Isn't ctrl-space some magic key in GNOME (maybe open menu or something)? What happens if you go to the gnome-terminal preferences and ensure that all keyboard shortcuts are passed through?
Comment 2 John Morris 2005-01-06 11:48:37 EST
I've ensured that any C-SPC shortcut is turned off in the 'Edit/Keyboard shortcuts...' config panel, and don't see anything about keys in the 'Edit/Current Profile...' config panel. There's some chance that C-SPC is being intercepted somewhere else (I thought maybe in Gimlet or Keyboard Indicator, but removing those from the panel is no help), but X-based emacs receives C-SPC just fine. This is new behavior since FC1, by the way. Thanks!!!

Hmm I just tested this over vnc and mark set did appear. Which keyboard layout are you using? Do you have any non default keyboard settings (e.g. emacs keys)?

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test release, reopen and change the version to match. Thank you!

I can not reproduce this bug in Fedora 8 with gnome-terminal-2.18.3-1.fc8 Fedora Core 3 is not maintained anymore. If you can reproduce this bug in Fedora 7 or Fedora 8 please reopen this bug.
