Set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme to "Emacs"
Comment 2 Stephen Martin 2004-11-25 14:43:50 EST
This should be in the documentation. Probably in section 10.17 in place
of the bit that says:

Text editing shortcuts Select one of the following settings:
    GNOME Default: Use this setting for standard shortcut keys.
    Emacs: Use this setting for Emacs shortcut keys.
