Description of Problem:
gnome-terminal uses some keys for gui instead of sending them to the tty
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start gnome terminal, start mc, try to quit (F10 key), or try to get help (F1 key)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal
2. Start mc
3. press F1
Gnome-help starts with gnome-terminal help
This is questionable but I consider this a bug, try getting help in ntsysv, mc,
vim, whatever or quitting from mc. I understand this is supposed to be a
feature, but I concider it to be a bug. Esp since it is on by default.
Edit->Keybindings and turn it off, that's what Edit->Keybindings is for.
gnome-terminal uses standard key shortcuts for apps,
with the exception of adding "Shift" to some of them e.g. Ctrl+Shift+C
Help really should be the standard binding, since it's after all used for
Hmm, I don't agree with you, I don't want to play open bug-close bug, but could
you discuss this with the rest of the RH develop team. I've the feeling this
isn't as obvious a choice as you say it is.
BTW I never use gnome-terminal. I always use xterm. I always check all the terms
shipped with RH because some releases ago I've worked closely with RH to get all
the keybindings working as expected (home,end,del,bs etc).
And as such I'm worried that this will confuse some users.
It's been discussed a good bit, internally and on mailing lists.
It's always confusing to change something, sure, but the general approach we're
taking is that it's more important for apps to be consistent with each other
now, than for each app to be consistent with past versions of itself.
Well, I'd turn this into an RFE: add text to the "title" page of gnome-terminal
help (or make a second title page for help got by F1), which shows where to
turn it off. This could make happy some users that don't feel like browsing
through all the dialogs ;-)
