Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506256
cannot kill screen window with shortcut C-a k or C-a C-k
Last modified: 2009-09-25 08:50:43 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:
DEFAULT KEY BINDINGS
As mentioned, each screen command consists of a "C-a" followed by one other character.
C-a C-k (kill) Destroy current window.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
window will not be killed
window should be killed
The binding is changed in /etc/screenrc to C-a K. C-a ? shows all bindings.
Thanks Miroslav! A note in the man page might be handy to keep the confusion at a minimum.
The default config in screen-4.0.3-15.fc12 has C-a k binded to kill again.
