The problem happens because Ubuntu activates Global Menu and sends Krita an unbalanced Meta-key event. To resove the issue you should disable the faulty feature of Unity:

  • Go to CompizConfig Settings Manager->Ubuntu Unity Plugin
  • Disable shortcut for “Key to show the menu bar while pressed”

Screenshot of the settings is in attachment 🙂
