C-SPC not passed to shell?
Last modified: 2008-02-03 17:22:35 EST
Description of problem:
C-SPC isn't passed to programs running in gnome terminal; most
importantly, to emacs.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start emacs -nw in gnome terminal
2. Type C-SPC
3. Should see 'Mark set' in minibuffer, but don't
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?
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.
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.
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.
