Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190990
Make ^- send ^_ instead of -
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
^- (control-minus) inserts simple '-' to the terminal. I'm a joe user (and joe
uses ^_ for "undo") and this is the most annoying thing. I'm trying to convert
myself to gnome-terminal and I can't find any means to bind keys in it unlike
any terminal I used over the years, so I just patched vte to do what I want and
what Linux console does for years. If Linux console does something, it can't be
bad, right? :)
Please apply it, I won't even believe if you tell me someone or something
depends on ^- being just "-" :)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Patch is against vte-0.12.1-1.fc5.1

Actually xterm does the same, since gnome-terminal emulates xterm I believe
gnome terminals behaviour is correct. I'm a joe user myself and I have always
used CTRL+SHIFT+- as undo.
Although I must admit this is a bit inconsistent with redo which is CTRL+SHIFT+6
(CTRL-^) where just CTRL+6 works too.
Looks like it fixed itself. It's fixed in vte 0.16.9, but I don't know exactly
when it happened. Should I close it as fixed in CURRENTRELEASE or something?
