Description Stefan Assmann 2009-06-16 08:26:09 EDT
Description of problem:
When inside a screen session it's normally possible to kill the current window with the keyboard shortcuts C-a k or C-a C-k. In F11 this does not work, typing either of these combinations has no effect.
excerpt from man screen:
       As mentioned, each screen command consists of a "C-a" followed by one other character.
       C-a k
       C-a C-k     (kill)        Destroy current window.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start screen
2. create new screen window with C-a c
3. try to kill the window iwth C-a k
Actual results:
window will not be killed

Expected results:
window should be killed

The binding is changed in /etc/screenrc to C-a K. C-a ? shows all bindings.
Comment 2 Stefan Assmann 2009-06-16 09:10:51 EDT
Thanks Miroslav! A note in the man page might be handy to keep the confusion at a minimum.
Comment 3 Miroslav Lichvar 2009-09-25 08:50:43 EDT
The default config in screen-4.0.3-15.fc12 has C-a k binded to kill again.
