here are few:
alt-ctrl-(F1-F7):to switch between differnet terminals..or if gui is installed then to switch between gui and text mode
alt-ctrl-backspace:to kill xserver
ctrl-l:to clear screen of a terminal(similar to clear)
ctrl-c:to cancel a command
ctr-d:to exit from terminal
ctrl-r:to search backward for a command
ctrl-a:to go to the beginning of command line
ctrl-e:to go to the end of command line
alt-f:to go forward by one word on the command line
alt-b:to go backward by one word on the command line
ctrl-k:to kill the command line
alt-d:to delete one word to the right
tab:to enable auto completion

gui specific:
ctrl-q:mostly to quit from and application(like gimp,konqueror)
ctrl-w:to quit from nautilus
and what the hell GUI key shortcuts can be easily configured..so it is waste to explain those shortcuts.

KDE Shortcuts:

Ctrl-Esc: KDE System Guard process table
Alt-F1: K-Menu popup
Alt-F2: Run command
Alt-F3: Application control
Alt-F4: Terminated active application
Alt-F5: Quick application switcher
Alt-Tab: Switch between active applications

These are all configurable in KDE KControl

This isn't a keyboard shorcut, but it is shell usage and would be helpful.

Type Bin and the command you want to run, and it will run that command exactly as it was run the last time ou ran it (Bin is visually expressed as an exclamation mark, ie. !). So, lets say you are searching for 'named' to see if it is running, you may run a complex shell command such as:

ps waux | grep named | grep -v grep

Then, later you run several more commands, perhaps editing some zone files, and you HUP named to refresh the zones in memory. You could go back through your history, or you could do:

!ps

And that would run `ps` exactly how it was ran last time it was used. Resulting in:

ps waux | grep named | grep -v grep
