Key F10 is giving me window manage menu window
Last modified: 2012-10-12 08:52:12 EDT
Description of problem:
When I run 'mc' and I press the key F10 to get the quit question dialog for midnight commander I get also a wm menu windows opened as well - and pressing 'enter' usually leads to opening a new g-t window (since I do not expect wm menu window opened and I activate new terminal option through this).
This used to work without a problem since I've not enabled
menu shortcut in keyboard shortcuts g-t options.
Now it doens't matter in which state this toggle button is,
there is always wm menu window.
When toggle button is in enable mode - 'mc' doesn't get F10 key
(and one has to use Esc+0 to get quit query dialog).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run 'mc'
2. press F10
mc shows quit query dialog, and wm menu is displayed as well.
only 'mc' quit dialog being shown.
I have exactly the same issue on Gentoo linux with gnome-terminal.3.2.1 .
I think this is a general GTK issue as F10 opens the menu in all GTK applications, even though I have set
in gconf-edit to something else than "F10" ("Ctrl-Shift-M" in my case), but this setting seems to be ignored. Is there already a solution / related bug avaible?
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This problem is still present with:
gnome-settings-daemon is using gsettings for its backing storage nowadays, not gconf anymore. Try
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface menubar-accel "F12"
or something like that

Hmm - tried - no help
$ gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface menubar-accel
And just a side comment - you can't be really serious this now 'the Gnome path' to properly configure gnome-terminal to allow users to use F10 key right ?
This bz is getting quite old and with:
I'm still not able to get usable F10 key inside terminal (i.e. to quit 'mc')
There is probably wrong handling of functional keys - because when I press F10, then gnome-menu is showed and mc dialog is showed too.I would to previous behave - when terminal-menu is active, then F10 is handled by terminal menu, and when menu is invisible, then F10 is handled by appliacation executed in terminal. Because mc is important application, then this bug is very important for me.
