Smile changing keyboard shortcuts for switching tabs in gnome-terminal and/or tilda


Hi,

I am used to switching tabs using ctrl-tab and ctrl-shift-tab (or shift-arrow keys). gnome-terminal uses ctrl-pageup and ctrl-pagedown to switch between tabs. Is there any way I could change this setting to what I like?

Thanks,
Saby

Sorry, just got this fixed:

open gconf-editor, go to apps/gnome-terminal/keybindings , change value for next_tab and prev_tab

hopefully this would help someone

Care to enlighten us on how you changed it?

Did you manage to make it accept ctrl-tab, or did you give up and make it something else?

I changed it to shift-arrow by changing the strings to <Shift>Right and <Shift>Left . I just tried changing them to <Ctrl>Tab (or <Ctrl><Tab>) but it doesn't work

I marked this thread as unsolved since I could not find a solution for tilda, and Ctrl-Tab is not working for gnome-terminal
