Description Leonid Kanter 2001-07-10 15:12:48 EDT
Description of Problem:

In gnome-terminal "Home" and "End" keys generate wrong esc-sequences

How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. start gnome-terminal
2. start mc
3. press "Home" or "End"

Actual Results:

You'll see "H" (for home key) and "F" (for End key) characters in command line.

Expected Results:

Pointer line must be moved to first or last file on the panel.

Additional Information:

In other terminals (konsole and xterm) home and end keys work as expected.

in xterm and konsole following sequences are generated: ^[[1~ (home) ^[[4~
(end). But gnome-terminal generates ^[OH for home and ^[OF for end keys.
TERM value is the same - xterm.

This patch actualy does the same thing like kdebase-2.1-konsolefixes.patch from
kdebase package.

Here is changelog entry from kdebase:
* Fri Mar  9 2001 Preston Brown <pbrown@redhat.com>                            
- fix home and end default mapping in konsole

Why not do the same with gnome-libs? With this patch I'm quit happy with mc,
pine and other console stuff.
