I have had trouble using Blender 2.81 due to the way Elementary OS keyboard shortcuts interact with the software.

The Set key combo for Selecting multiple edgeloops is Shift + Alt + Click. This works in Windows 10, MacOSX, and other Linux Distros.

I have confirmed on Blender's stack exchange others are having this issue.

Is there a way to modify how the system-wide shortcuts interact with programs?

Go to System Settings > Keyboard > Layout and change "Switch Layout" to any other option besides Alt+Shift.
