CTRL+A Problem..


I think it may be effecting GTK programs but in opera i'm alright.. Im currently using XFCE and Zenwalk default install and when ever I try to use ctrl+a in Xchat for example it just shoots the cursor back to the beginering of the sentence.

Quite annoying how would I correct this? as far of the other distro's i've used its never done it before.

Sounds like Xchat uses Emacs keybindings (Ctrl-E should put you at the end of the line if this is the case).

See if this gets you any further:

You're correct, my whole GTK config is set to use the EMAC's binding which I dont want. - Any painless way to change this?

Have a look in .gconf/desktop/gnome/interface/%gconf.xml

You're looking for something like:
Code:
        <entry name="gtk_key_theme" mtime="1194649444" type="string">
                <stringvalue>Emacs</stringvalue>
        </entry>
Either get rid of the entry block, or change Emacs to Default.

You'll probably have to log out and back in for this to take effect. I'd check the file again once you've done that, as I don't know if/when gconf writes to its config files.
