Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 912
Emacs Control-V redefinition
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
I noticed on 5.2 that somehow the control-v key has been
redefined from page up (i.e. move the cursor down a page) to
paste. This is driving me up a wall because I cannot seem
to find where this was (re)defined. Downloading emacs from
prep.ai.mit.edu and recompiling yeilded the same result. I
am not sure if someone from MIT did this or someone from
Redhat did this and placed it in a system config (lisp)
I was unable to observe this behaviour using emacs in console mode.
Are you running emacs from within X and if so, what window manager are
It never occured to me to check the window manager. I am using after
step. I did a telnet from another machine and it was defined as I
expected. I am not sure how to look into the definition files for
after step. I will find it though - could it be that someone wanted
to make it more MicroStuff compatible (i.e. Control-v is a paste a
friend of mine told me who uses win-95... not admitting that I
actually use Windows mind you... understand..?).
I'll have to rip it out if it is there though.
