[PLUG] Ubuntu upgrade help

I finally got around to "upgrading" the Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system that I use 
daily to the 12.04 LTS release. I've been putting it off because I knew that it 
would break everything user-interface related that I depended on. :-( And of 
course I wasn't disappointed. Or rather, I was. Whatever.

I got some of the gnome env back, and I'm struggling through the font problems. 
However all of my keybindings are toast and I still haven't figured out how to 
reconfigure them. The two biggest ones are navigating the virtual desktops and 
launching a terminal.

I don't see any way to do the latter anymore. And the compiz Settings Manager 
has settings for switching to specific viewports via keyboard or directional 
switching via mouse, neither of which I want! I want to navigate left/right/up/
down via keyboard. This was simple to do before I "upgraded".

Suggestion? FYI I'm not using Unity.
