Description Thomas Moschny 2011-12-01 13:31:10 UTC
Description of problem:
I am using irssi in a xfce Terminal. Before the last gtk2 update, it was possible to switch windows in irssi using alt+number or alt+left or alt-right. This stopped working, and alt+number simply prints the number.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. in xfce, start Terminal
2. start irssi
3. /connect to some server, /join a channel
4. press alt+1, alt+2
Actual results:
Numbers are printed literally.

Expected results:
irssi should toggle between the two windows.

Comment 1 Thomas Moschny 2011-12-01 14:02:34 UTC
Could be this should be reassigned to vte and fixed there.

Comment 2 Thomas Moschny 2011-12-01 18:49:54 UTC
See also this bug: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=663779 , changing component to vte.

Comment 3 Thomas Moschny 2011-12-01 19:10:32 UTC
The (second, revised) patch mentioned in that gnome bug applies cleanly to vte and solves the problem for me.

I dearly missed my alt-d keycombo after my last boot, and arrived here, and here: bug 626792

I've downgraded gtk for now (though that might not work; I haven't restarted X yet to check)
