The escape key does not work, regular escape binding (bind) to Shift-Escape
I installed Zenwalk Linux today. I found that the Escape key is not bound (bind) to anything (at least as far as I know), but rather what Escape would normally do (close the program, open the vim command line, etc.) Shift-Escape binding (bind) to.
While it’s not a big deal, it’s an extra keystroke that I’m not used to not having the interest in relearning just for one machine.
Does anyone know how I can correct this?
I’m using qwerty/us.map.
Here is information about dumpkeys related to Escape.
keymaps 0-2,4-6,8-9,12 keycode 1 = Escape alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape shift alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape control alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape
The keyboard is not broken.
As I mentioned in my (malformed) comment on @petesh, I think I need to set Escape to equal to Meta_Escape:: in a way that dumpkeys look like this
keymaps 0-2,4-6,8-9,12 keycode 1 = Escape keycode 1 = Meta_Escape alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape shift alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape control alt keycode 1 = Meta_Escape
What should I do?
I’m having a similar issue. If you are using KDE plasma, open System Settings > Shortcuts, locate
Activity Manager and delete
Esc > under
