Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 201501
/desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme is being ignored
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:39 EST
Description of problem:
Installed FC6 rawhide since it's the only thing that will install directly
on this Mac Mini. However, it looks like changes made in gconf-editor to
/desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme are now being ignored (unlike in FC5)
so when I set it to Emacs, I still get the broken keybindings which render
most apps impossible to use.
Ie. even after making this change, ALT-f still opens up the "File" menu
instead of jumping one word forward on the command line as it is supposed to.
Can we please have this absolutely vital feature brought back in!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 6 - rawhide (August 6, 2006)
Set /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_key_theme to Emacs, try any app,
including gnome-terminal and hit ALT-f
Steps to Reproduce:
Looks like this can be disabled under Edit->Keyboard Shortcuts, but the BugZilla
is still valid since Firefox and other apps don't respect the theme setting.
And gnome-terminal should do so automatically too.
alt-f works fine here with the Emacs key theme and e.g. gedit.
Strange, I did a yum update and now even xchat seems to work with it ....
firefox still doesn't respect it, but thats passable.
Closing again - sorry for the noise.
