past between qterminal (with ctrl+shift+c) and firefox.
it is great to see the "ctrl+c" keyboard shorcut gone from pcmanfm-qt's menu. go to the edit menu --> copy. to the right of the word "copy" there should be a display of the keyboard shortcut for copying ("ctrl+c"). but that it gone. which means pcmanfm-qt and other qt applications only disply the working keyboard shortcuts.
overall, this is a really strange problem!

unfortunately, i do not have a solution or workaround. if you find one, please share it!
