Description walton 2004-01-06 01:01:25 UTC

Description of problem:
In RedHat 7.2 the terminal emulator (I may have used kde and kconsole)
had one line scrolling keys, shift-arrow-up and shift-arrow-down, that
I found EXTREMELY useful.  It also had shift-page-up/down that were
very useful. 
In RedHat 9 the terminal emulator (gnome-terminal) has
shift-page-up/down but does not have shift-arrow-up/down. 

I cannot find the parameter file or control mechanism that contains
the key mapping defining shift-page-up/down.  Redhat tech support
seems to think this does not exist (see service request 279367).
Is there a way to define shift-arrow-up/down to scroll one line? 
Redhat tech support thinks there is none. 
The shift-arrow-up/down keys are so useful they should be added. 
Ability to change these key bindings is not strictly necessary but
should be added.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnome-terminal
2. Press shift-page-up/down (page scroll happens)
3. Press shift-arrow-up/down (nothing good happens)

Sounds fair, the only possible issue is whether shift+arrow is already
used to mean something else in any interesting contexts. I can't think
of anything.

This bug needs to be filed on bugzilla.gnome.org as well, we would
generally make this change in a gnome.org context and then inherit it
in a GNOME release.

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem?

Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-05-31 19:38:09 UTC

This bug has been in the NEEDINFO state for at least a couple of weeks now.  I'm
going to close the bug, but if you can provide the required information feel
free to open a new report.
