shift+f5 and shift+f6 doesn't work in konsole

Reported by: tectep Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: Future Releases
Component: mc-config-ini Version: 4.8.11
Keywords: shift f5 f6 Cc: zaytsev, lzsiga@…
Blocked By: Blocking:
Branch state: no branch Votes for changeset:


learn keys shows that shift+f5 corresponds to f17 (should be f15) and shift+f6 corresponds to f18 (should be f16). Version 4.6.1 has no such defect, so it looks like regression in mc.

I think it has to do with missing keybindings... Did you test on master???

comment:5 Changed 10 years ago by tectep

tested on master commit fc08c10012dec2ccecd4889d601446f94546eb1b
it works! So I'm waiting for pre5 )

Ilya, I guess we can close it now as invalid since it was due to the missing keybindings in master and user reports that testing on master fixes his issue???

I think changset 91c7dbb71c9c8a5792287de3f70553076d94602b fixed this issue. Tommorow I try to apply this patch to pre4 to say precisely.
IMHO now this issue can be closed.

Sorry if it isn't the right place, but actually there is a little problem with konsole: Shift+F5 (ESC[15;2~) act as F17 -- It is correct in general, but bad for mc-users who expect Shift+F5 to be F15 like it is in xterm and other common emulators.

The solution seems to be simple: this part should be added into file mc.lib:



Why do I need this: I'm the maintainer of a terminal-emulator (dtelnet), and I would like to offer my users a terminal-type, which is suitable for linux. The requirements are:

  • in terminfo, 'kbs' is 'Ctrl+?' not 'Ctrl+H' (xterm is gone)
  • it has a -256color variant
  • mc supports it, including mouse and special keys like Shift+Arrows, Ctrl+Home etc

konsole seems to be suitable, except for this little change.
