Have you submitted this feature request to the maintainers of joe?  They're
still working on joe-2.9.8 - might be possible to get it in before the next
official release of joe (if the maintainers like it) before the next release
(hence, all later versions of joe will contain the feature).


Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2003-02-20 02:22:07 EST
I've also entered the bug there. Good to hear that joe is maintained again.

Comment 4 Lon Hohberger 2003-02-20 11:42:23 EST
Unfortunately, this doesn't work in Konsole or on Linux virtual consoles.

I wonder if there's a more generic way of doing this...
Comment 5 Hans de Goede 2003-02-21 05:51:33 EST
No there is NOT an easier way, linux console doesn't send any special ESC-
sequences for cursor keys with modifiers. The fact that it doesn't work in 
konsole is a konsole bug, which I already have reported (konsole is one big 
bug, see bugzilla)
Comment 6 Lon Hohberger 2003-06-17 08:43:01 EDT
joe-2.9.8-2 will be in rawhide soon.  I've included the request, but I'll have
to remove the keybindings if they break anything (I didn't do extensive
testing).  You may download the packages immediately from:

Comment 7 Lon Hohberger 2003-06-17 08:45:00 EDT
Whoops, only got half of the request in.
Comment 8 Lon Hohberger 2003-06-17 09:20:27 EDT
Packages with the whole patch:


Sorry for the confusion.
