regression: gnome-terminal eats F10
Last modified: 2009-02-04 06:49:15 EST
Description of problem:
There is no way (well, except perhaps some gconf magic) to get F10 keypresses in gnome-terminal passed to the program running in the terminal.
Edit -> Keyboard shortcuts contains checkbox `Enable the menu shortcut key (F10 by default)'. When it is checked, F10 is eaten by gnome-terminal and invokes the main menu bar. When it is unchecked, F10 is eaten by gnome-terminal and invokes a context menu. In both cases, the program in terminal lose.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run mc.
2. Press F10.
3. Try that with `F10 disabled'.
F10 always brings some gnome-terminal menu.
At least in one case F10 quits mc. (Alternatively: The preferences contain an option to really disable F10.)
This is a regression, it used to be possible to make F10 work in terminal programs in the keyboard shortcuts preferences.
Apparently, this is fixed in gnome-terminal-2.24.3-1.fc10, or anyway it started to work.
